Netflix introduced a very cool new kids show this Summer, Beat Bugs! (Netflix giveaway below!!)
The series revolves around five friends — Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter — who band together to explore and learn in an overgrown suburban backyard, which to them is their entire universe.
But what makes it ‘very cool’ is that it features real music stars, performing Beatles songs throughout each episode!
Pink, James Bay, Sia and James Corden, just to name-drop a few of the singing guests on the show, Variety says “Beat Bugs” was “a rare occasion to be presented with a truly one-of-a-kind children’s show that is so perfectly suited to Netflix,” said Andy Yeatman, director of original kids’ content at the streamer. Added Wakely: “Bringing ‘Beat Bugs’ to life on Netflix and having a platform to reimagine this universally acclaimed music for families around the world is an exhilarating and rewarding experience.”
“Personally I’m very grateful to be part of Josh’s vision,” Eddie Vedder said in a statement. “A tremendous show for kids that combines beautiful animation with great stories and obviously some of the best songs ever written.”
