Cartoons8 is another one brought to us by Metal Kettle.  Cartoons8 has two main sections Cartoons, which is a collection of Cartoon shows, and Anime, which is a collection of Anime for adults and kids alike.  What I really like about the add-on is how easy it is to manoeuvre around and find the content you are looking for.  In each of the two main sections, this add-on has six (6) sub-sections from an easy search feature if you know what you are looking for to the popular or newly added if you are just searching to see what is out there.  After playing around with this add-on quickly I have to say I was happy to find the few shows I tested in 720 which makes it very enjoyable to watch.

How to Access Cartoons8

There are two ways we can now access this add-on so we can start playing around in it.  The first is going to be by clicking it inside the repo now that we have it installed and selecting Open and the second would be to navigate to the Home menu and scroll over to Video Add-ons and look for the Cartoons8 logo.  Once you have opened it you will see the following screen:

Depending on what you are looking for click on either Cartoons or Anime and you can start surfing around.  Below you will see where I have pulled a few images from a Lego’s Star Wars episode on the eve before the premiere showing of Star Wars Rogue One.
