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.

Squidward

Follow a 6-year-old girl named Darby and her puppy Buster, who join Pooh and Tigger on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood. To help solve mysteries Pooh and Tigger wear homemade superhero costumes and become Super Sleuths. With their new friend Darby they tackle some of the Hundred Acre Wood's wonders. Episodes feature singalong music and encourage young viewers to take a thoughtful look at the world they live in.

Funny

This show really holds up. I rewatched it with my daughter. (Sadly, I found that my other most-loved cat show, Heathcliff, did not hold up nearly as well.) It does have some mean behavior. It's not a "role models" kind of show.
