(Newser) – Netflix is winning plenty of praise for original series like House of Cards, and now the subscription service is setting the bar a little lower—say, about three feet high. It's teaming up with DreamWorks Animation to create a kids cartoon series, reports the AP. The story of a super-quick snail, Turbo: FAST will make its debut in December, following the July release of the Turbo movie, based on the same characters. The move comes just two months after Netflix announced a big deal with Disney that starts in 2016.
