The Top Ten Cartoons on Netflix Right Now

Are your kids driving you batty with this snowy weather? Can you just not take one more day of winter vacation? Is the TV line up not cutting it today? Well time to fire up your favorite Netflix hub (Xbox, Wii, PS3, computer, tablet, smartphone, Apple TV, etc.--I bet you were wondering just how many ways of getting Netflix I could name!) and entertain your kids with the click of a button!

Head on over to my page to see what I deem to be the current Top Ten best cartoons I found waiting on Netflix right now. Thank me later.

DVD Review: Monsuno

Monsuno is an anime action show that airs on the Nicktoons channel. Until this DVD, I'd never watched it myself, and I have to say, I probably won't after this either (good thing I have a lot of nephews to give DVDs to!). For some reason, this one didn't hook me like Kaijudo did.

Anyhow, head on over to my page to read more about it and find out why it's not my favorite kids action cartoon. However, in doing some research, I was in fact impressed with the game that goes along with the cartoon. No boring cards here! You actually get a cute little core with a mini Monsuno critter inside! Not too shabby for a card game!

Degrassi: Las Vegas SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK

Image courtesy Teen Nick (c).
I don't normally post about shows on Teen Nick, but I'm a HUGE Degrassi fan myself*, so this one gets an exception. If you've been keeping up this season, you'll already know that drop-out Drew has asked Bianca to marry him, and after the fundraiser for the school, he scored tickets to Vegas to push their wedding up sooner because his mother Audra is not being supportive. Adam, Imogen, and Fiona tag along as the wedding party and planners. Meanwhile, Katie, Marisol, Mo, and Jake are headed to Mexico for Spring Break.

The hour-long "Degrassi: Las Vegas" special will air this Friday, December 14th at 9pm Eastern on Teen Nick channel. (And yes, you'd better believe I have my DVR set for it!) BUT! As a special treat for my readers, you get two very special Sneak Peeks of the episode right here at The TV Mom, thanks to my friends at Teen Nick!

*Disclaimer: Yes, I'm almost thirty and I still watch Degrassi religiously. So sue me. I've been watching it since the mid-90's when Teen Nick was still "The N" and Drake was still Jimmy BEFORE he was shot. Yeah, I'm hardcore.

Disney's Prep and Landing on Blu-Ray

It's that time of year again. Time for the holidays to barf all over the airwaves! But maybe you're not a Grinch like me and you enjoy that sort of thing. If that's the case, then you'll probably want to snag a copy of Disney's Prep and Landing "Totally Tinsel Collection" on Blu-Ray combo pack, out new this year. It's chock full of Elven goodness!
