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.

Dislike the use of unnecessary, unkind language

I don’t think this show is appropriate for 5 year olds at all. I truly dislike the use of words and phrases like “stupid”, “moron”, “idiot” and “shut up” used throughout the episodes. I would not recommend this show. Very disappointed in Pixar/Disney.

"The Cover Up" ep is disturbing

We have been watching the new episodes and all seemed fine and dandy until we got to the episode named "The Cover Up". The story involves an incident that renders one of the inspectors “unconscious “ but for all intents and purposes the characters assume he is dead and treat it as if they are disposing a body and covering it up. I could not believe what I was seeing. This is extremely dark, not humorous and de values life in a way I found gut wrenching. In a world where we are promoting kindness, empathy and tolerance a show with this story line has no place .. especially from Pixar.

Too much violence
