TV: New Project Seeks to Bring Diversity to Children’s Animation

Big World, Little Om

Children’s animation is tragically low when it comes to diversity, not unlike the rest of the media landscape. There are a few shows like Steven Universe and The Legend of Korra, which strive to be more inclusive, but they’re the exception.

Now, however, there’s a new title on the scene trying to change things.

Big World, Little Om tells the story of Om and his two mothers. The series, if it becomes a reality, seeks to explore diverse issues families can face.

As the website explains: ‘These issues can be anything from gender or sexuality, same sex parents to having multiple parents due to a relationship splitting up. Or maybe a parent has died leaving the other as the main care provider. There are many issues a family may face whether they are social or political.’
