Netflix will soon have another YouTube IP for YouTube Kids. Cry Babies Magic Tears is due to be available on April 18, 2022.
It is a YouTube show (which previously aired at Nickelodeon), as well as a mobile app and toy franchise.
Cry Babies Magic Tears, an animated series that teaches children ages 3-6 about the value of emotion and friendship, is available on YouTube. Baby friends are shown in matching animal pajamas and their pet pets. Each episode is a stand-alone story that focuses on their adventures as they learn how strong their emotions are.
IMC Toys released the following statement:
“We are so proud and excited that from 18th April our Cry Babies Magic Tears series will be available on Netflix in 24 languages and in more than 190 countries. A great recognition after years of hard work and dedication.”
At this time, it’s unclear how many seasons of the show will launch onto Netflix. We found that it might be three seasons, which is currently available only on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video.
The channel has 703K subscribers, and more than 732,000,000 views.
It’s one of a number of YouTube channels that have made the jump over to Netflix and in one instance, has found huge success. We’re referring to CoComelon which to this day continues to dominate Netflix top 10s around the world.
The show spent 572 days on the top 10 TVs in America since its June 2020 debut with the first episode. That means that CoComelon has been present in the US top 10s for 84% of the time it’s been on Netflix. Since then, we’ve seen new episodes drop roughly every six months.
Netflix's April was a busy month when it comes to kids content. From Netflix themselves, we’ll see the release of The Creature Cases (April 12th), a new show from the creator of The Octonauts, the interactive series Battle Kitty and the new series adaptation of Stan Sakai’s comic book Usagi Yojimbo called Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles.
From licensed partners, we’ve seen the release of new seasons of CoComelon, Polly Pocket, Abby Hatcher, and Beyblade.
