Violent and scary for young kids

This show has a lot of violence and insults not appropriate for younger children. It’s rated 0+ on Disney+ so it skips the age block. It has a lot of scarier scenes for children less than 7.

Is It Any Good?

At first watch, this updated version of a cartoon classic seems to get a lot right, especially with the addition of a few very capable female characters. But as The Legend of the Three Caballeros goes on, it becomes apparent that there's still a lot to be desired. Though the plot lines have been updated by equipping Greek Goddess Xandra with intriguing technology like "smart maps," the characters' less desirable qualities sadly remain the same. In classic Donald Duck style, he continues to get frustrated and lose his temper often -- regularly becoming violent and hurting others or destroying things. Side characters often scream at, or threaten, others and there's a lot of insult language thrown around. That's not to say the show is a total loss. It definitely gets points for introducing kids to foreign destinations as well as some Greek mythology. There are also a lot of laugh-out-loud moments, though some of the humor is also sarcastic and too adult for the series' target audience. For these reasons, parents watching this throwback with their kids will likely come to the conclusion that there may better choices out there.
