It appears that Genius Brands International just might have a hit on its hands.
Following years of development, the animated series Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten is finally available for streaming via Genius Brands Kartoon Channel! According to the company, the first two episodes have already racked up more than 4 million views as series star and executive producer Arnold Schwarzenegger makes the rounds on a press tour in support of the show. Earlier this week, Schwarzenegger appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss the project and today he’s set to appear on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
“More than four million views of the show in our premiere week blew the hinges off our expectations,” says Jon Ollwerther, general manager, Kartoon Channel! “Clearly, Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, starring Arnold is resonating with our audience, and we only expect our viewership to continue to grow as we premiere a new episode today and each coming Friday. Arnold’s continued promotion across his massive fan base has proven powerful.”
According to Ollwerther, Genius Brands’ marketing strategy for the series includes TV, digital, print, and influencer activations.
The Kartoon Channel! is available as a streaming app on Apple and Android devices along with Amazon Prime Video and smart TVs and other devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire, and more. Content is also available on YouTube.
