I Need A List of Family Entertainment

I’d like your help on something: I’m looking for television shows or movies that are suitable for children. In other words, I don’t want war, death, trauma, or bloody heroes. Rather, I want images of loving families, habits of success, and growth… shows that edify.

Finding such shows has proved difficult for me. Even “wholesome” shows like Little House on The Prairie have a lot of episodes that I find far too dark and tragic for younger children. Too dark and tragic for me, to be honest about it.

So, wadda ya got? I’m open to anything and everything that works. Thanks!

  1. I recently watched The Shack with my kids. It’s based off Mitch Albom’s book. Amazing insights.

  2. Hi Paul,

    This is a great question! And I’d love to see the list once you’ve compiled it. We have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. One show that has been good for us is Daniel Tiger, which you’ve probably heard of already. If you haven’t, it’s a Mr. Rogers spin off. It’s animated and follows Daniel Tiger, formerly a puppet of Mr. Rogers, and Daniel’s family. They are loving, and the show is meant to help kids understand their emotions. It can be found on PBS Kids or Amazon Prime.

    I hope this helps,
    Austin

    1. Aloha Paul, (and Anonymous) …
      Inspiring post!
      Anonymous, wonderful selection – – “Sound Of Music!”
      Adding to that particular one, the only “wholesome” that springs to mind, is
      The Waltons, and because as this 3D-matrix / Babylon’s layers all being now exposed and we have new eyes to see the Lucifer’s deception in all media – – hoping The Walton’s might offer some goodness not colored too much/ tainted by too much “darkness.”
      Moreover, blessings to you Paul and to all your wonderful community here!
      🙏🙏🙏

  3. Paul,
    I’m sure there are some great shows being produced today, but they will be hard to find, because they will NOT fit in with the current popular culture. I have never been much of a TV or movie viewer, as I would generally much rather read than view.
    Having said that, I would guess than any Disney movie made before 2000 is probably at least OK, and some of them are excellent. For adolescents, I would also recommend “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Chariots of Fire”. Both have some dark moments, but the main characters display moral courage in confronting these challenges.
    I realize that there are MANY others that are also good. Despite his later reputation, I found the Cosby Show to be an entertaining and constructive show back in the 80’s.
    But in general, better to teach our children to read and keep TV time to a minimum, at least in the opinion of this old fogey.

  4. Check parentstv dot org. They send out a newsletter with reviews and lists of family friendly viewing.

    I like where you’re going with this. I wrote a review about the Thomas Pikkety movie, Capital, titled “Who Chose the Dystopian Future”…

    …It(the movie) was rich with images and video from the historical archives of the past two centuries. Much of it, from my lifetime, the 50’s through today. Of course, there were also images from before my lifetime, such as Nazi Germany and other wars, strikes, and living conditions of the industrial age and feudalism.

    So, I woke up this morning thinking about some of those images. In particular, the ones with the huddled, impoverished masses of future Los Angeles, waiting to get on a bus while the loading is being supervised by robots. The robots are similar to the ones you’ve seen in news reports of Boston Dynamics’ inventions, funded by our tax dollars, to not only intimidate and perhaps injure or kill our “enemies” but as we see in the film, us.

    It occurs to me, that in my lifetime, we’ve seen so much dystopian media; movies, news, books, TV shows, etc. Much of it comes under the guise of science fiction – the fruitful imaginations that have produced Star Trek, Star Wars, Avatar, Handmaid’s Tale and of course 1984 and Brave New World.

    And yet, our universities, military, technology and industrial manufacturers pour our tax dollars and investments into re-creating everything we’ve seen in science fiction – even though we see that it will be used against us. Who is “us”? The lower and middle classes according to Piketty. Why do they not invest the resources into a better future?

    And, why has the media, and most importantly, Hollywood, bet all their treasure on producing a dystopian future? Are we being conditioned? Pre-programmed, as some have asserted, to accept this as inevitable? As desirable for some?

    And, is there not a writer, a producer or a director, who has a utopian vision? Even for “entertainment” purposes? Is there no value in creating scenarios for a better world? And, if so, why not? Who is served by dystopia? Qui bono? Wall Street? FIRE industries? Military Intelligence? Foreign countries or entities wishing to destroy America?

  5. Games come to mind first. Depending on age, Chutes and ladders, Candyland, Monopoly, Parcheesi are all great family games.

    Card games like UNO, Fish, Old Maid generally go over well, too.

    Pickup sticks is a wonderful “old school” family game, and builds fine motor skills and strategic thinking as well.

    Many different games with marbles can be found on the internet. Jacks, for some reason, have usually attracted more girls than boys.

