About Oscar's Hotel for Fantastical Creatures

Oscar’s Hotel for Fantastical Creatures is a partnership with Jim Henson Co., New Form Digital, and PJ Liguori—YouTube vlogger KickThePj—whose story was selected through a YouTube incubator contest. Following the adventures of a young man sent to manage his uncle’s zany, supernaturally inhabited hotel, Oscar’s Hotel stars PewDiePie, Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Patrick Stewart, Elliott Gould, and an all-star cast of both film and internet stars voicing Henson’s signature fantastical puppet creations. The show consists of six 11-minute episodes available on Vimeo and combines the styles of YouTube (quick-paced, entertaining stories) and film (high production value and A-list talent). At premiere, the show broke the platform’s single-day video-on-demand sales record.
