Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this cartoon about a child movie star references realistic Hollywood situations -- like the media exaggerating stories and the pressure to maintain a good public image. One storyline involves the young star preparing for an onscreen kiss -- he frets about his inexperience, fights his childish disgust, and ultimately prevails in an age-appropriate ending. His rival is a mean, competitive female child star who often tries to embarrass or discredit him. She, along with his playfully unappealing sister, are the show's main female characters. Potty humor, exaggerated yelling, and pratfalls make up much of the comedy. The show gently pokes fun at celebrity and the media, providing good entry points for parents to talk to kids about these subjects.
