Beat Bugs is an animated series aimed at 5-7 year olds, revolving around the lives and adventures of five charming and funny child-like bugs who live in an overgrown American-style backyard.
What sets Beat Bugs apart is that each episode uses the narrative inherent in a Beatles song, recorded by a contemporary artist and sung by our characters, as a key dramatic feature of the story.
Beat Bugs incorporates songs from the Lennon/McCartney ‘Northern Songs’ catalogue, to tell uplifting and life-affirming stories filled with hope and melody. World-leading artists, animators and writers have come together to work on this extraordinary show. The Beat Bugs are charming, funny, adventurous, and have a knack for getting themselves into mischief and mayhem. Each of the five friends (Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz, and Walter) has a distinctive personality, and they display the charm and energy of five knockabout, lovable kids. They are best friends who band together to explore and learn in an overgrown suburban backyard, which to them is their entire universe.
