After season one, the show drastically changes.

I didn't have a problem with my four year old daughter watching the Tangled series at first, but after season one it became too dark for a small child. There is WAY too much talk of "evil" and it shows some pretty suggestive scenes when it comes to being "scary." Seriously, it is the kind of things that could give a small child nightmares, and have them asking questions that they can't begin to understand. I am really disappointed with Disney on this one. This is way too dark for the assumed audience.

Some cute, some problematic, some creepy

As for my personal opinion on the show, it has cute moments but it also feels like it drags on a bit. Rapunzel is not always a very good friend but I think that teaches a lesson throughout the show. I do think the rating is a bit young. The first season I would say is 7+ but the second and third season get dark in select episodes. The majority of episodes are just fine for 7+ but the ones that further the plot can get pretty creepy sometimes. One last thing in the first season, the king/rapunzels dad is sort of the antagonist and throughout this it is repeatedly said he is doing it becuase he loves her. This doesn't really sit well with me. I dont like the storyline of abuse is becuase the abuser loves them and thats why they are being abusive. I would definitely talk with your kids about how this is problematic. People aren't abusive towards anyone becuase they love them and that isn't an excuse for the behavior.
