Classic Eighties animated series Dennis the Menace is gearing up to make its debut on Genius Brands International’s new Kid Genius channel.
The series will debut on Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand service in September this year and will be joined by the award-nominated kids’ property, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?
The new Kid Genius channel is set to offer a roster of programming for young viewers, including GBI originals such as Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab, Llama Llama and Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club.
The full schedule for the Kid Genius channel will be revealed ahead of the launch of the platform this September.
GBI’s senior vice president of global distribution sales, Andy Berman believes that both Dennis the Menace and Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego are a perfect fit for the values of the new platform.
“They are both perfectly suited to join the line-up of our new Kid Genius channel, where we will offer a safe viewing experience for children and their families that also provides positive value,” he said.
“In addition to both properties being well-respected global brands, Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? Gives kids the chance to learn about geography and culture, and Dennis the Menace delivers wholesome storytelling for everyone.”
