9. A StoryBots Christmas (2017)

A StoryBots Christmas is a fantastic animated holiday special for children streaming on Netflix based on original characters from the popular digital education franchise known as StoryBots and the television series StoryBots Super Songs and Ask the StoryBots. The JibJab produced special came out as an exclusive from subscribers of the service on December 17, 2017, to much success. The holiday-themed endeavor landed six highly-coveted nominations at the 45th Daytime Emmy Awards taking home two honors, including the award for Outstanding Special Class Animated program, making it an ideal choice for everyone this season.

Featuring the voice talents of Judy Greer and Ed Asner, A StoryBots Christmas tells the holiday tale of how Bo mistakenly thinks that her StoryBot friends are not fans of the gifts she gave them for the special occasions and heads up to see Santa Clause at the North Pole in hopes of making presents her pals actually enjoy. Along the way on her journey, she learns that Christmas is much more than just presents, and by the end, the true meaning of it all hits home for everyone, including those watching at home. The Netflix original’s meaningful lesson and stellar soundtrack are just some of the many reasons why this Yuletide affair from the popular educationally entertaining franchise is one not to miss.
