The Cartoon Network show We Baby Bears is set to use characters who identify as nonbinary and use they/them pronouns in a new episode airing on Saturday.
The animated episode, titled Polly’s New Crew, will feature gender-neutral characters – a box and a parrot – in the network’s attempt to be inclusionary. The show is intended to be viewed by children over the age of six.
In the trailer for the kids show, one character says: ‘I am the great Winnifred, she/her. Actor extraordinaire!’
At which point, one of the bears introduced a nonbinary character named Box.
The bear says: ‘Our crew also has a new addition. They use they/them pronouns, and they make an exceptionally good quiche!’
