Several cartoons on Netflix do have characters of different backgrounds on the main cast. (Like in Kipo, She Ra, Voltron (not great but it's there).
I hate to nerd out, but all three shows you mentioned are produced by the television department of DreamWorks Animation, one of the two major animation studios currently owned by Universal Pictures (the other one is Illumination Entertainment who is a business partner of Nintendo right now). Most of DreamWorks’ shows require a Netflix subscription to watch, but there’s a chance those shows will move to the upcoming streaming service Peacock when that launches.
But yeah, we might see better representation of the LGBT+ community in the upcoming, definitive series finale of Will & Grace (produced by another affiliate of Universal) than we will in these animated TV shows that aren’t even on TV.
