A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

This show intends to entertain rather than to educate.

 

Positive Messages

Kids see Felicity and her friends enjoy epic and fantastical adventures that allow them to explore their individuality. Very little about their experiences in their mythical world relate to reality, and likewise there's not much consequence for their actions. Some problem-solving skills come into play in stories.

 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Felicity is a free thinker and never allows herself to be defined by others' expectations. She challenges norms and revels in what makes her -- and each of her friends -- unique.

 

Violence & Scariness

Cartoon-style accidents like long falls and crashes don't result in notable injuries.

 

Sexy Stuff
Language

Rarely "butt."

 

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty is an animated series about a cat named Felicity who's also part rainbow, butterfly, and (you guessed it) unicorn who lives in a mythical land with her animal and magical creature friends. The stories are mostly superficial in nature, showing the characters involved in exciting and funny adventures that challenge them to solve a problem of some kind. Felicity's unique nature makes her a decent example of embracing uniqueness in yourself and in others, but the show's frantic pace and distracting visuals tend to overshadow this positive quality.

It's ok! But lemme give some explanation

1. Character's are similar And the character's are different to me imo (just a little bit but not always), but the characters are amazing!

What's the story?

RAINBOW BUTTERFLY UNICORN KITTY follows the adventures of a hybrid cat named Felicity (voiced by Allegra Clark) who uses her unique and magical abilities to explore her fairy tale home of Mythlandia with her friends. When the place you call home is a land of mythical creatures and magical folks, there's no telling what each day will hold, but gregarious Felicity and her best canine friend, Miguel (Arturo Sandoval), meet every new experience with an abundance of excitement.

Is it any good?

The technicolor conglomerate of characters and scenery that awaits first-time viewers is a fairly accurate commentary on the show's overall content. Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty is so flashy and awash in the full-spectrum visual stimulation that one has to wonder if it's meant to disguise the vacuum of quality content within. Felicity's adventures with her friends are fun and imaginative, but they're not particularly clever, engaging, or instructive.

That said, it's always refreshing to see a character who defies the norms as Felicity's four-in-one nature does, and it challenges viewers' perception of the very existence of "normal" itself. She's a model of self-acceptance and of doing your best with your unique qualities. Even without the kind of magical abilities Felicity has, kids can relate these messages to their own experiences (possibly with some guidance from parents) and better identify what makes them special as well.
