As a parent of elementary aged children and pre-teens, there are plenty of TV shows they watch that drive me crazy. Then there are the shows that catch my attention and I pretend now to watch with them. There is a certain show on Disney Channel (which I won’t mention), that I set to record on the DVR, and practically force the kids to come watch it with me, so I don’t look silly watching it alone. Kids’ shows are all over the gamut, and premiering this Friday, June 24th, is the all new Bizaardvark on Disney Channel. I’ve gotten a sneak peek at the first episode, as well as a set visit, and this will be a show I’ll definitely watch with the kids.
Bizaardvark is a new live-action comedy starring Olivia Rodrigo and Madison Hu as video blogging besties Paige and Frankie. The series follows Paige and Frankie, who don’t feel like they fit in with most kids their age. They write funny songs and create music comedy videos for their online channel, “Bizaardvark.” We learn about their love for music and humor, and their insecurities of feeling out of place, until they make it to Vuugle (the internet’s home for popular video channels). The cast is topped off with Vine sensation Jake Paul as Dirk (host of “Dare Me Bro!”), DeVore Ledridge as Amelia (host of “Perfect Perfection with Amelia”), and Ethan Wacker as 12-year-old agent Bernie. Tune in as Paige and Frankie try to fit in the world of Vuugle.
Things to love about Bizaardvark
A few things I am already loving about Bizaardvark:
- Being different is okay, and even encouraged.
- Paige and Frankie make up some seriously funny, and clever songs!
- Kids can totally relate to the premise of the show, and connection to watching or making online videos. I mean, that’s what my kids would do all day if I let them!
So don’t miss the premiere of Bizaardvark on Disney Channel, this Friday! The song at the end of the first episode is hilarious!!! Come back and let me know what you think.
I received an all expense paid trip, for the purposes of scoping out Finding Dory and Bizaardvark. All opinions are my own.
