This show just dethroned CoComelon as Netflix's biggest kids show

Have you switched it on yet?

Unless you're raising kids in a cave, if you're a parent, you probably know how massively popular CoComelon is.

The animation that kick-started as a YouTube channel has become a household name globally, with a solidified slot on the Netflix top 10, a range of toys, and even an upcoming live production.

Yep, CoComelon has a fairly strong grip on little ones and their parents hoping to keep them entertained for just long enough to get a basic task done.

Though some critics have branded the show as addictive and "hyper-stimulating" for kids, it topped the list of most-watched Netflix shows in 2020 and has been a mainstay in the top 10 children's chart in several countries.

A new show has dethroned it from its No. 1 spot on that chart on Netflix US, though.

Maya and the Three, a new animated series by the Mexican filmmaker who directed The Book of Life, is now topping the chart over there.

Starring Zoe Sandala, the show follows a Mesoamerican princess and her three protectors as they battle a range of gods of the underworld from Mayan mythology.

Despite being released just last week, its 9-episode first season has climbed to No. 1 on the list of kids titles and No. 7 on the television chart on Netflix US.

As of today in the Irish charts, CoComelon is still ahead of the new show as Maya and the Three is currently at No. 5. Still, not bad for a show that premiered last week.

CoComelon is in second place to Paw Patrol for now.
