Tequila and innuendos

With the first 5 minutes, I was feeling uncomfortable with my child watching this show. I grew up watching the proud family, but the first scene Penny wakes up and is noticing her larger chest and bottom. After that initial scene Oscar goes on to calling names like "idiot" and Suga Mama comes back from a trip. When the bag man is dropping off her belongings he says "Thank God for tequila." The references are too much for my eight year old.

This show is important

Let me preface this by saying there are innuendos in this show, some sex jokes some alcohol refrences. It's like Hey Arnold in that aspect. They will go over kid's head. What won't go over kids heads is the material taught in the show. It tackles the LGBT community, Racism, Fomo, Tech all in a developmentally appropriate way. This show is what the world needs right now and I highly encourage you to let your children watch it.

Disney+ just got even better with this authentic, relevant, and seriously amusing reboot. The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder will provoke heartwarming nostalgia for parents who grew up on Penny Proud and her friends and family, while inspiring a new generation with life lessons sprinkled with hilarity (as opposed to after-school special sappiness). The consistent animation style, the hip-hop and R&B soundtrack, and the modern-day slang and jargon maintain the vibe of the show and solidify its authenticity. Yes, stereotypes abound, but they compel viewers to reflect on what they believe and to have the discussions as a family about people's experiences and the world around us. Like its predecessor, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder offers the representation that was lacking for so long in television, specifically in cartoons -- displaying a Black family in all of its animated realness, for the world to root for.
