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.

Disgusting and sinister

No child should see this. It is disgustingly violent and it seems to be made intentionally to look like a regular cartoon, as this is how the episodes begin, but it gradually gets more and more violent until it becomes sickening. Parents who only watch for the first few minutes would be fooled.

This is so bloody and horrible! I watched it for a little bit, and I'm an adult, this made me disturbed. Using little animals in horrid brutal scenarios! All of this is bad, I wouldn't let my kids watch this! Just disgusting. I mean, I only recommend adults watching this, do not watch this if you're under 16 years old!
