Lockdown watchlist: Five cartoon shows for kids that adults will also love on Prime, Disney+ Hostar and Netflix
- Cartoons for kids can leave adults wanting for more and not every 'adult cartoon' is something you can watch with you kids.
- During the lockdown, cartoons that are meant for all ages can be a real boon for the whole family.
- Here's a list of cartoons that kids will love while also keeping adults entertained.
Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s good to have a list of animated shows handy to pass the time that your kids can watch — which also won’t bore you to death for a good hit of humour without the drama and stress.

Let me kick things off by saying that this list doesn’t include the usual suspects like Doraemon, Tom and Jerry, Shinchan or Chota Bheem. These are shows that you probably haven’t heard of to help add a little bit of spice to an otherwise mundane lockdown.

- IMDb: 8.9/10

With two teenagers in the mix, you would think it’s a coming of age series — which it is, but only mildly so. Each episode focuses on getting to the bottom of a conspiracy or finding reasons why things are going wrong.

2. Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Disney+ Hotstar
- IMDb: 8.1/10

What connects all three is that they’re based in the quaint little town of Arcadia Oaks. Teenage heroes and supernatural creatures alike fight for their town’s survival against the evils that, in some cases quite literally, lurk in the shadows.
