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.

Safe, Age- appropriate, Innocent, and Wholesome so far - Interesting Plot

I've watched up to episode 3 in series 1, and from what I've seen so far, it seems like a wholesome, innocent, safe show for kids to watch. It's about standing up for what's right, justice for animals, and friendship. Hopefully it stays that way, and doesn't change in future episodes and seasons, like so many of the other series do - with sexual messages and themes integrated later on, unfortunately. Finally a show/series that kids can watch with wholesome plot and messages - without love and sex themes, which are not appropriate for kids (unlike Flash, Supergirl, and Shera). Even my teen daughter likes this show/series, and is relieved to not have to be exposed to sexual themes and love interests! What a refreshing and much needed change. Please keep up the series the way it is, and don't change it! If so, this family is a loyal fan - with 9 and 14 year old kids. Please add more shows with these values! Love interests and sexual themes are not needed to make or keep a show interesting - even for teens and adults! This show also has some educational value with information about animals. There is also some violence, with guns/shooting etc, but no one gets killed and no gore. Also, a positive role model for girls with Jane independent and able to defend herself.

Great morales

It tells your kids to say yes to saving animals and defending yourself, family, and friends along with nature and animals. Along with saying no to doing bad things like poachers and doing bad doesn’t get you anywhere except in trouble in more ways then one. It will keep your kids entertained quite easily and will teach them about conservation of the wild and protecting animals no matter where they are. Definitely a good message.
