Amphibia has a similar animation style to The Owl House and has a similar target audience, but that’s not all. The storyline shares many similarities as well.

Where Amphibia differs is that the land Anne ends up in is a marshland that has anthropomorphic amphibians as the primary inhabitants of the land. The show explores themes like social class, change, and environmental awareness throughout the series making it even more appealing to all ages.

Gravity Falls (2012-2016)

Streaming on Disney+

Gravity Falls Main Characters

While Luz stumbles into a world of mysteries and magic, Dipper and Mabel get roped into it when they go visit their great uncle at The Mystery Shack in Gravity Falls. The twins have a summer they never expected.

The show only ran for two seasons even though it was well-loved. The adventure, jokes, family aspects, and overall story of the show were strong and the director wanted to end it on a high note instead. Gravity Falls received the highest rating on rotten tomatoes and is even still a popular animated series ten years after coming out.

The Cuphead Show! (2022)

Streaming on Netflix

The Owl House follows Luz as she explores the Boiling Isles. Similarly, in The Cuphead Show! fans follow Cuphead and his brother Mugman all over the Inkwell Isles.

The Cuphead Show! is based on the old video game Cuphead, and there are many things that fans of the game are thrilled to see carry over. The consistency between the two is due to the producers of the game joining the production of the show, which is one of the many things fans don’t know about The Cuphead Show!

Hilda (2018-Present)

Streaming on Netflix

Following along the life of a young girl figuring out her place in a new world is a common theme among animated kid’s shows. It’s present in many shows, including Hilda where fans follow 11-year-old Hilda after she moves to the city and has to learn to adapt after being born in the woods.

Her positive attitude allows her to befriend just about everyone that she and her deerfox, Twig, encounter. She appears to be fearless, and it’s empowering for a young audience to see. Having characters that maintain positivity in hard, or scary, situations, and are kind to everyone they meet is a great message to give to kids in shows like this.

Young Justice (2010-Present)

Streaming on HBO Max

Although it may not be magic, Young Justice is filled with beings that have superpowers. Superheroes are taking over the film industry between the MCU and the DCEU coming out with new content regularly.

Even though the concept of the team of young supers isn’t new, the show is a fresh take on the universe. The show doesn’t follow the comics directly giving it a unique flair. The team of supers that ranged from teenagers to young adults is working together to prove themselves as heroes, while also going through normal life things that people their age go through. Young Justice is a great tv show on superheroes that provides a different take on a popular genre.

Witches and wizards have soared in popularity over the last decade. From shows like The Owl House to the Harry Potter movies, there are more characters with magical traits than ever. Sabrina was one of the original witches on TV in the 90s sitcom Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. 

The new adaptation of the beloved witch series premiered on Netflix in 2018 with a new name, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Not only is it a coming-of-age story, but it also has a much darker side than its original. This dark side includes horror and fear moments, although some Reddit fans don’t believe the show was scary enough, as Sabrina learns to take on both her witchy side and her mortal side, targeting a slightly different audience than its predecessor.

She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power (2018-2020)

Streaming on Netflix

Luz and Amity are fans’ favorite couple in the show, and many saw it coming from the first time they met. They are just one of the many LGBTQ+ couples on TV that fans are losing their minds over.

From Katra and Adora to Bow’s dads, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power have a very inclusive array of characters. Additionally, the show is filled with adventure, magic, technology, and an alien invasion. The show has incredible depth for a kid’s show and is another show that got an updated adaptation, which ended up doing great.
