I was just telling my wife about this one the other night, not even realizing that it wasn't formally announced yet, but now the little furry creatures are officially out of the bag: THE POPPLES are back. Originally introduced as toys and an animated series back in 1985, Saban Brands is bringing the adventures of these little furballs (who transform from fuzzy balls into friends and then "pop" back again) to NETFLIX as an all-new, 26-episode animated series set to debut in 2015.

THE POPPLESThe Netflix team tells THE ROCK FATHER that "each episode's fantastical adventure will be driven by the wacky and comedic enthusiasm of the lovable Best Popple Pals (BPP's): Bubbles, Sunny, Lulu, Izzy and Yikes. Always wanting to help their friends, neighbors and each other, the BPP's optimistic intentions typically backfire in hilarious ways, leading them to find new and crazy ways to unwind the mayhem they've caused. Luckily they always manage to save the day in their own POP-tastic way."

Stay tuned for more in the months ahead...
