The Huggabug Club is an American educational TV series for children. It aired on PBS Kids.
The series was co-created by veteran actresses and sisters Audrey and Judy Landers, as well as their manager/producer/mother Ruth Landers, who also served as executive producer. The series was also broadcast in South Africa. The Landers sisters co-wrote over 150 original songs for the series.
In addition to Miss Audrey and Miss Judy, the program features full-body puppets who magically appear with the help of a computer: Uncle Huggabug, a cowboy-insect; Miss Oops-A-Daisy, a clumsy flower; and Auntie Bumble, a grandmotherly bee. The cast also includes the "Buggsters", a group of multi-cultural kids who sing and dance.
An advisory board of teachers and a child psychologist helped to guide the series towards "life skills"-teaching themes. The themes were: integrity; initiative; flexibility; perseverance; organization; sense of humor; effort; common sense; problem solving; responsibility; patience; friendship; curiosity; cooperation; and caring.
