Mr pickles is groovy

I think this is a fun show. Obviously it's not for children. it's really funny in my opinion and I really love the show. Of course it's a show for people with dark humor, not a family. It's rated X from what I know (It's literally on adult swim, what do you expect?) It usually depends on who's watching it. it's also fun to see immature adults saying it should be cancelled and stuff. It's for a certain audience, just remember that.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (46 ):
Kids say (37 ):

This ribald cartoon gets away with a lot of content that would be seen in an entirely different light if it were a live-action presentation. Although it does draw the line at showing full nudity, pretty much everything else gets a green light, and the result is excessive mature content that seems designed to reel in viewers on shock value alone. And shock you it will.

Obviously Mr. Pickles won't do teens any favors, and you'd be hard-pressed to find any positive messages in content that mocks nonconforming body types and abilities. Even so, its egregious stereotypes, over-the-top cartoon violence, and explicit humor is bound to entice some curious adult viewers.
