Impressive writing and animation, but not at all appropriate for anyone younger than a middle schooler.

I found this show filtering for a good content on C SM for my 6-year-old. The show looked entertaining, but the art style reminded me of Adventure Time (which I watched in college, and is definitely not child appropriate) so I decided to give the first episode a test watch on my own. The animation in writing is well above the average kids cartoon on prime video. That being said it's also definitely not a show for little kids. In just the pilot episode, there's tons of intentionally creepy animation animatronic toys (drawn to look like five nights at Freddy's), plus tons of "gross" animation frequently used in teen Titans go for Adventure Time. The horribly injured, speaks only in muffled screams, father is also a little unsettling. Funny if that's the genre you're looking for, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone under 10. Danger and Eggs also has positive emphasis on non-binary and lgbtq+ characters. Depending on when you want to introduce your kids to these topics could also be a good gauge for what age you think the show is appropriate.

Responsibility, repercussions, and representation

I'm surprised not to see any other note of it, because aside from the great "clean" humor for kids and adults alike, this show has wonderful representation compared to most anything in the field. Multiple nonbinary characters, a character with two dads, a Black woman in a position of power (the mayor, who is also cool as heck) among a myriad of others! Episodes nearly all have some pretty explicit overarching lesson learned aren't all just rehashed 90's cartoon themes. In one episode they briefly explore latent sexism, how dumb it is, and how traditions can be okay, and they can also change to be better. Characters frequently assume the best about others and that hard feelings are from.kisunderstandings, but they're not perfect - they ca get their feelings hurt and be petty, but they don't stay that way - they evaluate their actions and grow. This show is a delight, and should the service ever have the good sense to put out a second episode, I'll resubscribe to Amazon Prime on the spot for it. I'll also note that I watched this with my 4 year old twice through and that they loved it, and now, 2 years later, we'd all happily watch it again, with my kid doubtless getting new, deeper meanings from it. Strongly recommend!

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

Kids will likely love this delightful buddy comedy and its polar-opposite main characters, whose vast personality discrepancies account for the majority of the laughs. Sure, there's plenty of fun in watching the absurd predicaments that 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, Phillip doesn't shy away from any adventure that D.D. plans, and he usually winds up enjoying the experience, despite his initial uncertainty. The show really shines in its diverse representations, with characters of different ethnicities, genders, and sexualities treated with equal respect and acceptance. In Danger & Eggs, differences exist without clumsy explanation, which is a great way to help both adults and children see themselves represented on screen. Above all, the show is full of excitement and color and is a fun way to remind kids of the value of taking chances, making friends, and trying new things.
