As the year winds down, it’s time to look back at Netflix’s biggest hits, and today, we begin by looking into what kids’ TV shows picked up the most points in the Netflix top 10s over the past 12 months. 

This list is compiled using FlixPatrol data collected from the daily top 10s on Netflix from over 80 countries around the globe. They assign points and values to each title that gets featured on any day. Their data isn’t perfect as their method doesn’t quite fully capture the complexity of viewership data, such as total watch time, repeat viewings, or demographic details of the audience. Also worth noting is that Netflix changed up its top 10 metrics midway through the year to favor views over pure viewing hours. That said, their data provides a pretty accurate snapshot of what performed best over a long period.

Note: Data reflects kids shows top 10 points between January 1st and December 26th, 2023.

CoComelon – Picture: MoonBug Pictures

Let’s begin by looking at the global list of most popular kids’ titles this year. The two clear winners are CoComelon and Peppa Pig, which picked up over 30,000 points each. The latter isn’t quite available globally yet either, but its performance globally makes it clear why Netflix has gone out of its way to license the show in the US starting January 1st, 2024.

The key takeaway is that animation dominates children’s programming, with close to 80% of the most popular global titles being animated. Documentaries are the next most popular, followed by live-action titles. This will very much apply to kids’ movies, too, as we’ll come onto another article before the end of the year.
