"Marc Brown’s “Hop” Now Streaming on Max"​


"Hop, the new preschool series from Arthur creator Marc Brown, is now streaming on Max.

Co-created by Brown, former Arthur head writer Peter K. Hirsch, and Brown’s son Tolon, Hop centers on a group of best friends who go on adventures that teach preschoolers to embrace people’s uniqueness, both that of their own and of others. With Hop, a frog with one leg shorter than the other, these friends address various kid relatable challenges.

Set in a community called Fair Village, the episodes are grounded in emotional reality but goes into fantasy, with a world populated by dragons, trolls, and talking banjos. The series sets out to captivate audiences with journeys that include friendship, life lessons, and endless possibilities.

Hop marks a significant milestone in children’s entertainment, with the entire main cast having some type of disability or other thing that makes them different, which sets out to help kids relate to challenges that are reflected in the show. RespectAbility, a nonprofit organization that fights stigma and works to advance opportunity for people with disabilities, consults on the series."

Happy 20th Birthday to the Cartoon Network City Era!

Watching this clip from the Princess Power special "Princess Royal Wedding", where Queen Ryung & Queen Olivia get married, makes me glad that the show was picked up by a streaming service. If it was picked up by the Junior 3 (Disney Jr, Nick Jr , & PBS Kids), an episode like this either wouldn't be made or if it,would come when the show was went to a less available channel
