Eddie Vedder, the Shins and Sia Contribute to Beatles-Themed Kids Show
Published Feb 10, 2016Want to trick your kids into listening to the Beatles at an early age? Netflix has the perfect new cartoon for that very purpose.
The show is called Beat Bugs, and it follows five tiny friends who live in a suburban backyard (think A Bug's Life). Each episode draws its stories and themes from a different Beatles hit. The show was created by Josh Wakely.
Rather than use the Beatles' studio recordings, the show's soundtrack features contributions from a wide variety of different artists, each with their own take on a different Beatles number. Contributors include Eddie Vedder, Pink, James Bay, Sia, the Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Chris Cornell, Regina Spektor, James Corden and Birdy.
Eddie Vedder, who sings "Magical Mystery Tour" in the below trailer, said, "Personally I'm very grateful to be part of Josh's vision. A tremendous show for kids that combines beautiful animation with great stories and obviously some of the best songs ever written."
Best Bugs will hit Netflix in August.
