Sia, Pink and James Bay sing The Beatles hits for new Netflix kids series

'Beat Bugs' features over 50 songs made famous by the Fab Four

Netflix has today announced a new Kids’ Original series, inspired by the music of The Beatles (February 10).

Created by Josh Wakely, Beat Bugs sees a number of international artists taking on some of the Fab Four’s biggest hits, with the likes of Sia, Pink and James Bay all stepping up to the challenge.

The likes of Of Monsters And Men, The Shins, Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, Regina Spektor and Birdy also feature.

James Corden also swaps his usual stint on The Late Late Show by being a part of the musical cast.


Featuring over 50 songs made famous by The Beatles, Sia takes on ‘Blackbird’ for the animated series, while Pink performs ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’.

In a press release, the ‘Beat Bugs’ are described as “charming, funny and adventurous”, while they also “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, loveable kids.

“They are best friends who band together to explore and learn in an overgrown suburban backyard, which to them is their entire universe.”

Beat Bugs is set to hit Netflix in August 2016.
