Animation, and even grand openings of DC theme park rides and attractions.
“We’re excited to partner with DC Entertainment and Telepictures to bring this all-new YouTube series to kids who love the DC Universe,” said Maryellen Zarakas, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Franchise Management and Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “DC Kids is a major part of our strategy to deliver original short form content for kids. DC Kids represents our latest effort, joining other great original animated shorts for DC Super Hero Girls and Justice League Action.

DC Kids will also be filled with non-stop fun and family-friendly content, including unboxings and demos of the latest DC toys and products, Super Hero-themed DIY crafts, hacks, activities, and even challenges that will let viewers get in on the fun! It will be a non-stop party at DC Kids!
In today’s premiere episode, fans will get a close-up look at The LEGO Batman Movie as Jett and Analei unbox LEGO construction sets inspired by unforgettable moments from the blockbuster film.”Following the success and popularity of DC All Access as the one-stop source for the latest DC Universe news, launching DC Kids is a natural next step to continue to grow our original content line- up, and to give fans, and particularly families, even more access and inside scoop on all things DC,” stated Amit Desai, EVP, Business & Marketing Strategy, Direct to Consumer & Global Franchise Management for DC Entertainment.
