NEW YORK, June 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Skyship Entertainment, creators of the YouTube channels Super Simple Songs and Super Simple TV, is teaming up with the nonprofit educational organization Sesame Workshop via its Sesame Studios and Sesame Street YouTube channels, to create an exciting playlist of videos about animals for kids! The cross promotion initiative will appear exclusively on YouTube between June 19th to July 2nd.
The two YouTube content creators will be releasing brand new animal-themed videos every day for the first week, featuring and hosted by some of the channels' leading characters, including Elmo (Sesame Street), Marvie (Sesame Studios), Tobee (from Super Simple's Sing Along with Tobee series), and Milo (from Super Simple's Milo's Monster School Vlog).
The videos include classic nursery rhymes, children's songs, and educational series, and are an opportunity to introduce fans to four popular channels with an extensive catalog of stories and songs kids love. The week will also see the launch of Super Simple's cheerful new animated series, Mr. Monkey, Monkey Mechanic.
"Sesame Studios has been producing some incredible programming for their YouTube channel, and we're thrilled and honored to be collaborating with them on this animal-themed playlist that we hope will introduce both audiences to some very special content," says Skyship co-founder, Troy McDonald.
The initiative will be promoted across social media platforms including Instagram and Facebook, and Super Simple Songs will also be live streaming to its audience of almost 6 million subscribers from its Toronto studio, encouraging viewers from around the world to sing along to a selection of fan favorite animal songs!
"Teaming up with Skyship is a great way to bring our viewers together with engaging new offerings that are sure to appeal to kids and families," said Kay Wilson Stallings, Senior Vice President of Creative Development, Sesame Workshop. "We are always excited to introduce Sesame Studios subscribers to new content and new places to find family-friendly videos and educational fun."
