Violence & Scariness
No person-on-person violence, but animals frequently attack the human characters, violent events such as car wrecks take place, and BTG is willfully careless about the safety of himself and others.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Adventure Beast is an animated series that spoofs wildlife shows like The Crocodile Hunter or Man vs. Wild. Led by BTG, a representation of Australian author Bradley Trevor Greive (who also does his own voiceover), a small group of adventurers observe and interact with wildlife in each episode. The characters tend to get into difficult comic situations with animals, leading to injury and death, but the show also consistently features weird and interesting wildlife facts.
Is It Any Good?
A good satire lives and dies on the sharpness of its jokes; unfortunately, this series works incredibly hard to get laughs without a real idea of what is actually funny. Adventure Beast attempts to thread the needle between a spoof of high-octane adventure shows like The Crocodile Hunter and Man vs. Wild and an actual source of strange-but-true facts about wildlife. Instead of leaning into Bradley Trevor Greive's actual, interesting knowledge and experience, it makes a joke out of it -- and a dull one at that.
