A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value
Positive Messages

This show sends a powerful message that believing in oneself is the only way for things to happen. While bad things could happen if Luna and her friends do not solve the problem, these things are not major catastrophes. They are more geared toward making life better rather than saving the town from ultimate destruction. Luna and her friends encounter a problem in the land of Amazia, and through positive thinking and teamwork, they are able to achieve their goals. However, while they use the catchphrase "we need to make the impossible possible" and show the power of believing in oneself, it may be hard for younger viewers to own this message for themselves since Luna is able to make things happen with magic in a magical land.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Luna Petunia is kind, caring, and creative. She's always positive and, with a little thought, figures out what to do to help the situation. Luna gets a lot of support from her friends who often encourage her and tell her that they believe in her. This helps her stay focused on the task and ultimately come up with a solution to save the day. In this way, both Luna and her friends are positive role models for young children. 

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Luna Petunia is filled with fun, adventure, friendship, the power of positive thinking, and lots of pink and glitter. While boys may like the show, and there are male characters that all kids will enjoy, it's clearly geared toward girls and all things deemed "girly." The "Cirque du Soleil" part of the first season's title implies that there may be acrobatics in the show, but there aren't any. Luna focuses her energies on "making the impossible possible," but that relates to her problem-solving rather than fantastic tricks. The fourth season has a new name; Luna Petunia: Return to Amazia

Good with caveats

It's positive and pretty, but (the first episode at least) emphasizes beauty and materialism more than we like. There were other minor nits to pick, but ov... Continue reading

What's the story?

When LUNA PETUNIA discovers the magical land of Amazia, she finds herself having all kinds of adventures. As she explores the world and meets friends who happen to be robots, koalas, and toys, Luna also learns how to think positively to achieve her goals. While having "Cirque du Soleil in the title leads one to believe that the show involves flipping, flying, and incredible acrobats, Luna Petunia is more about incredible adventures and believing in yourself.

Is it any good?

This colorful show keeps viewers entertained as Luna and her friends (a robot, a koala bear, and an interesting toy creature) work together to make things happen. They can do anything, from pulling up rainbows to making flying food to finding lost duck-like creatures. Teamwork and problem-solving are at the forefront as every episode of Luna Petunia features a new problem in Amazia that Luna must fix.
