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.

Watch out for the “Why can’t I eat desert episode”

Depictions of hazing. A strawberry pledge in a frat house full of junk food is dipped in chocolate against his will. The food items are chanting “chug, chug, chug.”The junk foods are basically hazing each other. It’s gross and triggering. It’s just very disappointing.

Ugh

I wanted to like this, but it’s really in-your-face. Too fast-paced, too much anger. I really don’t want my child to emulate the characters here. The topics are interesting, and the bots themselves have charm, but the appeal gets lost in a too-flashy, Ren-and-Stimpy-like agitated fervor. We’ve watched a few now, and I’ve regularly found myself skipping past sections that are just too much. Better yet, skip this program altogether.
