Positive Messages
Positive Role Models & Representations

Charlie and Eddie sometimes disagree, but they are close brothers. 


Occasionally the gang argues about what animals are causing problems and the ways to go about catching them. Most of the animals are trapped safely and relocated, but smoke is often used to get animals out of their hiding places, and water sprinklers are used as repellants. Guns and bullets occasionally visible. 


No cursing, but one episode includes a reference to being "peed off." 


Serves a promo for the animal removal service featured.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Occasionally bars are visible, but drinking really isn't. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Beaver Brothers is a family-friendly reality show about a Canadian animal removal team that's mild enough for tweens. It contains a few images of guns and bullets, but there's little violence here. On occasion there is some arguing, but most of these are more humorous than angry. Sometimes bars are shown, but drinking isn't visible.

What's the story?

BEAVER BROTHERS is a reality series featuring a duo of brothers committed to eliminating local animal nuisances in the Canadian community of Pomquet, Nova Scotia. From removing beaver dams that cause house floods to smoking out groundhogs from cow pastures and chasing down errant porcupines, brothers Charlie and Eddie Landry are the folks who will get the job done. Joining them is Mike MacIsaac, their protege. The job isn't without its dangers, but the gang manages to have lots of laughs, too.

Is it any good?

Beaver Brothers offers a humorous look at the world of animal removal in a community where animals outnumber human residents. Most of the funny moments come from the duo's fun-loving, and sometimes quirky, personality. 

Animal lovers might like watching the various critters running around, but overall, there's not a lot of drama. Sometimes It seems a little contrived, too. But if you're looking for some lighthearted reality fare, this might fit the bill.
