Frog and Toad is based on the Arnold Lobel book series, which follows the adventures of the titular Frog (Faxon) and Toad (Richardson), two anthropomorphic amphibians.

"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," an official description reads.

Ron Funches, Fortune Feimster, Cole Escola, Aparna Nancherla, John Hodgman, Yvette Nicole Brown, Stephen Tobolowsky, Tom Kenny, Selena Luna, Margaret Cho and Betsy Sodaro also have voice roles.

Rob Hoegee will serve as showrunner and executive produce with Adrianne Lobel, Adam Lobel, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio and Ben Kalina. Titmouse studio will produce the animation.