    And Hoyle’s Rules of Games (and a number of modern updates) provides an amazing list of games played with a normal deck of playing cards.

    Note that none of these are “sit and watch the tube” type games. Most are played around a table, while some (marbles and jacks, in particular) are generally played outdoors.

    But all very much qualify as family entertainment.

  6. What about old shows from the 60’s and 70’s? Brady Bunch, Courtship of Eddie’s Father, Captain Kangaroo, … etc. Some of the old Disney movies like Bedknobs and Broomsticks are still worth seeing.

  7. There is a show from Canada called Heartland. It now has 15 seasons and is a series about a family that has a ranch in Alberta, modern day. The grand daughter is a ‘horse whisperer’, as it were. Very family orientated and gorgeous scenery. Many lessons on helping others and animals. A refreshing show in these times when it is almost impossible to find solid family viewing.

  8. Where The Lillies Bloom is a nice movie based on a novel
    The Waltons is a nice series about family and values.

  9. Bankruptcy of Little Jack – story about young school boy who have idea to run small store after hours. He finds other schoolmates who like that idea and they start it. After fast success store goes bankrupt because of bad decisions and some of the shareholders wanted “easy money” and started stealing inventory. Jack has dilema to cheat the rest of shareholders, take what left and run away. Instead he chooses to stay and talk to creditors and explain why bussiness failed. He gets a big trust from the adults/creditors who restructure kids’ debts and give them even more stuff to sell and improve their’s bussiness plan. Store grows so big that they can now support their poor parents.

  10. There is a 2005 movie called Dreamer that is good. The story revolves around a young girl (Dakota Fanning) and her thoroughbred horse who she nurses back to health to race. Weaves in family relationships across multiple generations, shows the rewards of persistence and faith; and it is very well cast. It is not just a “feel good” movie but rather is practical and positive. It received nominations for Best Family Film at the time it was released and my two boys (who were 8 and 6 at the time) really enjoyed it because they loved horses at that age. I suspect young girls would also relate to Dakota Fanning’s character who is certainly the star of the movie. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamer_(2005_film)

  11. The documentary “Sweetgrass” is not only family friendly, but also dog friendly. Our Golden Retriever watched it several times.

    The IMDB synopsis:
    “There is no plot, per se in this film. It is a “pure” documentary; i.e., insofar as the filmmakers can accomplish it, they have made the viewers non-participating observers on an actual sheep drive. Everything that happens in the film is unmodified by information, explanation, interviews or artificial soundtrack. Characters are a huge herd of sheep; relatively few drivers on horseback; pack mules; herding dogs. Together we are coping with dense forests; rocky terrain; harsh weather; unmarked territory; wildlife predators; fatigue — all while managing the necessary supplies for sustaining a group on the move in the wilderness for several months. Formidable obstacles and concomitant frustrations are at times overwhelming, even for these experienced, stoic range riders. True to their natures and heritage, they persevere to the end of the drive, as has been the case since the 1800’s.”

  12. Really depends on ages. Check IMDB for the “Parent guide”
    WALL-E
    Toy Story
    Wreck-it Ralph
    Inside Out

    All good messages / doing the right thing.

    All of these are tolerable/enjoyable for adults too.

  13. My daughter is nearly 6 and I am Waldorf homeschooling her. So I’m including a book list also 🙂 all our media (book and film) is enjoyable for me as well as her, and I pay careful attention to how characters treat each other – no attitude or snark here, and we prefer stories that place emphasis on imagination and nature.

    My daughter and I are in love with Sarah & Duck – a whimsical, sweet, imaginative, calm show about a homeschooled (seemingly unschooled!) English girl and her pet duck. There is a subtle underlying message that nature, imagination, and connection are superior to computer games etc. The characters treat each other nicely and you get the sense that all the adults in Sarah’s small village are looking out for her. It is supposed to be aimed at preschoolers, but my daughter is nearly 6 and still loves it, and I am one of an apparently decent-sized adult following of the show as well – I’ll happily watch without her!

    Shows like Puffin Rock, Tumble Leaf, etc, have similar qualities of whimsicality, sweetness, slow/non-overstimulating, and placing emphasis on imagination and nature play. We also enjoy the vintage Tales of Peter Rabbit, plus Madeline, The Gruffalo and other Julia Donaldson adaptations, etc. I approve of anything with Julie Andrews as a general rule.

    I saw another commenter mention Wreck-it Ralph. I did not let my daughter watch past the first ten minutes or so – I’m very careful about how characters treat each other, and I was not comfortable with that movie. I also found it hyper stimulating which is a no in our Waldorf home.

