Cartoon Network has received criticism after an animated show aimed at children barely able to walk introduced new non-binary characters and had them say their pronouns, including some using “they/them”.
The cartoon, called We Baby Bears, has produced a new episode set to air during ‘Pride’ month titled “Polly’s New Crew”.
“I am the great Winnifred, she/her. Actor extraordinaire!” one character, that looks like a butch cat and dances around a pole, states.
One of the bear characters, voiced by little kids, states “Our crew also has a new addition. Meet Box!”
“They use they/them pronouns and they make an exceptionally good quiche!” the bear states.
The episode was advertised by Cartoon Network as featuring a “discussion about pronoun usage.” This is for little kids. pic.twitter.com/CCG1O8DaIs
