Channel Frederator Network continues to establish itself as a go-to global animation destination online by bringing on board 185 new channels. New signees like Domics, Lee Hardcastle and Cyber Toons bring the network’s total up to 1,222, and expand its subscriber base to 14 million. The web-based network created by animation luminary Fred Seibert as a “Declaration of Cartoon Independence” is proving that demand for fresh, original animated content is strong worldwide.
The new channel selections join enormously popular flagship Cartoon Hangover, home to Penn Ward’s Bravest Warriors and the recently launched Bee & Puppycat from Natasha Allegri, which kicked off Nov. 6 and has accrued close to four million views for its first three episodes. Other key channels include The Animation Workshop, Filmcow (Charlie the Unicorn) and Simon’s Cat.
