Matty Shapiro and Jonny Jonah Talk The Importance Of Music In BeatBuds, Let’s Jam! [Exclusive Interview]

The Beatbuds

Music is so important to the development of children. I also think that it’s also very important to the mental well-being of adults. So when developing children’s entertainment it’s important to include catchy tunes! This week preschoolers and their parents can now rock out with Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated series, The BeatBuds, Let’s Jam! 

Previously known as The BeatBuds, this series is based on the popular kids’ music duo. It premiered today on Nickelodeon. New episodes of The BeatBuds, Let’s Jam! will air daily through Friday, June 11, at 9 a.m. (ET/PT). They will also air daily June 7th-11th at 6 p.m. (ET/PT) on the Nick Jr. channel.

The BeatBuds

Below is the synopsis for the series as well as what we can expect from the series premiere for The BeatBuds, Let’s Jam!

In The BeatBuds, Let’s Jam!, rock ‘n’ roll duo and best friends Jonny and Matty, a.k.a. The BeatBuds are traveling to their big concert, The BeatBASH. As they journey to the show in The Beat Bus, they have awesome fun-filled experiences making new friends and performing their songs with everyone and everything they encounter.

In the series premiere, “Hello BeatBuddies/The Silly Monkey,” Jonny and Matty are on their way to the Beat Bash when they get pulled into space by a friendly alien named Greeny, and must introduce themselves through the song “Hello BeatBuddies.” Then, The BeatBuds’ practice gets a monkey wrench thrown in it when they can’t find their instruments. They discover a Silly Monkey took their gear and are led on a wild monkey chase as they sing “The Silly Monkey.”
