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.

Fantastic show

This is consistently entertaining; we watch it again and again. It's such a unique show, with characters and themes unlike any to be found elsewhere. Unfortunately, the Debbie character is a bit of a 20th century stereotype of a teen girl. She does have her good moments, such as the Australian surfing episode, though.
