Dreamworks Dawn of the Croods on Netflix

So much good stuff to watch this time of the year. The favorites like The Search for Santa Paws and The Legend of Frosty the Snowman are still available to stream!

One thing our house is excited about is to watch the all new series The Dawn of the Croods, which debuts on December 24th! We caught the first two episodes at a screening recently – it’s even funnier than the original movie.
