Default Sending out a series

Hi everyone!!
I hope all here are having a great day.

I have a 2 part question about a kid's series.

Firstly, I am working on a children's series and I have 3 episodes done but have not completed the rest of the episodes that would be for a season 1, but I do however have a "bible" of where the series/characters would be going.
My first question is this: If I were to send out a series to a prodco that deals in kids tv series then would it be prudent to send out what I already have or do they prefer that all the season's episodes be completed. In other words, do prodco's prefer a completed season (10-12 episodes) or will they accept 3 completed episodes with a bible included?

Next question.
I am writing this series to be done as a traditional puppet driven show (think Bear in the big blue house) where the characters are hand puppets with the main character being a person in a suit. But it could be done as an animation if someone preferred.
Should I mention this in my query? Or should I just send it out as a kids series and let them decide how it should look?

Thanks everyone for reading my questions and I look forward to any and all answers.
I hope everyone here is continuing to reach for their dreams and I hope you all make them come true.

The usual thing is to send out a pilot with a bible - no need to write any further episodes. Even the show bible isn't always necessary for an initial query/pitch.

Yep. Do it in steps.

Step 1: Query/call and win them over with your pitch of it, letting them know you have a pilot and bible (do not mention you have additional episodes written).

Step 2: If they request, ask if they'd like to read the pilot and bible both - send accordingly.

Step 3: If they love it, and want to chat or meet, then mention you've been "working" on a few more episodes of the series as well, if they want to check those out. But only after they've expressed their interest in working with you on this.
