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.

So funny and overall a great programme

I watch this programme with my child and she loves it too. I think it is up to the parent if they want their child to watch it since there is a few swear words. Very funny and entertaining. It is something that you can watch over and over again without getting bored. I recommend this to 10+ but it is the parents preference.

Too much swearing
