A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Corwin really cares about the world's animals, enough to wrestle them. Caution kids that this isn't something everyone can or should do.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this show is fun and educational for the whole family. Using both low- and high-tech equipment, Corwin demonstrates animals' various special abilities with the aim of educating viewers. Parents should explain to kids that Corwin is a professional, and warn them not to repeat what they see on the show with any wild animals they encounter.
Is It Any Good?
Corwin's success at capturing an audience is not only thanks to his marvelous animal guests, but also to his enthusiasm for animals and dedication to nature preservation. His excitement encourages viewers to think about how precious the planet's diverse ecosystem is and how now, more than ever, its creatures need our help. By traveling to the remote corners of the earth that viewers may never see, Corwin's Quest educates them about the world outside their neighborhood.
A word of caution: While Corwin's Quest has a lot of positive messages for children and really inspires their curiosity about the natural world, Corwin still does some crazy things -- like wrestling alligators and poking sticks at potentially lethal spiders. Kids need to know that they should never copy what they see and never handle wild animals without parental supervision. But in a world of highly age-specific television, Corwin's Quest is a program that the whole family can watch and really enjoy together -- something that may be an endangered species itself.
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.
