Is It Any Good?

If you're looking for substantial content that will make your family see the world and its animal inhabitants in a new light, this probably isn't the show for you. While you won't soon forget the pets -- and their often eccentric owners -- this series' sole aim is to entertain viewers with animal oddities.

Some of the stories have a heartwarming side (the world's ugliest dog stars in a book that reminds kids to look past appearances, for example), but overall you'll be struck by the owners' lavish pampering and our society's infatuation with unique animal tales. That said, there's nothing in the show that makes it worrisome for older kids and tweens, so it's fine for family viewing.

Did we miss something on diversity?
