A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show's primary intent is to entertain rather than educate.
The imaginary friends usually get along, but rebellious behavior is encouraged.
Positive Role Models
The characters don't shy away from breaking the rules when it suits them/their purposes, and they frequently get frustrated with each other. That said, the friends are usually there for each other when it counts.
Violence & Scariness
Extreme anger and threats are common, but no physical fights.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that young kids may not understand the difference between real and imaginary in this series. Potty humor and under-the-radar sexual references ("A bust this big needs ample support," in regards to a bust statue, for instance) crop up, and the main characters often yell and shout in frustration and are prone to breaking the rules.
Is It Any Good?
The imaginary friends are an interesting and diverse bunch of characters, but they run around in a pack and contribute very little to the plot. The premise is sweet, but the content is nothing more than rough-and-tumble boys' games. Instead of following an imaginative storyline, the main characters yell and shout in frustration, buck the rules, and wrangle the innocent and vulnerable. It's hard not to wonder whether the creator dropped out of the project altogether, leaving it in the hands of less-capable writers. This series isn't meant for younger children, since it has confusing messages. Young kids may not understand what's real and what's imaginary.
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.
