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.

This cartoon presents itself as cute, educational, and friendly. A two mom family is not what God created and is not as innocent as it is shown here. Should we accept all family types- of course, we should treat all the same. But we should not promote this kind of a life style to such young children.

Love diversity!

It is really sad to see so many adults who think diversity in characters is a bad thing. Raising hateful children is not what this world needs. This show has a gentle plot line and no "hidden agenda" as the bigots would have you believe. Great show, watch it if you aren't a bigot and you'll be fine.
