With Netflix originals rich in history and complexity, following plot lines may have you turning to Google to search for facts while you watch. Whether you’re getting sucked into the historical dramas of The Crown or Narcos and want to learn more about the Royal Family or the infamous cartels, Google is the one to turn to while streaming your favorite Netflix shows. And no it’s not just you–your kids have questions, too. An episode of Justin Time Go! may have them wondering “How far away is the moon?”, while the StoryBots will have them pondering all sorts of riddles like “How do airplanes fly?” and “Why is the sky blue?”. Parents are expected to have the answers to everything, and thanks to Google, you do. Netflix viewers big and small are Googling their favorite shows more than ever.
From the facts and figures of history to little-known answers for peculiar questions, what are the most recent searches in your Netflix and Google history?
With their curious minds, it doesn’t take your kids long to turn family movie night into a never-ending session of 21 Questions. Let Google help you take a trip to Motunui with Moana or travel the sky with Jeff Bridges in The Little Prince (yes, that’s actually his voice you’re hearing). Once you’re finished Googling, download and share these GIFs on your social channels.
Kids may say the darndest things, but they also ask the hardest questions. Whether it’s the new way they’re learning long division or if they’re asking you science questions that seem much more sophisticated than their age (thanks Magic School Bus Rides Again), keep your family TV time moments intact with Google in the palm of your hand.

This October, it’s all about the kids. For the little ones, new episodes of Word Party are now streaming on Netflix, and don’t miss the launch of Super Monsters on October 13 just in time for Halloween. For the older kids, blast into action with new seasons of Skylanders Academy and Voltron: Legendary Defender. And you won’t want to miss the highly anticipated Stranger Things 2when the return to Hawkins—and the Upside Down—comes to Netflix on October 27.
