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.

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.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (30 ):

Fans who can't get enough of this exuberant princess will love these continued adventures in and around Rapunzel's home kingdom of Corona. She's entirely the same person who stole hearts in Tangled with her appealing naïveté and optimism, and she keeps them even as she's thrust back into a mystery of magical proportions regarding her inexplicable (and now indestructible, by the way) hair. Her chemistry with Eugene continues to know no bounds, even with the somewhat meddlesome presence of Cassandra, who harbors a strong dislike of Rapunzel's devoted boyfriend. The addition of Flynn Rider-devotee Varian is not an unwelcome change, and he offers plenty of laughs in his fanboy admiration for Eugene's alter ego.

Rapunzel's spunk continues to make her a favorite among princess fans, and that won't change with this fun series. But because the mystery of her hair evolves over time and multiple episodes and, thus, there's no conclusive result at an episode's end, it's better suited for a slightly older audience than the enamored tots. That said, the content in Tangled: The Series is consistent with previous productions, making it good family fare.
