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.

I do like seeing a strong male type of character for boys. My only disappointment is the inclusion of witches and wizards. For your family, that might be just childish fun, but we are choosing to steer clear of that type of content.

Awesome show! People need to get a life. Let kids be kids.

I don't know what you people are talking about! You really shouldn't take EVERYTHING so seriously! The catchphrase is adorable...to me, "Be a Knight and Do it Right!" is WAY better than the ones on other shows such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: "We've got ears, say cheers!" UGH, now THAT gets annoying. Mike the Knight rivals Jake and the Neverland Pirates for my sons as far as lessons in how to treat others go. (and Pirates also have a bad rep in real life, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't let our little boys watch something that teaches good manners and character traits just because Blackbeard -or whoever- was a terrible person!!!) Obviously Umizoomi and Bubble Guppies (and others) have those beat in ABC's and 123's. My almost 3 year old LOVES this show and we have had some great "teachable moments" while watching together. Mike (and Evie) mess up a lot, just as any kid (or even adult) does. You have to make some mistakes to learn the lessons. Jeez. I'm happy this show is on! I hope it continues. At least Nick Jr is thinking about little boys and showing something that's not all about pink princesses. You can find bad in anything you watch if you look hard enough. Stop over-thinking everything. Your children aren't.
