A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

They're shooting things and blowing things up, but they're saving the world from evil.

Violence & Scariness

Violence is the raison d'etre here. It's all cartoon violence, but shooting and blowing things up are incessant.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that that this show is about as violent as cartoons get, with no attempt to offer lessons or teach social values -- unless you count saving the world. It's the kid cartoon equivalent of movies like Mission: Impossible: The fun is in the violence, if you like that sort of thing (and in this case, that's all there is). It's not age-inappropriate, per se, but there are better choices out there.

Essential for children of all ages

Common Sense has given this show a very bad rap, one it doesn't deserve. SRMTHG is a much deeper show than the mindless laugh tracks being passed off as c... Continue reading

What's the story?

SUPER ROBOT MONKEY TEAM HYPERFORCE GO! is the story of a boy who finds an abandoned robot. Inside is a team of powerful primates similar in size, shape, and appearance to the Powerpuff Girls dressed as Power Rangers. With the help of these monkeys, the boy has to save his besieged town from the evil villain on a weekly basis. Occasionally, they stop to view "game film" of themselves shooting at things and blowing them up in order to discuss (you guessed it) shooting at things and blowing them up. In every episode they get in the big robot and activate it by each shouting a word in turn: Super, Robot, Monkey, Team, Hyperforce, and then (all together now) Go!

Is it any good?

Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go certainly isn't for young kids. The villains are scary looking, the plots hopelessly confusing and lacking in any kind of continuity. It's a show that works only if your main focus is on (all together now) shooting things and blowing them up. If your kids watch these action-adventure superpower style shows, this is just one more, no better than the rest, but not really any worse. It's less creative than Powerpuff Girls and lacks that program's humor, jokey attitude, and its arguable message of gender equality.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why violent entertainment can be fun some of the time -- and why Americans, in general, really enjoy seeing the good guys blow the bad guys away. Is that good for us? Good for kids? Does it make people more violent or more indifferent to real violence? The issues weigh far more than this show.
