Amazon: Free ‘Surprise’

On April 30, Amazon Prime’s Tumble Leaf is up for its third consecutive Daytime Emmy as “Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program.” If you’re not a Prime subscriber and want to see what makes Tumble Leaf so great, Amazon will offer its latest episode free for three days starting tomorrow, April 14.

In Tumble Leaf, a blue fox (Fig), a caterpillar (Stick) and other stop-action characters help kids “learn basic science lessons through playful examples” (Wikipedia). In the free “Spring-A-Ling Surprise” episode, Amazon explains, “everyone helps Bloom the bunny hunt for his lost eggs, which he plans to plant for a spectacular spring surprise, and Fig uncovers many other signs of the bright and sunny season of spring along the way.”

You can stream Tumble Leaf‘s “Spring-A-Ling Surprise” free on Amazon Prime from 3 am ET Friday through 2:59 am ET Monday. Amazon Prime subscribers can also stream two full seasons (26 half-hours) of the series.

The 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are scheduled for 8 pm ET on Sunday, April 30. There’s still no word on whether or not the event will be televised or streamed.
