A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Social-emotional skills and lessons are modeled.
Positive messages around doing the right thing and helping others.
Main characters are cats and other animals, so there's limited opportunity for realistic diverse representations. It's not super obvious which cats are boys or girls, but that said the girl cats are just as "super" as the boy cats. Human characters, when shown, are diverse across race, gender, and body type.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that SuperKitties is a preschool TV series about a team of superhero cats. There are some silly villains who express negative feelings toward the kitties, but they always make amends for their misdeeds by the end of the episode. Though the kitties' missions include mild adventure, the characters are never in peril. Otherwise, there's no worrying content in this purr-fectly adorable preschool series that models social-emotional skills, empathy, and teamwork.
Is It Any Good?
As a topical mashup of superheroes and cats (like preschool favorites Paw Patrol and Gabby's Dollhouse), this show covers familiar little kid subject matter. That said, the combination of adorable kittens, adventures, and helping others makes SuperKitties catnip for preschoolers. There's upbeat superhero music and montages reminiscent of The Incredibles. Grown-ups will appreciate that the cats model positive social-emotional skills; they try to connect with the villains and understand why they acted the way they did. While there's nothing terribly groundbreaking about SuperKitties, it's an upbeat series preschoolers will enjoy and grown-ups can feel good about.
