Suiting Up Rock Stars!

For both Hanukkah Rock and Holiday Rock we wanted the boys of Rock Sugar to be sporting seriously decorative duds.  To accomplish this, we reteamed with costume designer Leighton Bowers, who had previously helped us bring the super-suit in He’s Barack Obama to life last year.  As if that wasn’t cool enough, she has also […]

Meet the Rockers, Rock Sugar!

We had the venue for our Holiday Rock, now we needed a bona fide rock band to make the production as authentic as possible.  Lucky for us, our buddy Jess Harnell just happened to head up a kickass group of rockers who had precisely the skills (and the hair) we were looking to feature in […]

Rock Location Scouting!

Welcome to the first part in our making of the Holiday Rock videos!  For this epic production we wanted to give the most realistic rock concert experience possible.  The best way to do that?  Hit up some real venues!  We made calls and visits all over LA, leaving no historic venue unturned.  The Viper Room, […]

ElfYourself 2010 is Here!

We have so. much. stuff. to share after our big launch yesterday, but we might as well start with the biggest and best of all… ElfYourself is here! Two new dances join six classic ones and for the first time ever you can purchase them all together on high resolution DVDs.  Give ElfYourself 2010 a […]

Kazoo Guy Does 4th of July!

You’re a Grand Old Flag is our first of six kazoo videos releasing this year, and dang is it fun! We found Mister Tim, the talented gentlemen starring in the video, on the interwebs, where he became famous for his rocking rendition of Enter Sandman. Yes, that’s all the same guy, and yes, he really […]

The Rap on Dad

Father’s Day is looming this weekend and we’ve reacted accordingly by updating our library of eCards with new stills and videos galore.  Among the coolest new cards we’ve debuted this week is Dad Rap, a poppin tribute to pop that puts the ‘hood’ back in ‘fatherhood’.  Fun fact: that bling? It’s wooden. Hey, it’s not […]

Heads Up! One Month Till Valentine’s Day!

It’s one month’s time until Valentine’s Day, and while we won’t be launching our newest JibJab Valentine’s Day cards until February, now is the time to order hard good gifts in order for delivery by Feb the 14th.  Ready to avoid the lameness of stopping by the drug store the day before and picking out […]

Chopped Tree Footage

Our first idea for our Tree Slaughter video was a bit more heavy on the “slaughter” than a season’s greeting needed to be. We toned it down, but the original will live forever in our minds (and on this blog!).  Warning, the following lumberjack attack is for mature audiences only.

HONIKA ELECTRONICA

This weekend marks the start of Hanukkah! Huzzah!  And with the season, we get another amazing music video from for JibJab friend and collaborator Eric Schwartz aka Smooth-E! Check out his latest Jewish jam “Honkia Electronica” below! Got a hankerin’ for more Hanukkah stuff? Check out our collection of Hanukkah eCards here. Want more Smooth-E? […]

Christmas Carol Concepts

We’ve posted another Facebook album full of art on our … Facebook.  This time we chronicled the dickens out of our Charles Dickens masterpiece, A Christmas Carol!  Click on to see a story of Christmas past!

Our RagTag Christmas Tree

We busted the old tree out of the box this week, adorning her with candy canes, ElfYourself ornaments and the occasional Nasty Santa doll left over from a few years back.  For a star, we made good use of a JibJab beanie cap with a dart stuck on it.  That’s just how we roll here.  […]

A Flock of Turkeys

When designing a character that gets as much screen time as the turkey from Be Thankful, we go through many concepts and renditions. Check out our new Facebook album full of fowls that could have been!

We’ll be highlighting these pieces and the late nights that went into creating them as we plow through the next few months, but for now, check out our filtering system for the holidays, which will […]
