Utterly horrifying

My fishing rod is in therapy as a 36 yo for seeing this cartoon. Children are shown eating Reeces Puffs in the Chuck E Cheese playplace, Shrek eats the lemmings from Norm Of The North alive, and a Rick Astley funko pop sings never gonna give you up so that might be disturbing,

Not Breadwinners :( Well Not Bad

This Show Is A Ripoff Of DuckTales. In One Episode They Said Bread Is True Love. This Show Is Also Like SpongeBob SquarePants. And Now This Breadwinners Is Like Your Hearing Sussy Balls The Song Breadwinners I Know Is Inappropriate Well Is Not My Favorite Nickelodeon Show Mr Meaty Or Fanboy And Chum Chum Is Worse Than This Show 3 Stars. Also This Show Is Not Bad.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (33 ):
Kids say (116 ):

Breadwinners relies heavily on wedgie and flatulence jokes to maintain kids' attention through 30 minutes of generally bizarre plots and a parade of strange characters. There's some merit to the dynamic duo's friendship and the fact that neither leaves the other out to dry in any of their mishaps, but this kind of content seems more a lucky byproduct than the intended message of a show in which silliness and physical comedy rule supreme.

One thing the show does have going for it is a wealth of funny bread-related puns, from delivering a "pumperknuckle punch" to a bad guy to saying goodbye with a resounding, "Hasta la yeasta!" Unlike a well-worn poop joke, these never get old, but then again, they're not likely to strike the same chord of hilarity with your kids.
