It’s funny watching tv with my daughters and seeing that many of the shows they enjoy watching are shows I grew up watching too. My Little Pony, The Smurfs, Scooby-Doo? Yup, all childhood favs of mine as a kid of the 80’s. It’s pretty fun to watch these shows and see their reactions to shows I loved when I was little.
Upcoming shows like the new Netflix original series Popples and The Magic School Bus will offer parents and their children even more to bond over. Not only are old-school classics more popular than ever, but these reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of the beloved characters we grew up with.
Netflix has compiled a list of must-watch throwbacks available on Netflix and I see some of my favourites listed!
This isn’t the full list though! Look for Carebears, Curious George, Tom and Jerry, Thomas the Tank Engine, Pingu, Jem and the Holograms, Transformers and more! Seriously, it’s impressive the number of cartoons from my childhood or spin offs that I’ve found on Netflix to watch with the girls!
Retro and retro inspired shows are fun, but sometimes we all want something new to take in. Check out these great new series perfect for kids and family to watch available on netlfix (soon)!
