As long as their mature

This show is very immature at its core a penis drawer and poop bandit. But the story is compelling and has you left with quotations demanding answers. It’s a fun crude mystery that’s actually pretty tame. If your kid is mature enough to handle the topics and see it for the story they’ll be engulfed in the mystery

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

It’s not bad

The only bad think is they draw penises and that’s about it . As long as your kid knows a fair amount of sex education then they can watch this .

Too much sex
