TV That Promotes Humility

Developing character strengths and life skills is essential to kids' overall growth and success. These TV shows help kids learn the value of understanding that no one is "better" than anybody else. The character strength of humility surfaces in these shows by being intrinsic to the story and being repeated several times in the actions of a lead character, and it "wins" over character flaws such as excessive pride. (See even more movies and TV shows that promote humility.)
