Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's not too much to worry about in this classic '70s cartoon. There aren't a whole lot of lessons to learn, and female characters are stereotyped in ways typical for the original era (and rarely appear in any significant or powerful roles), but the animated violence is mild and generally goofy. Nostalgic parents can enjoy this one with their kids.

Sexual Content

Occasional lacivious views of Rosemary's legs.

Violence

Hong Kong Phooey fights crime with a remarkably low level of violence, other than the characters spinning around in a swirl of fisticuffs.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Hong Kong Phooey never improves, realizes that he's incompetent, or credits his cat buddy for his work -- but good always wins out, and there's no real harm here. Female characters are stereotyped in ways typical to the '70s and don't have very proactive roles.

Consumerism
