A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Storybots Super Songs is a music-centric spin-off of the popular Ask the Storybots program and features the same funny, colorful crew of bots kids have grown to love. The show has a broader scope than its predecessor, and every episode features multiple short music videos about various topics, from outer space to farm animals.
What's the story?
STORYBOTS SUPER SONGS is an animated show featuring the adorable bot pals Beep, Bing, Bang, Boop, and Bo, whom kids may know from the Storybots series of apps or from their popular Netflix show Ask the Storybots. While their previous show centers on having the bots find the answers to one general question (such as, Where does rain come from?), the format of Storybots Super Songs allows them to widen their scope by presenting short-form music videos about more expansive subjects (such as "Vehicles" or "Emotions"). The bots interact with real-life kids between the videos as they explore each theme, which allows kids viewing at home to imagine themselves being a part of the action, too.
Is it any good?
With a talented voice cast (including Judy Greer), a gorgeous range of animation styles, and songs that are both catchy and educational, this is the rare kid's show that parents may enjoy as well. The writing is sharp and witty, with genuine laughs. The characters do a great job of conveying a surprisingly large amount of information while keeping things light and fun. It of course helps that the videos are short, and the variety of musical styles will keep kids from getting bored. Storybots Super Songs is an absolute treat visually and skips around effortlessly among various types of animation; one segment might be done with stop-motion puppetry, one may use traditional 2D animation, and the next might look like a watercolor painting. It's hard to imagine a kid who wouldn't find this show to be an engaging experience, and the fact that the songs are just as likely to delight parents makes it even better.
