Netflix recently released Beat Bugs, a new Netflix original series for kids inspired by the music of the Beatles. It includes all-star cover artsists like P!nk, Aloe Blacc, Eddie Vedder and Sia. Covers by Rod Stewart, Jennifer Hudson and Tori Kelly will be featured in Season 2 this November.
Each episode features a well-known Beatles song woven into uplifting and fun stories filled with melody, hope and the wonders of friendship. The series is fun and is a great way to introduce the beloved catalogue of Beatles classics to a whole new generation.
This is a kids series that will bring families together. Personally I have never enjoyed sitting down and watching netflix with the girls as much as I have over the past two weeks. Granted, the Beatles are hardly new to my girls. My mom was a Beatlemaniac, and I grew up listening to them and loving them as a result.
My 4 year old has become as obsessed with Beat Bugs as she is with Paw Patrol, and that is saying a lot! I catch her happily singing along to the songs as she watches all the time. It’s adorable watching her discover the Beatles in a new way.
This new series has been put together so well, it is really impressive. Netflix original series just keep getting better and better!
