Netflix’s Beat Bugs is a kids’ show built around the music of The Beatles

Netflix’s Beat Bugs is the newest addition to the streaming service’s growing library of kid-friendly content, and it revolves around the music of The Beatles. The brainchild of Australian filmmaker Josh Wakely, the show will follow the adventures of “charming, funny, [and] adventurous” insects who explore a suburban backyard. Each 11-minute episode incorporates one of The Beatles’ songs in some way, and the show will feature covers by Eddie Vedder (“Magical Mystery Tour”), Sia (“Blackbird”), P!nk (“Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”), and others. – Jamieson Cox, The Verge
