See how one of the most popular sitcoms of all time began as New York comedian Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) leads a feisty foursome that also includes frustrated George (Jason Alexander), shrill Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and, of course, Kramer (Michael Richards), Jerry's eccentric neighbor with a knack for unique entrances.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this famous sitcom, which has become a permanent part of the pop culture lexicon, purposely portrays characters who are selfish, amoral, and not always likeable. Lying, cheating, and gossiping are frequent plot elements. Episodes often center on characters' dating dilemmas and include discussions of contraception, masturbation (though the word is never uttered), and personal habits. Teens and parents who enjoy smart humor will find much to celebrate in this series, though younger viewers may be bored or confused by the adult dynamics.

Sexual Content

Lots of discussion about dating. Plenty of innuendo and funny discussion of sex (sometimes veiled, sometimes less so). One episode centers on a birth control device; another on masturbation (though it's never referred to directly). One episode revolves around trying to guess a woman's name that rhymes with a part of the female anatomy (possibilities include "Mulva" and "Dolores").


Some slapstick pratfalls and physical violence -- nothing serious, and always played for laughs.


Words include "damn," "ass," "hell," "bitch."

Social Behavior

There's not a lot here in the way of positive messages. Characters are petty, selfish, and often shallow, and lying, cheating, and gossiping are frequent plot elements.


Some mention of specific brands, especially candy (Junor Mints, Jujubes, etc.). Jerry uses an Apple computer and is a breakfast cereal fiend.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasional wine drinking in restaurant or party scenes. Cigarettes appear in some episodes, though usually for comic effect (Kramer smokes and drinks at the same time in one episode). Speculation about drug use, but none shown.
