The ear worm you wish you never heard is about to get stuck in your head all over again. The now-infamous “Baby Shark” song is going from a YouTube tune to the TV screen, and your kiddo is about to go wild!
Nickelodeon recently announced the addition of a new “Baby Shark” themed show to its already awesome lineup of programming for preschoolers. In a partnership with the company behind Pinkfong (the creators of “Baby Shark”), SmartStudy, Nick has plans to turn the song/video into a full-on animated series.
