FilmRise CEO Danny Fisher has announced the streaming network is bringing some beloved kids programming to the platform, including everyone’s favorite purple dinosaur in Barney & Friends.

The deal includes non-exclusive licenses to Seasons 10-14 of “Barney and Friends,” the first four seasons of “Angelina Ballerina,” and the first three seasons of “Camp Lakebottom.

“These popular children’s programs fit perfectly into our strategy of increasing our market share within the children’s/family space,” Fisher said. “Audiences have an enduring appetite for these established, recognizable family-friendly TV series for kids, and we are pleased to offer them to new generations of children with no fee to their parents.”

Barney & Friends” is one of the most popular American children’s television series, targeted at young children aged 2–7. It features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic Tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational messages through songs and small dance routines with a friendly, silly and optimistic attitude.

“Angelina Ballerina” is a British animated children’s television series, based on the Angelina Ballerina series of children’s books. The program is about Angelina Mouseling, a fictional young mouse who is training to become a ballerina. Dame Judi Dench performed the voice of Miss Lilly, her ballet teacher.

Camp Lakebottom” follows 12-year old boy named McGee — your typical, yet resourceful easy going, life-is-a-sundae-with-a-cherry-on-top kind of kid; blessed with an uncanny level of self confidence, constantly on the search for fun and completely void of the “planning ahead” gene. When McGee sets out for summer camp, but ends up on the wrong bus, he meets Squirt and Gretchen, and they end up at Camp Lakebottom. This forgotten, weird place has a lot of adventures in store for the 3 friends and their enemy Buttsquat.
