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.

Great watch with the family. Nothing explicit in it but the show does involve dealing with sick animals. They don't show much but things are implied.

A family classic!

Watched the original as a child with my family and have such fond memories. The new series is just as good. We've watched an episode every Sunday night and my two boys age 11 and 13 have really enjoyed the story lines and period setting. Lots of smiles and laughter as we got to know the characters (and their foibles.)
