Genius Brands International has acquired approximately 230 new episodes of programming, including the anime “Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V,” based on the trading card game from Konami. 

In addition to the episodes of “Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V” now being offered on Kartoon Channel!, Genius Brands has also licensed the English language rights to episodes and Spanish language rights to episodes of the YouTube series “My Dog Chocolo,”  from Productora Atiempo Ltda.

The Company has also acquired episodes of the 3D comedy series “Invention Story” from Mondo TV, which follows a fox inventor who tries to fit into Carrot Town, a place full of rabbits—hopefully winning them over with his heart and his gadgets; and episodes of “Mysteries of Alfred Hedgehog” from Muse Entertainment, a series which encourages science exploration and teamwork.

“Led by Yu-Gi-Oh, these new program acquisitions truly showcase the quality and diversity of content we are striving to bring to young audiences discovering the Kartoon Channel! and offer opportunities for a wide range of ad partners to drive revenue for the channel,” says Andy Heyward, chairman and chief executive officer, Genius Brands International. “We are extremely proud of the rapid expansion of Kartoon Channel! and the positive responses we are receiving from kids and especially parents, who feel we are providing a safe destination for their kids’ entertainment. Our reach now extends to over 100M U.S. television households and over 200M mobile devices; we have our first iOS app which has thousands of positive reviews and 5-star ratings and we have new apps launching on Android, Roku and Amazon Fire, with the same interface as on iOS. We are continually looking for unique ways to fill our offering with the best children’s programming in the marketplace, with titles such as ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!,’ ‘Babar,’ ‘Angry Birds,’ ‘Roblox,’ and our upcoming ‘Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten.’ This is just the beginning of our mission to build what I like to call the free Netflix for Kids.”

The announcement follows the June 15 launch of its new free digital Kartoon Channel! across multiple AVOD and OTT platforms, and the subsequent debut of its first Apple iOS app.
