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.

What imbecile created this?

This was the weirdest, strangest, nonsensical garbage I've seen in a while. It's so bad that we turned it off a few minutes into it... In the middle of a weird song about latkes. The Home movie was fun and our kids liked it a lot. This is a horrible, lets-try-to-capitalize-on-it-and-make-somthing-about-christmas type show. It has no real plot other than to do weird flashy animation with voices that sound almost like the originals, but definitely not the real ones. There isn't anything... bad in the show...like drugs, guns, or cussing... but IMHO it's basically a throwaway piece of junk. Do yourselves and your kids a favor and don't put this junk in their brains.

Fairly Stupid

I put this special on for my children and was immidently distracted by the bad art. Other than that, it started out okay. Then A pink Boov woman sang about how much she loved being surrounded by muscular men and reciving gifts. She shook her chest in the camera. There was then a song about Ladkas, and how a boy is obsesed with eating them until he becomes morbidly obese. I was offended. They had the NERVE to mention Hannakuh, but no Jesus! I did like how there was a bit of a positive message about being careful with tuning Jesus out of CHRISTmas.
