Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Derives humor from sexual content and frequent violence. Not intended for kids.

Positive Role Models

Each character is severely flawed in their own way. The Devil hopes to make hell more fun, but his idea of fun often involves a lot of destruction.  

Violence

Broken bones protrude through skin. Characters are shot, stabbed, cut in half, burned in lava, involved in gruesome, bloody accidents. These injuries heal miraculously, as the characters are already dead. However, it is mentioned they do still feel pain.

Sex

Frequent sexual humor and simulated sex acts. Shots of pixelated genitalia. Bare (animated) bottoms.

Language

Very frequent cursing, including "f--k" and "s--t."

Consumerism

Unpopular products, or fads deemed as "annoying" on Earth, such as fidget spinners, are sent to hell.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Characters drink and smoke cigarettes. One character believes they are on a "bad ketamine trip" upon entering hell.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Devil May Care is a violent cartoon riddled with crass and lewd humor that is not appropriate for kids. The story follows the Devil (voiced by Alan Tudyk) and his new assistant, Beans (Asif Ali), as they attempt to "gentrify" hell. Expect loads of sexual content, including frequent sexual jokes and innuendo, simulated intercourse, and pixelated genitalia. There is also a lot of animated violence as characters are involved in accidents during their misadventures. Animals often beat, trample, and even stab characters.

What's the story?

In DEVIL MAY CARE, the Devil (voiced by Alan Tudyk) has forgone his usual torture methods for a new venture in "gentrification." He builds a city in hell full of hipsters and salad bars, and hires a new assistant/social media manager named Beans (Asif Ali). Beans, the Devil, and his other lackeys work together to ensure the success of hell's first social media platform, but just because the torture has stopped that doesn't mean there won't be plenty of pain along the way.

Is it any good?

This racy adult cartoon thrives on sexual innuendo and violent humor. Although the characters in the show rarely inflict pain upon each other intentionally (except the cats, described as the only true evil beings in hell), much of the humor comes from the pain they experience.

Despite this reliance on physical humor, Devil May Care is essentially a workplace comedy about a growing startup. Adult viewers who are fans of contemptuous comedy may enjoy the jokes poking fun at millennial and Gen Z culture.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about depictions of traditionally "evil" characters. What do you think the creator's intent was with their portrayal of the Devil? Who is the target audience?

  • Families can talk about gentrification. What does it mean? What does gentrification look like to you? What is its effect on areas and culture?

  • What goes into creating a social media platform? What are the benefits and detriments of social media culture?
