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.

Subtle Homonyms mask Expletives!

Fetch welcomes his audience, "Hello Fetches!!!" Aside from what definitely sounded like Hello Female Dogs, the phrasing was exactly like any adult comedian would use. Personally I don't want my 9 yr old yelling to her friends across a crowed room what she heard on this or any other show, that seeks to be cool and current above being decent. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that there are engaging shows like this out there. But the phrase in question, is plain old lazy, careless writing by individuals who either have no boundaries or have no kids!
