With a mind boggling 3,424,087,722 views of its hit Episode: ‘Recipe for Disaster’ as of 5 February 2019, the Masha and The Bear animated series is celebrating recognition from Guinness World Records.

First launched in January 2009 on TV, Masha and The Bear today is a worldwide hit 3D animated family show that features Masha, a mischievous little girl that loves exploring the world around her, and the Bear, her kind and caring friend.

Masha and The Bear hits its 10th anniversary milestone in 2019 with a worldwide YouTube fan base. Created by Oleg Kuzovkov and distributed by Animaccord, the single Masha and the Bear episode, Recipe for Disaster is the only animated video included in the list of Top 10 most watched YouTube videos of all time that first set a new Guinness World Records title for the Most watched cartoon/animated movie on YouTube.

Masha and the Bear is no stranger to international acclaim, with the series having 44 billion views globally across YouTube. It was also the first pre-school animated series to be aired in the International Space Station in the summer of 2017 and has been included in a list of TV Shows Destined to be Classics, compiled by the animation industry.
