The animated Stone Age comedy movies The Croods and The Croods 2 are streaming on some platforms and available to rent and purchase on others. First released in 2013, The Croods tells the story of a prehistoric family who lives in a fictionalized, ancient time period. The first film depicts the patriarch Grug (Nicolas Cage) and his family as they explore the wider world beyond their cave. The Croods led to a TV and movie franchise that includes The Croods 2, which saw the return of the cast with some new additions to expand the animated world, and two TV shows, Dawn of the Croods and The Croods: Family Tree.

The Croods franchise has lingered despite its historical inaccuracies because of the heart-warming family dynamics at its core. While the series certainly uses its setting as a way to make era-related jokes and offer a fun and colorful world for viewers, it’s the resonant themes of the story that keep the series so long-lived. Grug doesn’t like change and worries about new experiences and people, while his children, wife, and mother are much more outgoing. It’s a simple but effective dynamic and combines with the fantastic art for an exciting franchise that everyone can find a reason to love. And there are plenty of ways to watch The Croods and The Croods 2.

The Croods is available to stream on Peacock. Subscriptions to the service come in two tiers, “Premium”, which includes ads, for $5.99/month, and “Premium Plus”, which removes ads, for $11.99/month. Unfortunately, The Croods 2 is not currently available for streaming so fans hoping to find the franchise on one of their streaming platforms will have to settle for just the first film. Both films are rated PG for some action violence, typical of many animated children’s movies, and certainly expected of a series set in a time period with plenty of dangerous creatures to fight.
