Moonbug Entertainment Acquires YouTube Sensations CoComelon and Blippi to Become World's Largest Digital Kids Media Company

Bloomberg - Are you a robot?

Kids’ content giant Moonbug, which owns some of the most popular children’s channels on YouTube, has added to its deep funding coffers and expansive portfolio with a $120 million funding round, and the acquisition of two new properties: CoComelon and Blippi. The funding round was led by Goldman Sachs Growth Equity and Fertitta Capital, with participation from existing investors Felix Capital and The Raine Group. Two-year-old Moonbug says it will use funds to acquire even more children’s properties. And as far as its latest purchases are concerned, Moonbug says it will look to invest in production, expand global distribution, pursue new storylines and characters, and cultivate licensing opportunities and merchandising deals. It isn’t wasting any time. Moonbug says it has a Cocomelon toy line that will be available in coming weeks. (Cocomelon announced its foray into merch in February). And as far as Blippi is concerned, Moonbug is also readying toys, apparel, and other licensing partnerships that will launch this year. Cocomelon is one of the world’s most-viewed YouTube channels on a monthly basis, and surpassed an unthinkable milestone in May: 1 billion views in a single week. Now, the channel counts 89 million subscribers and 3.5 billion monthly views -- thanks to its 3D animation (pictured above) featuring beloved characters including Baby JJ, YoYo, and TomTom. Blippi, for its part, is a live-action series with 24 million subscribers across its portfolio of YouTube channels. It counts 250 million monthly views across its flagship eponymous channel, and has also spawned a toy line and live shows in the United States.
