For most, this lack of acceptance can be best summed up in two words: Mrs. Dad.
This show called Octonauts premiered fairly recently on Disney Junior, based on a series of adorable books by some fantastic and inspiring artists that call themselves Meomi. It quickly became a favorite in our household. It looks great, it’s fun, actually interesting, and just downright cute.
