Disclosure: I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team, and this post is sponsored by Netflix. However, the opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
The Netflix Stream Team is celebrating the new original series Beat Bugs! The animated show for kids premiered August 3rd on Netflix and is inspired by the music of The Beatles. In Beat Bugs Season 1, top artists including Pink, Sia, Wesley Schultz (of the Lumineers), and Eddie Vedder help introduce the beloved Beatles classics to the new generation.
The feel-good show, intended for young viewers, is about five bugs who learn important life lessons all without ever having to leave their suburban backyard. Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter crick-ta-pult into your heart while the story-line incorporates uplifting songs from the Lennon/McCartney ‘Northern Songs’ catalogue. In fact, the series theme song is a new rendition of one of the Beatles best songs ever recorded —“All You Need is Love.”
Currently, Netflix offers Season 1 containing 9 fun-filled episodes ready to be streamed. Keep watching for Season 2 to be added sometime in November (projected for November 18). The new upcoming episodes will feature covers from rock legend Rod Stewart, Jennifer Hudson and Tori Kelly!

Jamming Out with Beat Bugs
Music is a gigantic part of our life. We listen to music while cooking, showering, traveling, and working out. My family is use to jamming out to oldies from Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Van Morrison, Queen, and the Beatles. It’s just what we do! This is why I like the Beat Bugs! The show’s story-line is for a younger audience, but the older generations can still join in the fun by enjoying the music. It helps bring families together over classics through a cute and friendly platform! If you have little ones at home…give Beat Bugs a chance on family night!
