Figuring out the best TV shows for 8-year-olds to watch can be complicated. Right at the cusp of being a tween, they know when a show is pandering to little kids, but that doesn't mean they're ready for deeper or darker themes. If you’ve been looking for good shows for 8-year-olds, this list of the best television series appropriate for kids who are eight will help find the right balance of fun to watch, age-appropriate and educational shows for 8-year-olds.

Just because a kid is now officially a tween doesn’t mean they are automatically ready to watch shows for teens and older kids. The best shows for eight-year-olds to watch offer more complex stories that have lots of rewatch value as they get older such as Avatar: Legend of Kora, Trollhunters, and even Star Wars Rebels. Some educational shows for 8-year-olds even feature kids close to their age, thanks to shows like MythBusters Jr. and Project MC2.
