Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated spoof of the Olympics features nothing objectionable for most young viewers. Overall, the level of competition and the "battles" between the good guys and the villains are innocent and lighthearted.
Is It Any Good?
Even though Laff-A-Lympics (also known as Scooby-Doo's All-Star Laff-A Lympics) is goofy, kids can still walk away with many valuable life lessons. The Scooby Doobies and The Yogi Yahooeys are great team players -- not only does each team respect its own members, but both groups have admiration for each other, even though they're competing for the same title. These two teams prove that not all competition has to be cutthroat and demonstrate that being a good competitor means playing to win while still treating your opponents with respect.
Kids will enjoy guest appearances by characters like Fred Flintstone (who sits in as the commentator). In general this series (which still airs in reruns) is cheerful and frivolous -- a nice change from other cartoons that depend on violence and innuendos for a chuckle.
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.
