When it comes to family entertainment, Hulu isn't monkeying around.
According to Variety, the streaming service has just secured a deal with NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution, making all nine seasons of Curious George — that's over 100 episodes — available exclusively on Hulu.
This move heightens the battle for more kid-friendly content on digital platforms, as everyone's favorite mischievous monkey will no longer be available on Amazon or Netflix.
Craig Erwich, senior VP and head of content for Hulu, had this to say about the deal:
“Curious George is one of the most beloved characters in kids’ programming and we are delighted to bring the TV series to Hulu. As we continue to add the best of premium television to our service, this partnership represents both an expansion and a commitment to our kids and family offering.”
Curious George will be exclusively available on Hulu (and leaving Netflix and Amazon) on March 31.
