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.
