Mother Goose Club is an educational nursery school program that streams on its eponymous YouTube channel and is produced by Sockeye Media LLC. Its YouTube channel has acquired more than 8 billion views and 7 million subscribers since 2009. Episodes of the program have also aired on PBS stations and are available on streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, and Tubi. The show is made up of a series of educational live-action and animated segments, with a cast of six recurring characters who introduce classic nursery rhymes and other songs to children through catchy tunes, play, and interactive lessons.
Each episode of Mother Goose Club contains multiple segments and follows a cast of six recurring characters—Baa Baa Sheep, Eep the Mouse, Little Bo Peep, Jack B. Nimble, Mary Quite Contrary, and Teddy Bear—who sing and dance to a variety of nursery rhymes and original songs. The live-action characters often perform in front of animated backdrops, although some sequences of the show feature fully-animated CGI versions of the cast. Episodes also often feature sketch-like segments that have narrative elements. The program's emphasis on words is designed to help young children learn early language skills, while rhymes and melodies encourage song participation and physical movement. The show also focuses on other early learning concepts such as letters, colors, and shape recognition.
The Mother Goose Club YouTube channel also contains a number of shorter, song-only videos that feature cast members and other performers singing nursery rhymes. Many of these songs appear on Mother Goose Club's Spotify account. Additional content can be found on the Mother Goose Club mobile app in the form of songs, books, games, and videos and on Netflix in the form of a nursery rhyme compilation. Sockeye Media also operates and produces content for associated YouTube channels including Mother Goose Club Playhouse and a Spanish-language version of the channel known as Mother Goose Club en Español. As of 2020, Mother Goose Club content can also be found on Prime Video, Kidoodle.TV, Tubi, and HappyKidsTV (among other platforms).
