Children's Show Reaches Landmark One Billion Views on YouTube
News of the milestone came the same week Sockeye Media won two Midsouth EMMY®Awards after being nominated in five categories. Mother Goose Club’s episode “The Bunny Hop” won in the Best Interstitials category, and series director John Hussey was named Best Director/Short Form for his work on the show. Executive Producer Harry Jho said, “In a few short years, we’ve become a leader in the online education and entertainment of children. Our successes with the EMMY® Awards and with YouTube are great encouragement to keep creating content for early learners around the world.”
The team at Sockeye Media LLC is innovative in their approach to children’s media, broadcasting short videos on local PBS stations while releasing new videos every week on their two YouTube channels. Videos garner over 16 million views per week, the majority from outside the United States, making Mother Goose Club and Mother Goose Club Playhouse two of YouTube’s most successful channels. For their international fans, Sockeye Media LLC plans to release multi-lingual captions in Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese in the coming months.
