40 Kid-Friendly TV Shows, Movies Now Free on Amazon Video

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Amazon Video made 40 kid-friendly TV shows and movies available for free with an Amazon account to cater to family audiences during COVID-19.

According to Variety:

By dropping the Prime Video paywall for the kids’ programming, Amazon is aiming to generate goodwill with parents looking for ways to keep their kids occupied during the Covid-19 emergency. The company also wants to encourage more people to sign up for the $119-per-year Prime program.

Many of the popular TV titles come from PBS programming.

Though much of the shows, including ARTHUR, contain family-friendly content, there are a few episodes that address more adult matters, such as homosexuality. Thus, Movieguide® cannot unilaterally recommend the series.

Amazon is partnering with IMDB TV for family-friendly movies too. Titles include:

SHREK FOREVER AFTER

RUGRATS GO WILD

MEGAMIND

THE ADVENTURES OF ELMO IN GROUCHLAND

LITTLE GIANTS

ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN

SURF’S UP

THE NUT JOB

STUART LITTLE

FREE WILLY

RV

THE SMURFS

Even when promoted as kid-friendly, Movieguide® still encourages parents to look at reviews for titles that pique their interest.
