Sticks to the basics of science and doesn’t push woke agenda

I like this for my 3 year old because it simplifies important basic science principles. It isn’t perfect but it introduces concepts. Also I am skeptical about Nickelodian in general attempting to plant work seeds and woke ideas that I don’t agree with and so far I haven’t seen any of this. I don’t let my children watch blues clues or muppets for that reason.

Let’s Blaze

Um. Sure. Ok. Let’s blaze! Clearly, that was the battle cry for the writers, who were obviously blazing when they wrote these scripts. Seriously, the MOST common meaning of this phrase, used throughout the show, is … yeh … you guessed it—lets Smoke weed. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I enjoy Tom Petty’s music as much as the next guy. But as the mantra for a show aimed at kids 3 to about 6 or 7? I suppose that it’s a bit funny, really, but the writing reflects the mantra. If you’re blazing while watching, it might be tolerable. If not, we’ll, you will feel the IQ points draining away.
