Felices Fiestas de Parte de Semillitas

MIAMI, Florida, - November 26, 2016- Semillitas, the 24 hour animation/entertainment channel for children between 0 and 5 years old, owned by SOMOSTV, celebrates Thanksgiving by programming content especially selected for this festivity in the month of November, so cherished by families in the United States, regardless of nationality or ethnicity. This special programming will be accompanied by special efforts in YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, in line with the environment of the multiplatform entertainment industry today. Thanksgiving is a time when children and parents can get together with friends and family to give thanks for the blessings in their life.

Semillitas will be celebrating the season with original Thanksgiving themed interstitials exclusively produced in-house, as well as adaptations of the on-air look with different versions of the character that identifies the channel disguised in theme.

To engage the Semillitas audience, the YouTube page will be encouraging parents to allow their children to log in and enjoy lots of Thanksgiving fun. The page is full of different themed games such as “Memory”, “Puzzles”, and “Find the Difference in the picture”. In addition to games and the popular episodes, children can also enjoy arts and crafts projects which can be displayed at the Thanksgiving table, amongst friends and family. Parents will be pleased to know that their children can learn the history behind the first Thanksgiving with an episode on YouTube. It explains the story of how the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, had to survive a trying winter and were welcomed by the native Americas who taught them to Harvest the following spring.

Aside from YouTube, the Facebook and Twitter initiative will run parallel. Each platform will alternate between the videos from YouTube and Thanksgiving themed pictures, along with a Holiday themed cover photo and a Semillitas Native American profile picture.
