I’m trying out a new series! If you’d like to participate, just comment down below. Mini-Review Monday is just that, a mini-review on a Monday. It can be on books, products, or TV shows/movies.
Today, I’ll be talking about one of the newest shows on Nickelodeon. The pilot episode came out late November, but the series officially starts in January. I watched the first episode and one of the upcoming episodes through my Xfinity On Demand account.
Stuart and his father move in with Ivy, Leaf and their father after Stuart’s mother goes on duty for the army. Stuart and Ivy’s father’s are brothers with very different approaches to parenting. Ivy runs a charity and Stuart is an inventor. Together, the family takes on some wacky adventures.
I’m so happy to see a show with strong black leads. Stuart’s father has a very dark skin tone, something that isn’t often seen on TV, especially in children’s television. It’s a great show, the representation is on point, and it shows black girl and black boy joy in it’s purest forms. It’s cute, creative and age-appropriate.
