The series originally consisted of ten three-minute segments that aired on a rotating basis. The shorts were designed to help comfort preschool viewers with bedtime themes and transitional issues such as separating from mom at the end of the day, healthy routines, sleeping through the night and being comfortable with the lights out. In 2011, an order for new episodes in a half-hour time slot expanded the series to two eleven-minute segments, for a total of 26 broadcast episodes. The episodes debuted in October 2011. Henson and Sprout now co-produced the show with Sixteen South Limited in [[Ireland|Northern Ireland]].<ref>[http://www.northernirelandscreen.co.uk/news/2578/the-jim-henson-company-sprout-team-up-with-sixteen-south-to-produce-pajanimals.aspx Northern Ireland Screen]</ref> Since the premiere of these episodes, the original shorts have not aired. The series aired on [[Nickelodeon|Nick Jr.]] in its co-producing country, the United Kingdom. The full series focused on issues of more general concern to a young audience, such as nervousness about a dentist's visit, or learning to share comfortably, but retained a backdrop of bedtime rituals. On July 7, 2012, the show made its broadcast premiere in the US as part of [[NBC|NBC Kids]], a Saturday morning programming lineup programmed by Sprout.<ref>[http://www.sacbee.com/2012/03/28/4373692/nbc-will-launch-nbc-kids-a-new.html Sprout press release]</ref> Return to Pajanimals.
