List Rules
Vote up the best shows for kids and families that premiered their first season on a streaming network on or after January 1, 2019.

The past few years have had a wealth of great new kids shows and family favorite series. Moving beyond the world of Saturday morning programming, streaming services offer exactly what kids and families want to watch, when they want to watch it. Many services like Disney+, Hulu, and Netflix offer huge libraries with options for all ages. Other great family shows can be found on other streamers, with full catalogs from Sesame Street on HBO Max and Snoopy and Peanuts on Apple TV+. From new kid's cartoons to live-action shows for the whole family, there's something for everyone. With so many shows out there, it's hard to find what to watch so this list of the best new kids and family shows is ranked by your votes.

Family sitcoms that everyone in the house can enjoy, like iCarly and The Babysitter's Club, let you bond over laughter. Monsters at Work, The Snoopy Show, and City of Ghosts have sweet stories for smaller folks. For older kids who don't mind things a little scary or intense, series like The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance or Wizards: Tales of Arcadia offer fabulous fantasy and thrilling stories. The best kids shows recently aren't all scripted. Educational shows and kid's reality series like Emily's Wonder Lab, Be Our Chef, and Karma teach everything from cooking skills to the power of teamwork in the real world. Kids can even see their favorite books, like Captain Underpants or Zen Shorts, in the form of cartoons, while parents can enjoy the updated versions of favorites from when they were kids in shows like Jellystone! and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Whatever age the kids in your life (or your heart) are, there are new kids and family shows that will become the series they're nostalgic for when they're grown up. Vote up the best recent family series and kids shows, and see where your favorites rank.
