There’s nothing quite like animation – a medium that allows its creators to bring viewers on often fantastical adventures unlike any other. Thankfully, Prime Video has plenty of animated series streaming on its service, from old to new. We are taking a look strictly at series that are available with Prime – no additional subscriptions required. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at four of the best animated series currently on Prime Video.
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Well. You know. Since the series’ inception, SpongeBob SquarePants has appealed to children and adults alike through its quirky humor, trippy sequences, oddball music, and some of the funniest, most memorable characters ever created. While the complete series isn’t available on Prime Video, you can still catch seasons 1-5.
Rumble Leaf, Tumble Leaf! Fans of stop motion animation are in for a treat with this Prime Video exclusive series. The whimsical Tumble Leaf follows a young fox named Fig and the many adventures he has with his friends and neighbors on the island of Tumble Leaf. While the series is created for young children, the brilliant animation, charming characters, and overall lighthearted tone of the show can provide viewers of all ages with a welcome dose of sweetness.
Another Prime exclusive, Undone follows Rosa who, after a car crash, is able to travel through time. With this new ability, Rosa is determined to uncover the truth about her father’s mysterious death. Notable for its unique rotoscoping animation technique, Undone slowly unravels to reveal layer upon layer – just when you think you’ve figured out the show’s main mystery, the story takes you down another surprising path that destroys every theory you had. Season 1 only has eight episodes so you still have plenty of time to catch up before season 2 comes out!
Wallace & Gromit
