    First they take half our movies and now they take our kids shows. Shame on you Netflix!!!

    P.S. Guilty of being a frazzeled mom as well and using the tv for a minute of peace.

      They remove things randomly and really don’t let you know. I wish they at least let ya know!Syrana

    I rely on Netflix more for my entertainment than the kiddos (still have cable and tons of DVDs), but I would be mad about this myself. I was so made this morning b/c the cable converter wasn’t working in the playroom and I was trying to fix it before my first cup of coffee. Luckily their tech support had a message about the outage.

    I too am a frazzled mom…we should form a club :)

      We should form a club :) A notice or message would be nice! We don’t have cable so this is one of our main sources of entertainment (besides DVDs). I wonder how many people have unsubscribed?Syrana

    I didn’t even realize Blue’s Clues was gone either. :(

    My hubby mentioned it over the weekend, before Netflix released the new season of Arrested Development, that we would go to Amazon after its release, lol. My biggest issue with exactly the user-friendly one. My toddler cannot navigate through the menu as easily as Netflix Kids…and sometimes I’m not in the mood to scroll through each title and ask “Do you want to watch (fill in her handful of favorite shows, minus the missing ones, of course)?” We may just grab the DVD’s of YGG! and stick with Netflix. Who knows, maybe there will be yet another streaming service available because of this SNAFU. And yes, total first world problem, but when it’s something that affects our children, you get an angry mom mob.

      One thing that’s irritating about DVDs for these shows is I can not find season sets. They are in themes with only a handful of episodes. Have you spotted full season sets anywhere?Syrana

    We gave up Netflix a few years ago because at that time, their streaming section was sorely lacking. It felt kind of like quantity (as many cheap shows as we can possibly push) over quantity. Sounds like they may have added to it only to take it away. Maybe like a loss leader at a grocery store – get you in, hoping you’ll stay & pay for the other stuff after the sale is over.

    We switched to Amazon which has a much larger selection. And Dora, Diego, Yo Gabba Gabba, Blue’s Clues – they’re all there (plus many more), and all free with Prime (which we would have, anyway, with as much as we shop there). Head over there so Rissa doesn’t have to cry! :D

      I need to start using Amazon’s streaming more. We definitely have Prime with as much as I shop on there! I understand that it is business but sometimes… well.. business sucks when you don’t think about your customers.Syrana

    My boyfriend brought the missing shows up to me. And those shows are EXACTLY what our son watches and what his grandmother can calm him down with when he throws a “I want my parents” fit. Thankfully we have most on DVD but it was much more convenient for his mother to flip on the Xbox and play them rather than us remember to bring a DVD over and take it home. Disappointed.artsavesyou

      A year ago YGG was really the only show Rissa paid any attention to. This would have been tougher for us then, but I know what you mean. I think a lot of parents are feeling this and it’s just so sucky! I mean, I’m glad she’s liking Jake and the Neverland Pirates but that’s one added show when they removed a huge selection.Syrana

    They totally bite. I also cannot show spongebob to my son anymore which caused a full blown meltdown! Seriously?? These all out business wars that companies are lodging against each other in the name of a dollar hurts our pocketbooks and our kids. I am waiting on my Direct TV contract to end. By the time they add on taxes fees, and whatever else my $59.99 package costs me over $150 a month. Apparently after the first honeymoon year, your rates are more because well, they hate you and have you by the balls. Tired of paying so much yet never having any tv to watch. I’m going to purchase Redbox streaming, hulu streaming and continue with Redbox. Screw tv!MyW1ldcrazylife

      Yeah cable is a joke now for sure… and I never understood why new customers got great cheap deals all the time while loyal customers paid an arm and a leg. Now I know why my parents cancelled our cable off and on when I was growing up! Also that package you got – almost $100 higher than advertised is such a crock!Syrana

    Viacom tried to pull this stunt last year with Directv. Directv wouldn’t have it and laid down the law. Sadly, Viacom still denies viewers around the world the right to view full episodes on their own websites now as I keep running into that myself. It was the worst month or so ever as a consumer. Sounds like that conflict is still repeating. Boycott Viacom is the only suggestion I have because they are using kids as pawns to get more money.
