Go Jetters – CBeebies Global Hit for Pre-Schoolers Launches Dedicated YouTube Channel
CBeebies’ smash-hit show for pre-schoolers, Go Jetters, has launched its very own YouTube page alongside brand new interactive features on its dedicated website.
Now available across South Africa, the brand new YouTube channel allows pre-schoolers and their carers to subscribe and watch all of their favourite Go Jetters characters whenever and wherever they like, with new videos added weekly.
Linked to an enhanced website, www.gojetters.com , pre-schoolers are encouraged in their learning of geography through a variety of interactive games, activity sheets, apps and video clips, following Xuli, Kyan, Lars, Foz and Ubercorn as they learn about the many fascinating man-made and natural landmarks in our world.
The new digital platform allows parents and children to join the Go Jetters squad in a safe environment and take part in their quests to save world’s most famous landmarks from the mischievous meddlings of their nemesis, Grandmaster Glitch. Interactive games include ‘Starring You’, where they can create their own Go Jetters video by adding photos of themselves; and ‘Global Glitch’ where they collect coins to bring out more Go Jetters and take a souvenir selfie.
BBC Worldwide Africa’s Head of Programming, Kully Kaur-Baines said, “The popularity of the CBeebies channel (DStv channel 306) and Go Jetters in South Africa and across the continent has made this a natural addition, expanding on the show and offering families the opportunity to access it wherever they go. Go Jetters aims to teach little ones about world geography and the natural wonders of the world in an entertaining way, and with the new website and apps available, they can learn even more.”
Go Jetters apps are also available for download on Apple and Android, where little ones can enjoy hours of fun with Go Jetters Colouring and Go Jetters: Fix that Glitch.
Go Jetters is a BBC Worldwide and CBeebies co-commission that follows the adventures of four plucky heroes, Xuli, Kyan, Lars and Foz, as they travel the world with their teacher, mentor and friend, Ubercorn, a funky disco-grooving unicorn. A comedy, action adventure for 4-6 year olds, Go Jetters combines music, cool gadgets and disco-dancing to introduce the audience to geography and culture. Filled with comedy, teamwork, awesome sights, and funky facts, each episode offers older pre-schoolers a fun-filled and action packed exploration of their their wider world.
