My son, 5, loves all the shows on Qubo. A lot of them are listed under NBC, Ion. He also likes Sitting Ducks. Jacob he finds funny funny!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

In addition to boasting hip music and cool animation, Jacob Two-Two is a show that most kids should be able to relate to. What kid hasn't had to deal with wanting their own room, trying to fit in, and learning how to stand up for themselves in a big world? The sibling rivalries are sometimes overplayed, and the name-calling and occasional slight innuendoes between Jacob's parents might raise a few parental eyebrows. But overall the series successfully conveys useful life lessons in each episode, making it a fine choice for grade-schoolers.

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.
