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.

Sexually inappropriate for kids

Sex jokes are apparently appropriate for 7 year olds now. One of the female animals asked to see the scar on king Julien's butt and he said, we really don't have time for that in a suggestive way. I want the execs who think this is ok to come over and explain what that means to my second grader without blushing.

Great show, but there are a few issues

This is a great show. There are a few things in violence, for example king Julian falls out of a baobab tree many times and is very hurt. There is also some fighting and clover always gets violent with People and she beats them up. King Julian also talks a lot about peoples booty and in one episode he is dating this lemur named Crimson who engages him to do dangerous things. Karl is gay and has a relationship with a cockroach, too. There are some words such as “Stupid” and “Idiot” and “Dumb” and a few other mild insults, but there is no swearing. Other than that, it is a great show and your kid will enjoy it. My only issue is they have a lot of potty talk and saying words like “Poop” and “Booty” many times.
