Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Hero of Color City is similar to Toy Story, but instead of toys coming to life, it's crayons. The movie has lots of positive messages about overcoming your fears, believing in yourself, helping others, and working as a team. There are a few scenes in which the crayons are in peril -- a dinosaur wastebasket comes to life, a character is dropped off a tall building (and caught!), the crayons take a boat down the "scary narrows" and encounter a spooky fog and threatening voice -- but nothing overly scary. Younger kids will like the colors and the mild adventure, but the story might not be exciting for older kids or their parents.

Sexual Content


A dinosaur wastebasket comes to life. Yellow is grabbed by the king and taken to the top of a tall building. He drops her; she's caught by a paper plane. The crayons are warned that if they don't get back to Ben's room before he wakes up, they'll be lost forever. The crayons take a boat down the "scary narrows." They encounter spooky fog and a voice that says, "go back." The characters in the Land of Unfinished Drawings seem aggressive at first but turn out to be misunderstood.


A few insults, including "creep," "jerk," and "poopy pants."

Social Behavior

Overall themes of conquering your fears, believing in yourself, and trying new things. The crayons learn that they must help those who are helpful to them and not to judge someone by their appearance.
