It looks like Wubbzy is continuing to wow preschool audiences around the world as he moves into new broadcast homes.
Already airing in 60 countries, the Bolder Media-produced series, in association with Film Roman/Starz Media, recently launched on Israel’s HOP TV, Al Jazeera Children’s Channel recently and Germany’s Super RTL.
State-side, where it airs on Nick Jr. and Noggin, second-season viewership is up more than 50% versus the first season, so Nick has now begun airing the show at 1 p.m. weekdays on Nick Jr. Meanwhile, Discovery Kids Latin America, Nick UK, Nick Australia and ABC Australia have all picked up the second season.
Wubbzy’s also topped the game charts on www.nickjr.com, where his game draws 300,000 daily gameplays. On the DVD front, more Wubbzy collections will soon be released at retail, including A Little Help From My Friends (February 3), Pirate Treasure (March 24) and Wubbzy’s Big Movie (May 12), with a fourth release set for later this year.
