Harmless but empty; your kids can do much better.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The main character (while a fantasy creature and not human) is definitely Hispanic. Slapstick, put downs, nothing really objectionable -- all sort of age-appropriate
Violence & Scariness
Ricochet -- the main character -- is a wrestler and the episodes center on fights.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this show centers around the fighting ability of Mucha Lucha and the gang's ability to have unique defenses. The main character is a cross between a Pokemon creature and a street Latino kid. It's fine for your kids to watch, but it's nothing but the gang's battles to save the world while having to clean their rooms.

What's the Story?
Ricochet, Flea, and company are wrestling creatures who deal with the twin challenges of growing up and saving the world. Apparently, this seems to require a lot of fighting.
Is It Any Good?
There's a definite Hispanic influence in Ricochet's world, but the show misses the opportuntity to broaden and diversify beyond accents. Harmless but empty.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
