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.

Don't listen to other reviews, this show is safe for all ages

Don't listen to the other reviews, I have seen all of the episodes so far with my kids and nothing is inappropriate. The other reviews are made by people who have a dirty mind and assume something by seeing something else, I bet they could find ways to show that Paw Patrol is inappropriate. Replying to another review, two people go into a room and you assume THAT? Really? You think that in a kids show? Everything in this show is just oggy chasing cockroaches because they are disturbing him, there are no innuendos whatsoever or bad content, all the characters are just friends and nothing is meant for adults in this. And there are no posters anywhere in this show that show bad content, most of the episodes don't show posters anywhere at all.

Oggy and the Cockroaches is a toned down version of Tom & Jerry

No, this is not Tom & Jerry, and it isn't quite as inappropriate, but this French knock-off, that premiered in 1998, is meant for older children. Young viewers may be startled by the suprising violence of Oggy using a flyswatter to damage his trio of adversaries. Yes, Oggy is made miserable by the trio, but he doesn't want to eat them; he just wants them to leave him alone. In a way, the Cockroaches are major stalkers. Younger kids are still better off watching this than watching Tom & Jerry.
