About BEAT BUGS
BEAT BUGS incorporates songs from the Lennon/McCartney ‘Northern Songs’ catalogue, to tell uplifting and life-affirming stories filled with hope and melody. World-leading artists, animators and writers have come together to work on this extraordinary show. The Beat Bugs are charming, funny, adventurous, and have a knack for getting themselves into mischief and mayhem. Each of the five friends (Jay, Kumi, Crick, Buzz, and Walter) has a distinctive personality, and they display the charm and energy of five knockabout, lovable kids. They are best friends who band together to explore and learn in an overgrown suburban backyard, which to them is their entire universe.
The show will feature some of the most well-known Beatles songs woven into the narrative of each episode, with Eddie Vedder, P!nk, James Bay, Sia, The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Chris Cornell, Regina Spektor, and James Corden each recording their rendition of an iconic song. Further artists joining the project are expected to be announced in the coming months. Among the songs featured include Help!, All You Need Is Love, Come Together, Penny Lane, Yellow Submarine, Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Magical Mystery Tour.
Growing with Netflix: A Parent’s Guide
Screen time can also be family bonding time. Whether you like to snuggle up on the couch with your kids during the weekends, or you prefer to keep cartoon-watching with your kids to a good ten minutes before bedtime, Netflix respects your choice. In fact, you get to choose what your kids watch, when they watch and how long to watch for.
If you’re a first-timer, here are some simple Netflix hacks to get you started:
- Create profiles for your kids. With the ‘Manage Profiles’ feature, you get to create up to 5 different user profiles within a Netflix account. Sibling rivalry? Solved.
- Control data usage. With the ‘Cellular Data Usage’ settings in your Netflix app, watching Netflix on-the-go doesn’t have to bust your data caps. One gigabyte of data can stream up to 3 hours of TV shows and movies!
- Set parental controls. Keep those curious little fingers away from mature content, so you can relax while they have fun.
- Identify shows by characters. For visual learners, they can scroll through the row of characters at the top of the Kids section and select their favourites.
- Pause and play. Assure your kids that their favourite character will remain just the way you left them, allowing you to easily continue watching where you left off.
Netflix also put together a list of shows that are perfect for co-viewing and parent-child interaction, providing your family with a good dose of bonding during playtime, while giving your child space to grow and learn, no matter their age. Happy streaming!
