Here’s a brief synopsis for each.

For preschoolers

Treehouse Detectives (2018)

Treehouse Detectives is the story of “two curious bears that are no strangers to adventure.

Why do leaves fall from the trees?

Super Monsters (2017)

Super Monsters is about six friends at Pitchfork Pines Preschool – Drac, Cleo, Lobo, Katya, Zoe and Frankie — who are “humans by day and magical monsters by night.” Each episode will explore “kindergarten readiness skills like sharing, communicating feelings and respecting others.”

Robozuna tells the tale of “an orphaned 14-year-old boy, Ariston, and his homemade robot friend, Mangle,” as they “attempt to free their oppressed nation from an evil empire and its legion of robot centurions.”
