Oggy & the Cockroaches’ official channel just received its Golden Button from the team at YouTube for garnering over 1,300,000 subscribers. In addition, Oggy’s channel has reaped over 1,000,000,000 billion views in just three years, following its inception in October 2014.

Xilam’s Zig & Sharko show is also gaining momentum on YouTube with almost 730,000 subscribers on board, followed by Daltons, A Kind of Magic and Space Goofs.

Marc du Pontavice, founder and ceo at Xilam Animation, said: “As mobile consumption of kids content favours on-demand viewing, we’re thrilled that Xilam’s shows are able to offer a stronger opportunity for family co-viewing and we are proud to be a partner of YouTube Kids App since the beginning.”

Gregory Dray, director, head of kids/family entertainment and learning, EMEA, YouTube at Google, added: “We are impressed with the way Xilam embraced YouTube and YouTube Kids to reach and entertain families all over the world.
