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 SuperMansion is an adult-oriented animated series featuring a house full of unconventional superheroes and their attempts to fight crime. There's lots of stereotyping, crude humor, fantasy violence, and drinking. There's also lots of strong innuendo and cursing ("f--k" is bleeped). Products such as Corona beer are visible, and Mike's Harder Lemonade is promoted in some scenes. Older teens may like it, but it's not meant for younger kids.

What's the story?
From the creators of Robot Chicken comes SUPERMANSION, which features a group of clueless superheroes who are trying to keep up with the changing times. Heading up the League of Freedom is Titanium Rex (voiced by Bryan Cranston), whose ability to fight off the country's enemies is hampered by his age. Joining him is Black Saturn (Tucker Gilmore), the feline marvel Cooch (Heidi Gardner), steroid-dependent Brad (Tom Root), and a synthetic being named Robobot (Zeb Wells). Also part of the gang is American Ranger (Keegan-Michael Key), who just returned after being stuck in a time tunnel for 60 years. When they're not fighting off enemies such as the Injustice Club and Groaner the Clown, the U.S.-tax-dollar-funded gang of superheroes live together in a mansion and try to make sense of the world around them.
Is it any good?
This animated series combines traditional comic-book archetypes with some modern stereotypes, creating a visually appealing viewing experience that's both edgy and irreverent. It also offers some not-so-subtle commentary on today's political climate.
The humor isn't for everyone, and it's definitely not geared toward kids. Some of the jokes will fly over the heads of some older teens too. But if you like this sort of thing, and you like animation, you'll probably find it worth tuning into.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about humor. Is it ever acceptable for TV and films to use stereotypes as a way of making people laugh? Even if it's not meant to be taken seriously?
Families also can talk about the concept of superheroes. Why do you think they're so often the subject of media such as TV shows and movies?
