My children and I love this show. We all watch it. However, since we live in the US, it only comes on Discovery Kids. And they only play a few episodes. I looked on the internet and saw that they have well over 50, but on Discovery Kids, they only play about 15 and then cycle them over again.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (3 ):

There's much to like about Mystery Hunters. Mengesha and Broccolini are easy to relate to and do a good job engaging the audience while reporting their stories. The show's vibrant graphics and visual recreations are sure to grab young audiences' attention.

What's perhaps best about the show, though, is that kids come away having leaned something about past and present-day puzzles. Parents should note that since many of the episodes deal with the paranormal -- including the existence of ghosts, witches, and monsters -- very young children might be frightened by the series' reenactments.

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.
