A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this fairly edgy animated series -- which pokes fun at celebrities and other pop culture phenomena -- has endless references to actors, other TV shows, movies, and websites. There's some strong sexual innuendo (including references to breasts, male genitalia, and sexual acts), fantasy violence (blood and guns are visible, animated characters are burned alive), and drinking. Occasional curses like "f--k" are bleeped, and some segments rely on very strong stereotypes for laughs. Bottom line? It's kind of funny, but it's also rather iffy.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
The gags featured here range from pure silliness to actual social commentary about the impact that popular culture icons have on the way we view our lives. It also offers interesting insight into how easily the media enhances someone’s celebrity status.
While the show isn't as over-the-top as other teen-oriented animated series, it definitely has its share of iffy stuff -- including some pretty strong sexual innuendo. Some segments also rely on stereotypes (including some with racist overtones) to get a laugh and make their point. But for those who like this sort of humor, the show will probably tickle a few funny bones.

What exactly is popular culture? Are all famous people part of popular culture? Why or why not? Who decides? How much impact do you think the media has on popular culture?
What's the point of spoofing someone/something? Is it just to be funny, or is it also meant as some kind of social commentary? When does a spoof or gag go too far?
