Marshmello makes Mellodees pre-school YouTube series debut as Lil Mello

One month on from its initial launch to the pre-school stage, Mellodees – a new kids’ YouTube channel featuring weekly videos and upbeat music produced by Marshmello and Moe Shalizi – has offered audiences a special guest appearance from the global DJ superstar Marshmello himself.

The episode, titled Wheels on the Bus, sees Dee receive a surprise visit from Marshmello in miniature form as Lil Mello, who makes his first appearance in the series, driving the bus and seated on a phone book.

Mellodees’ music videos have surpassed three million views on YouTube. The channel includes a fresh remix of classic nursery rhymes including ABC’s Song, Rock-A-Bye Baby, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Twinkle Twinkle, as well as compilations.  With Dee’s imagination, he and his friends go on adventures providing families with music, special dance moves and more.

By Following the Beets, kids can easily read and sing along with the lyrics.

Additionally, Dee and Mellodees will be featured in the first-ever iHeartMedia Saturday Morning Dance Party, a family-friendly music event for children and parents across the US. Families can tune in to the two-week dance series to enjoy songs, new videos and Dee’s signature dance moves, taking place on Saturday, August 22 and August 29, with streaming available on iHeartRadio’s Facebook Page.

Mellodees promises to deliver relevant messages and energetic music for the preschool set and their millennial parents to enjoy. New music and videos release each week on the Mellodees YouTube Channel as well as all streaming platforms.
