A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
You don’t have to have a lot of money to be rich in family and friendship.
Positive Role Models
Characters don't always make the best financial (or other) choices, but they usually mean well. Jesus is wise, kind, and laid back.
Violence & Scariness
Mild arguments between family members. Drawn characters with sabers and other weapons are visible, and there's the occasional explosion (that leads to no harm).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bless The Harts is an animated comedy series about a financially challenged family from the South. Jesus is a contemporary (but respectful) character, and the other cast members, while not perfect, are ultimately good people. Some of the language is a little rough ("damn," "crap"), and there's some drinking. On occasion things explode or fall apart (no one gets hurt), and weapons like sabers and guns are on display. The Harts are loving and try to do their best under challenging circumstances.
Is It Any Good?
This lighthearted series offers some positive messages by featuring a family that's rich in love despite their financial woes. While characters can be sarcastic at times, the family members spend their time trying to understand or support one another, rather than attempting to tear each other apart. The show's rendition of Jesus is humorous and contemporary, but the conversations that take place are both respectful and kind. It may fall flat for those who prefer edgier animated fare, but Bless The Harts works if you're looking for some pretty mild humor.
