A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The bad guys aren't every bad, and the good guys aren't very good. Several characters always evade "the law" -- which is represented by a bungling ranger and police officer.
Violence & Scariness
Classic cartoon violence in mild form: heads knocking, pianos falling, threats, scuffles depicted as clouds of dust, etc.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some leering, eyes-popping-out cartoon "appreciation" of feminine appearance.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this 1981 animated series was the last -- and not the best -- of the classic three-segment, multi-character Hanna Barbara cartoons. They're meant purely for entertainment, not education, so you can expect falling anvils and creatures so fast they leave you literally in the dust, but no morals or other serious messages.
Is It Any Good?
Kwicky Koala was the last, and certainly not the best, creation of Tex Avery (of Bugs Bunny fame). He's a koala bear gifted with the power of great speed, and he inevitably outruns Wilfred, leaving little room or requirement for the writers and animators to come up with more creative action. Since Avery died before Kwicky's ink was even dry, his final creation never really came to life, either. And the other segments are best dismissed as derivative.
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.
