Moonbug was only founded in 2018, and already it claims to be “amongst the largest digital kids’ intellectual property owners in the world.” It’s just got a little bit larger, thanks to its acquisition of the South Korean animated series Arpo.
The Youtube show follows the exploits of Arpo, a commando robot-turned-nanny, and Baby Daniel, the curious boy he cares for. It has two million subscribers and gets 100 million monthly views.
Capitalizing on its huge following, Moonbug is producing 26 episodes, each three-and-a-half minutes long, for the likes of Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and of course Youtube. Twelve episodes have already launched, with the rest to follow throughout the year.
