Netflix has entertainment covered for the biggest bash of the year with new specials from Prince of Peoria, Alexa & Katie and Fuller House.

To choose the perfect guests to your party, you can check the full list of 2019 countdowns:

Alexa and Katie

A female-driven buddy comedy about two lifelong best friends starting their freshman year of high school. The friends confront a sudden role reversal when bold Alexa deals with cancer and the more timid Katie gets her chance to experience life the way Alexa does (whether she wants to or not).

Prince of Peoria

When Emil, a 13 year-old prince from a wealthy island kingdom, travels to the U.S. to live incognito as an exchange student, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Teddy, a fastidious overachiever who is Emil's total opposite.

Pinky Malinky

Pinky Malinky is a mockumentary style animated show that follows the everyday life of Pinky Malinky, an infectiously positive HOTDOG living in a human world. By always reaching for the stars, Pinky pushes himself further than anyone could imagine and proves that being a "wiener" is only one letter away from being a "WINNER"! Together with his two best friends, Babs and JJ, they navigate school in their beloved town of Sackenhack as only three best friends can.

Motown Magic

Ben is a deeply imaginative and slightly awkward eight-year-old African-American boy with a big heart. Ben has one amazing ability: like Arthur pulling the sword Excalibur from the stone, he is the unlikely 'chosen one' empowered to use Master Piece - a magical paintbrush with which he can bring to life the street-art characters and murals which adorn the walls of his city. Each of Motown's stories will be inspired by and built around a classic Motown song, sung by our characters as an intrinsic part of the dramatic narrative.

Larva Island

Yellow & Red are cast away on an island. On this exotic island lives fellow insects, animals and a human! The human is an extremely clumsy man who has very limited wit and intelligence. He becomes their competitor over food, shelter, survival and escape.

Beat Bugs

With songs made famous by the Beatles, five friendly bugs learn big lessons about the world around them -- all from the safety of their own backyard.

Skylanders Academy

Skylanders Academy follows the heroic adventures of the Skylanders team, a ragtag group of heroes with unique elemental skills who travel the vast Skylands universe, protecting it from evil-doers. They achieve victory by setting aside their egos, learning to trust one another and fighting as one to maintain harmony and balance in the land.

Super Monsters

As preschoolers with super powers, Drac, Cleo, Lobo, Katya, Zoe and Frankie are students with dual identities: humans by day and magical monsters by night. Enrolled at the prestigious Pitchfork Pines Preschool, the group of friends work together under the leadership of their teachers, Igor and Esmie, as they attempt to master their seemingly untamable powers.

True and the Rainbow Kingdom

True is the guardian of the magical Rainbow Kingdom and the show's bright and resilient girl lead. True, along with her best friend, Bartleby the cat, use ingenuity and creative thinking to solve problems big and small, and bring harmony and love to all. The series is based on artwork by the Friends With You fine art collective and its positive messages of Magic, Luck, and Friendship.

Tales of Arcadia

3Below is the story of a teenage girl, a Latino boy, and an old man who just happen to be aliens. With their home planet torn apart by Civil War, Princess Aja Tarron and Prince Krel Tarron will find themselves marooned on the most backwater, primitive world in the galaxy: Earth. The three take on human guises to conceal their alien form as they search for a safe passage back to their home planet, but while searching, they develop a real affection for Earth and its inhabitants. This series ultimately asks the simple yet complex question: "What is home?"

All Hail King Julien

King Julien and his trusty advisers race to save the kingdom from secret agents, stampeding clones and more -- while keeping the party going strong.

Boss Baby

Thanks to the underground efforts of Baby Corp, babies have always had the biggest slice of the love pie. Boss Baby, the suit-wearing, briefcase carrying VP of Field Operations will do whatever he can to keep it that way. With his older brother, Tim, and the loyal Baby Corp field team by his side, taking on designer puppies and anarchist kittens just feels like another day at the office.

Spirit Riding Free

Inspired by the Oscar nominated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Spirit Riding Free follows the heartfelt journey of a wild mustang who could not be tamed. A whole new generation will experience all the daring adventures when Spirit meets a girl named Lucky whose courage matches his own. Together they push limits, harness the power of friendship and discover what it means to be free.

Fuller House

Spinoff based on the classic 90s comedy. When DJ Tanner loses her husband, Kimmy and Stephanie move in to help her raise her 3 kids.

Methodology

Ipsos:These are the findings from an Ipsos poll conducted November 14 - 19, 2018 on behalf of Netflix. For the survey, a sample of 1,065 adults ages 18 and over from the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii was interviewed online, in English. In order to qualify for the survey, respondents had to have a child between the ages of 3 - 13 living at home.
