Once the animator of the silly animated segments on Saturday Night Live in the 1990s, Drew Hodges, is now making one of the highest-quality children’s programs today. One of the first children’s programs produced as an Amazon Original Series, Tumble Leaf is now in its third season.

If you want to learn more about the Bix Pix studio, they have a Tumble Leaf feature page for how Tumble Leaf was developed. It also walks readers through their process for producing each stop-motion animated show.

Highlight Episodes

I enlisted my 4-year-old daughter to point out these favorite episodes.

Season 1

Season 2

Season 3


Tumble Leaf is a sweet show that, so far, has no political agenda underlying the storylines. The lead characters recognize obstacles and workout solutions to their problems. The show is good-natured and very appealing to the eye.

Several children I know, my own and in other families, watch this show over and over. With three seasons out, there is a lot of great material to enjoy.
