Cookie Jar Launches Jaroo.com Video Site

Cookie Jar Entertainment has launched an online video site for kids called Jaroo.com.

The site offers free, full-length episodes of popular children’s shows and movies. It’s kicked off with more than 50 classic and new series featuring more than 500 episodes available for viewing.

The site includes such programs as Inspector Gadget, Johnny Test, Super Mario Bros., Zelda, The Adventures of Paddington Bear and Madeline. It also features the U.S. premiere of Mona the Vampire.

The site plans to add new episodes and shows daily, with more than 2,000 episodes to be offered over the site’s first three months of operation.

‘What makes Jaroo.com truly special is the breadth of popular kids shows available in a single one-stop location,’ said Kenneth Locker, senior VP of digital media for Cookie Jar Entertainment. ‘Jaroo.com not only offers the largest variety of kids programming, but the site was specially designed to be easily navigated and hosted in a kid-safe, kid-friendly environment. It’s for kids and fans alike.’
