THIS PROGRAM TEACHES CHILDREN:
What prejudice is. What is wrong with being prejudiced. How to avoid being prejudiced. The benefits of being open to different kinds of people.
Episode #5 in this series is about prejudice. Groark and his friends are planning a birthday party, when Burna tries to convince the others not to invite the new kid in school because he is "different." But when Groark learns that Burna doesn't even know the new kid, he turns to a group of real elementary school children for a lesson in prejudice. They discuss how people sometimes treat others unfairly because of differences like size, age, gender, race, ethnicity and national origin, and why it's important not to pre-judge people. Groark takes this lesson in prejudice back to his friends and they decide to invite the new kid.
