New Pete the Cat series on Amazon Prime Video


Friends, I am excited to share with you that one of the coolest cats that we know is now going to have his very own show on Amazon Prime Video! Yes, Pete the Cat is going to have a new series that premieres today, September 21st on Amazon Prime Video!

My children love these books and I love reading them because we pretty much get to sing while we read these books, but now we will get to see an animated version of Pete and some of his friends. You know what is cooler than seeing an animated Pete and his friends? Meeting Pete's parents who are voiced by Diana Krall and Elvis Costello.  Check out the trailer below and continue on to see the official word from Amazon.



Based on the best-selling children’s books, Pete the Cat is a fun, musically driven series about exploring your world and trying new things, while being smart, accepting, and optimistic. Whether you’re making new friends or facing all of life’s ups and downs, Pete always finds a way to put a groovy spin on things. The series stars Jacob Tremblay (Room) as Pete the Cat, and musicians Diana Krall and Elvis Costello as his Mom and Dad. Pete the Cat features original music from Grammy Award-winners Costello and Krall, which will also be available to stream via Amazon Music. Jessica Biel (The Illusionist), Atticus Shaffer (The Middle) and internationally acclaimed musician KT Tunstall also star in the series.

In season one of Pete the Cat, the show highlights themes of self-discovery. Pete stays cool as he tries new things, sets out for picture day, writes his first song, learns to surf and even has his first performance for his band. Scored with an upbeat, groovy soundtrack, Pete the Cat encourages children to be curious, creative, and positive while rockin’ to their own beat.

The character “Pete the Cat” was created by author/illustrator James Dean and is the beloved star of over 40 popular children’s books. The books have been translated into 13 languages and have received 18 literacy awards to date, including the Theodore Geisel Seuss Award. Families will be able to see Pete and his friends come to life in the series. The holiday special Pete the Cat: A Groovy New Year is available now for streaming here.

Pete the Cat is a co-production with Amazon Studios and Alcon Television Group. It is developed by Jeff “Swampy” Marsh (Phineas and Ferb) and Appian Way Production Company. Marsh serves as executive producer along with Alcon’s Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, and Laura Lancaster, as well as Appian Way’s Jennifer Davisson.

Pete the Cat will be available for Prime members globally to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online with other Amazon Original Series online at Amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership. Eligible customers who are not already Prime members can sign up for a free trial at www.amazon.com/prime. For a list of all Amazon Video compatible devices, visit www.amazon.com/howtostream.
