So-so animated spin-off slingshots rude, slapstick humor.

Brings up “peg butt” with “strap on stick”

Season 3, Episode 2 Brings up “peg butts” with strap on sticks in its Pirate episode. Once in the beginning, and another with the yellow bird putting its butt on display and says, “Think it has to do with peg butts?” If I could contact Netflix directly I would share the screen shots.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Unfortunately, Angry Birds: Summer Madness slingshots flat storylines that may amuse kids but probably won't make the series one of their favorites. Twelve years after the release of the original app (and premiering the same week of a new "modern" Angry Birds app), this series attempts to keep Red and the rest of his bird pals in the cultural zeitgeist. While classic cartoons have a long history of bullies that delight in antagonizing other characters for no reason, it's a bit disappointing that this is a central theme in a series coming out in 2022. The birds are fun and silly in an abstract game where they try to cause destruction, but less great when their characters are fully fleshed out. Kids will probably enjoy other zany and nonsensical cartoons more than this lackluster franchise spin-off.
