Religious Edutainment

Religious Edutainment is that genre which seeks to teach children (and sometimes adults) the tenets and values of their religion. (Or at the very least, their care-givers' religion.) The name shares a root with a portmanteau of Education and Entertainment, and shares many of the same tropes.
