A Clip From The New "Proud Family" Reboot Is Going Viral Because Of Its "Truly Honest" Depiction Of Autism

If you grew up watching the original series, you know that The Proud Family has never shied away from addressing serious subjects. Whether it was race relations, religion, or bullying, the show always made sure to include a little bit of everything, for everyone.

And the reboot's no different. Recently, it got people talking about an episode where Oscar and Trudy learn that one of their twins — you remember Bebe and Cece — likely has autism. While it's a lot for them to take in at that moment, the show does a great job of conveying how many people have felt in that situation, and sharing how to best help and support a child on the spectrum.
