Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

for anyone who likes reunions

A big part of the fun is the get-together with the Muppets from THE MUPPET SHOW, SESAME STREET and FRAGGLE ROCK. So rarely do they all see each other. As for this generic nonChristmas holiday, the reason why they have that rather than a specific holiday (Hanukkah, etc.) was so they wouldn't offend anyone. To that end, great care was made.
