Continuing to strike a chord with preschoolers, Disney Junior has launched a new music video-style short-form series called DJ Melodies.
The series of shorts come from the creative mind of video/music producer and creative director John D. Boswell, a.k.a. melodysheep, and mash up footage from Disney Junior series Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.
Kicking off today on Disney Junior at 6:25 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. ET/PT, the shorts will also be available on WATCH Disney Junior, DisneyJunior.com and the Disney Junior YouTube channel in conjunction with their linear premiere dates.
The clips are set to lively musical remixes by Boswell, who is best known for his Symphony of Science web series, as well as other popular YouTube mash-up videos. His Mr. Rogers tribute video, The Garden of Your Mind, won the 2013 Webby Award for best viral mash-up. He’s currently up for a Webby for his Robin Williams’ Seize the Day remix.
Boswell is the latest social media artist to collaborate with Disney Junior. He joins meme master Parry Gripp, who performed the DJ Shuffle music video. Disney Junior is also in development on a project with poetry slam champion IN-Q, producer TAS and songwriting/production team Rock Mafia, which will debut later this summer.
