Moonbug Teams with Cartoonito for First UK Linear Deal


Moonbug Entertainment Ltd., one of the largest digital media companies in the world, announced a partnership with Cartoonito, the fastest growing preschool network in the UK. Launching from April 5 and airing on weekdays at 5 p.m. GMT, all available episodes of Moonbug’s flagship show, CoComelon, will be accessible, delivering hours of engaging and enriching entertainment to preschool aged kids.

“This partnership is a true milestone for Moonbug. Cartoonito as a premium children-dedicated linear channel is the first in the UK to pick up the digitally-originated CoComelon,” said Nicolas Eglau, Managing Director EMEA and APAC, Moonbug. “This cooperation not only widens the reach of Moonbug programming, but is also a further vote of confidence in digital content, underscoring the trust that Moonbug has built with its globally loved IPs.”

Featuring 3D animation and catchy tunes, CoComelon follows JJ and his siblings as they go on fun, relatable adventures, playing, exploring and learning along the way. CoComelon models positivity and good behavior and supports preschoolers’ learning through music, providing parents an opportunity to teach and play with their children as they watch together.
