Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Kid has all the trappings of a classic superhero -- bravery, cunning and a tragic backstory, but he can't quite seem to get it right. It's the way Kid and his team face these failures that makes Kid Cosmic such a charming show. Each hilarious mistake comes with a valuable lesson for tweens and teens. McCracken brings the same whimsy and cheeky attitudes to the alien characters as seen in his previous space adventure series Wander Over Yonder. However, some parents may want to consider that younger viewers who take things at face value might get the wrong impression from characters like Rosa who are celebrated for their instinctive violence. Overall, it's a great option for family viewing, especially for parents who grew up on Powerpuff Girls and other McCracken classics.

Did we miss something on diversity?
