Snoop Dogg loves the kids. The legendary rapper, who seems to have his hands in everything these days, is further diversifying his entertainment portfolio with a new venture — an educational children's television show called Doggyland which will air on YouTube and YouTube Kids.
The show, which is aimed at toddlers to eight-year-olds, is "centered on a group of puppies led by an adult mentor named Bow Wizzle," which is voiced by Snoop, and aims to "help promote diversity and inclusion" with the various shapes and colors of the characters.
"As a father, grandfather and longtime youth football coach, it's always been important to me to build positive and educational environments for all children," Snoop said, per CNN. "We wanted to bring our show to YouTube and YouTube Kids which provides free access to everyone, so all the kids can enjoy it. I've always wanted to create a kid-friendly series that lets kids be kids and is truly representative of the culture with everything from the music to the characters. When I started to build my team, it was only right to partner with Claude, who created the iconic series, 'Hip Hop Harry,' which built the blueprint to diverse kids programming, and October London, a talented singer and writer."
There's also a 16-track album, Doggyland - Kids Songs & Nursery Rhymes available to stream. New episodes will drop every week on Tuesdays.
