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.

So good!

Sesame street for the 21st century. Such a shame it had a short run. Great life lessons, interesting characters and not completely boring for the parents to watch either.

Stupid and cringe worthy modern Pee Wee Herman clone

This show is annoying and the DJ Lance guy reminds me of Pee Wee Herman the way he behaves. Plus the show is loud and did I mention how creepy alot of the characters are? The only one that is actually "cute" is the blue cat monster thing but she sounds annoying when she talks. The only good thing I can think of to say about it is at least it had some good celebrity cameo appearances (like Sugarland and Green day) but even that is watered down to horrible sing along that make Barney and Friends music look like MTV music award material by comparison. Sure it's "educational" but it's value is lost to how disturbing and unsettling the way the subject matter is presented. My much younger cousin did the opposite of anything this show taught because he didn't want to be like the "creepy man and his friends" on TV. Don't bother. Glad it was finally cancelled.
