Funny Most of the Time, But Not Always Family Friendly

This show is often laugh out funny, but most of the time it's just people getting hurt, which is often more painful than funny and entertaining. There's lots of males getting hit in the nuts and they don't bleep every bad word out, which is inappropriate for a "family" show.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Each episode of the lighthearted but predictable AFV spin-off offers lots of streaming, Instagram, and Facebook videos featuring a wide variety of domestic pets and wild animals behaving, well, like animals. The videos are organized thematically into a segments like "What Is That Dog Barking at Now?" and "Top Ten Times You Were Glad That Glass Was There" to give them some context, and to generate some humor. Added to the fray are people who feed, play with, or talk to the creatures, and how they react to their often unpredictable behavior. Animal fans will love it, but some may be sensitive to scenes of animals snapping at, biting, or attacking, despite the fact that it's normal animal behavior. Nonetheless, America's Funniest Home Videos: Animal Edition offers lots of animal-themed entertainment.
