Netflix has announced that Irish animated TV show Puffin Rock is among four new original series for kids being added to the service.
The pre-school show is narrated by Chris O'Dowd and is one of two pre-school shows - the other being Cirque du Soleil - Luna Letunia.
Puffin Rock is set on a beautiful island off the coast of Ireland where Oona, a plucky young puffin, and her little brother Baba, explore an array of sea, sky, land and underground creatures.
Penguin Random House Children’s, Dog Ears, and twice-Oscar-nominated animation studio Cartoon Saloon (Song of the Sea and Secret of Kells) partnered on the 13-episode season, which will premiere on September 1.
Also new to the streaming service are action adventure stories Kulipari: An Army of Frogs and Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan and Jane. Each show will launch all of its episodes at the same time around the world.
