Spacetoon has announced a new partnership with Moonbug Entertainment to bring CoComelon which recently exceeded 100 million subscribers on YouTube.
The new TV show will be localised and dubbed in Arabic. The shows are categorised into two types: dialogue shows and non-dialogue shows. CoComelon will assist children to learn the basic concepts and learn new words to enrich their linguistic competence.
Commenting on this partnership, Kamel Weiss, the Strategic Business Development Director of Spacetoon said: “We are thrilled to team up with Moonbug to bring the most successful global kids’ titles to the Arab audience and create a new home for parents and kids where they can enjoy an entertaining experience with safe content, and get to watch their most beloved characters across various platforms.”
“We are very impressed by the global growth of CoComelon; it is a very promising and attractive brand for us. We see great opportunities to widely expand the reach of this brand in MENA and increase the visibility of it in the stores,” added Kamel Weiss.
Nicolas Eglau, Head of EMEA & APAC, Moonbug said: “Parents and kids alike have grown an affinity for our content and it is critical that we provide them with the accessibility to enjoy it whenever and wherever they are. We are excited to bring some of our biggest shows to MENA and look forward to working with Spacetoon to create and produce new products for fans.”
