Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (21 ):

Because Drawn Together is a cartoon aimed at adults, it tends to push the envelope a lot further than live-action reality shows, particularly where sex and sexuality are involved. Characters' sexuality is constantly being examined and challenged, kissing scenes are exaggerated (viewers see tongues rotating and hyper-flailing), and in one episode, a flashback shows Captain Hero being gangbanged by a group of fraternity brothers at a party.

Anyone expecting a feel-good animated show when they tune into Drawn Together will be sorely disappointed. The series -- which sometimes feels like a strange, hit-and-miss hybrid of South Park and The Surreal Life -- can be funny, but it's definitely for mature audiences only.

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.
