This fairytale-themed special is a delightful episode of Super Monsters; grown-ups will appreciate the clever retelling of classic tales, and kids will enjoy seeing their Super Monster pals getting to appear as different characters. The music is fun and upbeat, and in typical Super Monsters style, the visuals are wonderfully detailed and colorful. This special is less effective at imparting social-emotional lessons than other Super Monster episodes and mostly plays the "moral of the story" concept for laughs. Overall though, it's a lot of fun and a great way to introduce young kids to fairytales without all the scary bits.

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.
