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.

A good Halloween choice

A really well done stop motion Halloween special. Adults can appreciate it too for its fun and clever writing . Has welcome callbacks to Spongebob Sponge out of water near the end (not spoiling what) which are rare for this series. I highly recommend it
age 2+
