Find them in On Demand > Kids

Whether it’s comically useless lions, mystical fairy princesses, charming cartoons or familiar favourites that get your kids going, there’s a Box Set for every taste coming to Virgin TV On Demand this August.


So, without further ado, here’s the lowdown on what to watch this summer…



Find Leon in On Demand > Box Sets > Kids

If a little voice by your knees has ever asked what lions would be like if they were useless, then look no further than this brand new show! While lions, to many, are seen as the fearsome predators, this hilarious animated series says otherwise. And with over 50 brand new episodes to sink their teeth into, it’s a sure bet to get the little ones firmly rooted to the sofa!


The Other Kingdom

This spellbinding new series from Nickelodeon will have any aspiring fairies jumping for joy. Astral is a fairy princess who’s always aspired to live with humans – and now she finally has her chance! Of course, there are lessons to be learnt; by posing as an exchange student, she soon finds that fitting in is hard… especially when you’re a fairy.


Daisy & Ollie

As we’re all too aware, children are packed full of intriguing questions about the world around them. Luckily for them (and you!), this new, beautifully animated cartoon endeavours to answer them. Through gorgeous visuals and a fantastic cast, the comedic element of children’s fantastically silly questions is brilliantly brought to life.


Regular Show

In a similar vein to Adventure Time, this madcap comedy will have children both big and small clutching their bellies as they watch the surreal misadventures of friends Rigby (a raccoon) and Mordecai (a blue jay). With new episodes added this month, the distinctive duo work alongside a host of amusingly named characters such as Pops, Skips, Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost and more to solve reasonably simple problems with hilarious consequences.


Horrid Henry

He’s the boy that children love and grown-ups hate. Based on the bestselling series of books, this classic animated series never fails to shock, disgust, and have kids belting the sofa with laughter. Let’s just hope it doesn’t give them any ideas…


Peppa Pig
