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.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Some people can't handle shows that respect children's intelligence.

Most shows look down on children, and lessen their content to appease parents. All hail king julien isn't a kids show. It's an animated comedy series. I watched the entire thing with my kids from when it came out till when it ended. It was hilarious when they were eight, and it's hilarious now. Also, it has great plot structure. Free form, random episodes that don't affect the lot turn out to matter in a big way. I've heard people complain about the KGB episode, but that's one of the best ones. All hail king julien Is appropriate and humorous for anyone ages 6-99. Also, it has fantastic political messages that support socialism. In summary: All hail king julien has sexual innuendos (Gay and straight), addiction, and important political statements. I love the show. This site is honestly insulting to children's intelligence. Kids should watch what they want, within your rules or outside them. This year, my 12 year old saw joker, bojack horseman and medical police. No, you shouldn't recommend adult content to children. But don't demonize children understanding comedy, the world and intense levels of drama and pain. No, all hail king julien doesn't have much of that. But its the best kids show I've ever seen, besides maybe the Flumps.
