Genius Brands International is launching the Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! subscription streaming service on Amazon Channels later this week.

As of September 28, Amazon Prime subs will be able to add Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! to their membership for a monthly fee after a seven-day free trial. The network offers such “content with a purpose” as Warren Buffet’s Secret Millionaires Club, Baby Genius, Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab, SpacePOP, Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, Martha & Friends and Gisele & The Green Team. Titles will become available through the Amazon Video app for TVs and mobile devices and will also be downloadable for offline viewing.

Warren Buffet commented: “I am thrilled Secret Millionaires Club is available on Amazon Channels, allowing kids, along with their parents, to learn valuable lessons about finance and business to inspire them to be the best they can be.”

“Amazon’s commitment to quality family programming that both entertains and educates is perfectly aligned with Genius Brands’ mission to provide enriching ‘content with a purpose,’ as demonstrated by such original content offerings as Baby Genius, Warren Buffet’s Secret Millionaires Club and Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab, as well as distinctive series our experts have selected from other similarly committed program creators around the world,” said Andy Heyward, Genius Brands’ chairman and CEO. “We are thrilled to offer a diverse selection of Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! content on Amazon Channels and look forward to building a long and mutually rewarding relationship as we provide enriched content for toddlers through tweens to watch with their parents, which is not available on other family program services.”

Margaret Loesch, the executive chairman of the Kid Genius Cartoon Channel, and Debra Pierson, the senior VP of global content distribution and marketing and president of Kid Genius Cartoon Channel, noted: “Amazon Channels provides a stellar, commercial-free platform for the specifically curated Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! content that provides positive role models within a safe, friendly and happy environment, which stimulates children’s natural curiosity, encourages learning and exploration. Parents, grandparents and caregivers can rest assured that Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! programming is the smart choice, as it entertains as well as enriches the lives of their children.”

“We are excited to announce this new deal with Genius Brands International, which will make Kid Genius Cartoons Plus! the exclusive home for award-winning series that have won the hearts of our customers and their kids,” added Brad Beale, the VP of worldwide television acquisition for Amazon. “From our award-winning Amazon original series to amazing licensed content developed under the auspices of the legendary family-entertainment veteran Margaret Loesch, we’re committed to making Prime Video the best destination for kids’ and family programming that will both educate and entertain.”
