Beat Bugs is he name of a new animated series inspired by The Beatles, the one-time band of audio emoji innovator Paul McCartney. Each episode draws its story from a different Beatles song, which means the episode based on “Happiness Is a Warm Gun” should be a real trip.
Because Netflix blew too much money on reviving Full House, the soundtrack does not feature any original Beatles material, but rather covers sung by the likes of The Shins, Regina Spektor, Chris Cornell, and Sia. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is also a contributor, and you can hear his magnificent interpretation of “Magical Mystery Tour” in the show’s newly revealed trailer.
Beat Bugs is set to premiere on Netflix in August.
