Moonbug to produce more ARPO content

ARPO has more than two million subscribers on YouTube

LA- and London-based children’s content company Moonbug is producing a new series based on its recently acquired Korean animated property ARPO.

Throughout 2020, Moonbug will produce and launch 26 three-and-a-half-minute episodes of the slapstick animated comedy on OTT platforms in the US, EMEA and APAC. The first 12 episodes have already launched.

This follows Moonbug’s recent acquisition of the rights to the property, which has more than two million subscribers and attracts 100 million views per month on YouTube.

ARPO follows the relationship between a commando robot-turned-nanny and the curious boy he cares for. It aims to help children aged three to six build an understanding of non-verbal communication like body language and facial expressions, and also promotes life skills such as friendship, being considerate of others and cooperation.

“As Moonbug continues to expand globally, ARPO was a programme that immediately caught our eye. It is such a unique, fun show and we recognised how well it resonated with the progressive audience in Korea, as well as others around the world,” said John Robson, chief operating officer at Moonbug.

ARPO is currently available on streaming services including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Kidoodle.TV, Roku and YouTube.
