Beat Bugs is a new, original Netflix series from creator, writer and director Josh Wakely, brought to life through 3-D animation and the music of the Beatles. “It’s the greatest music catalogue of all time, and I knew they had messages of hope, love, community and peace,” Wakely says. “I thought ‘All You Need is Love’ is a great message to bring to children.” 

Beat Bugs features original characters living in an overgrown backyard, learning lessons and going on adventures, with a Beatles song tied to the theme of each episode. You can watch season 1 of Beat Bugs on Netflix now and season 2 comes out Nov. 18. Read more about Beat Bugs, and check out some fun products below.
