Grade school amoeba friends are silly, so-so role models.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids will love this show's funny conceit (all the characters are cells) and slapstick jokes. They'll probably also learn a little something new about cell biology through Squish's mad-scientist friend, Pod. However, while Squish and crew aren't awful, adults may find themselves wishing for better role models. There's a fair amount of meanness between characters. It's not over the top and is probably a realistic reflection of kids' experiences, but parents may not want to plant any additional seeds in their kids' heads.

The characters do eventually learn their lessons, but each iffy choice takes a while to resolve and so it's more likely kid viewers will remember the negative stuff and not the positive takeaway. Peggy might set off some grown-up feminist alarm bells; she's the show's only main female character and is very stereotypically girly, appears less smart than the boys, and is one-dimensional.

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.
