Good idea for a Show that can be more enjoyable if the background music is reduced or completely eliminated so one can better appreciate the natural sounds of what is been shown on the screen. The music on the show is so loud we couldn’t differentiate if the sound was from the elk or the band.

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.
