Now Five of Moonbug’s Popular IPs are Available on China’s Leading Video Platform
LONDON, Aug. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Moonbug Entertainment Ltd., today announced its continued expansion with Tencent, bringing the global kids YouTube preschool series CoComelon to Tencent Video, China’s biggest streaming platform. 180 episodes of the playful and educational 3D animated series are now available in both English and Mandarin to over 900 million users in China.
“Continued global expansion for our kids’ brands is our mission at Moonbug, and this marks our second strategic partnership with the leading video-on-demand platform Tencent Video,” said Nicolas Eglau, Managing Director EMEA & APAC, Moonbug. “China is an essential market for us, and adding our most successful IP to Tencent’s content offering is a massive testament to our global ambitions for the brand.”
Being the second biggest YouTube channel in the world generating over 2.6 billion monthly views, CoComelon teaches children how to take on everyday activities and role models positive behavior. Kids can easily relate to the universal themes and familiar narratives such as eating your vegetables, learning to tie your shoes and getting ready for bed. With its bright and bold colors and cheerful nursery rhymes and phrases, CoComelon attracts children to sing and dance along with Baby JJ and his siblings as they learn letters, numbers, animal sounds, colors and more.
Moonbug initially partnered with Tencent in September 2020 to make four of Moonbug’s leading IPs, Go Buster, Playtime with Twinkle, The Sharksons and KiiYii available to the platform’s users.
