Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that HAPPYISH is a mature comedy aimed at middle-aged adults that uses frank, unbleeped language of every shade -- from "motherf--ker" to "p---y." Sex (or the absence of it) is a common theme, so you'll see some simulated sex acts (including the seduction of an animated Keebler elf) along with adult characters drinking and smoking pot. There's some cartoonish violence, too, but any blood is played for comedy.

Sexual Content

Frank talk about sex; simulated sex acts (including the seduction of a cartoon character); lingerie and some bare skin but no nudity; a couple watches porn together.


Violent acts played for comedy; some blood, but it's cartoonish.


Heavy usage. Unbleeped swearing includes "f--k," "s--t," "p----y," "prick," "dick," "c--k," and ¿"bitch."

Social Behavior

Major themes include the inevitable disappointment and hopelessness of adulthood; the pursuit of "happiness" is, at best, a fool's errand and, at worst, completely impossible.


Keebler plays a prominent role in the pilot; other brands include Samuel Adams, Coca-Cola, Facebook, and Twitter.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking. Some characters smoke pot.
