Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bobby & Bill is an animated series based on a popular Belgian comic book series about a young boy, his dog, and his turtle. Some of the characters are mischievous, and there's some mild fantasy violence (falls, crashes, and animals flying through the air), but no one gets hurt. Potty humor includes some episodes with animals about to mark their territories.
Is It Any Good?
Pet lovers will enjoy this fun series about daily life of a young boy who is extremely close to his pets. Like any kid who loves his animals, Bobby seems to be able to understand them, but Bill, Caroline, and other animals can talk to each other, too. The result is a series of lighthearted mishaps, especially since the adults don't necessarily understand what's going on. Bobby & Bill is filled with lots of goofy moments that young kids will enjoy.
Did we miss something on diversity?
