It’s a good show but be aware of bad Language

It’s great for kids but there are bad words like ass, hell, jackass, dumbass, stupid exc so if you want to avoid those being repeated. just make sure your kid knows not to be saying those in public. I mean that’s kinda just in general but they might think if it’s okay for them to say it then I don’t see why I can’t.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (20):

Bee and Puppycat is the brainchild of Natasha Allegri, whose animation résumé includes the very popular Adventure Time. A product of a successful Kickstarter campaign, the show's quirky characters and off-kilter scenarios are similar to Adventure Time's, and there's an intangible whimsy that helps sell it to viewers.

There's little in the content to send up red flags for parents, save some mild name-calling and the occasionally suggestive body reference, but Bee and Puppycat is better suited to teens than it is appropriate for kids. Even adults will find this bizarre cartoon oddly enchanting, in particular thanks to the endearing codependent relationship between Bee and her unusual pet, as well as the fact that her charming personality overshadows her shortcomings and defies conventional definitions of what makes someone a likable role model.
