Amazon Studios has announced it has signed on for second seasons of current original kids’ animated series Creative Galaxy and award-winner Tumble Leaf; plus live-action shows Annedroids and Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street. All four series will return exclusively to Prime Instant Video for streaming. All four shows have also recently been honored by the Parents’ Choice Foundation.
Tumble Leaf, created by SNL alum Drew Hodges and executive produced by Kelli Bixler of Bix Pix Entertainment is aimed at preschoolers and follows Fig, a naturally curious blue fox, and his best friend Stick, a quirky caterpillar, as they embark on fun and nature-filled adventures and learn science through play. The Annecy and Annie award-winning series features the voices of Christopher Downs as Fig, Brooke Wolloff, Zac McDowell, Addie Zintel and Alex Trugman.
Creative Galaxy, from Out of the Blue Enterprises and created by Angela C. Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Super Why!, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood), is a make-along, create-along art adventure series for pre-k viewers. Animated by 9 Story Ent., the show features Arty, an adorable alien artist, and his inspirational side-kick Epiphany, who travel through the Creative Galaxy solving problems through art. A live-action endcap on each episode takes families through the featured craft project. The voice cast stars Christian Distefano as Arty and Kira Gelineau as Epiphany, and guest stars Samantha Bee (The Daily Show), Jason Jones (The Daily Show), Cloris Leachman (Malcolm in the Middle), Jason Priestley (Beverly HIlls 90210) and Brooke Shields.
