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.

Program not suitable for pre-school children or elementary age

Common Sense Media continues to take down this post, but it is the truth and is not hate speech whatsoever. I know because I work for the television company that airs this program. While this show may have educational value, it is not right to target 3-6 years old for this show. While other kids programs subtlety place diverse characters interacting with the main characters in the show, this one does not. The diverse characters in this program draw attention to themselves (lesbian couple referring to their mate as their wife) in a way that is forced. You do not see other parents refer to their spouse on this show in that manner. Some PBS stations are refusing to air this show due to it not meeting their community standards. This program was funded by the Department of Education using taxpayers dollars. Parents need to have a conversation with their child about LGBTQ+ characters before allowing preschool-aged children to watch this show. PBS is over-promoting this show compared to other fairly new PBS Kids shows.
