Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Star Blazers is a '70s cartoon about an intergalactic war that threatens the survival of the entire human race. The story is pretty heavy stuff for kids, what with people hunkering down underground waiting to see if radiation will penetrate Earth's surface and kill them all, so it's more appropriate for older viewers who won't be upset by the concept. Death, loss, danger, anger, and grief are common to the characters' experiences. Battles show spacecraft shooting at each other, many explosions, and some crash landings. On the upside, this is a real David-and-Goliath-caliber story of good vs. evil, so when victories come to the protagonists, they're hard-fought and worth celebrating.

Sexual Content

Men and women are attracted to each other, but it's more along the lines of men watching women's butts when they wear short skirts.

Violence

Bombs explode, affecting buildings and their surroundings. Spacecraft fire at each other, and some erupt into smoke. Others make crash landings. People's lives are constantly under threat, and many episodes refer to the potential annihilation of life on the planet. Some characters die, but it's not gory. Many wear guns holstered at the hip.

Language

Name-calling such as "idiot."

Social Behavior

Good and evil are clearly defined, and unrelated species band together against a common enemy. Self-sacrifice for the greater good marks one as a hero. Valiant forces battle impossible odds but refuse to yield. The loss of friends and family members is a present force, as is the impending doom of the human race as a whole. Characters experience regret, guilt, sadness, and anger but also the fulfillment of victory and camaraderie.
