Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's little to worry about here except for some mild cartoon peril -- including chase scenes, falls, and collisions (injuries are rare). There's also some light suspense when scenes cut to breaks in the middle of the action. Villains are mostly benign animal characters, so they probably won't frighten young viewers. It's worth noting that the show's lone female character, Gadget, breaks gender roles by being the team's pilot, mechanic, and science-minded inventor; her smarts usually save her friends.

Sexual Content

Both Chip and Dale have a crush on Gadget, but references to the subject are very mild, and she seems oblivious to the attraction.


Cartoon peril is played for humor: Characters crash into walls and walk away dazed, long-distance falls are cushioned by treetops, etc. Very occasional injuries are indicated by a bandage or crutch.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The group often refers to the importance of teamwork in solving crimes and overcoming challenges. The lone female character is hard-working and inventive, using her scientific and mechanical skills to design machines that help the team ward off enemies and escape tight spots.
