According to the New York Post, Snoop created the channel with producer Claude Brooks and singer/songwriter October London. The videos are educational, teaching everything from letters and numbers to the importance of accepting others.
“Doggyland, to me, would be a 3D animated cartoon series designed for kids,” Snoop says in a video about the project. “I’d say preschoolers, toddlers, and eventually kids of all ages because it’s so influential, it’s so educational and so fundamentally smart the way we put it together with song, dance, and education.”
Snoop voices a character called Bow Wizzle, who acts as a mentor to the younger dog characters. The rapper called the character “a great version of Snoop Dogg.” London voices a character named Wags. Other characters include Yap, Chow Wow, and Barks-A-Locks.
The channel already has several videos uploaded, with titles like “Everybody’s Different” and “Sharing Is Caring.” Other videos feature the songs “Wheels on the Bus” and “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” New videos will release every Tuesday.
