Do you have Netflix? We do and we love it. I don’t watch TV or even cable much, but Netflix is something I check out when I have time and I can always find a great documentary or original series or movie to watch. Netflix is the world’s largest internet TV service and it is not hard to understand why.
I want to share some great news! Netflix released their newest kid’s series, Bottersnikes & Gumbles Today!
The setting for this series is a fantasy kingdom of rusting junk and abandoned things AKA junkyard. Bottersnikes & Gumbles is geared to boys and girls ages 6-9 and having 2 boys in that range, I can tell you they loved the advance premier we watched together.
The animated graphics are amazing and the characters are awesome! Tink, Willi Bounce, Happi, Merry, Float, Jolli and Toot are the Gumbles.
The Gumbles live on Junk Highway in a Gumble Tree with an old school bus on it.
As you might assume from their names, they are fun-loving creatures but they are also quite adventurous. Their bodies have the ability to be stretched or squashed just about any way they want to. The way they move around is called “gumbling” and their favorite snacks are grubs which you might expect are plentiful living on Junk Highway.
While all this sounds delightful in a Gumble sort of way the Bottersnikes are not. The Bottersnikes live in Snike Hill and are ruled by the most awful Bottersnike, King Bottersnike.
They are not fun-loving like the Gumbles, they are mean spirited and more than that, they are stinky, lazy, selfish and mostly evil creatures. They don’t look nice either, they have hard, scaly skin, sharp teeth, claws and ears that glow red-hot when angry, which is almost all of the time!
They enjoy a diet of rusty nails but their favorite treat is mattress stuffing. One thing they really don’t like is water, if they get wet they shrink! You can check out more on their website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This series is very entertaining, I hope you check it out with your kids and let me know what you think in the comments.
