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.

Stand by me

After the epic Lion King, Timon & Pumbaa got their own show. A shame to see this stand in the shadows of these days shows that became cult like Rescue Rangers. Lots of cartoon slapstick, and a little romance but it's more of an comedy driven show not to be taken serious like Gargoyles. Educational fun at times so if you can ever find the show in a second hand store have this in up in the classroom.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism

Hakuna Matata- What a Wonderful Show!

Oh, man! I used to watch this as a kid because it's my favorite cartoon of the 90s.
