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.

it's neat!

While master splinter didn't show his affection the exact way the prior version of him [in the 2012 series] did, it is still seen that he does indeed care for his children, where he was LITERALLY offering the last piece of the dark armor to guarantee his sons' safety. And with the turtles, it's lovely to see their new personalities and how they adapt to the situations they are put in and how they get out of them. And they learn to stay true to themselves while facing said challenges and basically learning about teamwork and such! Seeing a new tmnt series since the last one ended was nice, and I loved it very much. So sad to see it end. :(

25+ adults are just nostalgia goers

This iteration of TMNT is the friendliest for kids actually illustrating what modern families are like even if there flaws are surprising at first impression, they do go through major development. The animation, action, music & art style (similar to Samurai Jack) is incredibly fun!
