We launched a new show on JellyTelly today (Tuesday the 21st) called The Fantastic World. It's pretty darn silly. Go check it out and let us know what you think! We'll be running new episodes every Tuesday for the next 10 weeks or so, so stop by every Tuesday and check out the latest installment. (For those of you who really love Drive Thru History, our prior Tuesday show, it will return after The Fantastic World's first 10-week run, then the two shows will alternate.)
Hurray! New stuff to watch!
No new news about Big Idea or JellyTelly partnerships today, but stay tuned. Lots of interesting conversations going on. (And send a few prayers our way if you would. We're looking at some big opportunities, and we'll have to make some important decisions. Prayer is always appreciated!)
Wow, this is great. Can’t wait to hear more about Big Idea and JellyTelly.
Can’t wait to see the Fantastic World episodes. I’ve seen these guys in action live and they are hilarious! Great message, too.
Wow – Fantastic World was a lot different from what I was expecting! Pretty cool… We will continue to pray for you guys Phil. Keep up the good work. We miss the ability to watch several days of programming at a time – but if the change was to pave the way for a freemium model or something else that makes money for JT – then we’re with you all the way Phil.
it was a great show i would love to show it to the kids in my sunday school class…it is something im always pushing God made you special (just like in veggietales) and this totally goes along with it most deff send some prayers your way
Thanks for updating us.
From a marketing standpoint, I would contend that having only 1 day’s worth of programming available is more likely to create a recurring viewership. Viewers are more likely to create a daily time-slot to place their kids in front of JellyTelly if they know that the content is for a “limited time only” (rather than thinking that they can go on a binge and watch the previous week’s worth of programming).
Keep us updated.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with FW, but I was plesantly surprised. I expected it to be a bit more silly, but it really had a lot heart. Production quality was really good too. I’m interested to see where it goes from here.
I’m not sure about FW, will have to wait and see. I remember not being sure about Kidmo and now it’s one of are favorites. I am sorry to not be able to watch the days when we want. Our family is not always able to watch on the day the show airs. We will miss that feature. Having said that JT is a big hit in our house.
You can watch previous days content by clicking on the television at the top of the screen.
I was actually pleasantly surprised at Fantastic World. I wasn’t sure how it was going to play out. They’re following in the footsteps a bit of Sid & Marty Krofft which I grew up watching as a kid; Sigmund the Sea Monster, H.R. Puff N Stuff, The Buggaloos… nice job overall. :O)
What can we say about The Fantastic World? We knew from the first Sunday Bill and Charles were here at Roswell United Methodist church that they had a gift for communicating with children. The project that grew out of this was Molly Pickens and the Rainy Day Castle. The series has been a great hit. A mother told me her child became “very upset” in the Peter Pan Ride line at Disney World during recent spring break week . She was upset because she was at Disney World and thought she would be missing the finale of the FW series on Sunday morning!
Most importantly, our kids are getting that love can transform the world, and they are putting it into action.
We look forward to being able to purchase their next curriculum series and hope there will be much more to come. What a joy to see this project go to Jelly Telly.
The need for this kind of quality children’s programming is unbelievable.
God Speed Bill and Charles!

What happened to the full screen option?
i dont even have today’s episode. Mine is always behind? WIERD
Thanks for the heads up. When I clicked on TV icon I only saw two days. But I checked today and now I see all the days again. Must have been a glitch.
That’s awesome! Fantastic world is really cool! I will definately keep Jellytelly and Big Idea in my prayers; it would be great to see Bob and Larry and Buck Denver on the same network:)
You still can watch multiple days!
Just click on the video icon (even if you’re already in video mode)
Pray for you guys as you make some big decisions!
I’ve noticed that you can no longer scroll through the entire day’s programming, but must watch it all in succession. It makes sense, and I’ll support the change, but I do miss that feature. There have been a lot of times that I’ll watch it with the kids but want the hubby to see a clip (or a Bentley Bro song) when he gets home. And he isn’t going to sit down and watch the whole thing… my three year old also got obsessed with the “Sports Clinic” shorts and wanted to watch them over and over…(maybe his first crush???)
This is a random side note, Phil, but we did an event for teen girls over the weekend, and did a drama based on your book Sidney and Norman (but with people instead of pigs 🙂 ). The girls LOVED it. HUGE hit. Thanks for sharing such a special story.
FW was a very pleasant surprise. I thought it was going to be, well, (stupid). Please don’t tell my 4 year old I used that word. But, I was surprised to find out that while it was silly, it had a great message. I esp. liked the box maker, he seemed so tender and loving towards Molly. Also, it really makes my kids laugh. Now, I am laughing too. Loved the Encouragement as a French word bit. Honestly, never would have given it a second glance, except it is on JT. LOVE THE JELLYTELLY!
Thanks for the fun and great shows!
My teenagers! are coming home from school asking to see Jelly Telly! (with the 2-yr. old, of course. Bonding time, you know.)
Fantastic World has been a very nice surprise. We are looking forward to the next installments. I also like the changes in over all presentation. Much smoother. Very nice.
We are very thankful for the JellyTelly team and are praying for you.
My son (8) and I love Jellytelly. Our only complaint is that there is no archive. If we miss one day there is no way to go back and see it. This is especially true for the movie of the week. I would love to see the missed episodes from the beginning. This would be a nice added feature. Keep up the good work, I and J
When will more Jellytelly shirts be available? I and J
My son wants to know what the name of the Jellytelly jellyfish is? Anyone know.
I found out that the ninja Jelly is Niko, but the other one does not have a name. (Thanks Liz). Ilene
So what’s the latest on the “Phil Vischer front”? Anything of interest?
My son and I watched JellyTelly today and Buck Denver was hilarious. My son couldn’t stop laughing about him “saying” thermometer. Keep it up!!! I and J
Hey Phil, anything new? We miss you…
I mentioned wishing there was an archive. I realize you can see the last 5 days, (except the movie of the week). But we would love to be able to go back much further. We would have loved to see the Christmas stuff we missed etc. We were gone this weekend and missed the movie of the week and my son was really disapointed he couldn’t see it. Still love it though! I & J
