Six-year-old Hank spends most of his days with his best friends at the top of the hill, right behind his house. And his bestest pal of all is the large, green Trash Truck—a truck that can become almost anything Hank needs him to be.

Together, Hank and Trash Truck experience daily adventures, powered by Hank’s own curiosity. They’re joined by Donnie the raccoon, Walter the bear and Mrs. Mona the rat.

This band of buddies begin playing the moment the sun rises. And while some things might be difficult, like learning to overcome fears or working through frustrations, nothing is impossible with a little creativity, a bit of teamwork and a whole lot of imagination.

If You Can Think It

Trash Truck, rated TV-Y, is a Netflix original aimed at preschoolers. Each episode focuses on creativity, teamwork, kindness, education and friendship. Here, a young boy and his animal friends learn that anything is possible when you put your mind to it.

Do you remember when all you had to do was close your eyes to fly around the world, snorkel in the ocean or travel to fantastical lands? For adults this might sound far off, but for littles, this is their entire world. And Netflix meets them right where they are.

Punky Brewster

Punky Brewster isn’t a reboot. And it’s not quite the same family-friendly sitcom older fans might remember, either.


Ginny & Georgia

Ginny & Georgia is, at best, trashy escapism not fit for the teens it’s aimed at. At worst, it’s just plain trash.


Superman & Lois

While Superman will always be there to save the world, he needs to be present for Lois and his sons now.
