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.

Its a decent show for kids

The show was enjoyable. It contained some good kids elements and the likable redesign of the protagonists from the original show. I'm just curious why people would complain about the "talking fish". It was one of the new features that my young sibling loved from this show. The only downside was the art style which was relatively poor. But besides this it fairly decent.

Terrible role models

Kids can learn all about inappropriate things like calling women “gold diggers”, flirting and being rough and abusive towards younger siblings. All from the main characters of the show. Not to mention propagating female stereotypes about body image, shallowness and bullying. Has been happily blocked from my daughter’s Netflix account.
