New Animated ‘Lassie,’ ‘George of the Jungle’ and ‘Mr. Magoo’ Launching on CBS All Access

Episodes of new original kid’s series from DreamWorks Animation’s Classic Media will begin streaming January 17. 

In a move that further expands their growing animated kid’s library, CBS All Access, CBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, is adding three new original children’s series from DreamWorks Animation’s Classic Media. Beginning Friday, January 17, all-new editions of Lassie, George of the Jungle and Mr. Magoo will begin streaming. The announcement was made by Marc DeBevoise, Chief Digital Officer, ViacomCBS, and President and CEO, CBS Interactive, during CBS All Access’ biannual presentation to the Television Critics Association.

“We’ve seen a tremendous response from our subscribers in just the few months since CBS All Access began offering children’s programming,” DeBevoise commented. “Bringing new editions of legendary classics like Lassie, George of the Jungle and Mr. Magoo to the service is a fantastic benchmark for CBS All Access, and we look forward to continuing to expand our offering for families.”

These three new series join CBS All Access’ existing lineup of exclusive original children’s series, including new seasons of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and the new Danger Mouse, as well the service’s growing library of hit children’s programming, including Bob the Builder, Inspector Gadget, Heathcliff, The Adventures of Paddington Bear, plus recently added Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra, Sam & Cat and Danny Phantom, with additional series to be added. CBS All Access’ library of children’s programming will grow to more than 1,000 episodes as additional series are added over the coming weeks.
