Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

By now, there are apparently no new funny home videos of animals to be had. Thus, the videos shown here tend to be not so much funny as merely tired. If you've seen one small dog bait a large cat or attack a remote control truck, you've seen them all. The voiceover narration device only adds confusion for the very youngest viewers, who might not yet have seen a dog so determined to hang onto a ball that he or she can be picked up that way and theoretically could have been mildly entertained.

The humor is below the Beavis and Butt-Head level, the host (Matt Gallant) is annoying, the videos trite. With hundreds of channels at your disposal, there has to be something better on.

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.
