MVP Kids Launches YouTube Channel


MVP Kids has launched MVP Kids TV on YouTube to debut original stories incorporating characters from its catalog.

Led by John Semper (Green Lantern: Beware My Power, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Smurfs, Scooby-Doo, The Jetsons, My Little Pony, Duck Tales, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Clifford the Red Dog) as group president, MVP Kids TV’s team also includes designer/producer Jim Castle and creator Jim Jinkins (Doug, 101 Dalmatians).

“Our team has a proven track record in mainstream kids’ entertainment,” said Mel Sauder, president and founder of MVP Kids. “Mr. Semper is one of the most sought-after kids’ storytellers and world builders in the industry. His experience and credits speak for themselves, recently writing for DC Comics and personally working with industry giants Jim Henson, Marvel’s Stan Lee and Star Wars’ John Lucas over his illustrative career. Mr. Castle has worked on nearly 500 series, shows and theatrical releases, and his five national Emmy Awards demonstrate the world-class production and design skill he adds. We are honored to have veterans with years of success in children’s entertainment.”

The pilot episode of Howland & Whyland is now available on the MVP Kids TV channel.

Semper said, “There is always room in the marketplace for a product that is genuinely good. I think Howland & Whyland is probably one of the best things to be created for children’s television in a long time because it deals with conflict resolution and handles topics that must be handled responsibly.”
