Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

The fight scenes are silly, brief, and not especially violent. But guns are prevalent, and sometimes explosives blow up in a villain's face. And while there's great camaraderie among the group, this show doesn't pretend to impart any lessons, moral or otherwise. Gender and racial diversity are nonexistent. This is pure fun, circa 1966.

When the heroes prevail (they always do), justice is served up with a little humor. For example, when the Diabolical Dauber is caught, he is sentenced to hang…on the wall for 20 years (flash to the villain caught in a picture frame). "I've been framed!" he complains.

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.
