age 10+

Fun show about teenage life suitable for preteens and above.

While 6teen does have a bit of an "edge" to it compared to what you might see on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network today, all it really adds up to is a few innuendos and plays on words. Nothing that a simple TV-PG rating can't cover. Some episodes of the show touch on issues such as breast size and menstrual cycles; however, these topics are handled in a matter that is properly reserved and appropriate for the preteen audience.
age 9+
Parents who give bad feedback cause it’s “inappropriate for kids”, be aware. None of the fresh TV animated shows are intended for kids. They’re all PG rated. They’re teen or adult animated. Kids won’t understand much in this show as it’s very grounded in realism with its writing and humor, compared to sister series Total Drama. The comedy is all from the character dynamics and dialogue. While this is a clean show in terms of language, (there’s like no profanity like “bitch” or “shit”, but there is the occasional “hell” or “ass”) compared to today’s adult cartoons (Rick and Morty, etc), there are some suggestive themes about teens, it is a teenage show after all. Lots of positive messages and lessons in this show and there’s some heart. Very underrated show.
