Graphic

This show is super graphic and full of raunchy jokes. It’s entertaining but definitely not for all audiences. Even adults might fine it a little much. Also, the kids are supposed to be in 7/8th grade!? Would make more sense of they were supposed to be in high school or college!

Welcome to the real world kids!

This show is officially rated 17+. This is for legal reasons. I'm very convinced that it is a healthy and great show for any kid who has hit puberty and does not live a completely sheltered life (some 11 year olds are not ready for it yet, but some are &that's why I recommended 11). If you are a die-hard religious nut then avoid this at all costs, but otherwise this show will bring you back to remembering your middle school years, and I firmly believe it's a healthy show for anybody who is and/or has gone through this. Please note that there is little or no "actual sex" between the characters (animated) on this show (contrary to what other reviews will lead you to believe), however, just like most young teenagers are always thinking about, the shows is loaded with "sexual situations", and/or "wishful thinking!". It brushes on drug use (and how things never actually turn out good in the end), takes many situations way out of proportion (as most teens do), and it's a cartoon so they go places (figuratively) that are beyond reality. If you start watching in the middle, you will likely be shell shocked at the intensity of the show and the situations they cover, but if you start from the beginning (season 1 episode 1) then it will all fall into place and make sense. If your kid is going to middle school and/or has started puberty and/or has an older sibling/friends (neighborhood kids) then this show will make allot of sense to them, and is a healthy way to learn about the things that rarely get discussed between kids and adults. Also, keep in mind there's alot of detailed nudity as well as explicit language in the show. The nudity is half educational, half comedic, and all within a realm of reality, and the language is likely not any more than tweens/teens hear or use when not in front of adults anyway. My 11 year old daughter has been binging it since we found it and loves it, and she said she definitely relates to it with what she goes through in school. My son (now 15) enjoyed watching too.

Show is for teens and adults

The show itself is funny but there are a lot of sexual references nudity and content that should not be on a Netflix cartoon it is very disturbing for some audiences and that’s the primary reason I put 17+

Understand what your kid needs to learn about!

I would say 13 is a good age to think about watching big mouth as that's when a majority of kids reach puberty! parents: if your worried about the sex in it (which is not graphic! naked bodies clearly performing sex with no genitals shown are included though) then maybe wait till their around 15 to watch this. although some parents are acting as if this is a disgusting porn movie made for kids this is not the case one little bit! its to teach your children about growing up. chances are your kids are going through the same things the kids in the show are at 13+ so just let it be! its funny, educational and a good introduction to more mature TV.

Well, for starters, this show is very graphic. It is very good for developing teens 14+ but not any younger. It has scenes that younger children/preteens may not know about yet. By 14, teens usually understand this show, and could relate. Swearing is fairly moderate, I'd believe that this isn't anything a teen hasn't heard. Overall good show, but not suitable for children/preteens.

Good for 15+

This is a good show for older kids. It deals with alot of older or adult issues and can help children with dealing with issues.

NOT for kids

Definitely not for teenagers! Especially the latest seasons are oozing with sex, it's extremely vulgar. I'm not a prude but it can even make some grown ups uncomfortable.
