Moonbug's "CoComelon" to be broadcasted on French kids channel Gulli

CoComelon’s mission is to inspire positivity and nurture a growth mindset for kids across the globe and will be aired in early November on the free-to-air television channel.




Moonbug Entertainment, a subsidiary of Candle Media, announced an agreement with Gulli, French kids free-to-air television channel, to air episodes of hit show "CoComelon" across the channel starting early November. This marks Moonbug’s first free TV channel deal in France.

“This agreement with Gulli is a significant step for Moonbug Entertainment in France. It provides us with the perfect opportunity to share our much-loved 'CoComelon' with existing and new fans across this key territory. We are extremely excited to work with Gulli and the future opportunities this partnership may bring.” comments Nicolas Eglau, Managing Director EMEA & APAC, Moonbug Entertainment.

As part of the agreement Super RTL and Gulli, who joined forces in 2021 to support and develop licensing programmes on each side of the Rhine, will become the licensing agent for "CoComelon" in France. This builds on the news from 2021, when Moonbug announced Super RTL as its "CoComelon" licensing agency in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

Super RTL and Gulli’s licensing responsibilities will include identifying new licensees, as well as developing the existing portfolio across France and managing retail partnerships. Super RTL and Gulli’s rights will include merchandising and publishing for "CoComelon".

“This agreement with Gulli marks yet another milestone in our strategy for internationalisation. France is an incredibly important territory for us and we are extremely excited to be partnering with Gulli.” comments Francesca Romana Gianesin, Head of Consumer Products EMEA ANZ, Moonbug Entertainment.

“Thanks to Moonbug Entertainment for choosing us. 'CoComelon' is a huge opportunity and we will be promoting it on our fully integrated Gulli Ecosystem including TV, Digital, the Summer Kids Tour and many others.” comments Jean-René Aucouturier, EVP Global Distribution and Business Development, Gulli.
