It's a kids Show
18 January 2016 | by patjmurrayusSee all my reviews

David Bythewood, its a kids show, nothing more,nothing less, you are seriously reading way too much into the show. I have a child of my own and he enjoys The Lion Guard and I think, if you have children, they won't be reading too far into it as you are right now. On another note, why does the show have to be based on lions and their actual behavior in society when it's a kids show? Do we need to portray the fact that KION would be eaten because the male pack lion eats their own male cubs! Or the fact that the entire pack is consisted of mating with their own family members. On top of the fact that lions hunt live prey. Why would they show that on a kids show? yes hippos are aggressive in real life but again, as a Kids show, there would be no need to show aggression. Kids don't want to see animals eating each other, animals being aggressive. Kids shows are to teach a lesson, to put them to bed, or to entertain depending on age. Hyenas are depicted as bad because in your so called favorite original lion king, they are bad and work with scar. The show is called lion guard and is based around kion and his friends. There is no need to have a backstory of how female hyenas stay back to raise their young. And as shown in the show not all hyenas are bad since kion made a friend with a female hyena.. by the way poombah is spelt Pumba.... simba obviously said not to have any other species other than lions in the lion guard because it's called the LION guard, but it is in no where racism considering kion create his group with different species of animals.... the music is of course never going to top the lion king but why does it need to? It is geared towards sound and easy words for little kids. It is on Disney JUNIOR.
