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.

Great but for one episode

I'm 60 years old and I enjoy it it's really entertaining sometimes you can get a hint of adult humor but child would never know about it what episode is sort of bother me was a dog leaned over to hug his master and his master pushed him back across the couch sort of hit me wrong.and the farmer makes the dog do almost slavery type working occasioning instead of regular dog work so at times it doesn't really Seem good inspiration for kids to not use special the dog hug but for the most part it's just entertainment I even bought a stuffed Shaun the sheep doll I'm still a kid at heart
