Amazon Studios has announced two new addition to their original kids programming – Bug Diaries and Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.
Bug Diaries, based on the best selling children’s book series, is an animated show aimed at preschoolers, and follows the adventures of three best friends, Worm, Spider, and Fly. The show pairs kid personalities with bug abilities, and gives kids an inch high (and a mile high) look at the world around them.
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, is a live action show for children ages 5 to 10 that’s based on their classic Saturday morning series from the 1970s. The show follows two brothers, Johnny and Scotty, who get to know Sigmund, a friendly young sea monster escaping from his old life and his dysfunctional brothers Slurp and Blurp.
Amazon’s Head of Kids Programming, Tara Sorensen, said they were excited to bring both the “beloved series, Bug Diaries, that highlights important life lessons for our young viewers,” and the revival of the classic Sigmund and the Sea Monsters that carries a timeless message of friendship.
The show is produced by Sid and Marty Krofft (who also produced H.R. Pufnstuf and Land of the Lost).
Both shows will be a part of Amazon’s Instant Video subscription, which comes free to all Prime subscribers, and can be watched on any laptop, tablet, PC, or mobile device.
