A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Episodes do teach a little about movie and television production, but it's not emphasized.
Ned is very confident and okay with trying something new, but this lesson is not reinforced in a way that will help young kids learn it easily.
Positive Role Models
Fairly diverse set of human guests on the show, but we don't get to know much about them.
Violence & Scariness
No physical violence, but some simple expressions of mistrust and dislike are expressed between characters. Ned also mentions that he has destroyed other planets in the past, and that his original aim was to destroy Earth before he fell in love with its celebrities.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some innuendo likely to go over kids' heads, like a the AI avatar BETI saying "I don't have any children, that I know about."

Mild potty language like "toots" and "poop." Also, characters get into mild arguments and express mild dislike towards each other.

Products & Purchases
Not as overt as typical talk shows where guests plug their latest work in the interviews, but several Disney brands like Star Wars and High School Musical are mentioned by name.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Earth to Ned is a semi-scripted celebrity talk show hosted by an alien puppet. There's no physical violence, but some simple expressions of mistrust and dislike are expressed between characters. There's also some innuendo likely to go over kids' heads, and mild potty language like "poop" and "toots." While it's not as overt as typical talk shows where guests plug their latest work in the interviews, several Disney brands like Star Wars and High School Musical are mentioned by name.
Is It Any Good?
Like other Henson Company shows, the puppets are fantastic and technologically impressive, but unfortunately, the actual content of this show falls a bit flat for kids and adults alike. While the show is appropriate for whole-family viewing, much of this show's humor will go over kids' heads. The comedy is awkward, so it may not be for everyone. Also, many of the jokes poke fun of late night talk shows and the entertainment industry, and so the content involves a lot of industry navel-gazing. It's not true of every guest Ned interviews, but many segments feel like a thinly disguised promotional vehicle for Disney-related properties. Kids may enjoy watching the zany puppets in Earth to Ned, and some of the celebrity guests will be interesting to kids into pop culture. But overall, this isn't a show most kids will want at the top of their streaming queue.
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.
