Looking at this list, you would think Apple thought they never had any kids or family stuff on their streaming service.

Today, Apple announced that it is debuting a ton of new kids and family series on Apple TV+. It also announced the return of a number of existing shows as well.

New original series coming to the platform this autumn include “Sago Mini Friends,” an animated series based on characters from the award-winning Sago Mini World app; “Slumberkins,” a mixed-media puppet/2D animation program from the beloved children’s emotional learning brand empowering children to be caring, confident and resilient, and produced by The Jim Henson Company; “Circuit Breakers,” a futuristic anthology series that tackles kid-relatable issues through a sci-fi lens; and “Interrupting Chicken,” an animated preschool series which illuminates the joy of reading, writing and storytelling for children, and stars the voice talents of three-time Emmy Award winner Sterling K. Brown.

The acclaimed series returning this fall include the Emmy Award-winning series “Ghostwriter” with an entirely new cast, animated adventure epic “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory,” charming friendship and farming tale “Get Rolling with Otis,” and Jack McBrayer’s sweet, music-forward “Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show.” Additionally, even more classic Peanuts titles will be made available to fans, many for the first time in decades.
