We love Pete the Cat in our house. We also love accepting others for who they are, whether we agree with their life choices or not.
Yes, Sally the Squirrel is Jewish and has 2 dads. That's not called an agenda, it's called representation. Parents who have their panties twisted so hard over this, do you honestly expect your child to only encounter straight nuclear families throughout their development? Families come in all varieties, and this episode demonstrates that wonderfully. Where is the rage about Gus the Platypus and his dad being in the country, but his mom being far away in presumably their native homeland? Oh no, they're immigrants AND breaking up their family unit! For shame, dirty fictional animal characters!! Callie the Cat has a handicapped cat dad in a wheelchair, and a prairie dog for a mother. Where is the rage over that? Oh, there is none? Why do you think that is? Maybe because criticizing families is a cheap, scummy thing to do, and to teach your kids how to do.
It makes no sense to have a fit over a cartoon character having two dads. Quit making it sound like they're trying to corrupt kids with this. If you're mad about that, you have to be mad about the other family dynamics represented.
It's sad that grown people can't see the message in this show about love, generosity and kindness. It's communicated so clearly for the kids. Your misplaced outrage unfortunately makes you miss the entire point of this lovely and endearing special. For the kids and adults who are open hearted enough to see the really important things in life, this is a joyous and delightful special to include in your holiday.
