BEAT BUGS Season 1, Vol 1 cover art

The soundtrack for Beat Bugs is now available on Apple Music and it’s fabulous. It’s been lots of fun introducing my daughter to different Beatles songs.

If you haven’t heard of Beat Bugs, get ready to be excited. It’s a truly extraordinary show that kids, parents and grandparents will love. It’s a new animated series on Channel 7TWO in Australia inspired by the music of The Beatles. Here’s my review of Beat Bugs.

Beat Bugs follows the adventures of five cute young bugs, Buzz, Crick, Jay, Kumi and Walter who reside in an overgrown suburban backyard. The series is built around the iconic music of The Beatles and each episode features a different adventure based on a particular Beatles song. Aimed at kids aged five to seven (but will appeal to younger and older) it introduces a new generation of kids to The Beatles.

Songs on the show include hits like Come Together, Penny Lane, Help and Ticket to Ride. There’s also renditions by P!nk, James Corden, Robbie Williams, Sia, The Shins and Eddie Vedder.
