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.
Go, go Speed Racer! This '60s era Japanese show was a mega-hit when it first aired on MTV in 1990. The sleek-but-retro look of teenager Speed, as he races for prize money and fends off villains in his father’s high-tech racecar, the Mach 5, still engages kids of all ages who love things that go “vrooom!” and the dubbed anime-style animation is classic.
Ages 6 & up.
Available on hulu.com, free with subscription.
