A couple of years ago, I wrote a freelance episode of the animated preschool series Charlie’s Colorforms City (Netflix). The episode is called “Charlie and Little Bo Peep.” It’s one of the “Classic Tales with a Twist” eps, and it’s currently streaming.
Here’s the official synopsis of “Charlie and Little Bo Peep”:
“Animal detective Charlie is on the case! He disguises himself and goes undercover to help Little Bo Peep solve the mystery of her missing sheep.”
