Moonbug Entertainment Acquires Blippi, CoComelon

The acquisitions have allowed Moonbug to become the largest digital kids’ media company.

Moonbug Entertainment has acquired two kids’ programs to become the world’s largest digital kids’ media company.

CoComelon, the world’s most-viewed YouTube channel with more than 3.5 billion average monthly views and Blippi, which averages half a billion views on YouTube monthly and boasts a successful toy line and sold out live shows in the United States, have been acquired by Moonbug.

“It is a tremendous accomplishment to acquire two of the world’s most loved children’s shows,” says Renè Rechtman, co-founder and chief executive officer, Moonbug. “We are excited to support their continued growth and expand the brands into global entertainment franchises. It is a transformational step for our business.” 

Moonbug has built new relationships with more than 100 streaming platforms on a local and global scale including Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV, Sky and Roku and has category-leading viewership on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. The acquisition of CoComelon and Blippi boost Moonbug’s monthly subscribers to more than 235 million globally, exceeding 7 billion average monthly views on YouTube alone. 

Earlier this month, Moonbug made another big move by launching a “Little Baby Bum” channel on PlutoTV.
