StoryBots Super Songs is an American animated children's television series based on the characters from the StoryBots educational apps and videos. It was produced by JibJab Productions and released by Rainmaker Entertainment in collaboration with Powerhouse Animation Studios.[1] Episodes have also been released in full monthly on StoryBots' official YouTube channel.[2]

StoryBots Super Songs serves as a companion show to Ask the StoryBots, the inaugural television series in the StoryBots franchise, which premiered on August 12, 2016, also on Netflix.



StoryBots Super Songs centers on the StoryBots, who are curious little creatures who live in the world beneath our screens. However, while its predecessor Ask the StoryBots follows Beep, Bing, Bang, Boop and Bo as they answer a child's single question (like "why is the sky blue?"), the music-centric Super Songs has the characters exploring broader subject areas.

"From the day Ask the StoryBots launched back in August, we’ve been inundated with requests from kids, parents and teachers all over the world for more episodes," said show co-creator Gregg Spiridellis. "We’re happy to be able to answer that call in a fun, new way with StoryBots Super Songs."

"StoryBots caught fire online because of our catchy, short-form music videos on subjects like dinosaurs, shapes, colors, the alphabet and more," said Evan Spiridellis, show co-creator. "This new format lets us tap into that heritage by mixing our trademark tunes with animated and live-action vignettes featuring our lead characters interacting with real kids."[3]


The series premiered with 10 episodes. Each episode focuses on one topic:[3]

StoryBots Super Songs was rated "excellent" by the Brigham Young University's Children's Book & Media Review, which noted that the StoryBots "present interesting, complex, and sometimes goofy pieces of information together in a simple, entertaining, and memorable way that children will appreciate," while "the different mix of animation styles and live action in this TV show will keep children on the edge of their seats."[14]
