Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Other than the dragging-around-and-knocking-into-things, there's no particular violence in Corneil and Bernie and only mild salacious glances from the teenage Bernie at buxom cartoon girls and women. Still, this isn't really a cartoon for young kids. The relationship between Corneil and Bernie is complex and not particularly appealing, and the mayhem has a malicious feel, as if Bernie knows that even if Corneil is a dog, Corneil has something Bernie hasn't got. Older kids will have seen it all before, but why teach younger viewers that people and animals can be ugly to each other before absolutely necessary?
