Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this spy spoof, although animated, is definitely aimed at mature viewers. The agents thrive on petty office politics, drink heavily, and pursue casual sex rather than supervillains. There's a good bit of swearing (including "s--t") and several animated sex scenes that feature partial nudity. Characters also carry a range of weapons and get involved in gun battles and fistfights.

Sexual Content

Many references to sex, and several animated sex scenes that include partial nudity. Some female characters wear skimpy outfits.


Some animated fight scenes -- including fistfights and gun battles -- but no blood or gore, and few injuries. Some characters carry lots of weapons, including guns, spearguns, poison darts, and daggers.


Some swearing, including "s--t," "bitch," "fricking," "ass," "douche," "bastard," "butt," "crap," and "screw."

Social Behavior

The people at the show's fictional spy agency seem more interested in petty office politics and advancing their own interests than in doing their jobs.
