A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show has many profane and mature aspects but at heart is a family drama with a young teen at its center; messages circle around concepts such as "trust in yourself" and "follow your dreams." But messages are frequently punctuated by violence and vulgarity so may not land solidly.
Positive Role Models
Chrissy is a teen with more to worry about than grades and her social life; her parents are engaged in a battle for the future of the earth, yet they're also supportive of and loving toward their daughter.
Main characters are White, but there's a major side character whose skin is inked in a darker shade, and people of color populate the high school Chrissy attends.

Violence & Scariness
Violence and gory imagery are frequent: Chrissy kills two bullies and their arms fly off and heads explode, while entrails clump on the ceiling and drip. Demons frequently appear with visible bones and viscera; characters are axed, stabbed, burned, sucked into the sky in a purple cloud, etc. Expect frequent death and gore, yet a comic tone pervades.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Numerous references to Laura "f---ing" and "banging" the devil. Laura says she'd rather "fist a dog" than be in a relationship. There's nonsexual frontal nudity when Laura performs a magical ritual; we see her nude both from the front and back. Expect lots of body humor.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Little Demon is an animated series about a teen girl whose mother is human and father is Satan himself. Despite the spooky premise, this show has a light and comic tone, though lots of mature content. Violence is frequent and bloody: Characters shoot off their own genitals; arms and heads shoot off bloodily when Chrissy wills it; we frequently see demons with visible entrails and bones. Demon hunters are in search of Chrissy too, promising to "gut this child and wear her entrails as scarves." Expect disembodied limbs, supernatural imagery, talking misshapen animals, frequent deaths, and other gory violence. Language is mature too, with frequent cursing ("f--k," "motherf----r," "a--hole," "s--t" and so on). Chrissy has a love interest; expect them to date and kiss. Teens drink at a party, including gelatin shots; Chrissy downs a whole tray of them as other teen guests applaud.
Is It Any Good?
As a decidedly un-typical teen and her otherworldly Prince of Darkness dad, voice actors Lucy and Danny DeVito inject extra charm into this animated adventure. The setup is solid too, with Chrissy battling demons on a number of levels both symbolic and real: puberty and the ordinary travails of high school life, plus a brewing supernatural battle between good and evil that turns on her joining either her dad's force of evil or the regular humans personified by her mom.
It's a lot for a teen girl to handle. Fittingly, Chrissy sometimes enjoys her powers, dispatching bullies with a flick of her wrist and spicing up a birthday party with fire and rampaging demons. Other times, like when she's dealing with the fallout of her unusual co-parenting arrangement (she's willing to spend every other weekend in hell with her dad), she's enraged by the responsibility thrust upon her due to her half-Antichrist heritage. Make no mistake, Little Demon is profane and very violent; despite the troubled-family premise, it's not for family viewing. But with gags that are more clever than you'd expect, and strong actors in both the lead and secondary roles, this animated romp is one to watch out for.
