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.

First few seasons are great

The first few seasons of this show are great -- Stephen Fry narrates, the stories are sweet, moderately paced, short, and fun, not at all frenetic and annoying. The later seasons get kind of weird, move too far away from the basic interpersonal conflicts, and have a different (and rather annoying, IMHO) narrator... and have brought in a new character. Normally I'd be happy that they evened out the girl-to-boy ratio of the characters by bringing in another girl, but since I don't like these later seasons I was hoping to secretly swap back to the older ones... but with the new character (who my son adores), I fear he'll notice if I make the change. Drat!
