Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

The gorgeously verdant backdrops -- the show is filmed in scenic locations across Ireland -- are the best thing about this nearly-too-mild show. The aim of WildWoods is purportedly to encourage kids to "disconnect from digital devices and reconnect with nature," but it requires more than beautiful backgrounds to drive this point home. Part of the problem is how few characters there are: just three, and one of them (the snail) is silent. Poppy, a tiny sugar glider, is pretty apprehensive when she meets Cooper the Sasquatch, and her cocky and often dismissive attitude toward him extends beyond this initial meeting, though they eventually share some sweet moments. Cooper is a newbie in the woods, and makes some understandable mistakes as a result, but he can also be willfully ignorant, as when he drags Poppy around all day in the rain because he loves it, despite her repeated protestations about how unhappy it's making her.

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.
