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.

Mostly the right message

Overall I think this is a decent show for children. However there is a portrayal of Dave the blue Panda that I strongly disagree with. The portray Ruff Ruff and Tweet and intelligent and energetic, but aside from the occasional smart moment, the show portrays Dave as a lazy, fat and unintelligent being that only thinks about eating and sleeping and someone without a brain. And the show pokes fun at Dave in every episode. Not the message I want to send to my boys. I know it's a show for very young children and they probably don't pick up on such a detail, but I feel it's still a message that could stay with children over time. Please tweak the format and the show will be much better.
