A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Mr. Johnson is involved in his son's life and keeps close tabs on what's happening. He allows his son to make his own decisions (within reason) but is always there to handle any fall-out. Meanwhile, though, Rodney constantly exerts peer pressure on Andy.
Violence & Scariness
The duo's schemes sometimes end in typical cartoon explosions or falls from great heights, but no one is hurt.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while the "peer" in this show is a pet squirrel, he uses strong pressure and some fast talking to influence his young owner's actions. The boy, who on his own has good intentions, finds himself in unexpected messes because he ignores his instincts and heeds the advice of his annoying friend. On the upside, each adventure offers a lesson in following the rules and respecting a friend's feelings.
Is It Any Good?
While kids will no doubt enjoy the duo's crazy antics, Andy's willingness to repeatedly succumb to Rodney's pressure may frustrate parents. The absence of any other friends (human or rodent) in Andy's life makes this weakness all the more obvious.
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.
