About Juno Baby and Juno Jr.
All DVDs, CDs, books and Apps published by The Juno Company feature original music composed and performed by live orchestral musicians, and a cast of lovable puppets that interact with children through creative and educational storylines. The Juno Baby and Juno Jr. puppets were designed and created by Belinda Takahashi and built and pupeteered by the talented hands of Ex Henson who was the talent behind some of your favorite Muppet and Sesame Street characters*. The main characters of the Juno franchise are: Juno, a young girl who loves music, Rai Rai, Juno’s brother, a rabbit named Bunny, a cat named Indie, a caterpillar named Murphy and a bee named Buzz. In Juno Jr., the characters live in the musical world of Harmonia Springs where trees are made of cellos, cars are shaped like bass clefs and lamp posts like French horns, street signs flash "Waltz" and the train that takes them on their journey is made up entirely of musical instruments. Through their journeys, the characters learn new musical concepts as they sing to the original, orchestral music.
