My kids (8 yr olds) have been watching this for 2-3 episodes now and while I am not a huge fan of potty humor, I know there are far worse things. This seems cute on the surface, sort of a modern day Alf. Adventures of a boy and his sarcastic puppet brother...lots of slapstick antics (flying in and out of windows, tackling bad guys, etc) are possible because of Crash being a puppet rather than a person.
However, last night we watched an episode that has caused me to not let my kids record this anymore. In order to get out of an annoying relationship with neighbors they boy, the puppet and the mother go to have a 'breakup' conversation. When the neighbos don't quite get the message Crash destroys an entire studio worth of their handmade pottery--in front of the mother--and to their laughter and delight. I kept waiting for the show to wrap up with an apology, a lesson or some sort of moral to the story but it didn't happen. There are no consequences and he is hailed as the hero for taking care of the problem. This is NOT a message moral parents want their kids to learn. Very disappointed and no longer leaving this show on my approved list.
I think its a really funny show and my 6yr old son LOVES it. We watch it together. It reminds me of some of the old Muppet Show sketches at times, with mild puppet 'violence' but it's really just silly physical gags. All in all, I think it's a great new show for Disney and am happy to see something for younger children that isn't animated.
