With more than three billion views on YouTube, and about 1000 repeats in my home and car, Baby Shark is an obvious hit. So much so that it’s being turned into an animated series for Nickelodeon. That’s a lot of doo doo doo doo doo doo doo.
Nickelodeon will team up with Pinkfong to develop the show, to further explore the world of Baby Shark.
The New York Times writes: Baby Shark has captured the imagination of millions of fans around the world, so it’s no surprise it’s one of the top 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube ever,” said Ramsey Naito, executive vice president of Nickelodeon Animation.
“At the heart of any popular piece of content is a terrific character, and we have a great opportunity to further explore the world of Baby Shark and follow this family through some great animated adventures on Nickelodeon.”
Pam Kaufman, the president of Nickelodeon Consumer Products, told CNN that “appetite for more content and products is strong around the world”.
“Our outstanding creative teams are moving fast to get more Baby Shark product across multiple categories to retailers, and our content team is excited to develop a terrific original animated series that will bring this property to new heights and even more fans,” she said.
A release date hasn’t been announced yet.
