Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Dick Tracy Show is a classic animated detective series based on the comic strip character of the same name. It contains lots of cartoon violence, including some gun wielding, but it's not really frightening. Cigarette and cigar smoking is visible, too. There are some stereotypical characters that many would consider offensive by today's social standards, but that were common for the time the show was produced. Parents might want to check it out before letting younger kids watch.

Violence

Some fantasy violence, but no one really gets hurt. Tracy uses a gun; villains also threaten people at gunpoint.
