Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this animated, comic version of Cinderella is based only very loosely on the traditional fairy tale. The characters are assorted animals who play cowboys and cowgirls, pirates, and Russian royalty; there's even a spiritually guided shaman. The story takes place in the "American West" with many action sequences, battles, and slapstick fights that use an array of weapons (guns, cannons, swords). The unredeemable villains are mean-spirited, and name-calling is constant. Cinderella's time-honored plight at the whim of her stepmother and stepsisters loses center stage to kidnapping, piracy on desert sands, and mustache-twirling villains. An English-language version of a French film.
Female characters are drawn with accentuated breasts, curves. A kiss.
Cartoon action throughout. Two villainous characters continually punch, whip, kick, and knock out both their accomplices and their enemies. There are several battles that use gunfire, cannons, swords, dynamite, knives, and fists. Several characters are kidnapped and held in captivity, where they're hung upside down by a rope for a period of time. A train is robbed with guns blasting. A buckboard goes over a cliff. A villain sinks to her death in quicksand. A ship catches fire and appears to trap those on-board.
Mean insults are frequent: "imbecile," "ungrateful little wretch," "useless idiot," "good-for-nothing," "you bugs," "dummies," "lazy," "stupid," and many more. A threat is issued: "I'll scratch your eyes out and cut off your legs."
Good defeats evil.
