Genius Brands International Inc. and Tankee Inc. have forged a new content partnership for the Genius Brands Network — including the Kid Genius Cartoon Channel and Baby Genius TV — to launch a new roster of Tankee Originals beginning next month.
Tankee, which provides gaming videos for kids ages 6 to 12, will distribute Minecraft Journey to the End, Octodad Dadliest Catch, PixARK Adventure, and Fairy Horse Quest on the Network, delivering a total of 75 episodes on the Kid Genius Cartoon Channel, which targets kids ages 6 to 11. Additionally, Tankee will launch content from Genius Brands’ Kid Genius Cartoon Channel across its free entertainment app, including Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club and Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab.
“We pride ourselves on being a forward-thinking company, and this new partnership with Tankee offers us the opportunity to engage our audience across all mediums further, broadening our coverage into the gaming space with our content launch on Tankee’s award-winning platform,” says Genius Brands’ Chairman and CEO Andy Heyward.
“The children’s media landscape has evolved so rapidly and dramatically over the past five years. With content platforms becoming increasingly diffused, we identified a vacuum in the market our Kid Genius Channel viewers are clamoring for, and we are thrilled to bring Tankee’s dynamic productions based on wildly popular video games to our streaming service,” he adds.
