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

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.

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?
