YouTube Kids has struck an exclusive deal for new episodes of Spanish children’s series Pocoyo.
YouTube and its children’s app, which is now live in 26 countries around the world, will be the exclusive home to season four of the preschool animated show.
It marks the first time Pocoyo will be available to viewers first via YouTube rather than a broadcaster. The new season will be available from tomorrow in Spanish and Portuguese and from November 28 in English.
The series follows curious, fun-loving boy Pocoyo and his friends as they search for challenges, new friends and stories to learn.
The new episodes will see another female character, while Pocoyo will leave his traditional white-background environment to enter different worlds.
“Season four of Pocoyo is truly a global show and will launch in English, Spanish – both neutral and Castillian – and Portuguese. It is the perfect show for us,” said Nadine Zylstra head of family and learning for YouTube Originals.
