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.

Lessons come too late in the episode.

My only beef with this show is that, though the babies learn a lesson by the end of the show, it's only after beating the "wrong idea" over the head the entire length of the episode. A recent example was Kermit thinking that "being a leader means having to do everything yourself, no matter what!" Which of course he learns is not the case. But the ENTIRE episode was him repeating this mantra over and over. I'm my experience, this way only leaves kids remembering the thing that was repeated several times. It's not a reason to rule out this show - but I make sure I communicate to my kids that Kermie was mistaken in his beliefs.

I'm a childless adult and I even I like this

Watched some episodes due to nostalgia for the 80's version (which was not around when I was alive, but still watched on VHS bootlegs on old YouTube), but I was pretty cute. If I were to babysit, I wouldn't mind passing it down to the next generation
