Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

From explaining how gazelles attempt to survive cheetah attacks to describing the fussy eating habits of the koala bear, the Emmy-nominated series offers lots of details about a wide range of animals. But Jim Henson's Animal Show with Stinky and Jake is humorous, too, thanks to some lighthearted Jim Henson-style sketches.

There's a lot to be learned here, but, despite attempts to explain things such as animal hunting habits in gentle, nonthreatening ways, sensitive children may still find some of the information alarming. Nonetheless, it's a colorful and fun way to teach children (and adults) about wildlife.
