Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

If there's a televised equivalent for "empty calories," then Maryoku Yummy is exactly that. The show is harmless enough, and there's a mild attempt to provide educational content aimed at young kids, but mostly it's shapeless animated blobs interacting in shrill voices that will slowly climb into parents' brains and begin eating away at their grey matter. Which is to say, kids might like it.

There's a merchandising program rolling out from show creator American Greetings, which also created Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake. Maryoku Yummy's quality aims at about that level -- entertaining for children, if largely devoid of any redeeming value. With the high quality and educational content in many great childrens' series airing today, it's hard to recommend Maryoku Yummy as a strong choice for kids.

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.
