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.

Definitely adult animated cartoon.

This cartoon is filled with suggestive material. This one episode showed a naked guy acted really horny when talking to a mailman outside. Even contents relating to LGBT is included. There’s also macabre imagery involving decapitation and some swearing. Don’t set this in front of little kids.
