Kerpoof

“A standard-based, Web-based creative multimedia suite for students.”

On February 19, 2009, Disney announced that it had acquired Kerpoof Studios, an educational and entertainment media group that specialized in exploring creativity through image creation. The company was lauded for its emphasis on child safety and the educational aspects that made it a favorite in many classrooms. After Disney’s acquisition in 2009, four activities were released in the new combined URL: URock2 Digital Painter, DoubleDuck Comic Creator, Animoids, and JONAS and High School Musical Photo Mashup. However, as Disney’s focus shifted to mobile application development, the decision was made to close Kerpoof in April of 2014.
