A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

The show intends to entertain rather than to educate.

Positive Messages

Some of the segments put unsuspecting bystanders on the hot seat in hidden-camera pranks, and they're not always thrilled about the shock. Potty humor includes farting. Mild stereotyping exists for humor's sake, but none of it is offensive.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The teen cast members are talented and work well as a group. There's diversity among the cast.

Violence & Scariness

Rarely skits incorporate some sort of painful affliction like being struck by lightning, but there's a always a comical spin on this kind of content.

Sexy Stuff

Some flirting between teens in character relative to the sketches.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Incredible Crew is a collection of comedy skits that poke fun at common aspects of kids' lives at school, at home, and with friends. None of the content is worrisome for kids, although tweens will better appreciate much of the show's humor because it's rooted in life experiences they've likely had. Expect some mild potty humor like farting, and some of the segments incorporate hidden-camera pranks that make unwitting bystanders the victims of jokes, so be sure to talk to your kids about the difference between laughing with someone and laughing at someone.

Very Underrated Show, Its Actually Amazing

Suffering For the Mind, Garbage For the Kids

Forgetting the fact that Incredible Crew is a LIVE-ACTION show on CARTOON NETWORK, this show is just awful. First of all, the actors are decent, but they lack c... Continue reading

Awesome show

This show is hilarious and original. Whenever I watch it I laugh the whole time. One of my favorite shows.

What's the story?

INCREDIBLE CREW is a sketch-comedy series featuring a main cast of six teens who put a comical spin on everyday events like running errands with a parent or sitting next to an irritating person in a public place. Using original music videos, hidden-camera pranks, phony infomercials, and funny shorts, the cast often parodies fashion trends, social structures, boy-girl relationships, and other marks of modern times.

Is it any good?

Created by entertainment mogul Nick Cannon, Incredible Crew moves at a fast clip through skits and pranks that are relevant to what's important in young viewers' lives. Whether it's putting a cool spin on cruising through town in your mom's minivan or mocking fads like friendship bracelets and hair accessories, these sketches are sure to have your kids in stitches.

Its production value lags behind Disney's So Random!, and there's the obvious omission of live performances by guest musicians, but Incredible Crew makes the most of clever writing and a well-rounded cast. It doesn't break any new ground, but it does offer families 30 minutes of funny programming that bypasses iffy content in favor of parodies based on some simple concepts.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it feels like to be the brunt of a practical joke. Has this ever happened to you? What harm can come of a prank at someone's expense?

  • Compare this style of comedy to that of a typical sitcom. Watch other comedies together as a family. Are there any cases in which these shows single out a person or group of people for laughs? 

  • Host your own sketch-comedy night, incorporating simple props, costumes, and even songs. What aspects of your life would make funny skits?
