Sharing is caring!

The following list of 1960s Kids Movies are some of the most popular and memorable children’s movies of the decade and make a perfect movie library for your kids this Summer!

Music really made it’s mark in the 1960s with some huge names that are still popular today:  Elvis, Bee Gees, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and The Who.  The Sixties had Woodstock and saw the beginning of MoTown Records.

How about The Dirty Dozen, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Midnight Cowboy, The Pink Panther, Planet of the Apes, and Night of the Living Dead!?  These 1960s Kids Movies would make great movies for you adults to add to your library, but what about good, clean, family friendly movie night fun?

Great list! I love sharing movies that I saw as a child with my kids. Mary Poppins is a favorite in our family, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is hilarious! Another from the 1960s that is one of my son's favorites is That Darn Cat--my parents taped it off TV in 1990, and the VHS tape is still good, with the extra bonus of hilarious antique commercials.

Oh neat! I wish I had some recorded from TV like that - do you remember the "Where's the Beef?" commercials? LOL!
