Latest additions to streaming service beefs up kids offerings

We've been huge fans of Netflix's video streaming. But the offerings for kids have been a bit thin. Some good movies like Ratatouille from Starz, and cartoons like Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry. But most of the series seem dated.

Now MTV Networks and its Nickelodeon channel have struck a deal to beef-up Netflix's contemporary fare, including Blues Clues and a favorite with our boys, SpongeBob SquarePants. Oh yeah, several seasons of South Park are coming, as well, but we'll do our best to keep those "foul-mouthed young boys" (as described on the Netflix blog) away from ours.
