An 'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie' adaptation and the Aidy Bryant-voiced 'Danger & Eggs' are just two of the shows set to debut on Amazon later this year, where viewers can vote on which pilots should be given full-season orders.

Amazon Studios has greenlit six more animated pilots, including an adaptation of the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie book series, Moonbot Studios' The Numberlys and Eddie of the Realms Eternal, from Emmy award-winning writers Bill Motz and Bob Roth.

All six shows will debut on Nov. 5, when viewers can, per Amazon's distinctive approach, vote on which ones should go forward as original kids series.

The slate of animated pilots include a preschool show based on the book series If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, written and developed by Emmy Award-winning writer Ken Scarborough.

There's also another preschool pilot, The Numberlys, also written by an Emmy Award winner, Joe Fallon, and four pilots for kids 6 to 11 years old. Those include Danger & Eggs, produced by Yo Gabba Gabba! producer Puny Entertainment and voiced by comics Aidy Bryant and Eric Knobel.

Amazon also greenlit a pilot for Eddie of the Realms Eternal, animated by Oscar-winning studio Cartoon Saloon; Everstar, created by Becky Tinker; and Yoyotoki HappyEars!, created by Niki Yang.

All six pilots will debut later this year on Amazon Video in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan. The pilot slate will also be available via the Amazon Video app for TVs, online and mobile devices.
