Boy's mischief is funny, but he's a poor role model.

Cedric is a French cartoon (with English dubbing) that brings to life the characters and stories of a popular comic series of the same name. Cedric's mischievous nature will ring true with anyone who's ever been --or been around -- an 8-year-old boy, but the nature of his antics are a little shocking from a parent's standpoint. He bullies his friends, obsesses over a girl, and has a pretty serious crush on his attractive teacher. He also talks back to his parents and grandfather and has little care for school or responsibility in general. All in all, he's hardly a gleaming role model for your kids.

The show itself isn't terrible, and the comic-inspired animation is a fun departure from today's laundry list of CGI offerings, but its humor requires a certain discernment that's lacking in kids in this target demographic. Cedric's chronic misbehavior doesn't yield the kind of consequences your kids might expect based on their own experiences, so they might get the wrong message from material the show intends to be funny.
