Just in case you didn’t know I have a son who’s turning 5 later this year, and since we have fully reverted to watching TV through Netflix instead of the normal route of DStv, StarSat TV, OpenView and your normal analogue television.

So with this new environment, we had to find a way for him to continue watching cartoons he likes, however, Netflix doesn’t have most of the shows that you would normally find on Boomerang since that was his favourite channel on DStv.

After a couple of months of watching a couple of shows with him, I thought it would be nice of me to compile a list of shows he seems to enjoy on Netflix since I feel that we have some sort of basic things that he prefers over the other.


PJ Mask


Yeah, I might have my own dislikes about this show but it seems like he enjoys watching Owlet, Catboy and Geko rescue certain aspects of their neighbourhood in the middle of the night.



For some reason, I actually enjoy watching this show, it’s mainly about a crew of Dinotrux which are part Dinosaur part Machine and their Reptools which are part reptiles and part machines that go around defending their neighbourhood from D-Structs and his Reptool. There are also episodes about them maintaining the neighbourhood.


Oscar’s Oasis


This one is about an Oscar and who goes different types of adventures around a desert from finding water and trying to protecting himself against a band of misfits that seem to always be on his case.


Oggy and the Cockroaches

Oggy and the Cockroaches for me is more like Tom and Jerry as it’s about Oggy (a cat) who just wants to spend time watching television and eating, however, there is are these three cockroaches that just keep on pestering him and he has to defend the turf at times he is even assisted by his cousin Jack who tends to be short-tempered and very violent the same happens with Oggy’s neighbour Bob (Bulldog).


Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig is about a young pig Pig named Peppa and her little brother George as they go on everyday journeys with their family like going to the park to play and other every day like scenarios.

Zig & Sharko


Truly speaking me and my wife usually complain about the portrayal of the mermaid this show but besides that it’s about Zig and hyena who has only one obsession which is eat a mermaid that has set up house on the beach they are based on however she has what I might term as her bodyguard a shark named Sharko. 

When I’m not busy watching Anime, or normal cartoons I watch these things with Koena and for some reason, I actually love chilling and see him laugh and learn from these misadventures that regularly happen in these cartoons.
