A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show isn't out to teach any specific positive messages, though you could argue that it promotes curiosity and an interest in science. Johnny's sisters' penchant for testing their ideas on their brother could give older siblings iffy ideas about how to treat younger ones.
Positive Role Models
Johnny's twin sisters are geniuses (a good thing for female characters), but they put their smarts to use by experimenting on their brother without their parents' knowledge (less of a good thing...).
Some potty language.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Johnny's sisters experiment on their younger brother without their parents' knowledge, which might give some older siblings mischievous ideas. There's also some potty language and cartoony physical humor.
Is It Any Good?
Surprisingly inventive and not as violent as other cartoons in this genre, JOHNNY TEST is an age-appropriate choice for kids. The only thing worth mentioning: All the experiments Johnny undergoes are unattended by adults, which allows all types of zany plots to unfold. But as long as he's in one piece by dinner time, Johnny is free to be experimented upon every day.
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.
