Animated preschool hit WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! continues to wow children around the globe, setting new viewership benchmarks on Nick Jr. domestically, garnering high ratings in multiple markets and picking up distribution in additional key global territories.
The Emmy Award-winning WUBBZY is now being shown on HOP! TV in Israel and Al Jazeera Children's Channel in the Middle East, both of which recently launched. WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! was also an instant hit on Super RTL in Germany when it debuted in late September.
Meanwhile, the show is enjoying growing success on Nick Jr. and NOGGIN in the U.S., where viewership of the second season is up more than 50 percent versus the first season, prompting Nickelodeon to now strip the show at 1 p.m. weekdays on Nick Jr.
And the residents of Wuzzleburg continue to draw large numbers for Discovery Kids Latin America, TPS Jeunesse's Piwi Channel in France and both Nick and ABC in Australia. Discovery Kids Latin America, Nick UK, Nick Australia and ABC Australia have all picked up the show for its second season as well. In all, WOW! WOW! WUBBZY! airs in more than 60 countries worldwide, with more coming soon.
WOW! WOW! WUBBZY!, which is produced by Bolder Media, Inc., in association with Starz Animation's Film Roman, performs equally well on platforms in addition to TV. For the past two years WUBBZY has had the No. 1 game on nickjr.com. It currently attracts 300,000 game plays a day, contributing to a total of more than 220 million, and counting.
Anchor Bay Ent. will release more WUBBZY collections, including A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS on Feb. 3, PIRATE TREASURE on March 24 and WUBBZY'S BIG MOVIE on May 12, with a fourth release due later in the year.
