The irrepressible Maya the Bee demonstrates perseverance, kindness, and open-heartedness. She is a constructive role model for preschool girls and boys who are learning what it means to be a good friend. The adventurous story is entertaining without any romance or overt violence. Ultimately, the characters learn valuable lessons about misinformation, fearing the 'other', and finding common ground with those who seem different from us.

Maya the Bee Parent Guide

Some rude humor, not so bad edgy jokes, and some mild action. There are still great messages like life lessons and morals in this cartoon.

Teaches Rebellion against Home Life

More than anything, Maya the Bee teaches Children that they can live outside the Hive (Home). She and WIlly are able to tell the Adult Bees (Parents) that they don't want to be told to do their Chores, that they can play when they want to and work when they want to. But it's always their call. The Adult they listen to most often isn't a Family Member. It's Flip, a Grasshopper. They respect the Queen Bee but they actually lead her into all sorts of scrapes. And Miss Cassandra who seems to be the Queen's Assistant, is a weakling who looks to Maya to solve all of the ills that beset the Hive. I do not consider Maya or Willy to be good Role Models. Flip seems to be about the same as the Grasshopper in the Fable about the Ants & the Grasshopper. While he's wise and kind, he's not a good Role Model either. Not when Miss Cassandra or the Queen should be providing the Wisdom and Aid the Children need.
