Apple TV+ released the trailer for the highly anticipated animated kids and family series Frog and Toad, premiering on 28 April. The show is based on the beloved Caldecott and Newbery Honor-winning four-book series by Arnold Lobel, published by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
The talented voice cast includes Academy Award winner Nat Faxon (Our Flag Means Death, The Connors) and Emmy Award nominee Kevin Michael Richardson (The Simpsons, Family Guy) as Frog and Toad.

Apple TV+ describes the upcoming show as: Frog is a frog. Toad is a toad. They have a lot in common … but they are also very different. Frog and Toad are best friends who know that the true secret to friendship is not only enjoying the things you have in common, but embracing the things that make you different. Since our differences are what makes us special, Frog and Toad celebrate what makes them unique!
