December 2021 Animation Streaming Guide December 2021 Animation Streaming Guide

The year may be wrapping up, but streamers aren’t slowing down their animation releases.

For December, we’re expanding our monthly round-up of shows and films to include Comcast-NBCUniversal’s Peacock service. It’ll now be included monthly alongside Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Apple TV+, Paramount+, Hulu, and The Criterion Channel. If there are other U.S. streaming services you’d like to see added to our line-up, share a comment below.

Also, a housekeeping note: streamers often announce new animation releases mid-month. This list only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but when possible we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements.
