“Our young viewers have a voracious appetite for a variety of ‘content with a purpose’ that comes from an eclectic group of sources,” stated Mark Shoeman, the director of distribution at Genius Brands. “WatchMojo has been at the forefront of quality content creation on YouTube since its inception. We’re thrilled to be bringing their brand of entertainment to our audiences and providing their viewers with a sampling of our innovative programming as well.”

“Sharing Genius Brands International’s commitment to engaging content that not only entertains but engages the minds and imaginations of our young viewers, it was inevitable that the two companies forge a programming partnership,” added Thomas Punch, the VP of WatchMojo. “Genius Brands’ animated content and WatchMojo’s live-action programming are uniquely complementary and we’re very excited about this new endeavor.”
