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.

Honestly you could do worse..

When I first read reviews for this cartoon I was horrified. It sounded like adult crassness for young kids. People throwing around the word pervert, sexual, was a bit concerning. I decided to watch it and found these reviews are bogus. Yes there's butt humor but its done in the way so many cartoons neglect to try. Instead of the rear as a sex thing its something funny giggly like kids would think. The butt transplant episode is an honest portrayal of preteen humor. Its not sexual or perverted but just humorous. Theres a sense of innocence shows like the (groans inwardly) Regular Show forget. People are comparing the two unfairly. First off Sanjay and Craig never forgets on its on a kids timeslot. The only romance us childhood crushes and the subtly sweet marriage of Darlene and Vijay. There are things for adult's to giggle at (such as Remington Tufflips who brilliantly portrays every action movie trope with his) but they're more things that are nostalgia based. More *gasp* reminiscent of childhood. The Regular Show however veers into unsubtle adult humor from dont watch our crotches as we adjust our watches to a two girls one cup gag. Plus the blue hay and raccoon are adults who laze around and encompass the millennial brohood stereotype to a T without much brilliance or self awareness. How this fun filled romp of a boy and his pet gets more hate then lazy "men" being the ultimate protrayel of society's downfall I'll never know.
