Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Drawn To is a series of short videos produced by Cartoon Network that celebrate Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Asian American Pacific Islander Month, and Pride Month. The videos are appropriate for kids of all ages but will be most relevant to kids in Cartoon Network's audience (roughly ages 5+). The show is a wonderful celebration of kids in the United States and their passions as it explores how their various identities intersect with what they love.
Is It Any Good?
Drawn To is a fantastic example of diverse representation in media. Not only is it highlighting groups that are traditionally underrepresented in children's media, but it also celebrates the diversity within each group. Because the videos show real kids mentioning their identities by name (e.g., "Afro-Carribean," "Puerto Rican," "non-binary"), many young viewers at home will recognize themselves in the kids on television. Also, while parts of the segments talk about things kids love that are particular to their cultural identity, other parts talk about unrelated hobbies, like charity work and hanging out with family. It celebrates kids' cultures without reducing them to a simple stereotype.
The series of short videos featured in Drawn To are great for kids, but here's to hoping that more of this fantastic representation makes it into Cartoon Network's (and other networks') animated series as well, for an even bigger impact.
