Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main character is on a constant search for the whiskey that his commanding officer and his prim island-mate hide from him. He's clearly not posited as a role model, though, and he reforms his ways. Even though this is foremost a comedy, it's set during World War II. The Japanese are the enemy, there's an air attack at the end, and at one point, the youngest little girl is in danger. Compared to war scenes in contemporary films, those in Father Goose are hardly worrisome.
Main characters slap each other. Japanese airplanes attack, the children are in danger, and there's a fire. Ms. Freneau is thought to be dead at one point.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Much of the plot and certainly the humor centers on Mr. Eckland's quest for whiskey and Ms. Freneau's persistence in hiding it from him. There is one scene in which she gets drunk (taking alcohol medicinally after getting a snake bite) and is later hung over.
