The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Crazy parties, bad choices, reckless behavior lead to unusual stories; minor consequences. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

People do dumb, risky things in the name of fun. 


Stories about threats, fights. Getting arrested, jail discussed. 


Strong innuendo, crude references, genital grabbing. Partial (animated) nudity. 


"Ass," "hell" audible; bleeped curses. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Endless stories about drinking, getting drunk, using drugs, being high.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Greatest Party Story Ever is a show that features animated dramatizations of real people's most memorable party moments. Some are funny; most involve excessive drinking and drug use and discussions of sexual encounters. Fights are detailed, as are encounters with police and being arrested. There's some strong language (curses are bleeped). It's best left for older teens, and parents may want to check in with them and discuss some of the more questionable content.

What's the story?

GREATEST PARTY STORY EVER is a series that mixes interviews and animation to tell some outrageous stories about great parties and other wild encounters. Folks describe what they consider to be their greatest, strangest, or just plain weirdest stories of parties and other social gatherings. As each person shares their tale, the events are dramatized using various styles of animation. Also featured are first-person narratives about some odd experiences they've had with unlikely people, as well as awesome run-ins with celebrities such as James Franco and Katy Perry. Adding to the fray are humorous text conversations and party photos that are "enhanced" for comic effect. 

Is it any good?

This edgy series features people sharing the outlandish details of their most memorable party experiences. With stories from a young woman accidentally setting her hair on fire with a sparkler at a club to an uncomfortable encounter with a friend's wild grandmother, sometimes you can't help but chuckle. The animated reenactments, which are overdramatized for effect, also add to the humor. 

Greatest Party Story Ever is meant to be in good fun, but many narratives highlight risky behaviors, including excessive drinking, marijuana and synthetic drug use, and casual sexual escapades that play a major part in the outrageous events described. Some of the stories are extremely crude, too. Teens will probably appreciate the comedy, but grown-ups may be disturbed by what is spotlighted here. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about some of their most memorable social experiences. What makes them stand out? Are they good memories? Bad ones? 

  • Greatest Party Story Ever features lots of people who claim they drank a lot, smoked, and did other risky things in the name of fun. Does describing these events as wild and entertaining moments that have minor consequences mean that it's OK to do these things? Parents: How can you constructively talk to your kids about these behaviors?
