It’s not just waistlines that are expanding this holiday season—Kidoodle.TV is growing its kids offerings throughout December. The New York-based AVOD service inked new agreements with Sockeye Media, Federation Entertainment, CAKE and Banijay Group’s Zodiak Kids that will see its content offering increase by over 300 episodes (for more than 16,000 total episodes).
Launching this month, the additions include New York-based producer Sockeye Media’s Mother Goose Club (pictured), which features educational programs for preschoolers with a focus on nursery rhymes and interactive lessons. A number of offerings from UK distributor CAKE—including Thumb Wrestling Federation, Lah-Lah’s Adventures and Skunk Fu!— as well as Paris-based distributor Federation Entertainment’s Ollie and Moon and a raft of shows from French distributor Zodiak Kids (Tee & Mo, Totally Spies and Magiki) will also bow throughout December.
This round of acquisitions wraps up a year of deals for Kidoodle.TV, including an agreement with Indian preschool content creator ChuChu TV for animated music videos and nursery rhymes. Earlier this year, the AVOD inked a deal with Amsterdam-based producer and distributor Endemol Shine Group that covered kids series Bananas in Pyjamas and Mr. Bean: The Animated Series.
