Australia’s Fade In Studio and Brazil-based Dogzilla Studio are partnering on a new music-focused web series entitled Hip Hop Howls.
Available through Sesame Workshop’s Sesame Studios YouTube channel, Hop Hop Howls will feature Saturday Night Live alumni and The Lonely Island members Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone as Flap and Fly, two owls who teach preschoolers how to tackle new challenges through music.
Created by Kyle Logan, the animated series features original songs composed by Nashville-based hip hop artist Tre Houston.
Sesame Workshop launched its Sesame Studios YouTube channel in 2016 to create a completely online destination offering short-form series and original content outside of Sesame’s familiar Muppets. In addition to Fade In Studio and Dogzilla Studio, Sesame Studios’ programming team has partnered with a number of online stars and third-party creators for content focusing on a range of curricular areas like literacy, math, health and social-emotional development.
