Wilson & Ditch: Digging America is a Jim Henson Company digital studio web project produced for PBSKids.org.

The original webisodes feature two comical gophers exploring America on a cross country adventure. The two brothers, Wilson and Ditch, ride in their green-powered van while learning about American culture, history and geography. The duo shares their experiences with viewers as they visit some of the country's top cities, national parks and attractions.

In addition to the webisodes, Wilson and Ditch's new site will also feature original comics, travel blog, on-location audio podcasts and other resources from the brothers' adventures.


The animated webisodes star Wilson and Ditch (performed by Brian Henson and Paul Rugg) who are brought to life using the Henson Digital Performance Studio, the proprietary technology that allows performers to puppeteer and voice digitally animated characters in real time. Wilson & Ditch: Digging America was created by Joe Purdy and Craig Bartlett. The web content was written by Purdy and its animated segments directed by Bartlett.
