Kids Shows on Netflix: Watch Beat Bugs Online or on Apple TV

There are so many options for cartoons and kids shows on Netflix to stream through your Apple TV or iPad, that it can be hard to know where to begin. There are always new choices for your children! One recent favorite of my preschooler is Beat Bugs. Beat Bugs is a cartoon for kids four and up starring five animated bug friends. The episodes each feature a different Beatles song incorporated into the storyline, and the cartoon also highlights teamwork and positive communication without being too heavy handed with the message. Beat Bugs is available exclusively on Netflix, which means you need to be subscribed to Netflix. With a Netflix subscription your child will be able to watch Beat Bugs online through your iPhone, iPad, Macbook, or other app-enabled device. You can also stream the show through your Apple TV or smart TV Beat Bugs online through your iPhone, iPad, Macbook, or Apple TV.
