What Is PAW Patrol
Fo the uninitiated, “PAW Patrol” is the popular Nick Jr. cartoon on nearly every preschooler’s watch list. The show follows a band of six pups named Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma, and Skye, each with their own specialty based on community figures kids love. Marshall wears a fire hat, Rubble a construction hat, Chase a police hat. Skye, in pink goggles, has the super ability to both fly and represent all females. (Down with the paw-triarchy, right, Skye?)
The pups do everything a preschooler wants to do. They rescue dinosaur babies, they wrangle mischievous kittens, they transform into a Sea Patrol to save a wiggling whale. As the seasons have progressed, the pups get more and more fun stuff to use. Suped-up backpacks (with tools like wings, baseball launchers, or water canons) are old hat by season ten. Now they also have a mission cruiser bus filled with personalized motorcycles and a Robo-dog.
As an added bonus for kids, unlike so many of their shows, it is free of virtually any educational value. There’s nary a number or a letter to be seen in this utopia of Adventure Island, just bumbling adults always in need of canine assistance. When the pups inevitably solve the problem with ease, they are much celebrated for their non-academic achievements.
But, for little kids who feel powerless in a big, complex world, the show’s got to make them feel great. You can use your strengths to make a difference, be appreciated, and yes, save the day. And as far as messages go, that’s one we need our kids to hear now more than ever. Maybe there’s something to learn from PAW Patrol for all of us.
Fortunately, those parents out there desperate to satiate the enormous doggie demand can do so without cable.
