Who We Are

At KazooBadoo, everything we create is based on our mission to bring entertainment to learning. When we live in a universe full of wondrous things, why is learning so often viewed as a chore? Because traditional lessons many times lack relevance, resonance, excitement, and compelling storytelling. We are here to change all that!

KazooBadoo was founded by:

Sherry Gunther Shugerman, a multiple Emmy-Award-winning producer, who has a demonstrated track-record of creating and delivering top quality hit entertainment content for kids.

Her television credits include: Rugrats, The Simpsons, Dexter’s Laboratory, PowerPuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, and more. Sherry is also a successful serial entrepreneur with a passion for executing innovative ventures in the kids’ tech, digital, gaming, and toy spaces. Her creations include: ZooKazoo virtual world for kids ages 6–12, and The Beatrix Girls, the world’s first girl group of dolls who play in a pop-star band (multi-platform kids’ IP with success in global retail toy sales, YouTube, original music, and a dozen licensing deals.)
