Netflix takes things off the platform every month, and sadly, this time a few popular kids’ franchises are getting the chop. All three Madagascar movies (Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted) and all four Spy Kids movies (Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, Spy Kids 3: Game Over and Spy Kids: All the Time in the World) are leaving the platform on March 30th. Lastly, on March 31st, seasons one through five of Peppa Pig will also be gone. Luckily there's still the whole month left to enjoy them as a family. Everyone to the couch!
