Single desperate mom

I needed a "babysitter" to get some chores/cooking done. I'm not that keen on letting my kids watch any tv programs. However, i was desperate to keep my 2yr old out from under my feet while cooking. Single mom here, no breaks ever, so iwas desperate and I was browsing netflix for anything that would capture his attention and came across Beat Bugs. I gave it a try and before i knew it, i was watching right along with him. It's an excellent program. Teaches creativity, uniqueness and teamwork. The music is very uplifting. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BEAT BUGS! I'm the parent that has never even allowed my now 11yr old to watch spongebob. That's how picky i am.

Definitely a must see program

There have been so many really awesome musical programs through the years but Beat Bugs has become the best show, hands down. The Beatles were a famous group in the 1970s and to make cover versions of their music was, to me, music to my ears. This program is definitely for future generations to see. I absolutely love this program. Thank you to everyone that worked on Beat Bugs. It's a great cartoon to watch. Highly recommend!
