mr meaty was not for kids

i think mr meaty was a amazing show but it was not for kids because it was really creepy and dark and one episode takes place in the future were a kid is seen as a pimp with 2 girls with that being said mr meaty was for tweens and teens and i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 13

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (36 ):

MR. MEATY (which was spun out of a series of shorts) is a unique addition to Nickelodeon's line-up that will appeal to the pubescent crowd because of its extreme -- and often sarcastic -- characterizations of teenage life. From geeks to goddesses -- and everything in between -- you'll find them all in this offbeat series, and viewers who can take the crass humor and sassy attitudes in stride will enjoy the show's funny take on this often challenging (but never dull) stage of life.

That said, this isn't one for the kiddie set, both because of its propensity for gross humor and because its themes are all about teenagerhood. And then there's the fact that the characters are constantly surrounded by (and eating) so much fast food -- savvier viewers may pick up on the intended satire, but younger kids could easily walk away with the idea that it's OK to eat all the junk you want.
