Apple TV+’s new animated comedy Central Park has arrived and with it comes a stunning set of musical numbers performed by some of today’s biggest stars.

Co-created by Loren Bouchard (Bob’s Burgers), Josh Gad (Avenue 5) and Nora Smith (Bob’s Burgers), the series follows the Tillermans, a family living in the titular New York City park. There, patriarch Owen works as the park manager and his wife Paige is a journalist. Together they’re raising their kids, Molly and Cole, in the park — which is being threatened by hotel heiress Bitsy Brandenham, who hopes to build condos on the land with the help of her assistant, Helen.
