Definitely not kid-friendly and your typical 23-year-old slacker won't get it

Definitely NOT for kids! And not just because of the puppet violence, sex, and adult language they use. Most of the humor is way over kids' (and many adults') heads. Definitely not even for many adults. This show assumes the viewer is familiar enough with literature and history to truly appreciate a lot of the humor. Your children will watch it when they go away for college and hopefully will enjoy it then.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

It's OK

When you say "Despite impressive animation, crude 'toon isn't for kids" it kinda implies that somehow the animation makes a difference in what's appropriate. Cartoons are no longer just for kids. In fact they never were just for kids. It just ended up that way here in North America. I also agree with others that there isn't much violence in the show. As for the show itself it's pretty good. A few laughs here and there but it's not anything special.
