A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
There's no strong moral content here, but nothing really negative to watch for, either. A dog burps instead of barks.
Violence & Scariness
Some physical humor.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that any kid who watches this show will probably turn into Gerald for at least an afternoon, communicating only with boings, beeps, and squeaks -- and chances are you'll tire of it long before he or she does. Otherwise, there are no red flags here; since it's the modern version, even the sex roles are politically correct.
Is It Any Good?
Gerald offers giggles for everyone in the family in much the same way that the cartoon classics do. The humor is sometimes physical, sometimes verbal, and never scatological (although there is a dog who burps rather than barking). It's sheer, harmless fun -- but if you're looking for even the slightest educational or moral content, you'd do best to go elsewhere.
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.
