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.

An often overlooked NickToon but a goodie!

For me... I never really watched it until it came to CBS All Access (which will soon be Paramount+). I only watched little snippets of the show on NickRewind’s YT channel. But still I say this is one of the NickToons that often get overlooked that actually deserve more attention... The kind of attention that “Rugrats”, “SpongeBob” “FOP”, & “Avatar” got, it’s got some good messages to it. Also one thing I noticed about the cartoon is that it was Nick’s first show that would end & air some unaired episodes that only made it to DVD 10 years after the show’s actual finale... that was actually a pretty nice way to give the retro Nick fans more joy & pleasure to see one of their ended shows air an episode that had never made it to TV before. All eps of “Ginger” (including the one that has never aired on TV yet) are available to stream on CBS All Access (which will soon be renamed as “Paramount+” come this March). And to those who haven’t seen the show I really highly recommend it along with “ChalkZone”, it would really help give these shows more of the attention that they deserve!
