President George Washington once called children the “future guardians of liberties of this country.”
As our future guardians, it’s imperative that we make sure our children are receiving the best education possible. At a time when so many kids are stuck at home trying to learn online, and some groups are even calling to erase or rewrite American history, we at the ACLJ decided it was time for us to do something to help.
That’s why we came up with this exciting new project that will offer fun, educational video content that you can share with your children and grandchildren. It’s a brand new channel from your friends at the ACLJ.
We call it Bald Beagle.
Bald Beagle will be a place for kids to find engaging, educational entertainment that illustrates the great – and sometimes complicated – history and principles of these United States we are blessed to call home. From the Founding Fathers, to how government actually works, to what they, even as kids, can do to protect and preserve our constitutional republic.
Why Bald Beagle? We were building a channel devoted to teaching kids about American history in a fun way, so we needed something that evoked patriotism. Obviously the bald eagle is the symbol of our magnificent nation. But to keep kids involved, the emphasis still has to be on fun. What’s more fun than a playful pup? The beagle is described by the American Kennel Club as “curious, clever, and energetic.” Just like kids. And, quite frankly, just like us. Also, my dad, ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, had his trusty beagle, Bagel, by his side as he studied during law school. As a result, Bald Beagle was born. Or, hatched.
Bald Beagle is the creation of the ACLJ creative team, made up of dynamic writers, performers, and creators – some of which have worked with children’s entertainment leaders like Disney and Nickelodeon.
But with Bald Beagle, moms, dads, and grandparents can rest assured that their kids are being taught fundamental truths – not being exposed to some extreme, subversive agenda – through high-quality content that can compete with the best children’s entertainment that television, streaming services, or the Internet have to offer.
America’s stories will be presented in fun, exciting video format featuring exciting music, humor, and vibrant new characters. We’re committed to making kids smile, sing, and laugh while also teaching them about our country’s important and often inspiring history. Bald Beagle will also present lessons of faith and the moral principles that our nation was founded on -- principles so many of us still share today.
Bald Beagle’s initial launch will be on YouTube. We believe our content needs to be available to kids where they are, and if your kids are anything like mine – that’s YouTube. The number of kids watching YouTube is staggering, and it’s only going up. Subscribe to our YouTube channel right now so you’ll be the first to know when new content is available.
Our goal at Bald Beagle is to produce high-quality educational content – from a source you know and trust: the ACLJ creative team. We believe it can be used as a supplement to what your kids’ schools are offering them, especially right now as so many are learning online due to the Coronavirus pandemic. And we are committed to creating high-quality content that will compete with the top players of cable TV, streaming services, and other YouTube content that are all vying for your kids’ attention.
To be competitive on that field and fill a gaping hole in children’s entertainment, we need to be constantly creating and releasing exciting, quality new content on the Bald Beagle channel. Simply put, that kind of production schedule requires resources.
As an ACLJ member, you have the unique opportunity to be a part of this revolutionary endeavor. If you believe in this mission and want your kids and grandkids to benefit from an educational entertainment platform that honors your core values, help us launch Bald Beagle.

As we gather with family, or celebrate at a distance due to the ongoing pandemic, to take part in Thanksgiving, let us take a moment to reflect on this American holiday. Most people think of Pilgrims and Native Americans having a feast to celebrate the former’s first corn harvest. But it wasn’t...
