There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with your kids over something you loved when you were young. It offers kids a glimpse into what you were like as a kid yourself and gives you a way to relive your childhood.
As it turns out, cartoons such as the new Netflix original series Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse are giving parents and their kids loads to bond over. Not only are the old-school classics we all grew up on more popular than ever, but new reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of our most favorite characters.
Our list of must-watch throwbacks is below, but we want to hear what retro titles you’re most excited to pass down to your kids. Are there favorites you’ve already watched with the kids or any fun traditions you’ve started – like “Jedi training” (aka getting ready for bed) – to extend the fun of what you’ve watched together? We hear ideas for a #TBT post…
