The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Educational Value

Viewers are exposed to the rituals of practice, rehearsal, and performance required in dance and music, and they learn some specifics about keys, patterns, notes, and reading music.

Positive Messages

Respecting boundaries, sharing space, solvin problems, not following the crowd to fit in, not over-scheduling yourself.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Adults are engaged and present; children are relatable and realistically drawn. They have daydreams and sometimes act selfishly but care greatly about others, getting along, and treating each other with respect. Much focus on the care and love of dance.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Part of a series.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What's the story?

Angelina (voiced by Charlotte Spencer) and her Mouseling friends tackle friendships in these five stories. In "Angelina Cheerleader," Angelina learns there's such a thing as being too supportive. In "Angelina's Hiccups," the Mouselings work together to solve the worst case of the hiccups in Mouseland. In "Angelina and the Must-Have Ballet Bag," Angelina learns why it's not always a good idea to follow the crowd. In "Angelina's Room," Angelina is torn when she loves having a guest but soon regrets giving up her sacred space. In "Angelina's Helpful Friend," Vicki overcommits herself to help out, then realizes she'll never be able to keep her commitments without some quick thinking.

Is it any good?

Enlightening as well as delightful, ANGELINA BALLERINA: PERFECTLY PINK takes on a slew of problems surrounding preschooler friendship, from the serious to the silly. The focus on dance, music, and the love of fine arts is always there, but each episode gives preschoolers creative takes on everyday problems. Whether it's learning that you can overdo your enthusiasm for a friend or that it's possible to overpromise in the name of being a good friend, each story shows problems being resolved enthusiastically and gently, giving kids a real-life script for approaching their own foibles.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about trying to do too much. Have you ever tried to do too many things at once? How did you get it all done?

  • Have you ever had to share your room or play space with a friend or brother or sister? What was it like? How did you make sure you had enough space?

  • Angelina really wanted the Eva the Diva ballet bag. Have you ever really wanted a toy all your friends have? Did you get it? Why, or why not? If so, was it as fun as you thought?
