If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Among Amazon’s Fall Lineup


Amazon has unveiled its fall slate of kids’ originals, including new and returning series, that will be available exclusively on Prime Video.

Among the new series coming to Amazon Prime Video for kids this fall is Sid and Marty Krofft’s Sigmund and the Sea Monsters. Premiering on October 13, the show follows two brothers, Johnny and Scotty, who find a live sea monster named Sigmund. The brothers befriend Sigmund and hide him in their clubhouse, but keeping him a secret may be impossible. On November 7, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie will make its debut. The series is based on the books by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.

The fall lineup will also feature the returning series Wishenpoof and The Stinky & Dirty Show, both entering their second seasons. New episodes of Wishenpoof, which centers on Bianca, a fairy who can grant wishes using Wish Magic, arrive on September 26. The Stinky & Dirty Show, based on the I Stink! book series by Kate and Jim McMullan, also returns this fall. All series will premiere first in the U.S. and U.K. and will be made available worldwide at a later date.

“We’re honored to reintroduce If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and Sigmund’s iconic character to a new generation of kids and families,” said Tara Sorensen, the head of kids’ programming at Amazon Studios. “Our fall slate will bring customers more engaging and heartwarming stories to enjoy with their families.”
