Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a fairly innocuous cartoon about a superhero dog (originally owned by Superman) who, along with his coterie of companions, saves the city of Metropolis from an array of villains. Each half-hour episode is broken down into a pair of shorter stories, making this a good length for younger viewers; the action is suitable for the little ones as well, since the bad guys get theirs, but in a pretty tame fashion -- often tangled up in their own tails or scared right into a cage.

Sexual Content

Cartoon hijinks and exaggerated shenanigans, though no one ever really gets hurt; plenty of funny sound effects when villains get caught.
