Unnecessary grown up humor

Once I heard "Let's go kick some Asteroid" from one of the characters I knew this probably wasn't the show for my 5 year old. I'll stick with the OG Unikitty.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (24):

The technicolor conglomerate of characters and scenery that awaits first-time viewers is a fairly accurate commentary on the show's overall content. Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty is so flashy and awash in the full-spectrum visual stimulation that one has to wonder if it's meant to disguise the vacuum of quality content within. Felicity's adventures with her friends are fun and imaginative, but they're not particularly clever, engaging, or instructive.

That said, it's always refreshing to see a character who defies the norms as Felicity's four-in-one nature does, and it challenges viewers' perception of the very existence of "normal" itself. She's a model of self-acceptance and of doing your best with your unique qualities. Even without the kind of magical abilities Felicity has, kids can relate these messages to their own experiences (possibly with some guidance from parents) and better identify what makes them special as well.
