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.

Definitely not for kids...

Had never heard of the show. Watching TV late one evening, saw a cartoon with majority African American characters, thought I'd give it a shot. I stupidly fancied thoughts of the HBO series Happily Ever After. Boy was I wrong. Horrified that this show had prostitution, gratuitous violence, sex, profanity, etc. Clearly for adults but on a kids channel cartoon network.
