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.

Silly and immature

My kids loved it, but it's hard to sit through as an adult. It's silly and immature (with fewer adult references than the comic strip)
