What's the story?

DANGER RANGERS follows the adventures of furry friends Sully (voiced by Jerry Houser), Burble (Kevin Michael Richardson), Burt (Mark Hamill), Kitty (Grey DeLisle), Gabriela (Tasia Valenza), Squeeky (Rob Paulsen), and Fallbot (John Kassir) as they help their fellow citizens learn to think and play safely. Whether they're putting out a fire or swimming to someone's rescue, parents can be reassured that the DR crew will both entertain and educate young viewers.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

One of the best things about Danger Rangers is that any kid can be "Danger Ranger Ready," since there are enough male and female characters to attract both boys and girls. Also, there's plenty of action to engage even the busiest kids, and the musical numbers will connect with any kid who loves to sing and dance.

Even more importantly, the show's essential messages are delivered clearly, without any scariness. In each episode, kids learn vital lessons about key safety issues -- from how to prevent a fire to how to play safe by the pool -- in a fun, upbeat way that isn't likely to upset them.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about safety. What are some of the ways kids get hurt? How can you avoid them yourself? Why is it so important to listen to parents when they tell you things to keep you safe? What part do the Danger Rangers play in keeping their fellow citizens safe?

OK show that teaches safety

I've seen some episodes of this show online when I was younger and saw it on CBS earlier today and it's pretty good. It gives good safety tips, without sugar-coating it too much. But some episodes actually address that not following safety tips could kill you, which might startle some kids. But it's a pretty good show and is OK for kids 5+. Educational: Teaches kids safety tips. Violence: Kids are shown in mild peril, but nobody gets hurt. Some episodes address that unsafe actions can hurt or even kill you, but nothing too intense.
