A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

The show aims to entertain rather than educate. 

Positive Messages

Kids see a brother and sister work together to complete missions, but they also bicker, upend, and compete with each other to collect magical swords. Negative physical qualities (upturned noses, oversized ears, etc.) are exaggerated for comic effect.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Vambre and Prohyas are competitive, each seemingly motivated by his or her desire to one-up the other. There are times when they work together and get the job done more smoothly, but these don't last long. 

Violence & Scariness

The warriors use a variety of magiswords to battle creatures (and sometimes each other). Each variation of a sword has a different power, from wrapping the victim like a mummy to spraying water at him. Some hitting, but no one is incapacitated for long. 

Sexy Stuff
Language

Name-calling such as "dumb" and "bimbus."

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mighty Magiswords expands on a short-form, web-based series for full-length episodes about a sibling duo of warriors. The show has a lot of fantasy violence, typically inflicted by one character on another using a variety of swords that have unique powers such as propelling large rocks, mimicking a chain saw, and throwing tomatoes at a target. Even so, there are no visible injuries but still a whole lot of bickering within the brother-sister pair. The stories are fun for kids who enjoy a mix of fantasy adventure and comedy, but don't look for yours to learn anything by watching; this show is the equivalent of candy for your kids' media diets.

Random but Great!

I think that this show is great! I see nothing scary or adult Easter eggs, so I thought this is fine for little kids. Some teens or even kids may find this chee... Continue reading

What's the story?

MIGHTY MAGISWORDS centers on the brother-sister duo of Prohyas (voiced by Kyle A. Carrozza) and Vambre (Grey DeLisle), known all around as Warriors for Hire . The two embark on quests to locate and retrieve magical swords, "magiswords," with unusual powers. They take on missions that bring them face-to-face with monsters, fairy-tale characters, and other oddities, reaching into their arsenal for magical swords ("magiswords") with unique powers to help get the jobs done for their clients. Things don't always go smoothly, even with weapons that morph into accordions, boomerangs, and foodstuffs at will, but if they can keep their sibling rivalry at bay, they might stand a chance of living up to their name.

Is it any good?

This loud, frantically paced collection of bizarre adventures that are fun to watch but really short on substance or value. Vambre and Prohyas are just like any other sibling team working together: competitive, snarky, and often looking to outshine each other. Sometimes that leads to arguments, sometimes to full-blown battles with their arsenal of magiswords, but most of the time they manage to combine their efforts and follow through on their missions.

Mighty Magiswords is an assault on the senses, even more so in its full-length format as opposed to the shorts that started the show. The longer episodes also become tedious to watch as the plot gets lost in the visual action. Kids may not learn much from watching, but they'll undoubtedly enjoy the characters' antics and the laughable mayhem that ensues when each new magisword gets put to use. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about sibling relationships. What unique challenges do they present for kids? Is it easier to get along with friends than it is with brothers and sisters? If so, why? 

  • Which magiswords are your kids' favorites? For what purpose would they use something similar? If they invented one, what power would it have? 

  • Kids: Do you enjoy this kind of fantasy? Why is it fun to imagine the world different from how it is?
