A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
While the show is more about providing entertaining action than pushing positive messages, it does promote the idea of a strong female heroine and clearly distinguishes between "good" and "bad."
Positive Role Models
Juniper is a strong, resourceful superheroine. The show avoids stereotyping, a trap that it easily could have fallen into.
Violence & Scariness
Some cartoon violence (but no blood).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated series has its share of cartoon violence, but only the bad monsters get beaten up. It's a fun and age-appropriate show with some very positive features: a girl superhero and a refreshing lack of racial stereotypes.
Is It Any Good?
It's great to see a girl getting to be the hero, and doing it more or less on her own. Another big plus is the lack of racial stereotyping: Juniper is Asian, and the boy she has a crush on is African American.
The show's animation is rather flat, though there is an impressive array of monsters and demons, both good and bad. Overall, it's fun and entertaining and certainly a good lead-in for the more mature pleasures of Buffy.
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.
