I can't this show! But it's good for kids.

I hate this show SO MUCH! It's horribly stupid and annoying! However,it's good for lttle kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Gerald offers giggles for everyone in the family in much the same way that the cartoon classics do. The humor is sometimes physical, sometimes verbal, and never scatological (although there is a dog who burps rather than barking). It's sheer, harmless fun -- but if you're looking for even the slightest educational or moral content, you'd do best to go elsewhere.

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.
