Season Three of Amazon Original Kids Series "Tumble Leaf" Debuts on August 15 on Prime Video

Amazon's Most Award-Winning Kids Series Created by Drew Hodges and Executive Produced by Kelli Bixler Grows with 12 New Episodes that Celebrate Learn through Play

On Tuesday, August 15, award-winning Amazon Original Series Tumble Leaf is set to debut its third season with 12 new episodes on Prime Video in the US and UK. Tumble Leaf follows Fig, a small blue fox, who lives in a whimsical land where he discovers adventure and friendship around every bend. The imagination-inspiring stop-motion animated series reinforces the importance of learning through play as it helps preschoolers understand the exciting world around them. Created by Drew Hodges (Community, SNL) and executive produced by Hodges and Kelli Bixler (The Roadents, SNL) of the award-winning studio, Bix Pix Entertainment, the vibrant new season will be available to stream exclusively for Prime members via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online - Prime members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.

Tumble Leaf invites viewers into a wonder-filled world just waiting to be explored! Each engaging episode centers on the adventures of Tumble Leaf's most thoughtful, creative and delightfully-curious dweller, Fig the fox. The outdoor-loving Fig lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea, where every day he finds a new object of interest, provided by Gingko the crab, that sets him off on fun, nature-centered expeditions. With his trusty companion Stick, a caterpillar who lives in a tiny barrel attached to Fig's arm; and friends Maple, a plucky polar bear; Hedge, a humble hedgehog; and Pine the porcupine, Fig spends each day playing, making scientific discoveries and seeking answers about his world.

In Season 3, Fig's universe expands with new places and special friends, including Pebble the spider, Bonsai the whale and Bird of Paradise! The latest episodes help teach young viewers gentle life lessons through topics that are universally relatable for preschoolers such as a friend moving away and dealing with disappointment.

"We're delighted to offer a third season of Amazon's beloved kids series and continue our mission of offering high-quality children's programming that helps our audiences learn and grow," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "We are honored that this unique series has received so many awards, and with all-new adventures, irresistible characters and stunning animation, the latest season of Tumble Leaf is sure to win over viewers everywhere, too."

Tumble Leaf features the voice talent of Christopher Downs as Fig, Brooke Wolloff as Maple, Zac McDowell as Hedge, Addie Zintel as Pine, and Alex Trugman as Ginkgo. Tumble Leaf has garnered numerous awards, including nine Daytime Emmys, winning "Outstanding Preschool Children's Animated Program" and "Outstanding Directing in a Preschool Animated Program (Drew Hodges)" in 2015 and 2016, the Jury Award for a TV series at the 2014 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, three Annie Awards for "Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Preschool Children," and three Parents' Choice Gold Awards. In addition, Christopher Downs (Fig) won the Young Artist Award in 2015 for "Best Performance in a Voice-Over Role - Young Actor 10 or Under," and Christopher Downs, Brook Wolloff (Maple) and Zac McDowell (Hedge) won the Young Entertainer Award in 2016 for "Best Voice-Over by an Ensemble Cast." Tumble Leaf was also nominated for a prestigious Peabody Award.
