Did we miss something on diversity?

Just the best

I honestly have never seen a cartoon of this quality, the plot and story are gripping and we’ve ended up watching it all as a family after our 7 yo introduced us. There’s almost no filler in 5 series, and there’s excellent depth to the character and relationships that is more reminiscent of an adult show, but actually great for children to learn that good and evil are the not simplistic groups most cartoons fall back on. There’s plenty of positive messages in there, but more than anything it’s just a great show. There’s not much to put you off, and our younger 4 yo also ended up watching most of it and loving it too. There’s a bit of cartoon violence in there, though it’s very muted for the most part, and although the plot will be beyond most very young children, it’s pretty accessible. It’s emotional in places, but it’s mainly the adults that suffer with that..!

Sexual Innuendo between Catra and She-Ra

This definitely has some strong sexual overtones between Catra and She-Ra. It was heralded as a huge win for LGBTQ representation for this reason. If you don't mind that, then it's great. Not sure if it's appropriate for very young children not ready for the sexual overtones. Or maybe it would just go right over their heads.
