Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that mild cartoonish violence -- some of which doesn't seem to have immediate, negative consequences -- is the only thing that makes Jim Henson's classic 1980s kids' series iffy for the youngest viewers, who might get the idea that it's OK to bop someone else on the head to make music, for example. Everything else about it pushes it well into the positive zone. The show also tackles big themes like inclusion, sustainability, and, to some extent, spirituality, but does so in a metaphorical way that subtly helps viewers see the ways in which the actions of one culture can affect another. Another plus? Parents who used to watch this show when they were young can have fun seeing their own children enjoy it.
