Designed in the style of an early-1980s video game, this outrageous animated series centers on the gonzo programmers at tech startup GameaVision and their antiheroic struggles to get their ideas off the ground. Stoner lead programmer Dave pursues every crackpot impulse, whether joining an underground eating competition or teaming up with pro wrestlers, while neatnik best bud Jerry meekly plays along, and scheming new boss Mr. Larrity cries foul.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this mature, video game-centric animated series features characters using marijuana and engaging in other risqué behaviors. There's strong sexual innuendo, including visual references to sadomasochism and partially clothed characters shown in sexually suggestive positions (though there's no actual nudity). Language includes words like "hell" and "p---y" (stronger words are bleeped), as well as racial/ethnic terms and stereotypes (for example, one character is called "Black Steve") and occasional iffy references to religion. While the animation may appeal to younger viewers, the show isn't intended for tweens and is even an iffy choice for teens.

Sexual Content

Strong sexual innuendo, including references to masturbation, sexual intercourse, and sadomasochism. Terms like "gun shows" and "joy sticks" are used to describe male genitalia. Sexual behavior is occasionally shown, but it's blurred due to the animation format.


References to guns, knives, killing, and murder. Mr. Larrity enjoys hunting men for sport. Weapons are occasionally seen, guns are shot, and corpses are dumped, but scenes of bloody carnage are minimal.


Audible language includes words like "hell" and "p---y" stronger words are bleeped out.

Social Behavior

Lots of crude bathroom humor and racial and ethnic stereotypes. Occasional references to various religions, some of which border on offensive. Frequent references to homosexuality; at least one character is gay. Mr. Larrity's adopted son is Korean, "Black Steve" is African-American, and Mary is the only female programmer.


The show's theme song is Jonathon Coulton's "Code Monkey." Music from Tinhorn is occasionally featured. Lots of references to popular 1980s video games, including Super Mario Bros.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of alcohol and drug references. Characters are shown drinking and getting high. Alcohol, bongs, marijuana plants, and other drug paraphernalia are visible.
