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.

Great show

This is actually quite surprising, I didn't think kid's cartoons could get so deep and personal. But it did. It teaches meaningful lessons and isn't a problem/solution kinda thing. The characters all have their strengths and weaknesses, and very relatable, overall. I recommend watching some of the episodes.
