Genius Brands International is bringing a slate of original animated gaming videos from Tankee to its streaming network.
The Tankee Originals will join Kid Genius Cartoon Channel and Baby Genius TV – the two main channels on the Genius Brands Network – from this July.
Gerald Youngblood, co-founder and CEO of Tankee, says: “We created Tankee, the free entertainment app for kids six to 12, to give kids the videos they love from their favorite games like Minecraft, while helping parents protect their kids from inappropriate content. We share in Genius Brands’ mission to give kids entertaining and age-appropriate shows in a safe environment and couldn’t be more thrilled to see Tankee’s original programming on the award-winning platform.”
Tankee Originals including Minecraft Journey to the End, Octodad Dadliest Catch, PixARK Adventure, and Fairy Horse Quest, will be available on the Kid Genius Cartoon Channel, delivering a total of 75 episodes.
Additionally, Tankee will launch content from Genius Brands’ Kid Genius Cartoon Channel across its free entertainment app, including the award-winning 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 & CEO Andy Heyward. “We are thrilled to bring Tankee’s dynamic productions based on wildly popular video games to our streaming service.”
