Netflix, USA TODAY
If you love some kid classics, plus a little Halloween thrill, grab your remote and tune to Netflix this October.
In the realm of classic kid favorites, “Carmen Sandiego” is back for another season. Catch both “Rugrats” movies and both “Flintstones” movies for a throwback evening with your little ones. You’ll also definitely want to show them the classic “Karate Kid” when that hits the streaming platform.
For some spooooky thrills, catch the “Super Monsters” and “Captian Underpants” specials, or the second season of “Creeped Out’ for teens and tweens.
Or maybe just inspire them to follow their dreams with “Match! Tennis Juniors” or “Little Miss Sumo.”
Check out Netflix’s best family programming for October. Also, see the month’s entire list of Netflix offerings, which includes a hip-hop competition show featuring Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. (“Rhythm + Flow”) and a Steven Soderbergh film starring Meryl Streep (“The Laundromat”).
