The Unexpected Bonus of Netflix Instant Streaming
Via: Toon Nation.net
While I was vaguely aware that Netflix has a fairly comprehensive repertoire of animated films and TV shows, I’d never actually spent the time to go through and see what was there. That’s all changed thank to the Roku box we got for Christmas, which has spurred me to take a deeper look at what can and cannot be watched, animation-wise, on Netflix.
While there are the usual suspects on there: plenty of anime, the latest blockbusters, there are also plenty of hidden gems. For example there are some of Don Bluth’s classics in there, some old-school DreamWorks before they switched to a CGI-only studio, independent stuff like Mary & Max and even some of Ralph Bakshi’s more (in)famous works.
It’s safe to say that I have my work cut out for me over the next couple of months as I wade through all the classics and non-classics alike in the all -you-can-eat buffet that is Netflix. Such availability will only prove beneficial to these films as they gain a wider exposure through Netflix than they ever could have on DVD.
So what are you waiting for, Netflix normally offer a free trial of some sort, so head on over now and check it out. You’ve nothing to lose by doing so,
