The show works very well. Obviously, it's impossible not to compare it to Meerkat Manor. Fortunately, it's not a direct copy. LEMUR KINGDOM looks at two rival gangs rather than focusing on one. And humans are seen in this one, partly because the lemurs live so close to a tourist camp. But, ultimately, what makes Lemur Kingdom is the nature of the animals themselves.

This is compelling storytelling, with distinct characters (impressive, considering how alike they all look!). While the realities of foraging for food and dodging predators are emphasized in the narration, the fact that the actual violence isn't shown softens things somewhat. Sensitive younger viewers might find the cliff-hanger episode endings and certain lemurs' fight for survival a tad too intense, especially since this isn't fantasy. But parents can point out how humans are different from lemurs and take the opportunity to talk about what life in the wild is really like.

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.
