Danger & Eggs is an American animated series that premiered on Amazon Video on June 30, 2017.[1]

Plot[edit]

D.D. Danger, an imaginative thrill seeker, and her best friend, a lawful good, safety-first anthropomorphic egg named Phillip, experience a series of enjoyably chaotic adventures as "they do stuff". Or, as the theme song aptly sums it up - "it's kind of hard to explain".
