Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that even though this show is a cartoon, it's meant for adults, hence its place in the Adult Swim lineup on the Cartoon Network. Younger kids will miss the sociological context that is critical to understanding both the humor and the insight in this cutting-edge show. The most potentially eyebrow-raising part of the show is the language. In nearly every episode there are multiple uses of the "N" word.

Sexual Content

Nothing explicit, but the innuendo is raunchy.


Opening sequence shows the young character pointing a handgun at the screen. Many references to children getting beaten.


Many uses of the n-word; many bleeped words.

Social Behavior

While each episode has a moral, it takes an entire episode of sketchy behavior to get there.


More promotion of other TV shows than products.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Beer consumption mentioned, and allusions to drug use, but nothing explicit.
