Some parents will do whatever it takes to give their kids their own countdown and get them into bed before the ball actually drops, according to a new study. 

More than a third of U.S. parents will change the clocks, blow the noisemakers at 8 p.m., and search for that New Year's Eve countdown on the other side of the world to fool their kids into thinking it's 12 a.m., says Wakefield Research on behalf of Netflix.

World renowned party animal King Julien, star of DreamWorks Animation's "All Hail King Julien" on Netflix, took matters into his own paws when he heard 36 percent of parents said they would search for a countdown in a different time zone in order to celebrate earlier and 22 percent would go as far as to stage a countdown of their own.

For the first time, King Julien will host his very own kid-sized countdown “special” on Netflix that families can use to ring in 2015 whenever they choose to celebrate. 

It's three minutes of high-energy, music-filled fun that lets kids celebrate the New Year no matter the time of day. 

The countdown will be available in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, the Netherlands and France beginning on Dec. 29th at Netflix.com/KingJulien.

*34% is a combination of parents who have celebrated in the past or who plan to celebrate New Year's Eve early with kids this year.
