New York, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2009 -
Dailymotion, one of the world's largest video entertainment sites, today announced the launch of DM Kids. Operating as a standalone, child-safe web site, DM Kids launches with an initial offer of hundreds of premium videos including cartoons, TV shows, music videos and original Web video series. DM Kids is divided into two programmed playlists - one for kids ages 3 - 6 and the other section for kids ages 7-12 - so kids can just sit back and watch videos programmed for their age group.
For the younger crowd, DM Kids offers shows like Peanuts from Warner Bros. and SpongeBob SquarePants, iCarly, Avatar, The Last Airbender, Invader Zim, Naked Brothers Band and more from Nickelodeon. Older kids will find some of their favorite music videos from Universal Music Group as well extreme sports, nature and educational videos and vintage cartoon series from Hulu like Speed Racer and Fat Albert. Other web series include Dragonfruit Studios' Spook House Dave! and Funny Face from FitzRoy Media and Renegade Animation. DM Kids provides kids with a clean, simple and fun interface so that even the youngest viewers can easily find their favorite Web videos and discover new ones.
DM Kids will also be building a library of original Web video entertainment for kids. The first original Web series launching on DM Kids will be Ghost Town, from Sunny Boy Entertainment. Ghost Town is the story of two teenage ghost hunters who track down legendary ghosts.
