Flexitoon was founded in 1979 by puppeteers Craig Marin & Olga Felgemacher.
Flexitoon helped put Nickelodeon on the map with Ace Award winner "PINWHEEL", (prompting Time Magazine to call the Pinwheel Puppets "the best"); they turned the Weekly Reader characters into dimensional stars with "KIDS-TV" on Showtime; starred as "DJ KAT" on FOX (won Outstanding Kid's Show Award from New York State Broadcasters); and helped develop and perform the popular Juke Box Band on the multi-awarded children's series "SHINING TIME STATION" starring George Carlin. Flexitoon was awarded the first National Endowment for Children's Educational Television Grant and created and produced the special "GOIN' UP" for Thirteen/WNET. Flexitoon won the 1996 Henson Foundation/UNIMA Award for Outstanding Broadcast Puppetry. Their many commercials include the Talking Stain for TIDE which was voted the Top Three Super Bowl commercial of all time. Along with films, corporate/trade shows, and international live appearances, Flexitoon has in development several new and exciting productions for television and stage.
