Names are great

I watch this cartoon with my 2yr old all the time. I personally love the idea that Cleo is excited about every career that she discovers (house keeper,driver,vet,Gardner,police). These parents fussing about Cuquin's name, really need to get a grip. Are you seriously suggesting a change of the SPANISH character's name because you neglected to educate your children on different cultures and pronunciations? There is literally a Disney series called Nicky,Ricky,DICKY and Dawn,but we have no problem understanding that DICKY is just a person's name. The characters are great,the names are great,the cartoon is just great.

Educate your children on different cultures and learn how to pronounce a new name

Wow I can’t believe how many moms are banning a show because they can’t wrap their mind over something outside of American culture. How about you teach your child how to say Cuquin (Coo-Keen) instead of turning down a different culture. All of your little Jaydens and Kaydens will thank you later.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (27 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This brightly-animated, good-humored show is a bit of an anomaly in that its cast includes six young siblings whose adventures involve one another. It may not seem like an important factor, but Cleo & Cuquin does give viewers a pleasant impression of sibling relationships that work well. Relatable laughs will come out of the kid-size messes that inevitably happen, and there's positive behavior modeling in how the kids band together to solve them.

As one of the two main characters, Cleo usually is the face of what's learned in each story, and she turns it into a valuable learning experience by thinking about its effect on her future. It's another understated quality of this fun series, and one viewers can appreciate -- the value of imagination and role-playing in learning about yourself, your talents, and your hopes and dreams. As Cleo settles on a path for her future (at least until tomorrow!), she encourages kids to consider in a broader sense of who they are, what they like, and what they hope for.
