Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, Genius Brands International’s flagship series executive produced by and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is set to air on Alibaba Group’s Youku streaming platform.

The animated series is slated to launch on Youku in March. Additionally, the show will be available via the Tudou and Kumiao apps.

Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten premiered last April on Genius Brands’ Kartoon Channel! in the U.S. and Canada and has since garnered more than 75 million views.

“I have always loved bringing my latest projects to my Chinese fans because they’re some of the most passionate fans in the world, so I can’t wait for them to see Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten,” said Schwarzenegger.

Andy Heyward, chairman and CEO of Genius Brands, added, “Alibaba’s Youku is one of the most far-reaching media platforms for kids in the world, and we are excited to make Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten available to millions of kids across China. This unique action-packed series delivers all the elements that resonate with kids today, along with positive messaging and Arnold’s star power.”

Aaron Liao, general manager of Youku Kids, said, “Genius Brands has done a tremendous job of creating a truly unique series that kids and their families can enjoy together. With Arnold Schwarzenegger driving Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten and the creative storylines and compelling characters, we have no doubt that we will be able to create an impressive fan base in China, building on the success of the series in the U.S. and Canada.”
