Superhero shorts have humor, a bit of fantasy violence.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Marvel Funko is a series of short animated videos featuring Funko-styled Marvel comic book characters. The dialogue-free shorts originated on YouTube in 2016 and are now available to watch on Disney+. Expect brief moments of mild fantasy violence -- characters getting zapped, some physical matches, etc. -- but no one gets seriously hurt. Overall, the series is lighthearted and funny and will appeal to kids (and adults) who are fans of the universe. But it also serves to promote Marvel-branded Funko figurines, which are popular collectible items.

What's the story?

MARVEL FUNKO is a series of 3D animated video shorts starring Marvel characters presented in Funko pop style. From Spiderman and Iron Man fighting Thor’s brother Loki, to Deadpool fighting Venom with spicy chimichangas, each story shows how the superheroes from the Marvel universe are able to defeat evil, one nemesis at a time. 

Is it any good?

These fun, lighthearted comic-style shorts feature some of Marvel’s most popular characters fighting their enemies while looking like big-eyed Funko dolls. Each approximately 90-second episode shows a friend in peril, an anti-hero in action, or other situations that call for a superhero or two. But the series successfully balances brief moments of crime fighting action with humor, despite the lack of dialogue. The result is a collection of stories that are suited for young viewers looking for a chance to watch some of their favorite Marvel superheroes. However, Marvel Funko is still well-produced enough to entertain those who are less familiar with the universe.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the way Marvel Funko tells stories without dialogue. How do the characters communicate their thoughts and feelings without speaking? 

  • How much violence is too much violence in a cartoon geared towards kids? What do you think about its potential impact on kids?

  • What commercial benefit is there to creating entertainment that combines the Marvel and the Funko universes? Do you think all viewers are aware of this? If you'd like more information about about helping kids make sense of marketing and media, check out these resources.
