Netflix said it is producing three new series for preschool viewers:

Charlie’s Colorforms City –  “The stickiest new storytelling adventure series for preschoolers, where the loveable and hilarious Charlie leads viewers on unpredictable and imaginative shape-filled story expeditions alongside a colorful cast of characters”;

Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt – Based on author Chris Monroe’s picture books, this series “is an ultra-silly construction comedy that teaches preschoolers about the mechanical world and how things work.”;

Go! Go! Cory Carson – Based on Go! Go! Smart Wheels from VTech Electronics, the show “follows the adventures of kid car Cory Carson as he navigates the winding roads of childhood in Bumperton Hills.”

The streamer did not provide premiere dates for the three series.

Also for preschoolers, Netflix plans to debut Treehouse Detectives this year.

Treehouse Detectives tells the story of “two curious bears that are no strangers to adventure. Big-hearted Toby and his more rational sister Teri” are detectives who “solve the neighborhood’s mysteries – What happened to the snowman? Where did all the caterpillars go? Why do leaves fall from the trees?”

Finally, young viewers can watch the recently released 10-episode first season of Super Monsters.

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.”
