Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that although this series about a boy who likes to make movies with his best friends is animated, it often explores relatively mature topics about families, marriage, and divorce. There's not too much in the way of swearing, sex, or violence, but the jokes and themes might not be very entertaining for young viewers. The main character, Brendon, lives with his single mom, while his friend Jason seems to have little contact with his parents. The kids themselves must often bend a few rules in order to plan and shoot the scenes for their movies.
Moderate cartoon antics that fall short of actual fighting.
Characters call each other "stupid" and say "shut up" and "ass." Some references to bodily functions, as characters sometimes "gotta pee" or throw up.
The series portrays Brendon's filmmaking efforts as worthy and artistic ventures, requiring creativity, imagination, and focus. That said, it also delves into complex family issues, touching on divorce, absent and neglectful parents, and the complicated relations within blended families.
Some episodes have references to well-known movies.
