I loved Saturday morning cartoons as a kid and now that I am a parent I was hoping to pass that tradition onto my kids. The trouble now is that we don’t get regular tv and that many current shows don’t have strong female leads or even any female leads (which guiltily I didn’t always notice till being a parent; note to self = check privilege). Not something I want my kids to see in their formative years.
Thankfully, my wife found this great show on Netflix by a French producer that has been dubbed and released to the American audience. The show features two tweenish kids (Marinette and Adrien) who are secretly super heroes (Ladybug and Cat Noir respectively) trying to save Paris from the episode baddie, while also maintaining their secret identities and their school lives. It is frankly adorable and I actually enjoy watching it with the kids.
