We Bare Bears
Starting off with the first cartoon, we have the show called, We Bare Bears. It is a cartoon about three bear brothers who live together as different types of bears. One is a grizzly bear, another is a panda, and the last one is a polar bear.

The show was created by Daniel Chong, and is a huge hit. It is a very calming show, while still being able to make the audience laugh.

Miraculous Ladybug
Another show that you may be of interest is Miraculous Ladybug. This show is about two superheroes named Ladybug and Cat Noir. They aren’t always superheroes though. They are normal citizens throughout the day, unless they need to change in their suits when it comes to fighting off evil.

Julieann, an 7th grader from Edgewood states, “My favorite part of this show is the fact that it’s set in France. You never really see cartoons set in those types of places.”

This show was made by Jeremy Zag, and was originally set in the French language. The show that comes up in the U.S is overdubbed with English. It was going to be styled as an anime, but instead they went with 3D modeling. The show came to Netflix in 2016, and the fourth season is set to come in 2021.

After reading this article, I hope you consider checking these cartoons out on Netflix.
