Apple is excited to share a clip from the live-action preschool series “Helpsters,” returning to Apple TV+ on Friday, April 3 with seven all-new episodes. The enclosed clip showcases a new, original song and dance routine performed by Grammy Award-winning artist Ne-Yo alongside the Helpsters.
“Helpsters” is part of Apple’s continuing commitment to family-first content and a trusted destination where parents and caregivers can source immersive, educational and entertaining content to stream for their families at home.
“Helpsters” follows Cody and the Helpsters, a team of vibrant monsters who love to solve problems.

From the makers of “Sesame Street,” the series, which won a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal award, is recommended for ages 3-5. Preschoolers will discover the power of teamwork with the engaging and encouraging Helpsters, while absorbing important lessons in pre-coding skills, self-confidence, collaboration, effective communication and much more. Guest stars in the first six episodes of “Helpters,” which debuted on November 1 and are currently available on Apple TV+, included Rachel Dratch, Alan Cummings, Amber Tamblyn, Vanessa Bayer, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz and more.
