This special is a bit scattered, but it's a fun examination of how kids felt about the presidency in the year 2011, a few years after the historic election of Barack Obama. The kids are extremely cute, making observations about George Washington's "weird hair" and the option to outlaw spinach. They also make some pretty astute statements, including the fact that all presidents were kids at some point. The animations aren't outstanding but the kids' hopeful ideas and outlook shine here.

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.
