A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Heroes use words to solve problems whenever possible; characters work to overcome their own shortcomings.
Violence & Scariness
Cartoon hijinks and exaggerated shenanigans, though no one ever really gets hurt; plenty of funny sound effects when villains get caught.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a fairly innocuous cartoon about a superhero dog (originally owned by Superman) who, along with his coterie of companions, saves the city of Metropolis from an array of villains. Each half-hour episode is broken down into a pair of shorter stories, making this a good length for younger viewers; the action is suitable for the little ones as well, since the bad guys get theirs, but in a pretty tame fashion -- often tangled up in their own tails or scared right into a cage.
Is It Any Good?
Krypto is a great cartoon for younger viewers. The animation is crisp and vibrant, with bright colors and lots of fun sound effects. Plots center on innocent events like the theft of a boatload of crackers by a parrot pirate and the arrival of a collective of intergalactic dogs who come to Earth to prevent a cat takeover.
Characters work together to solve problems and frequently help each other out in times of distress. The jokes are funny and clever, so parents can watch with kids and not get bored. Episodes are split into two stories per half-hour, so even kids with shorter attention spans can follow the plots. All in all, this is good family fun.
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.
