A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The young main character is happy to use his magical powers to help his tribe in any way he can, but his exuberant (and occasionally irresponsible) efforts sometimes result in more mishaps when he goes too far.
Violence & Scariness
Typical, injury-less cartoon violence: falling boulders pound people into the ground, characters sail off cliffs and live to tell about it, etc. Tak's magical wand can also blast apart large objects in his path.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated series is based on a popular Nickelodeon video game, so don't be surprised if kids who like the show want to play the game, and vice versa. The series is fairly benign; its mild, injury-free cartoon violence (long-distance falls, full-speed collisions, etc.) is probably the only content that might give parents pause. But don't expect strong lessons -- the protagonist is often guilty of making hasty decisions that get him and his tribemates into trouble.
Is It Any Good?
Based on a popular Nickelodeon video game, Tak and the Power of Juju is an entertaining CG-animated series full of colorful characters and outlandish scenarios sure to entertain older school-age kids and young tweens. Tak's mix of good intentions and general mischief lays the groundwork for plenty of fun in each episode, and parents will like that there's not much to worry about here, aside from mild, typical cartoon violence. Just be ready for your kids to begging for the tie-in games once they've developed an affection for the jungle-dwelling cast.
