A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Good always triumphs over evil -- and the Blue Falcon has a remarkable tolerance for his canine sidekick's screw-ups. Features the first-ever African-American public official on a cartoon (the mayor).
Violence & Scariness
Animated violence (scuffles, nabbing bad guys) along the lines of the average '70s superhero cartoon. It's mild by today's standards but may worry very young/sensitive kids.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Female villains tend to be scantily clad (a la Wonder Woman).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is the same late-'70s classic they may remember fondly from their own younger days. Expect some standard cartoon superhero violence (though it's all pretty lighthearted and meant to be a bit on the satirical side) and some scantily clad (a la Wonder Woman) female villains). It's worth noting that the mayor was the first-ever African-American public official in a cartoon.
Is It Any Good?
Dynomutt is funny and silly in the finest tradition of the old-school "this is the only time all week that you get to watch cartoons and eat sugary cereal, so enjoy it" Saturday mornings. Even jaded viewers of today's sophisticated action 'toons will laugh at Dog Wonder's goofy plans and ridiculous robotic abilities, with stoic straight man Blue Falcon as his foil. It's not on that often, so be sure to catch it when you can.
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.
