A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
This series aims to entertain rather than to educate.
A fair amount of mild potty humor, including farting noises and some comments about urinating. Sheen gets a kick out of Dorkus' name, though he doesn't see the humor in it ... or in being laughed at.
Positive Role Models
Sheen relies more on chance and luck than on common sense to get him out of jams. Nesmith, who possesses the real intelligence, rarely gets the credit he deserves.
Violence & Scariness
Cartoon violence includes explosions, extensive falls, collisions, and the like, but there are no injuries as a result.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series is very similar in style to The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron -- the popular series it was spun-off from. While there isn't any content that's overtly problematic, there's equally little of any real value to kids. Expect plenty of improbable scenarios and unlikely outcomes, some cartoon violence (falls, explosions, etc.) and mild flirting between tweens, and a smattering of potty humor like farting noises. The iffiest part of the show its main character; Sheen's hyperactive mannerisms make for a frantic overall pace.
Is It Any Good?
Jimmy Neutron fans will recognize Sheen as the boy genius' friend with a penchant for accidental trouble and lucky fix-alls. Now that he's the focal point of his own show, there are a lot more nonsensical goings-on and irrational resolutions ... but kids certainly won't mind, since it makes for truly funny predicaments. True, there's some cartoon violence -- mostly the doing of inept villain Dorkus -- but humor always supersedes any realistic angst.
Aside from plentiful potty humor (comments about urination, farting noises, etc.) and a hefty dose of unreality, there's nothing really offensive about the show. But there's equally little content of value, so Planet Sheen ultimately makes a better TV treat than a meal.
