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 deserves better than two stars!

Parents need to know that although there is a fair amount of language and peril in this action toon, and the misfit pup and kitty duo may send iffy messages to kids, it is an excellent animated comedy for most viewers. New recruit Dudley and his highly trained partner Kitty often squabble during a mission at hand, but by dumb luck, the good guys usual cheat death. Of course, being a Butch Hartman toon, running gags are inescapable. Example: Dudley chews on his butt. Dudley is ditzy but optimistic and not bothered by Kitty's insults. Although brash and competent, Kitty is generally a good friend to Dudley, despite sometimes, his opposing nature gets in the way off her job. This is basically a series ripped off by Zootopia. The villians are mostly incompetent and prone to weaknesses, but are sometimes a source of comic relief. However, Snaptrap can be a bully to one of his assistants, Larry, at times.
