Big Block Singsong is an animated musical short that shows on Disney Junior between shows. My boys love seeing the different characters created as Big Blocks. Their favorite is the monkey! Each time the “Big Blocks” come on, my youngest will shout “Mamma, it’s a big blocks!” Needless to say, we are fans at our house, and we are so excited for season 2! This second season debuted on Disney Junior on May 4th and the new album releases TODAY and the video will release on May 25th! Here is more information:
Toronto, April 30, 2015 – The second season of 20 animated music video episodes from Big Block Singsong begins airing on Disney Junior US and the Disney Channel US on May 4th. To celebrate, new collections of the 49 episodes from Season 1 will also be available for download via iTunes and Google Play, and 25 more songs from Season 1 will be available as a digital album release on May 19th.
Big Block Singsong is created by Goddard/Brown for the CBC in Canada and also airs daily on Disney Junior and weekdays on Disney Channel in the US (as well as Disney Junior Australia, Japan and Spain, Nick Jr. UK and many other networks around the globe). All rights for the series are distributed internationally by Bejuba! Entertainment. Kaboom! Entertainment/Phase 4 Films (now housed under eOne Entertainment) debuted the “Big Block Singsong Volume 1” DVD and Digital Download last fall, and record label Razor & Tie, also released a digital album of “Greatest Hits.” The DVD just won a Kids First! Endorsement.
Fans around the world are responding in droves to this wryly funny animated musical phenomenon. Parents report that their kids “stop in their tracks” whenever Big Block Singsong episodes air on TV and post their themed birthday party images regularly on Facebook. Big Block Singsong YouTube views recently surpassed 22 million views. The Season 1 hit song “Princess” has remained top of the charts on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Kids Place Live since March. Critics are raving too; Zooglobble calls these videos and songs “tons of fun” and “highly recommended.”
Big Block Singsong is the brainchild of Warren Brown (director and visual artist) and Adam Goddard (composer and recording artist). The Toronto-based creators collaborate closely as they create these “bright, in-your-face silly and catchy” (CoolMomPicks) songs and videos.
