Qubo plays this show.....

And qubo teaches great values and all that good stuff, so you are supposed to trust your child with this channel. Never had a problem with the channel until this was interesting until she started talking about robots making out, and then the longest under water make out what in the world? My 8 year old asked me what that was, and we are a Christian family, I didn't know what to say, but she saw them making out so she has a good idea about what it means anyway.....if they could have left that out it would have been great, but I'm a little disappointed......

Is It Any Good?

Culture Click takes a unique approach to teaching kids about history, social studies, and other potentially less-favored subjects, and the unusual format pays big dividends for its viewing audience. The charismatic host dispenses a lot of information in stream-of-consciousness style, spending a brief minute or two on one topic before drawing an unlikely connection between it and some other interesting trivia. The result is a fascinating and often humorous journey through cultural history that's so much fun it virtually ensures at least some of the facts will sink into the memories of its viewers.

There's nothing in the content that will worry parents, but the series is geared toward older kids and tweens who have at least a rudimentary understanding of the subjects it covers. There are multiple occasions for the show's partner website's name to show on the screen, which complements the visual pop-ups and audible mouse clicks that punctuate each episode, so don't be surprised if your kids want to check out the site after the credits roll.

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.
