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.

This show so stupid! The most ANNYOING thing ever produced "for kids" . It is NOOOOOTT for little kids. iT is more like for 12+ and i always hated this "cartoon".

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
age 10+
This is a funny show, but it is not for little kids as Henry acts rude and mean to others. As long as the child watching understands that it is a cartoon and not real life they should be fine watching it
