Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the family in this long-running animated series lives in a lower-middle class Texas community where men drink beer, gossip, and watch TV. The humor satirizes and glorifies life in Texas and is geared toward adults. Hank does try to teach a moral lesson to Bobby whenever something goes awry, which could provide topics for discussion -- but there are better programs for kids to learn from. Teens with mature humor will enjoy and "get it."
Luanne is bursting with hormones, as are other cast members. Some innuendo and references to pornography.
"Jackass," "hell," "bastards," etc.
Hank is the upstanding citizen in his community, but everyone else is bound to misbehave. The characters' sometimes-questionable stances on issues are mined for laughs.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The men drink beer whenever they can pull the cooler out of the garage. Dale is always smoking. Illegal drug use is alluded to but looked down upon.
