It's a good show!

First of all, the animation is beautiful. It might be a bit crude with the jokes at some points, but the kids don't get it. There is no speaking except a "hyvää joulua" in one episode, which is fine. I really enjoyed watching it too. It's funny and employs a lot of slapstick and I for one enjoyed that. 10/10 would binge it and let my kids watch.

Pure garbage

Im sorry but this cartoon is a train wreck. The angry birds movie was pretty awful but at least had dialogue? This cartoon has no dialogue, the pigs are really gross and as you go through the series it continues to over-reach for a cheap laugh to the point that you can’t remember why you ever thought it was funny. Parents looking for a “safe” option to put on for young kids to keep them entertained- don’t pick this one. It’s coarse and crude and only has a few true laughs before they run out of jokes. But the kicker for me was when the “king pig” was on his toilet reading a “pig version” of a Playboy. Ears and all. Very obvious reference and seriously inappropriate... It’s a good thing I happened to be watching right then cuz it was a pretty short scene. Easily could have missed it. What are the producers trying to program into kids’ subconscious minds, showing stuff like that? There’s a lot of “oh but the pigs, they’re the bad guys, so let’s show them doing awful things” mentality. Also with things like being disgusting/stupid/drunk/out of control... and it’s beyond the point that nobody’s even laughing anymore. So lame. I’m never letting my children watch this again. My standards for kids shows have been pretty low in the past but they’re not low enough for this! This one can’t be trusted at all.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Fans of Angry Birds will delight in this gem of a series that doesn't overextend itself beyond the limits of the games themselves. The animation and scenery stays true to what you see on Angry Birds apps, and, as in the games, the characters communicate only with grunts and other noises. The result is altogether fun, providing tiny glimpses into the characters and their relationships but leaving enough curiosity that you want to come back for more.

Of course, given that most of the exchanges between the birds and the pigs are contentious in nature, there's natural concern in sharing it with little kids. Rest assured that the content errs on the side of caution rather than reality (pigs plummet from a cliff and walk away unscathed, for instance), and that the worst you'll see is an occasional bruise or scrape. Think of it this way: If your kids aren't bothered by what they see when they play Angry Birds, then nothing in Angry Birds Toons will upset them, either.
