Did we miss something on diversity?

Um... so... how is this PG?

So, while the violence is mostly slapstick and comical.... LoL... we get quite a lot of... mm how do you say... CREEPY FREAKING IMAGES! The girl that Shaggy likes... well let's just say... hEr EyEs gO gReEn, and she twists her face around, streching and pulling it... and it's just CREEEEEEPPPPYYY!!!! As that dude from that meme would say; "DONT LET YOUR KIDS WATCH THIS SHOW!" Language also enters the film occasionally. Short skirts and tops make their way into the camera. And some cheap laughs. That too. Cause I'm laughing so hard right now. Mm, another joke. Remind me to laugh, will ya?
