Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who like sketch comedy and absurd humor will enjoy this show. Think of The Plop like a Saturday Night Live for kids—and just like SNL, the comedy can be hit or miss. Many of the sketches are very funny. The "World's Best Grandpa" political ads and the "History of Amazing Objects" (hosted by a very accident prone professor) are especially well done. But the host's delivery in the exaggerated and bumbling Larry Dobbs voice might be too much for some listeners. Overall, it's a fun listen that will appeal to many young comedy fans and their families.

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.
