The Jim Henson Company will not relocate to China, instead the studio behind such shows as Sid the Science Kid and The Hoobs might set up an animation studio in Tianjan, China–predicted to be one of the biggest media cities in the future. The JHC has signed a memo of understanding with Nine Eyes Stone Animation Production, Tianjin Dream Land Animation Creative and Tianjin Hi-Tech Investment Guarantee too work on a joint venture project. So far the JHC has only signed on with partners. Animation is gaining popularity in China and it is ripe for the JHC to get into the new market.
