Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this frenetic, 15-minute animated sketch series is part of the Cartoon Network's late-night "Adult Swim" block. While it's visually entertaining, it's violent and irreverent, and kids and tweens probably won't get its style of humor. Plus, many of the laughs are based on the fact that the majority of the characters are toys from the '70s and '80s; viewers who don't recognize that context will probably miss a lot.

Sexual Content

Frequent innuendo; toy couples shown making out/rolling around in bed and elsewhere; references to masturbation; "happy ending" massages.


Frequent, extreme cartoon violence. The toy characters are shot, stabbed, sliced in half, decapitated, run over, blown up, beaten, and much more. Cartoon gore is often shown. Episodes have had sketches involving serial killers, the world blowing up, and every other kind of mayhem imaginable. If any of this was live-action, it would be horrifying.


"Bitch," "hell," "ass," "sucks," "balls," "dick," etc. The strongest words are bleeped out.

Social Behavior

Characters constantly mock and fight with each other. Stars are spoofed relentlessly, family members battle each other, characters betray each other. It's all done on purpose for laughs.


Virtually all of the characters are toys and action figures tied into TV shows and movies -- albeit often those from the '80s that are more about nostalgia than marketing.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
