Cool Netflix Instant Picks: Movies & TV Shows

Javi here. So two weeks in a row you have been getting awesome recommendations by me. This week's column has a theme with just focusing on kids/animation stuff. It's either nostalgia picks, or stuff that I'm probably too old to watch, either way enjoy!

Proof that even nowadays, Disney (not Disney-Pixar) can create something worthwhile. PHINEAS AND FERB is a fun cartoon series that harkens back to shows where the story arc is exactly the same but the situations are different. Think of it like a funnier SCOOBY DOO. The show has great songs and the imagination that the kids display reminds me of that summer my best friend Aaron and I tried to build a life-size AT-AT with scrap metal.

I have not seen this movie in ages. The Spanish-dubbed version of this movie was one of my absolute favorites when I was growing up back in the old country (aka Mexico). I remember I loved the music, and I loved the fact that it wasn't just some Disney princess-centric movie. I'll be rewatching it this weekend to see
how it holds up, but I bet it's still pretty great.
Seriously, where else can you go for your dose of psychedelia, important life lessons, and guest appearances by Elijah Wood,  ?uestlove, and The Flaming Lips? Only with Yo Gabba Gabba!

So that's it for this week's selection for Netflix, next week Jonesy will be back with some of the equally nerdy she's watching. I bet it's some dance movie.
