Disney’s “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder” series made headlines recently over its reparations episode “Juneteenth” that generated outrage, but the new series was pushing extreme leftist culture on kids long before that.
The reboot of the popular 2001 “The Proud Family” animated series about an African American family was highly anticipated by fans of a show that’s more than two decades old.
However, it was clear from the very first episode of the first season of the “Louder and Prouder” series — that released on February 23, 2022 — the Disney+ show was different from the original. And after reviewing the entire first season, it’s now clear the show needs more than a PG warning as it pushes LGBTQ agenda, sexual innuendos, and more.
In the first of 10 episodes of the new show, we catch up with Penny Proud, the oldest daughter of the Proud family, dealing with puberty magically overnight and celebrating that her body has grown, especially her chest and backside. Penny is 14 and in middle school. In one scene she has a conversation with her dad that she’s “becoming” a woman and is ready to dance and date boys.
One of her pals, Michael, who previously dressed like a boy and liked fashion — now considered “gender fluid” — dresses like a girl, with feminine looking-clothes and pink hair in every episode. At the end of the first episode there’s a school dance and Michael is seen dancing a slow dance with another boy.

Viewers are also introduced to a new kid in the first show, racial activist Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, who is seen carrying a book titled “Race After Technology.” Maya is adopted and has two dads, one white/one black. She pushes race issues often.
During episode two, kids are introduced to the terms influencer, cancel culture, and the clenched raised black fist tied to Black Lives Matter. In the episode, the influencer is known as “MakeUp Boy,” a boy who wears lots of makeup and who’s hair and clothing are all feminine. Penny ends up becoming an influencer and gets MakeUp Boy canceled, becomes power hungry and starts canceling everyone, before she gets canceled.
In another scene in this episode, there’s even an implied sex romp between Penny’s parents after she surprised her folks at home during the day. Both Oscar and his wife Trudy, are seen with messy and desheveled hair while wearing each others clothing.
By the fourth episode, the LGBTQ agenda gets pushed with everyone dealing with the news that Maya has two dads and everyone talking about it online. The episode features rainbow symbols and rainbow hearts. The message pushed over and over again is “what’s the big deal?” and “No one cares” about this.
The hashtags shared in the episode are “#Dads are the new moms,” “#Love Wins,” with messages like “What does it matter tho” and “Nobody cares literally nobody.” There’s language like “my partner and I” and “my husband” coming from one of Maya’s dads.
In one moment, there’s a slow drawn out animated scene where Maya’s two dads come together and share a long kiss. The final lip-lock isn’t shown on screen, but the kissing sound is heard and the scene opens back up with the two lips coming apart after the dads kiss. And when Penny’s dad, Oscar Proud, is uncomfortable he’s made to feel bad.
In episode seven, Maya goes off and rants about how college is basically a “glorified plantation,” and episode five features rapper Lizzo and the term “twerk” is introduced.
In February of 2022, creators of the new series, Bruce Smith and Ralph Farquhar, didn’t hide the fact that this time the Disney series would focus on a cultural and a political agenda.
“Well, we knew from 2001, when we first started doing the show, that maybe the two biggest things we could see that changed, especially as it related to young people, was the emergence of social and gender and identity issues,” Farquhar explained told Entertainment Weekly.
“The LGBTQ community rising in prominence and demanding its rightful recognition if you will,” he added. “And so that’s where we knew we had to take the show.”
And it’s clear from some of the parent reviewers over on Common Sense Media the additions of these leftist agendas in the new show were a bridge too far for their children.
One wrote, “With the first 5 minutes, I was feeling uncomfortable with my child watching this show. I grew up watching the Proud Family, but the first scene Penny wakes up and is noticing her larger chest and bottom. After that initial scene Oscar goes on to calling names like ‘idiot’ and Suga Mama comes back from a trip. When the bag man is dropping off her belongings he says ‘Thank God for tequila.’ The references are too much for my eight year old.”
Another shared, “Racist garbage. Shows you why Disney lost $120 billion last year. Disturbing that they are trying to indoctrinate children.”
While another parent wrote, ” I’m a helicopter parent so of course I came on here. And it’s a good thing I did, because when I saw the [scene] in episode 2 where the mom and dad’s clothes are ‘weird’ I had to question if this is a good show for my kid.”
“It is better than ‘Diary of a Future President,’ but it’s kind of confusing for my 8 and 5 year old,” the person added. “Especially because Penny is a girl and my 8 year old has yet to learn about dating and periods and puberty….”
Season 2 of the Disney+ series came out February 1, 2023. We will be sure to watch and let you know what agendas are pushed in the new season.
