Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Long Live the Royals comedy cartoon miniseries with occasional mild profanity ("you suck," "shut up") and humor around adult-oriented topics like getting high off "enchanted smog." Fights break out often, people are pushed, hit, and sometimes even struck with arrows or swords, but it's all done in humor without real bloodshed. Characters sometimes issue low-level insults at each other, and the queen casually mentions killing her brother.
Is It Any Good?
With the steep rise in animated series available in recent years, adults and children alike can choose from many high-quality comedies; sadly, this one doesn't make the cut. Right out of the gate, Long Live the Royals is hindered by its short running time. Clocking in at only 10 minutes each, there's barely time to set up any jokes before the episodes are over. The jokes that do get made aren't particularly witty and definitely don't reach the levels of social satire achieved by The Simpsons or King of the Hill. Add to that a cast of characters that aren't even interesting enough to be unlikeable, and there's just nothing here to keep the audience's attention. That being said, there's also not much to offend. So if you need something to occupy an older elementary or middle school child for a few minutes, by all means, turn it on. Better yet, leave it playing in the background while you entice them to do something more interesting with you, like playing a game. Otherwise, skip it.
