Not one good thing about this show!

My son just turned 5 and he started watching this show a couple of months ago. I didn't think much about it until he started talking back to me and doing the opposite of what I asked him to do. I then sat and watched a whole episode with him to see if the show had any value to it. I now can say, NO! Horrid Henry is a awful show and it teaches children to bully, hit, talk back, throw tantrums etc. I wish there was a way to block it on Netflix kids. I don't want this garbage in my home.

This show is Dumb

This show is stupid it teaches kids to bully there little brother. the person who made this show should lose all there money and get sued. I’d rather read the books.

Never missed

I watched this show as a child with my siblings, my younger sibling's resistance started with this show before this she was obedient. But recently my nephew started watching it and started doing some gross stuff like spitting and talking back, not studying bullying his brother. I have watched the entire show and I don't pick a single value from it, it's disturbing that rather than creating something of value, the creators of the show used their creativity to this show. Most of the time when children are watching cartoons and stuff. parents rely upon their trust while they are not looking after their kids, the show will be keeping them engaged and inculcate something morally right so that they could learn from it. But I have to say I grew up watching the show, my siblings watched and now my nephew is watching and I still don't like anything about it.

6+ its a good show

Its a great show but the only reason your kid is acting like horrid henry is because some kids find it hard to understand the world so they think the show helps them understand the world so just teach them like stuff about the world and tell them why they shouldn't act like horrid henry like maybe say something about the boogeyman or just anything or it could be they don't understand that much theres no swearing and its all horrid henrrys mum and dad's fault they call him horrid henrry there always enbrassed with him and he might have a mental disability I have fine motor skills problems and balancing problems so yea and by now ge probley is depressed and Peter yea when he was at the park he was doing something something very bad but the parents did not notice they should be arrested or something for child abuse and letting Peter do flirting with a idiot like its a bit hard to notice for a kid but anyone older can see it so yea like you should watch it and does people who say 18+ are being over protective like there is no swears and it makes it a bit easier to see how some kids have to go through child abuse so yeaaaaaaaa

what i dont like about this show__________ 1. if ur kid is dumb BAN THEM FROM THIS SHOW ________2. when i was younger this show made me think that you should have an enemy this fucked me up big time, even showed signs of it ________3. a lot of henrys bad personality became a part of me, for example i started shouting a lot and i assumed i was scared of injections, also at that time my last injection was forever ago, literally (edit: i had a covid jab a few weeks ago and i hate injections) ________4. at one point i started being like peter because he was "perfect" (its a bad thing for those who never watched this) _________horrid Henry would be good for kids if they knew not to do any of the bad stuff from this show, its nothing but a mind altering show _________but other than that its a really good show 7/10

This is a funny show, but it is not for little kids as Henry acts rude and mean to others. As long as the child watching understands that it is a cartoon and not real life they should be fine watching it

Need to put more thought into the messages behind television

Whats interesting about Horrid Henry from a modern perspective is the way in which the show highlights toxic parental traits. It is unspecified whether or not this is intentional, but a lot of the actions of the parents in this show could be considered abusive. The consistent insulting of their son, the blatant favouritism and the lack of pursuit into the reasons why Henry could act in such a way. This is likely an example of reading to far into an outdated piece of media, however even if unintentional it does make you wonder what this show could be teaching young children, especially if this was an unintentional byproduct of a less educated time. Parents if you’re children are acting out, perhaps instead of consistent persecution try and communicate with them? Modern psychological children's studies highlight the fact that children will mimic the world around them, with the inclusion of television and especially the parents. Sometimes, the best way to get your children to stop acting out is a clear and concise talk about their actions! Anyway congrats if you read this large entry! Cant wait to see what type of people frequent this site and whether or not i have angered any people on here :)

Poor old little Henry gets called horrid, WHY DO YOU THINK HE IS LIKE THAT? His parents never show him any understanding or empathy or love, except for when he is obidient. THEY NOT RAISING A DOG, HE A CHILD FOR GOODNESS SAKE, show little mite some compassion and humanity. He cleary has problems handling his emotions and struggle in many situations but they not address this at all (his parents) All the attention is on the little brother who they say perfect all the time which must make Henry feel awful and worse his problems but parents don't realise this. Show should be called HENRY'S HORRID PARENTS!

Horrid Henry is the best!!!!!!

As an HH fan for a long time since I was a kid, I believe its a way we can learn from each other that Horrid Henry didn't do anything wrong most of the time and when he behaves nicely, his parents nor his brother cares and yells at him for no reason. In conclusion, Horrid Henry is a simple boy trying to live his life by being surround by mean parents and his not "perfect brother".
