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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Battle Kitty is an interactive adventure series about a cute little kitty and his best friend, Orc (both characters are voiced by show creator Matt Layzell). The two travel through their futuristic medieval world fighting enemies and exploring. When Kitty gets agitated, his powers are activated. There's not a lot of interactivity within individual episodes, but there is a map where viewers can choose what they want to watch; they aren't able to access certain episodes until they've collected "keys" by watching others, not unlike completing video game quests. Expect lots of cartoonish violence with an edge: Most of the orc characters are big, scary, and mean; Battle Kitty gets electrocuted in a pool, and characters are trampled. Language includes "butts," "big poo-head," and "booty," and there's fart humor. Orcs drink what looks like beer or ale.

What's the Story?
Battle Kitty is an interactive adventure series about a cute little kitty and his best friend, Orc (both characters are voiced by show creator Matt Layzell). The two travel through their futuristic medieval world fighting enemies and exploring. When Kitty gets agitated, his powers are activated.
Is It Any Good?
This edgy series doesn't quite know who its audience is, or why it's interactive -- that said, it's still a fun romp through a goofball kingdom. Unlocking episodes feels a little more like a chore than a game, but kids will find the relationship between the unlikely friends charming (while parents may not love the potty humor).
