Cartoon Network’s Stop Bullying: Speak Up
To promote original special “Speak Up,” part of its Stop Bullying: Speak Up initiative, Cartoon heavily promoted the series online, on-air and through strategic partners. Bullying prevention PSAs featuring network talent aired on Turner channels. Online, Cartoon received pro bono support from YouTube, Facebook and digital partners, including addictinggames.com. It updated its StopBullyingSpeakUp.com site with educator and parent sections and held a special screening in joint partnership with the Dept of Health and Human Services that more than 400 students attended. It also made the special available for free on iTunes, Xbox, Comcast VOD and its Website (no authentication required). The special was watched by more than 1.5mln total viewers when it aired on Cartoon March 18. An additional 125K watched the special online at StopBullyingSpeakUp.com. There were many VOD plays and multi-million impressions via press coverage.
