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.

It shouldn’t be in any kids section first of all. Any parent that thinks it’s “funny” or “my kids love it” , or “ you all are up tight” “it’s just a show aimed at the adult viewers”. Well then, shame on you. If it’s aimed at an adult audience then put the age suggested for this show. To me this show has no place to be in the kids category, if you believe others are up tight because we don’t want our kids to see a fish giving a blow job or learn the use of words like stupid and think it’s fine to call others stupid. Then you are the reason this society is weak and so pitiful because you kind of partners don’t understand the importance of manners, education, and respect. If you watch this show as an adult to begin with you have terrible taste.

This show has absolutely no substance, and is not made for a young audience. My seven and five year olds have seen a few episodes, and think the fart noises are funny, but in the last episode they watched, the human character said they did pole dancing until twelfth grade and was shown pole dancing on a rope. There was a lot of name calling (calling each other stupid, etc) as well. After that, I let them know this is not an appropriate show for kids and that they shouldn’t watch it anymore.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
