Amazon Kids+ and Moonbug Entertainment are kicking off a new content partnership with their first joint project, an original production of Arpo Robot Babysitter, based on the YouTube show Arpo, and a new Arpo mobile game.
Arpo is an animated show based on slapstick humor for children 3-7 years old with a non-dialogue format that reaches kids who speak all languages. The original production, which will stream exclusively on Amazon Kids+, takes viewers on a series of adventures as Arpo faces new challenges, between caring for Danny’s adopted Korean baby sister Cookie and adjusting to a team of new robots built by Mom. The Arpo YouTube channel boasts more than 5 million subscribers, 110 million views per month, and 1.9 billion lifetime views.
“Our partnership with Amazon Kids+ expands Arpo’s world and takes children on new adventures,” said Andy Yeatman, Managing Director of the Americas at Moonbug. “Arpo’s unique format makes it accessible to kids across the globe, making them laugh as they meet new characters and sharpen their problem-solving skills.”
“The arrival of Arpo into the Amazon Kids+ offering is a joyful example of our commitment to deliver content that kids and families will love,” said Veronica Pickett, Head of Amazon Kids+ Original Series. “The heart and humor at the core of Arpo creates so many ‘LOL’ moments that are inspiring the world of entertainment we’re building with the new original series and game.”
