This fascinating Animal Planet series is part nature show and part soap opera, providing an inside look at the drama, work and fun involved as these red-haired apes form a completely new kind of civilization.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that it's easy to develop an attachment to the hairy stars of this reality show, so sensitive viewers of all ages may find themselves very affected by the orangutans' emotional ups and downs. And you may find yourself starting the "birds and bees" conversation with young kids after references to sexual maturity and attracting a mate. But otherwise, this engaging series -- which captures some fascinating animal behavior and draws attention to endangered species -- is great family viewing.

Sexual Content

Occasional mention of the animals' sexual maturity and desire to attract the opposite sex.


Minor scuffles erupt among the orangutans for dominance within the society, but there are no lasting injuries. Some tense moments when the animals face threats from predators or intruders. For instance, an older, more aggressive intruder bullies the youngsters for their food supply.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Offers insight into animal behavior and celebrates the orangutans' loyalty to each other and the efforts they make to survive in their new home. It also demonstrates how different personalities can co-exist and thrive and puts a relatable face on the victims of wilderness extinction.
