‘CoComelon’ with speaking characters and a live tour

One of Netflix’s most popular children’s series, “CoComelon,” a giggly musical series with repetitive lyrics, released a new special on Monday, giving many parents, like Arinze Odira of Windsor, Ontario, some respite.

“I was very busy and my wife was sleeping,” explained Odira, whose daughter is less than 13 months old. “I put on ‘CoComelon’ and she was there for almost three hours. I had the time to do whatever I wanted to do.”

Odira was so grateful he took to Twitter to thank him: “I owe you a bottle of whiskey to the producers of ‘CoComelon.’ Thank you for helping millions of parents around the world.”

It might not be as flashy or as high-profile as Netflix’s adult programs like Bridgerton or The Crown, but CoComelon is a key show for the streaming service. Besides the US, it has reached the top 10 in countries like the UK, the Philippines, Canada and South Africa.

“CoComelon” and Netflix are also planning to make it big in 2023 by releasing a new series called “CoComelon Lane” in which the characters speak. The episodes are prepared by the main character JJ, a toddler with a tiny lock of hair on his head and two teeth.

“He’s talking straight into the camera, so he’s talking to the kid at home. It really feels like he’s inviting you on a play date with him and his friends. He’s asking you to join him on his day trip,” said Heather Tilert, Netflix’s preschool content manager, who says CoComelon Lane is geared towards slightly older kids.

“Cocomelon really hopes to be able to continue with kids who have already fallen in love with JJ and friends and guide them through their development. So, we really see ‘CoComelon Lane’ as something for 3 to 5 year olds.”

The new hour-long special, titled “Fun With Family and Friends,” releasing this week, consists of 20 new musically animated short films. It is the first “CoComelon” content available exclusively on Netflix. They’ve also upped their music game, licensing songs that parents will recognize, including “Twist and Shout” and “Stand by Me,” but also touching on skills for reaching preschool milestones, including colors, shapes, movement, and even emotion.

CoComelon was originally founded in 2005 by Jay Jeon, a father in California who had the idea of ​​using songs to teach his own two children. He started uploading the videos to YouTube. Those videos eventually garnered billions of views and “CoComelon” was acquired by Moonbug Entertainment in 2020.

It has launched the franchise with spin-offs, a podcast on Spotify and a new live tour called CoComelon Live! ” Kicking off September 16 in Baltimore.

Figuring out exactly what makes “CoComelon” so popular with kids is “the big question,” said Andy Yearmen, Moonbug’s managing director of Americas, but he believes it’s due in large part to putting the kid first stands to entertain parents instead of going over the heads of the children.

“Everything is very thought out from a preschooler’s point of view. So not what an adult would consider important to a 3-year-old, but what a 3-year-old would consider important.”
