Beat Bugs

It’s not often I dedicate a blog post to one show, however, this is one that is worth getting excited about. No, it isn’t Making a Murderer, (which will be back – Yes!!) or Stranger Things which is frightfully good; no, this is Beat Bugs!


This Wednesday, the 3rd of August, Beat Bugs, inspired by the music of The Beatles,  will be available on Netflix.

Meet the Beat Bugs: Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz and Walter, all with 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.    Beat Bugs incorporates songs from the Lennon/McCartney ‘Northern Songs’ catalogue sung by some of the most popular musicians from today.

I think this is just marvellous, a whole cartoon series inspired by the Beatles. I cannot wait to sit down with the children and watch this and we will binge watch!!

To coincide with Beat Bugs launch, Republic Records will release the official soundtrack for Season 1 of Beat Bugs exclusively with Apple Music.  Split into two volumes, Season 1 will include a total of 27 tracks with the music from the series and special guest artists like P!nk, James Corden, Aloe Blacc, Sia and Eddie Vedder.

Check out some of the Beat Bugs songs & the lovely animation; highly impressive I think you’ll agree.
