Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this hilarious show from the creator of the lovable Wallace and Gromit characters puts unscripted dialogue from the British public into the mouths of claymation animals, expounding on social topics like irksome neighbors, politics, and pet peeves. Families will find a lot to smile about here with great animation, virtually no iffy content, and some mild potty humor sure to please kids. The ironic quality of the comedy, based in dialogue paired with unusual orators (like hyenas whose interviews are disrupted over and over by giggling fits), will be lost on most kids, but they'll love the cute characters as much as parents will enjoy the show's superb wit.

Sexual Content

Infrequent mentions of sex changes or sexual appeal. Some very mild innuendo.


Not applicable


Some British slang.

Social Behavior

Dialogue occasionally includes mild jokes made at others' expense or that of the British royal family or other celebrities. Some potty humor: a dog urinates on a painting, a hippo makes gas bubbles in water, etc.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcoholic drinks (like Scotch) are very occasionally mentioned by name.
