The fourth season of popular preschool series Pocoyo is set to stream on YouTube and YouTube Kids, marking the first-ever digital exclusive launch of a Spanish production.

Series producer Zinkia Entertainment will be releasing 26 new episodes on YouTube and its kid-friendly app on November 25 at 8 p.m. The first episode will debut in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, and will be followed by English and Latin Spanish-language versions on November 28.

Pocoyo is no stranger to the video-sharing site, with 5.7 million subscribers and more than eight million views of series’ clips. And while the series has aired in more than 100 countries, the YouTube exclusive launch allows all of those countries, and more, to see the show as soon as it comes out.

Also new for the series is a female character that  will share the limelight with Pocoyo. (In fact, more than half of the team of 50 that created is comprised of women.)

Pocoyo is set in a 3D space, usually with no backdrop, where the four-year-old titular character interacts with his animal friends that include a duck, an elephant and a dog. The series has been on air for more than 10 years.
