Binge-watching isn’t just for adults anymore: Hulu and Disney have struck a deal for the streaming site to be the exclusive subscription video-on-demand home to series from the Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD, becoming the largest kids’ programming acquisition made between the companies so far.

The deal, which Hulu announced Thursday, will allow the site to add more than 500 episodes from seven of the Disney-ABC Television Group’s current and former hit shows — including K.C. Undercover, Dog with a Blog, Gravity Falls, and Austin & Ally — along with 20 original movies from the Mouse House’s slate and previous seasons of Disney Junior’s programming.

“As our biggest content licensing agreement with the Disney brand, this deal further demonstrates our commitment to offering popular, high-quality kids programming on Hulu,” Hulu’s SVP and head of content Craig Erwich said in a press release. “These new SVOD exclusive Disney titles mark yet another way Hulu is building an irresistible content destination for families.”

Disney Junior titles will begin streaming later this month. Launch dates for the rest of the Disney programming have not been announced.
