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.

The Episodes with Maryanne Smith are NOT school appropriate, family appropriate, nor kid appropriate

The episodes with Maryanne Smith which are Supper Villain, Just Deserts, The Boys are Back in Town, and Night Mayor are NOT school appropriate, family appropriate, nor kid appropriate because just like Frankie Foster, Maryanne Smith screams, yells, makes freaky spikey eyelashes, and triangular eyes and makes kids feel like that they are a bad boy or a bad girl which is emotionally abusive. Maryanne Smith is the most abusive PowerPuff Girls villain.
