The PJs is a stop motion animated television series created by Eddie Murphy, Larry Wilmore, and Steve Tompkins. It centers around life in a Detroit urban public housing project. The show starred Eddie Murphy, and was produced by Imagine Entertainment by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, The Murphy Company & Will Vinton Studios in association with Touchstone Television.
40 episodes were aired during the show's three-year run. There were still 6 episodes left over, which were produced by Warner Bros. Each episode took over two months to produce, owing to the laborious stop motion process. Originally broadcast on FOX, the show later moved to The WB in 2000-2001, but was soon canceled due to its high budget. The last three episodes were not aired until 2003. Reruns previously aired on Trio, a cable television network.
