Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

Watching cutesy cartoon children talk like jaded -- and often criminal -- adults is a shtick that can get old fast, so it's nice that these episodes are shorter in length (most clock in at under or around 10 minutes). The show's visuals are extremely kid-friendly, which is in direct contrast to the utterly adult content, and therein lies the joke. It's good to see a female-centric cast, even if it's animated, and more diversity in general. Though the humor can be a bit one-note, Ginger Snaps is an enjoyable enough diversion for mature teens and adults who are not easily offended.

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.
