Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss is a classic children's series featuring puppets based on Dr. Seuss characters. It offers lots of lessons about imagination, dealing with fears, friendship, and others that most preschoolers will easily understand, but older preschoolers may not be as interested in what is featured here.
Is It Any Good?
This mild series mixes stories, singing, and adventure as The Cat and his friends plan picnics, watch a local holiday pageant, and clean up after themselves. Adding to the fray are scenes that combine some 2D animation. But while the puppets feel familiar and there are lots of social and emotional lessons to be had, the overall show feels a little dated, especially compared to later film and TV versions of Dr. Seuss tales. Nonetheless, The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss is a lively, colorful show that will appeal to young children.
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.
