Corneil & Bernie: The Complete Series
Corneil is more than just a pet dog. Secretly, he's way smarter than even his human companions. In this delightful example of classic French animation, urbane Corneil just wants to settle down and enjoy his quiet, indulgent existence. But when Corneil's owners, John and Elizabeth, hire the less-than-brilliant Bernie to dog-sit Corneil, Bernie discovers Corneil's secret. Together, these mismatched pals find their way into and out of trouble.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although this show is rated as OK for everyone, the fast cuts and wild animation make it unsuitable for very young viewers. Almost every episode has storylines that include deception, blackmail, and bribery (albeit on a very mild level), which may make it confusing for less-sophisticated viewers. Corneil's determination not to reveal his true self to his loving owners, although a tired plot device, offers an iffy social message.
- Sexual Content
- Bernie occasionally gives buxom women some iffy glances.
- It's not exactly violence, but Bernie drags Corneil into walls and over stairs, crashes him into closing doors, etc. It's cartoony but it isn't very fun.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- Corneil is hiding his abilities from his owners. Bernie, as the only human who knows about him, blackmails Corneil in nearly every episode and deceives people into thinking that Corniel's accomplishments are his own. Sometimes he is rewarded for this, sometimes not.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Drugs like tranquilizers are used for (attempted) humorous mishaps.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
