Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this violent, sexualized cartoon is in no way intended for children. It's a parody of a cartoon style that was popular in the late '60s/early '70s (particularly Jonny Quest), and as such will probably hold little interest for younger kids. The humor is usually either tongue-in-cheek or overtly absurdist, with clever dialogue and over-the-top situations. For grown-ups into smart writing, biting social commentary, and sharp animation, it's one of the funniest cartoons out there. Just wait until the kids are asleep.

Sexual Content

Bare butts, partial breasts, implicit (and sometimes explicit) sex.


Guns, bombs, swords, beatings, torture -- you name it. All animated, but still quite graphic.


"Damn," "hell," the occasional "son of a bitch," bathroom humor, etc.

Social Behavior

Brock is a bodyguard with no boundaries and a deviant sexual appetite; Dr. Venture is a manic depressive with a nasty disposition.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Brock always has a cigarette clenched in his teeth; Dr. Venture is addicted to prescription painkillers and drinks a lot.
