Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is one of the many cartoons in which the rogues are smart (well, at least one of them is) and the cops aren't. Top Cat always beats the police in any contest of wits, although he never actually gets the riches, fame, or cushy home he's looking for. Top Cat is one of those characters -- like Yogi Bear, Daffy Duck, or even the Lucky Charms rabbit -- whose appeal lies partly in his constant, fruitless striving. Plenty of very mild slapstick cartoon violence and dated situations, but not much else to worry about.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Some minor classic slapstick cartoon violence in the Three Stooges vein -- friends whack each other over foolish comments, fingers are caught in mousetraps, etc.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

There's certainly no intentional social message here, but the "good guys" are the gangland cats, and the "baddies" the cops, although it all plays out in a very sedate manner. Some character stereotyping typical of the original '60s time period.
