POSITIVE ROLE MODELS/MESSAGES: 8/10. Animals are kind/care for each other and the enviornment.
EDUCATIONAL VALUE: 4/10. Kids who watch learn to protect the enviornment.
VIOLENCE: 6/10. Brief but strong off-screen animated violent content. A deer is shot offscreen, only a gunshot is heard. Then, the deer's body is shown, dying. No blood visible. Two other animals are shot off-screen, gunshots are heard. Their bodies are not shown. There is an animated forest fire, which may be intense for kids under age 5. In the fire, a few trees are burned down.
SEX: 3/10. Two deer have babies.
A classic! Must watch sometime in your life! Fine for mature 5-year-olds and up. My MPAA Rating: RATED PG FOR MILD CARTOON VIOLENCE, AND SOME EMOTIONAL MATERIAL.
