During the glory days (in our opinion) of animation, you had to wait until Saturday morning to get your fill of cartoon fun. Now, tech-savvy kids have access to what seems like an unlimited number of shows, and—luckily for you—the cult-favorites are available too. From wascally wabbits to Thundercats, Ho!, here are nine classic cartoon series perfect for streaming with your little people.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
If you were a kid in the early '80s and watched the short-lived but super-popular series, then you were probably the proud owner of the entire Mattel line: He-Man, Skeletor, Man-at-Arms, Battle Cat, The Sorceress, Beast Man, Orko and more. As a parent, you can now appreciate the positive messaging that shines in every episode, while the kid inside will happily re-live all 66 episodes of good versus evil on the planet Eternia. Don’t forget to don your imaginary power sword and declare “By the power of Greyskull!”
Ages 7 & up.
Available on Hulu.com, free with subscription.