    For books (which we always prefer over shows, and consume a lot more of them!) we love:
    Julia Donaldson’s work (including Gruffalo, Stick Man, Room on the Broom etc)
    Peter Rabbit
    Brambly Hedge (think Peter Rabbit several decades later)
    Ulf Stark (darling picture books published through IKEA – many set with talking animals in the northern wilderness)
    Winnie-the-Pooh (the original Milne stories)
    Paddington bear (the book is dear and I don’t recall it having the dastardly taxidermist from the movie remake)
    The adventures of Madeline

  14. Hi Paul,

    I put this request onto Gary North’s forum, and I hope that some of them answered above, but there was also this:

    “Film that made a big impression on me as a child: themes of loyalty, devotion, steadfastness: Greyfriars Bobby: The True Story of A Dog (1961)

    A contemporary version with the same message: Hachi: A Dog’s Tale (2009)

    No trace of depravity, wokeness or cynicism. Perhaps because they focussed on the actions of animals rather than humans”

    And, at the risk of offending the late Gary North, his family, friends or followers (as well as those who don’t like long comments), I have also copied this from inside his forum:

    Scientific Biographies

    “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all thing have been created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:16–17).

    Dr. Ehrlich’s Magic Bullet (1940)

    The story of Paul Ehrlich, a German Jewish scientist who developed chemical compounds to fight diseases. The use of chemotherapy can be traced back to the experiments done by Paul Ehrlich and his staff of scientists. He especially wanted to find a cure for syphilis. Through many tedious experiments, the arsenic-based compound Salvarsan was found to be effective against the disease. It was used for 40 years until penicillin was discovered. The movie downplays that syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease. Ehrlich received a Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1907. A wonderfully acted movie starring Edward G. Robinson, Ruth Gordon, and Donald Crisp.

    Young Tom Edison (1940)

    This is a great movie for kids. Mickey Rooney plays young Tom in Huck Finn fashion. Almost from the beginning the young Edison boy is getting in trouble at school and in the neighborhood. He was labeled as “addled” by his teacher. If he were a modern child, he would be diagnosed as being ADD or ADHD, given Ritilin, and told to sit down and behave. Edison was schooled at home, learned Morse Code at a young age, and went on to patent more than 1000 inventions, everything from the light bulb to the phonograph. This is a great movie to show to budding scientists. There’s enough humor and good feeling in it to keep today’s jaded pre-teens interested, even if it is in black and white. As with a lot of these bio-pics, there are some fictional elements. The final scene, while exciting, never happened. There are a number of fine biographies on Edison.

    Edison the Man (1940)

    After the success of Young Tom Edison, MGM decided on doing a sequel. It’s every bit as good as its predecessor but not as kid friendly. Even so, it’s an inspiring story of how a maverick inventor changed the world. It shows a mature Edison, not as a scientist, but as a visionary. He solved problems. He developed items with the consumer in mind. The centerpiece of the movie is the development of a long-burning electric light. A less persistent man might have given up after trying a few hundred substances to find the right filament. But Edison had scoured the globe looking for the best one. He tested more than 9000 substances. When one of his colleagues says, “We’re as sorry as you are that you didn’t get results,” Edison replies, “Results? Man, I got a lot of results. I now know 9000 things that won’t work.” When Edison developed the electric light, keep in mind that people were still lighting their homes with natural gas. He had a product with no market. There was no power company, utility poles, wires to carry electricity, outlets in homes, electric fixtures to hold the newfangled invention, or a way to mass produce it. Then there was the natural gas industry that saw their business fortunes in jeopardy if the electric light ever caught on. The final scene of lighting a street in New York City gives you some idea of the obstacles that Edison had to overcome to make his invention a reality and not just a novelty. Consider that the electric light has not changed much since it was invented in 1879. Even its shape is similar, except for the glass-blown curl at the top. Spencer Tracy does a fine job playing Edison, quirks and all, even his penchant for taking short naps throughout the day. As with many of these movies done in the 1930s and 1940s, there is a wonderful array of character actors. Gene Lockhart from A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street, and The Story of Alexander Graham Bell, is the bearded Mr. Taggart.

    If you’ve seen It’s a Wonderful Life, you’ll recognize Henry Travers who played the angel Clarence. Here’s a bit of trivia that only a few people will know. True fans of Rocky and Bullwinkle might be able to spot Jay Ward in the opening scene interviewing the elderly Edison (Tracy). Ward went on to bigger and better things by creating Rocky and Bullwinkle, Fractured Fairy Tales, George of the Jungle, Dudley Do-right, and a whole lot more.

