Baby Shark swims into MENA with Spacetoon Group

Spacetoon Group has secured a partnership with Pinkfong, the children’s educational arm of SmartStudy to bring Baby Shark to MENA.

Pinkfong is the outfit behind the wildly popular Baby Shark song that has to date received more than two billion views on YouTube.

Originating in South Korea, the song was originally made for kids, but its infectious tun has made it a hit across the globe. Spacetoon is now bringing the phenomenon to MENA with new songs from Pinkfong ready to drop, too.

Fayez Weiss Al-Sabbagh, the President of Spacetoon Group, said: “We’re very proud of partnering with SmartStudy. We can’t wait to see how our team will expand the popularity of the already successful Baby Shark song, but this time in Arabic language".

Baby Shark song will be localised into Arabic by Spacetoon Kids TV in cooperation with Pinkfong. 

A contract has been signed as well, and as a result ALC was announced to be the master license holder of all the categories of Pinkfong and Baby Shark. 

‘ALC team has got great plans in store for the audience in order to get the best out of this license,’ read a statement from the firm.

The exclusive rights for the ticketed and non-ticketed activation of Baby Shark and Pinkfong are given to Spacetoon Event. The preparations for upcoming live shows, workshops, and other entertaining events that hold the theme of Baby Shark have already started.

During more than 18 years, Spacetoon Group has gathered many brands that have loyal generations of Arab fans all around the world.

The best thing to do is to follow the advice of Baby Shark song “Let’s go hunt”, and hunt the opportunity of joining the huge success that will be soon achieved through Pinkfong’s Baby Shark.
