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.

Annual Classic!

I loved this short when I was growing up! My family watches it every year in the month of November leading up to Thanksgiving and it is now one of my favorite Peanuts shorts. It will never be forgotten and it makes Thanksgiving more well-known. With nothing explicit, it is for all ages and is definitely worth watching numerous times.
