Sailor Moon dishing out advice to y’all. Play it in the background and absorb some life lessons.
If you never watched the DiC dub, then you might not know about Sailor Says. It was a unique segment that used episode footage to teach kids some very overt lessons, but really, behind all the cheese and silliness, there are a lot of beautiful things that people of all ages should hear, including:
- Don’t stick around in a bad relationship
- Food positivity
- Everyone has strengths and weaknesses
- Do the right thing even if it’s tough
- Be a supportive but honest person and friend
- Be Good
The reason these are American-dub exclusive is partially as a result of an Edutainment mandate, the Children’s Television Act. (One of the things they sought was “general audience/entertainment programs that serve children’s educational and informational needs.”)
It explains intentionally/directly educational shows like Carmen Sandiego or Captain Planet and their “Planeteer Alert” end segment, but also why shows like Sonic the Hedgehog and also included tidbits like Sonic Says.

But seriously, watch all the Sailor Moon ones because they’re great.
