Derrick and Debbie – Nursery Rhymes For Children is a channel on YouTube, which offers fun and educational content for the youngest YouTube users. This project became part of the children’s segment of the English-speaking YouTube in 2014. That time was characterized by the fact that this segment of the YouTube was very actively developing. This means that ordinary children from different parts of the world became real Internet stars. However, on YouTube there were also large media holdings to create content for children. It is also worth noting that YouTube began to be filled with clones of popular channels friendly to children. An online project called “Derrick and Debbie” chose a completely different path of development. The channel’s authors are talented animators, voice artists and screenwriters. Together creative children create educational content for the smallest YouTube users. They do not exploit the images of popular cartoon characters, do not use annoying formats for content, and also do not broadcast harmful things like a cult of consumerism or bad manners. But the channel has its own heroes, which are smart dragons named Derrick and Debbie. Thanks to this, the channel achieved certain successes and a grateful audience! Let’s take a look at the figures: for several years the channel has received more than 115 thousand subscribers, and some video products have more than 10 million views!
What about the content of the channel? The first thematic block contains phonetic songs that teach such fundamental concepts as letters and sounds. The second thematic block contains teaching music compositions that teach such fundamental things as a variety of colors. The roles of teachers are performed by smart dragons who explain the difference between colors using as an example toys and sweets.
