As a parent, I’m often disappointed with the lack of shows that we can all watch together as a family. Might I suggest putting together a few “Special Event Crossover” episodes that combine my favorites with those of my children? The following are some suggestions to get you started.

The Max and Ruby Theory
Four highly intelligent scientists sit around an apartment eating takeout, trying to figure out what the deal is with Ruby. The show lasts for a record ten seasons because no one gets anywhere.

Dora’s Scandal

Dora lands a coveted job exploring the problems of the White House. Once her Backpack gets security clearance, she meets with Cyrus and the President in the Oval Office daily to discuss B6-13, a covert operation run by a man named Swiper. Once in a while, the First Lady and Diego try to meddle in their business.

The Real Housewives of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
Minnie Mouse is happily the OG of the MMC; that is until Daisy starts trying to take control and work her way to the top of the social hierarchy of the clubhouse. When Daisy throws a party for Mickey and “forgets” to invite Minnie, Andy Cohen is called in to save the day.

Doc McStuffin’s Anatomy
Doc is a no nonsense toy doctor who starts a prestigious internship at the Doc Mobile Hospital in Seattle. Even distractions from McChilly and McStuffy can’t deter Doc from saving every doll in sight. And when trouble strikes, she turns to her Person, Lambie.

Breaking Team Umizoomi

Team Umizoomi is in over their heads when they become friends with some not so nice Bots. Also look out for the critically acclaimed spinoff: Better Call Milli.

Sesame Girls
Four friends try to navigate life in their twenties while also struggling to make rent living on the hip Sesame Street. It doesn’t take long for Hannah to realize the only person who really understands what she’s going through is Oscar the Grouch.

Curb Your Daniel Tiger
A curmudgeonly man keeps getting into trouble with his neighbors after constantly taking his tiger for walks without curbing him. Hilarity ensues.

Game of Wonder Pets
Linny, Tuck and Ming-Ming fight for control of the preschool classroom that they live in. In the end, only one can survive. And it’s not going to be Ming Ming.
