The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that School of Roars is a seven-minute show that provides a gentle way to introduce difficult subjects (Daddy being late, stage fright, etc.) that young kids may experience. The parents seem to be working parents, and the monsters seem to be diverse, with some characters having different accents and one family only having a mom and no dad.
What's the story?
SCHOOL OF ROARS takes place in a monster preschool and stars five endearing young monsters, Yummble, Wufflebump, Meepa, Icklewoo, and Wingston, plus one warmhearted teacher, Ms. Grizzslesniff. Each episode explores a social-emotional theme that is central to preschoolers (i.e, waiting for parents, performing on stage, show and tell, etc.). Monster parents are seen at the beginnings and ends of the episodes for a happy reunion with their kids.
Is it any good?
This sweet animated show is both entertaining and visually appealing. The characters are adorable young monsters who all love to "roar," which human preschoolers can certainly relate to. Each episode of School of Roars hits close to home with a relatable situation and characters, and kids will see how the monsters deal with tough situations. Plus, the entertainment value is high with fantastical school events like dragons hatching from eggs and mischievous monster pets.
