A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
This is mostly for entertainment purposes, but on one planet, there's a song about shapes.
The story values cooperation, courage, curiosity, and teamwork, as well as strong family bonds.
Positive Role Models
Pinkfong and Baby Shark are brave as they visit each planet looking for the star's missing pieces. The two main characters always say thank you when they're helped.
The series features a variety of animals and a multi-generational family. A culturally insensitive scene features characters singing "La Cucaracha" (with new lyrics) while wearing sombreros.

Violence & Scariness
Mild scares, such as when the characters encounter "scary" alien beings before they befriend them, like the dinosaurs or the zombies and ghosts on Halloween planet. The dinos are quickly revealed to be kind, and the Halloween creatures are spooky at first but still friendly. Occasionally Pinkfong and Baby Shark tremble in fear until it's clear they're safe.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pinkfong and Baby Shark's Space Adventure is an animated children's film that follows Pinkfong the fox (voiced by Colleen O'Shaughnessey) and Baby Shark (Connor Andrade) as they travel from one mystery planet to another. They'r looking for pieces of Pinkfong's special star, which he needs to lead his spaceship home. Every visit is its own little story, capped off by musical numbers including the ubiquitous "Baby Shark" song. Families with preschoolers who are familiar with the Pinkfong show and characters will know the format and its use of non-rhyming songs and sing-alongs. Expect a few mild scares as the characters visit different planets: a big lion roars, and there are spooky zombies and ghosts, dinosaurs, etc. Occasionally Pinkfong and Baby Shark tremble in fear until it's clear they're safe. A culturally insensitive scene features characters singing "La Cucaracha" (with new lyrics) while wearing sombreros. The story promotes teamwork, curiosity, and courage, but this isn't an educational movie; it's all about the repetition of the beloved song, cute characters, and a feel-good story about finding your way home.

Is It Any Good?
There's no doubt that anything involving Baby Shark will amuse little kids, but this movie is empty entertainment without much to offer except the addictive song on repeat. Pinkfong and Baby Shark are cute, but the special planets they visit, the repetition of the main song (again and again), and the thinnest of possible plot lines will prove underwhelming for adults. Little ones may be enthralled by the signature songs and the bright colors that permeate every planet, but the vignettes don't work well together as a single movie. It's strung together as one story because of the missing star pieces, but families could easily just watch a couple of planets at a time to stretch out the viewing experience.
