DreamWorks Animation’s new animated series Turbo FAST has premiered on Netflix. In its debut this week, five initial episodes have been made available for instant streaming. More episodes will be added weekly.
It feels like only yesterday I was seeing the first previews for DreamWorks’ Turbo, but the film about a snail who dreams of being a racer that debuted this summer has already leant itself to a spinoff cartoon series to premiere this month. The show, titled Turbo FAST, will premiere on Netflix as their first original series for kids and will likely be a hit with very young children. I found the movie to be a predictable rehashing of far better scripts, but there were some moments and characters enjoyable to watch.
