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.

Not good.

Very obnoxious. Filled with potty-humor. A lot of mischief and undermining authority with few positive lessons or take-aways at the end. This show has not been a good influence on my kids and is no longer allowed in our house.

Funny for kids of all ages!

My boys were laughing and so was I! Great humor. Fantastic animation.
