It's definitely for adults

One of the best animated series. But not for kids.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 12+

Fine mostly

Season 1 &2 are great with good characters and an engaging story. However season 3 ramps up the innapropriate stuff. So maybe just let your kid watch season 1 & 2

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
