Amazon Studios is adding to its ever-growing slate of original kids series, with orders of Little Big Awesome (pictured) and Ronja the Robber’s Daughter.

Additionally, 26 new episodes of new preschool series The Stinky & Dirty Show have been greenlit.

All three shows will stream on Prime Video in the US, the UK, Germany, Austria and Japan.

Combining 2D animation, puppetry and live action, Little Big Awesome is aimed at kids ages six to 11. It is created by Tomas Dieguez (TRONCO), executive produced by Ben Gruber (SpongeBob SquarePants, Super Jail) and animated by L.A.-based studio Titmouse. The series follows Gluko, a jelly giant, and Lennon, a small kid-like creature with a fuzzy hat, who are inseparable buddies.

Ronja the Robber’s Daughter is based on the book series of the same name by Pippi Longstocking author Astrid Lindgren. Narrated by actress Gillian Anderson (The X Files), the 26-part animated series from Tokyo-based Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle) and Sweden-based Saltkrakan (the Astrid Lindgren Company) will debut later this fall.

The Dirty & Stinky Show, meanwhile, premiered on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK on September 2. Animated by Dublin-based Brown Bag Films, the series is based on the I Stink! books by Kate and Jim McMulla and features the celebrity voice talents of Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Lynch, Andy Richter and Joan Cusack.

The Dirty & Stinky Show teaches kids how to persevere through failures when things don’t go as expected, and each episode ends with a prompt for kids to take the skills and ideas they’ve learned and create their own real-world solutions.
