Not to be outdone, Turbo and the team are revving their engines for all new episodes from the first season of Turbo FAST, available for streaming on 4th April.  Netflix's first original series for kids launched at Christmas last year and became an instant favourite across the world.

"We could not be having more fun as we create this content for Netflix," said Margie Cohn, Head of Television at DreamWorks Animation. "Each show is so diverse and the platform gives us so many opportunities to play with our characters in new and surprising ways.  Our goal is to keep the audience always wondering what we'll come up with next …"

"I am pretty sure this is the first time the word 'beloved' has been applied to a cat, a lemur, vegetables and snails in the same sentence, but Dreamworks Animation has an incredible knack for creating characters that kids around the world adore," said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President, Original Content. "We're very excited about launching the latest episodes of Turbo FAST in the coming weeks, and the three new series by the end of the year."
