A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

Positive themes about friendship and experiencing new things.

Positive Messages

D.D. and Phillip are the yin to each other's yang, and it's a friendship that works brilliantly. Kids see that differences don’t have to stunt a relationship; in fact, they can be its greatest asset. The characters' adventures are unrealistic in many cases, and D.D.'s fearlessness isn't something to be emulated in real life, but the carefree show celebrates the eagerness of youth.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Phillip's preparedness saves D.D. from herself many times over, and some of his basic rules -- such as using the buddy system in unfamiliar situations -- are jovial reminders for viewers to take their own safety in hand. On the other hand, D.D. rarely exercises self-checks for safety (hence the value of her ovular best friend), but that's because she's motivated by an inherent exuberance for life and adventure, which has its own merit.

Violence & Scariness

No violence, but D.D.'s zest for adventure puts her in many situations that would be dangerous in real life.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Danger & Eggs is a vibrant animated series about two best friends who have all kinds of over-the-top adventures together. The show's shtick is that while one character seeks out wild experiences and daredevil stunts, her best friend shoulders the task of keeping her -- and those around them -- safe as the fun plays out. The dichotomy is laugh-out-loud hilarious at times -- and consistently entertaining throughout -- and engaging enough that parents will enjoy watching with their kids. Most of the characters' experiences are highly unlikely in the real world (they ride a decrepit waterslide that's slated for demolition, for instance), but they always channel the mixed emotions that accompany trying something new.

Not funny, just weird

What's the story?

DANGER & EGGS is the story of unlikely best friends D.D. Danger (voiced by Aidy Bryant) -- a teal-haired adrenaline junkie who seeks out adventure -- and cautious, overly prepared, egg-shaped Phillip (Eric Knobel). When D.D. gets a notion to do something extraordinary, such as fashion a huge obstacle course in a public park, she's off and running, with Phillip a step behind, ready to soften the blow of the inevitable calamity to follow.

Is it any good?

Kids will love this delightful buddy comedy and its polar-opposite stars, whose vast personality discrepancies account for the majority of the laughs. Sure, there's plenty of fun in watching the absurd predicaments D.D.'s impulsiveness gets them into, and the bold animation is a real asset to the show's appeal. But it's utterly hilarious to jump back and forth between fearless D.D. and Phillip of the inexhaustible safety precautions.

Another likable quality to Danger & Eggs is the characters' enthusiasm for living life to the fullest. Even with his inherent anxiety issues, Phillip doesn't shy away from any adventure D.D. plans, and he usually winds up enjoying the experience (if slightly less than she does, anyway!), despite his original uncertainty. It's a fun way to remind kids of the value of taking chances and trying new things.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about whether they relate better to D.D. or to Phillip in Danger & Eggs. Do you embrace new adventures, or are you more of a worrier and planner? What are the benefits of either side of that coin? How do you strike a happy balance between the two?

  • Kids: To what degree are you and your friends similar in personality? Do you like the same activities? How do you find common ground? How do you communicate with them? Why is this an important character strength?