    The Story of Alexander Graham Bell (1939)

    Could Alexander Graham Bell ever have imagined what his invention would bring–from a cumbersome and obtrusive device made from wood and metal to a cell phone not needing wires that fits in a shirt pocket? Bell was a Scottish inventor whose early interest was in helping the deaf. He was an expert in elocution and the science of speech. Even after inventing the telephone, Bell continued to work with the deaf. He met with a six-year-old Helen Keller and her distraught father in 1887. It was through this meeting that Annie Sullivan came to Tuscumbia, Alabama, to work with Helen. This film presents Bell’s early work with the deaf, and his experimentation with the telephone built on concepts perfected in the telegraph. If dots and dashes could be transmitted electronically, then why not speech? It was a logical inference. Of course, you will always find a personal touch, in this case, a loyal wife who saves a love note written on a back of a scrap of paper that saves the day in court. Pure fiction, but a nice touch. The court scene is important, however, since at the same time Bell was working on his phone, Elisha Gray developed his own independent design. A patent dispute arose, but in the end, it was determined that Bell was first and was granted exclusive patent rights. Patent Number 174,465 has been described as one of the most valuable patents ever issued. Don Ameche, who plays Bell, had a long film career spanning nearly 60 years. He played one of the Duke brothers in the Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd comedy classic Trading Places. He received an Academy Award in 1985 for Cocoon.

    Madame Curie (1944)

    Curie was a native of Poland, living in France, a scientist, and a woman. She was the first woman to receive a Ph.D. in France, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, and the first woman to receive two Nobel Prizes. These were significant accomplishments for anyone, but for a woman to accomplish in a time when men dominated the field of science, they are extraordinary accomplishments. It was Pierre and Marie Curie’s isolation of radium that led to breakthroughs in medical research, a field Marie dedicated her life to after the tragic death of her husband in 1906. At the Nobel Prize award ceremony, the president of the Swedish Academy referred in his speech to the old proverb: “union gives strength.” He went on to quote from the Book of Genesis, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” The Curies had a wonderful partnership, both in work and family. But it was their work with these radioactive materials that made them world renowned scientists. But with all their scientific acumen, they were careless when it came to handling the radioactive material they had discovered. If you went to the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and wanted to study the three black notebooks in which they recorded their work on radium, you would have to sign a certificate stating that you know the risks involved. The books won’t be safe to handle for another 1600 years. They are radioactive. Greer Garson does an excellent job in the role of Marie Curie. Walter Pidgeon partners with her character as Pierre Curie. The movie is based on the book written by the Curies’ daughter. The movie is balanced between the Curies’ family life and their work as dedicated scientists. This is an inspiring story, but it’s especially good to see a woman accomplish so much in a time when women had few opportunities in science.

    The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936)

    Louis Pasteur solved the mysteries of rabies, anthrax, chicken cholera, and silkworm diseases, and contributed to the development of the first vaccines. He debunked the widely accepted myth of spontaneous generation, thereby setting the stage for modern biology and biochemistry. He described the scientific basis for fermentation, wine-making, and the brewing of beer. This might seem trivial in our day, but it was fermentation, a point made by Robert Boyle hundreds of years before, that would lead to Pasteur to make an astounding leap in scientific logic: If germs were the cause of fermentation, they might also be the cause of contagious diseases. Like so many scientific innovators who questioned long-held scientific theories, Pasteur faced opposition from many of his fellow scientists. While the debate over whether the earth revolved around the sun or the sun around the earth was an important scientific discovery, a belief one way or another did not affect a person’s health. Refusing to heed Pasteur’s warnings about how bacteria caused disease meant that doctors were inadvertently killing their own patients. Patients often died at the hands of doctors because they would not take the simple precaution of washing their hands and sterilizing their medical instruments.

    The Magic Box (1951)

    William Friese-Greene (1855–1921) was a British photographer and inventor who has been credited by some with the invention of motion pictures, although this is disputed by other film historians. Of course, this is not unusual. The same happened with the Wright Brothers and Samuel P. Langley, and as we saw with Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray. This rarely broadcasted movie depicts Friese-Greene’s struggle to construct a working camera and projector. Some have described the movie, based on the book by Ray Allister, as highly inaccurate. Greene, who added his wife’s surname to his own, began his quest for the development of moving pictures after seeing a seven-slide “Magic Lantern” projector give the illusion of movement on a screen. For his efforts he secured a patent in 1889. Unfortunately, the camera was not capable of taking pictures at a rate that suggested animation, although the movie depicts him actually producing a short live-action feature. Since no record exists of his cinematographic work, the credit for a successful cinematographic device belongs to Thomas Edison. It’s this type of movie that can be used for research purposes. What is the real story behind men and women and their inventions? Young people can develop good critical thinking skills by researching obscure but (to me, anyway) interesting topics.
