Vme Brings Worlds Most Beloved Characters to Hispanic Kids

Thomas & Friends™, Angelina Ballerina™, Barney™, and Bob the Builder™ Premiere on Vme’s Extensive Kids Line-up in June 2011

Four of the world’s most beloved kids programs will arrive for the first time on Spanish television. Beginning this week, national Spanish network Vme will be the exclusive Spanish-language home for Thomas y Sus Amigos (Thomas & Friends™), Bob El Constructor (Bob the Builder™), Barney y sus amigos (Barney & Friends™) and Angelina Ballerina™ and all from HIT Entertainment. With the addition of these shows to its extraordinary line-up that includes Plaza Sesamo, LazyTown and many others, Vme now airs the six most popular children’s franchises in the world.

The four new series will air during Vme’s daily preschool block, Vme Niños, and on its 24/7 cable channel Vme Kids. Vme is the only Hispanic network that dedicates more than four hours a day, six days a week to preschool programming.

“The appeal of these global characters within the Latino community is huge. Each of these programs captures the hearts and minds of kids and inspires the next generation through the characters they already know and love,” said Carmen DiRienzo. “As the undisputed leader of Spanish content for kids, Vme offers the programs that consistently earn the love of kids and the trust of parents. The addition of these four shows only underscores our ongoing commitment to deliver empowering and inspiring content for all members of the Latino family – even the youngest.”
With Thomas y Sus Amigos — Mon, Wed, Fri at 9:00am there is a rich world to discover and explore. Through the adventures of Thomas and his friends, children learn important life lessons about the value of friendship, fair play, team work and what it means to be a Really Useful Engine. Thomas y Sus Amigos inspires children to believe that little engineers – like little engines – can do big things.

Bob El Constructor — Saturdays 7:00am and his machine team are ready to tackle any project. As they hammer out the solutions that lead to a job well done, Bob and the Can-Do Crew demonstrate the power of positive-thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and follow-through. Most importantly, from start to finish, the team always shows that The Fun Is In Getting It Done!
Barney y sus amigos – Tues. & Thurs. 7:00am — Purple, fun-loving and happy, Barney is not your typical dinosaur. He’s a huggable, lovable 200 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus Rex. Barney, and his DINO-mite friends BJ and Baby Bop, help parents give their children the range of skills they need to grow, and always do it with lots of fun, music and laughs.

Angelina Ballerina – Mon, Wed, Fri at 7:00am and Tues & Thurs 9:00am  — a beloved publishing property for close to three decades, is a little star with big dreams of becoming a prima ballerina. This feisty little mouse works hard to reach her goals and along the way, and always learns from her mistakes. When little kids share in Angelina’s experiences, they’re inspired to go after their big dreams too.
