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.

So good

This is an amazing family friendly show, good for all ages. It is easily one of the best family friendly shows out there, Gordon is nice and affectionate with the staff and owners. It always ends nicely, and there is no violence or swearing! NINOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
