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.

Suitable for kids, but a bad cartoon

There ARE moments looking like they were aimed at kids, and I do appreciate that. But, I HATE this show. EXTREMELY HATE THIS SHOW FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!! First, the main character, Fred is annoying, a litterbug, and his dull and stupid character bugs me. Secondly, this is unoriginal like Johnny Test, and is a copycat of "SpongeBob". Robert Paulson, who made this show, announced it a "shameless SpongeBob ripoff", and I agree with him.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Just a ripoff of SpongeBob SquarePants

This show is SpongeBob but everyone is fruit. The Lemon is basically Squidward, Coconut Fred IS SpongeBob but a coconut, and the Banana’s are Patrick Star ripoffs. Even Rob Paulsen disliked voicing characters in this! This would be a good alternative to SpongeBob if you don’t allow your kids to watch SpongeBob, but Coconut Fred is way more annoying.
