Is It Any Good?

George and Martha will no doubt bring a smile and a giggle to a child's day. The characters' earnest attempts to be a good friend sometimes backfire, but watching George and Martha mend their messes is a lot of fun. The educational content isn't strong, but the show does illustrate many different pro-social elements that even older children can benefit from. The only potential negative aspect is that George and Martha are sometimes laughed at because of the trouble they get into (like getting stuck in a door) due to their size.

Overall, George and Martha is a strong choice for kids. While it's not necessarily a preschool program, children 4 and up will certainly love these silly, endearing beasts. As long as parents explain that laughing at someone's size can be hurtful, this show will both entertain kids and reinforce what it means to be a good friend.

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.
