And now this fab fivesome can boast a Daytime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program, as well as nominations in a further four categories.

“With Beat Bugs we started with the greatest songwriting of all time, and with a team of extraordinary writers, we tried to do it justice. Thank you to the Academy,” said Josh Wakely, writer, director and producer of Beat Bugs.
