Moonbug Announces First-Ever Spinoff Channel, It’s Cody Time
Moonbug Entertainment has announced it is launching It’s Cody Time, CoComelon’s first-ever spinoff channel featuring Cody Green and his loving family. The musical
pre-school series debuts on YouTube with two special episodes, “Cody’s Spy Song” and “I’m going to be a Big Brother”, followed by a new episode each Wednesday, bringing positive and fun content to children around the world.
Since his debut on CoComelon back in 2019, Cody has grown from being JJ’s classmate, to next-door neighbour, to best friend, and now he’s ready for his own channel. Similar to CoComelon’s common themes of childhood fun and celebrating big moments for little kids, It’s Cody Time will include nursery rhymes as well as original songs. The initial story arc will focus on pregnancy, becoming a big brother and the joys of family, and will aim to help children learn through relatable situations and to prepare them for big-sibling responsibilities and expectations.
“Cody’s been a fan favorite to our global audience for years. We’re excited to launch It’s Cody Time and give fans a chance to get to know Cody and his family a bit better,” said Patrick Reese, General Manager, CoComelon at Moonbug Entertainment. “Representation matters and we want to bring more content with diverse lead characters, inclusive storytelling and aspirational role modelling to children around the world.”
More on the It’s Cody Time’s initial two episodes:
- Cody’s Spy Song: Cody becomes curious when he notices some changes in his house, so he plays detective and sets out to solve the mystery! Little does he know, he’s in for a big surprise.
- I’m going to be a Big Brother: After the news of his baby sister is revealed, Cody is unsure what to actually expect, so Toni and Kwame teach him all the great and fun new things that he’ll get to do as a big brother! In the meantime, Cody wants to try them all out on “proxy” baby sister Pickles.
Cody’s parents feature prominently in the show and play an important part in plot themes. The family, also known as ‘The Greens’, come from diverse backgrounds. Cody’s father, Kwame, is a chef and comes from Jamaican and Ghanian descent. His mom, Toni, is African American and works full-time as a paediatrician.
