Amazon’s most awarded kids series, created by Drew Hodges and executive produced by Kelli Bixler, grows with 12 new episodes that celebrate learning through play.
Award-winning Amazon Original Series Tumble Leaf debuts its third season on Tuesday, August 15, with 12 new episodes on Prime Video in the US and UK. Tumble Leaf follows Fig, a small blue fox, who lives in a whimsical land where he discovers adventure and friendship around every bend. The imagination-inspiring stop-motion animated series reinforces the importance of learning through play as it helps preschoolers understand the exciting world around them.
Created by Drew Hodges (Community, SNL) and executive produced by Hodges and Kelli Bixler (The Roadents, SNL) of the award-winning studio, Bix Pix Entertainment, the vibrant new season will be available to stream exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online. Prime members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost.
Tumble Leaf invites viewers into a wonder-filled world just waiting to be explored: each episode centers on the adventures of Tumble Leaf’s most thoughtful, creative and delightfully-curious dweller, Fig the fox. The outdoor-loving Fig lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea, where every day he finds a new object of interest, provided by Gingko the crab, that sets him off on fun, nature-centered expeditions. With his trusty companion Stick, a caterpillar who lives in a tiny barrel attached to Fig’s arm; and friends Maple, a plucky polar bear; Hedge, a humble hedgehog; and Pine the porcupine, Fig spends each day playing, making scientific discoveries and seeking answers about his world.
In Season 3, Fig’s universe expands with new places and special friends, including Pebble the spider, Bonsai the whale and Bird of Paradise. The latest episodes help teach young viewers gentle life lessons through topics that are universally relatable for preschoolers such as a friend moving away and dealing with disappointment.
