SEOUL -- "Bebefinn," a three-dimensional animated series featuring the five-member family of a 20-month-old baby named "Finn," has garnered popularity mainly in English-speaking countries on Netflix. The animation show created by South Korea's educational entertainment company Pinkfong ranked in the top 10 on the over-the-top (OTT) service's daily chart featuring popular children's content in nine countries.
Finn is an animated child who loves to play with Baby Shark. He has four family members -- mother, father, brother and sister. Finn's family showcases various dance movements with catchy songs that are easy to sing along to. The English YouTube channel of Bebefinn has garnered 2.9 million subscribers as of December 2022, nearly eight months after it was released on April 3. The content has about 1.9 million followers on TikTok. Thanks to its fast-growing popularity, the Bebefinn series was released on Netflix in 190 countries with English, Spanish and Korean subtitles.
Pinkfong said the animation content made the Top 10 Kids on Netflix in nine countries including the United States, Britain and Australia, just seven days after its debut on the world's most popular OTT service. The content ranked second in the U.S., New Zealand and South Africa, third in Australia and Ireland, and fourth in Canada. 
Bebefinn's YouTube channel will roll out the second season featuring Finn shaping his own philosophy as he grows up and becomes more mature. Unlike the previous season which portrayed the toddler interacting with other characters mainly at home, the new season will depict Bebefinn outside his house.
The animation show was developed as a follow-up to Baby Shark. Baby Shark depicts a story about a family of great white sharks with colorful visuals and a catchy melody. The original version, uploaded in late 2015, made a phenomenal hit worldwide and has tens of versions in many languages.
