The iconic Little Tikes Cozy Coupe is getting animated for a new series from Moonbug and MGA Entertainment (MGAE).

Let’s Go Cozy Coupe will debut on the new Cozy Coupe YouTube channel beginning in late September. The series turns everyday preschool and playground games into big adventures as Cozy Coupe uses its imagination, freedom to explore, and drive to “play big” to help navigate new experiences. MGAE says that the series is intended to entertain kids while demonstrating important skills, such as teamwork, patience, and critical thinking.

“We are thrilled to launch the iconic Cozy Coupe in the first-ever animated series,” says Anne Parducci, chief content officer, MGAE. “Along with the team at Moonbug, we have created compelling and fun stories that allow us to expand the world of Little Tikes Cozy Coupe like never before. We look forward to entertaining kids around the world.”

Ahead of the new series, Cozy Coupe has appeared in episodes of Little Baby Bum’s Go Buster beginning today.

Over the past year, Moonbug and MGAE have become increasingly linked through a partnership that began with a deal to produce Little Baby Bum toys under the Little Tikes brand. The companies recently expanded their partnership with MGAE signing on as the global licensing agent for the Little Baby Bum brand.

At the Toy Insider’s recent Sweet Suite @ Home event, MGAE introduced new items from its fall lineup, including Sing-Along Lilly and Sing-Along Ami by Little Tikes, Rainbow High Fashion Dolls, and the Tobi Robot Smartwatch. This holiday season will also bring new line extensions for its L.O.L. Surprise! collection. Moonbug recently made headlines with its acquisition of the Blippi and CoComelon brands and a collaboration with Cloudco for new Care Bears content.
