MR SQUIDWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this programme as caused my 2 and half year old a bit of distress this morning and I think it's highly inappropriate, In one scene it has depicted a bunny rabbit dancing with its hollowed out skin she'll, muscles and then its bones this was very scary looking not to mention disgusting.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This spirited series is a fun pick for parents and kids who want to break in slowly to the concept of the paranormal and scares in general. Yes, there are monsters of every variety, plus witchcraft, possession, and the occasional malevolent carnivorous plant, but the show is too lighthearted -- and the titular bunny too cute -- to spook anyone for real. Instead Bunnicula keeps you guessing with hilarious antics and an engaging cast of characters who somehow manage to remain friends after all their messes.

Like any book adaptation to reach a screen, Bunnicula offers families a chance to see how someone else interprets an author's work. In the case of this show, viewers who have read the book will notice some significant differences in this series, which invites comparative discussions and other follow-up conversations. And with such gentle content, it's a great pick for families with a range of kids' ages.
