Robotomy was not for kids

i think Robotomy was a amazing show but it was not for kids because it has some mild swearing like crap and screwed its very vilonte robots get crushed shot and impaled a robot rips out another robots organs and it has some very edgy Adult jokes a robot is painting and his parents mistake him for masturbating and theres a robot that looks like a hooker with that being said i think robotomy was for older teens and i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 15

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7):
Kids say (40):

Good thing, because violence is the key ingredient on the show. The storylines are pretty thin (and the episodes are typically a short 15 minutes), and the focus here is on the imagery that sells the metaphor of school as a battlefield. Director Christy Karacas also helmed the even-more-violent Superjail, which was definitely aimed at adult viewers (and, like this show, appears on Cartoon Network's late-night Adult Swim programming segment); this show is a bit more tame, but is best for older teens. Subtle it is not, but Robotomy does feature characters that will appeal to anyone who ever struggled to find acceptance in high school.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
