Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this show is mired in violent cartoon humor, questionable social behavior (including stereotypes), and strange gross-out punchlines that dilute the appeal of star Amanda Bynes. Kids will find this show very stimulating, though whether they're agitated or amused after watching it is something to observe.
- Sexual Content
- Some skits refer to nudity without sexual context.
- Cartoon violence is extreme. People are hit in the head with anything available (computers, chairs, baseballs etc.). Some extreme anger and lots of yelling can be scary for younger viewers.
- Words like "butt" and "pee" are commonly used. Using these words for gross-out effects, or to offend other cast-members, is also common.
- Social Behavior
- Some racial stereotypes. Disrespect of elders and making fun of people with accents is also disconcerting. Amanda's behavior is not exemplary.
- Lots of pizza consumption and emphasis on nice clothes, but nothing too pointed.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- There is a "stoner" character, who might be that way naturally, but it's not to tough to figure out why he acts stoned all the time.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
