A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Viewers learn great tips on animal care.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animal variety show features footage of animals performing tricks, true stories about animal heroes, and educational material about caring for different types of critters. Young viewers will learn a lot about animals' needs and other related issues, including rescue efforts.
Is It Any Good?
While Animal Tales doesn't exactly break new TV ground, young viewers (especially Animal Planet fans) will probably be entertained -- just remind them not to try the tricks they see on TV with the family pet. They'll also learn handy pet-care information and "meet" some positive role models who are making a difference in the animal kingdom. Just don't be surprised if the show's sometimes-corny tone sends older teens and tweens hunting for bigger game on other channels.
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.
