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’s ok, but has some emotionally un-intelligent components

I watched this a few times with my 6 and 10 year olds. It is somewhat enjoyable. Tonight though there was a scene where Dr. Bunsen Honeydew crushes all of Beaker’s precious belongings and Beaker doesn’t want him to and is visibly upset. This is very far from the original Henson skill

Fun update

Fun family show. Daft and silly. The modern update works well.
