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.

Ugly animation and why doesn't Dog talk like the others?

The animation is really really bad. I have a few PBS "mixed series" DVD's that include this show in it's line up since our local PBS doesn't air this so I haven't seen many episodes but I totally understand why this isn't shown on my local station. The animation is very lackluster. Some of the character models are bad. Most of the animals like sheep, frog, and duck are capable of speech and yet dog just barks. Though dog just barking might be for the best because the voice acting is absolutely wretched to the point that it is probably worse than the animation which is bad enough. My toddler screams and cries when this comes on the DVD so I have to fast forward to Caillou because Caillou at least bored her to sleep.

Please avoid

This show is terrible. It teaches nothing and its very boring even for small children, not to mention the stupidity of the characters always losing the letters. Even the first episode was about them chasing O. This show is not good for kids. Show them 90s Raggs instead.
