Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes is a quirky animated series about a kid who really wants to be a hero. It contains lots of positive messages about goal-setting, problem-solving, working hard, and friendship. Being creative and using your imagination are also strong themes. However, it also contains lots of fantasy violence, making it a less-than-ideal choice for very young viewers. The series is one installment of the OK K.O.! video and gaming franchise.
Is It Any Good?
This entertaining and positive series lets viewers follow the story of a likable kid with an active imagination and very clear goals. K.O. is sensitive and well-intentioned, but his drive to work hard and problem-solve, even after many failed attempts at being a hero, also make him a positive character.
The series features lots of clever moments, including funny one-liners and a memorable infomercial advertising Boxmore's services. These scenes may go over small children's heads, but chances are that younger tweens will find a lot to laugh at. Throughout it all, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes consistently underscores the fact that you aren't born a hero -- you become one.
