Kids movies run the gamut, from animated films that are suitable for children of all ages to comedies and fantasies that might even be rated PG (but mom and dad say they’re OK). While there are tons of great new movies for kids, some of the old classics have staying power. Parents will love not only watching these beloved films with their kids, but also reliving their own childhoods as they remember the first time they sat in front of the tube, mesmerized by the stories.
If you’re looking for something to watch with the kids, or a great movie to put on for a kid’s party or kids movie night, check out this curated list of the best kids movies on Hulu right now. It’s a diverse mix of titles so you’re sure to find something your kids will love.
An oldie but a goodie, Ghostbusters has remained a favorite for generations thanks to its hilarious cast and fun premise that mixes ghosts and goblins with a team of average Joe heroes who save NYC by fighting them with their fancy machinery. While the movie has since spawned various other versions, the original 1984 film, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, is still the best.
The two also star in the film, which has been preserved by the National Film Registry, alongside Bill Murray as three eccentric parapsychologists who are convinced that ghosts exist and that they have figured out a watch to catch them. With one of the most recognizable movie theme songs of all time, Ghostbusters is rated PG for scares and some rough language, but it’s a rite of passage for any child to watch.
