School of Laughter 2020 Highlights

The new decade is upon us and while it’s not back to school just yet, we’ve found the most entertaining shows for kids with hours of school of laughter fun!


For the fearless

Anne is a fearlessly independent teen who’s just stumbled upon a magical device that’s taken her to a marshland of frog people. With her outgoing personality, she befriends Sprig Plantar (a frog) and the whole unhinged Plantar family. Sprig and Anne soon realise they share more similarities even though they’re so physically different, and a budding kinship develops that surprises everyone. This animated series is based on executive producer Matt Braly’s heritage and family trips to Bangkok during his childhood.
