Best TV Shows to Watch on Disney+: Growing Up Animal

Photo Credit: (

I am a big fan of animal/nature shows such as Planet Earth. Disney+ recently released a new series called Growing Up Animal, which is a 6 episode series about animals growing up in the wild.

Each episode of Growing Up Animal follows a different animal, with the episodes including bears, sea lions, elephants, chimps, wild dogs, and lions. Each episode starts filming from the time the baby is born until it has reached adulthood (or at until it has grown up a bit).

The filming in the show is incredible, and I always have a ton of respect for how much footage the photographers are able to capture. The show is a great way to see how different animal species grow up, as well as how different their maturation processes are from humans.

Although Growing Up Animal does not have the legendary voice of David Attenborough narrating, it does have famous actress Tracee Ellis Ross narrating it (from the show Blackish). For animal and nature fans, Growing Up Animal is a great show on Disney+ to enjoy with the entire family!

Growing Up Animal Recommendation Rating: 4

This post has now been updated to reflect a new ratings system that I have implemented, which is scored as follows:

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
