Season 1 episode 4 Cory’s mom and dad kiss and Cory’s reaction is oh no! This is disgusting! I believe this is more a teenager reaction not a 3 or 4 years old! We decided to stop watching this show cause I don’t want my kids thinking that parents kissing is disgusting!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Sweetness abounds in this darling series that packages all kinds of preschool-appropriate feelings and conundrums into the heroic main character. Cory's best intentions sometimes get the better of him and land him in some uncomfortable and unfamiliar predicaments (maybe this sounds familiar?), but as viewers will see, he's not one to back down from them. Instead he makes the best of every situation, learns valuable lessons, and tries to do better the next time around. All the while he's supported by his loving parents and the other caring adults in his life.

Cory's individual example aside, Go! Go! Cory Carson has much to teach youngsters about the structure and purpose of a community as a whole. Bumperton Hills is a place that works like a well-oiled machine because of the residents in it, each of whom has a specific role to fill. There are teachers, firefighters, police officers, sanitation workers, and babysitters, and as Cory comes into contact with each one, viewers learn along with him how vital those respective contributions are to the greater community. Even better, the show makes a concerted effort to represent both female and male characters in a variety of occupations and to emphasize the inherent value of every job that is done.

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.
