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.

Most Annoying Voices

Thus show is like nails on a chalkboard. I really cannot say anything nice about it.
age 6+

Sweet and simple

Goofy, light-hearted fun. Silly adventures with occasional silly songs centered around a silly, accident-prone chicken, his practical side-kick friend, Bee, and his older siblings who live in a large egg shaped house. The themes here seems to be acceptance of one's own and others foibles, acceptance of others at face value, forgiveness, cooperation, friendship and a love for Corny-O's. The strongest negative emotion seems to be mild annoyance. No fighting that I recall. Lots of slapstick humor. It's brought laughter to my 9 year old during this stressful time. I enjoy watching it with him.
