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.

characters that kids can identify with

Huckleberry Hound was naïve and gullible, just as young children are. Kids will be able to identify with him as a result. Moreover, this series was by and large nonviolent. True, there were guns, but they weren't meant to be taken seriously. Besides, these cartoons were made when most people weren't sensitive to the presence of guns in cartoons. Kids will also be able to identify with Pixie, Dixe and Mr. Jinks. Sometimes they'll be better able to identify with Pixie and Dixie, always being tormented by some mean kid (or adult). At other times they'll identify with Mr. Jinks, as it's very normal for kids to misbehave, then feel remorseful immediately afterwards, just as Mr. Jinks does. Kids of all ages can enjoy these cartoons. These cartoons are clearly the anti-Barney.
