Television programs created solely for the entertainment of children are themselves nothing new, but new and current series are created each and every year with some of the best having hit the airwaves as recently as 2017. Shows like those everyone grew up with are still being made fresh and new for children of a new generation with some of the best kids series coming from new, kid-focused studios and channels.

The best live-action shows for kids are easily some of the best series ever made for children, but there are hundreds of amazing programs in this genre to choose from.
