Heck no!

I’m a proud father to 4 girls. My oldest and first girl tried to break into our house with the DaBaby car after she said “let’s go”, My second girl was roller skating around the house with cheese underneath, my third girl used using her hands with laundry detergent as paint and put it into her shirt and my youngest and last girl was trying to cut her hair with razors and ate crazy fruity peddles that contained too much sugar. It was so bad that me and my wife blocked it for, our TV and there is no way we are letting our daughters watch this again.

Too much violence
Too much sex

Live action? This is CARTOON Network!

This show is just plain HORRIBLE! The voice acting and jokes are terrible! Also,why is this garbage on Cartoon Network? It's a network for CARTOONS! Stuart Snyder needs a wake up!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (13):
Kids say (40):

Although there's little intrinsic educational quality to this mostly fluffy series, it is a fun option for tweens who are curious about how things work. The guys' off-the-wall ideas are sure to get viewers' own minds turning over questions they might have, and with a little parental assistance, some of those ideas could present some fun learning opportunities.

As far as content goes, there's nothing inappropriate for tweens, but younger kids might be misled by the guys' apparent lack of supervision and unlimited access to supplies and tools. Do be sure to remind viewers of all ages that although they may not see it, the teens are under adult supervision and that their experiments do carry some risk of danger (so kids shouldn't try their own tests at home!).

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.
