Magic, Mystery and Adventure Await in Six New Animated Series for Kids Coming to Netflix

Beverly Hills, Calif., October 6, 2016 - Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), the world's leading Internet TV network, announced today the addition of six new original animated shows that provide best-in-class storytelling for kids of all ages. The new series (LEGO Elves, The Hollow, Kibaoh Klashers, Robozuna, Treehouse Detectives and Super Monsters) will take viewers on wild rides and enchanting adventures that are sure to captivate young audiences everywhere.

Older kids will be met with suspense and intrigue in four new action-packed shows. In LEGO Elves, viewers will be transported to a magical yet dangerous forest as a group of humans and elves team up to protect their worlds from a wicked goblin king. In The Hollow, strangers-turned-friends scavenge through a surreal mystery world as they desperately search for a way back home. Kids can seek even more thrills as they root for a heroic car-racing beetle in Kibaoh Klashers, and join a quest for freedom in Robozuna, where a teenage boy and his homemade robot fight to take down an evil empire.

The youngest Netflix members will also get in on the fun with two new shows debuting for preschoolers next year. In Treehouse Detectives, they will navigate and solve nature's mysteries alongside a curious duo of brother-sister bear investigators. And, in Super Monsters, they will meet a kindergarten class of playful young monsters who are learning to master their seemingly untamable super powers through simple readiness skills.

"At Netflix, we celebrate creativity and love sharing stories that expose kids to new and inspiring worlds," said Andy Yeatman, director of global kids content for Netflix. "We work with the best storytellers in the industry to craft shows like these that unlock children's imaginations."

Details on each show can be found below:

Super Monsters, 41 Entertainment - 2017

From acclaimed producer Avi Arad comes Super Monsters, an all-new animated series for kids following the adventures of six friends and their not-so traditional preschool experience. As preschoolers with super powers, Drac, Cleo, Lobo, Katya, Zoe and Frankie are students with dual identities: humans by day and magical monsters by night. Enrolled at the prestigious Pitchfork Pines Preschool, the group of friends work together under the leadership of their teachers, Igor and Esmie, as they attempt to master their seemingly untamable powers. Each episode of the series features kindergarten readiness skills like sharing, communicating feelings and respecting others. Pitchfork Pines opens its doors next year, with Season 1 of Super Monsters launching late 2017. The new series is the latest collaboration between Netflix, Arad and 41 Entertainment, who also partnered on Kong: King of the Apes as well as the highly-anticipated Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan and Jane.

Treehouse Detectives, Saban Brands/Sunwoo Animation - 2018

From Saban Brands and Korean studio Sunwoo Animation comes Treehouse Detectives, a new CG animated children's series following two curious bears that are no strangers to adventure. Big-hearted Toby and his more rational sister Teri form a snap team of detectives, called upon to solve the neighborhood's mysteries - What happened to the snowman? Where did all the caterpillars go? Why do leaves fall from the trees? Fueled by teamwork and determination, the two bears and their lovable friends leave no mystery unsolved in this animated series for preschoolers. Season 1 of Treehouse Detectives will launch on Netflix around the world in 2018, and at a later date in South Korea.
