A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show intends to entertain rather than to educate, but there are positive messages about being content with yourself and never giving up on your dreams.
Kids see fearless Rapunzel take matters into her own hands and embark on a quest to discover the secrets behind her magical hair. To do so, she breaks some of her father's rules and bends others, but her intentions are true. Strong themes of friendship and loyalty, despite the tension between Eugene and Cassandra.
Positive Role Models
Rapunzel continues to be courageous and undaunted in her quest for answers. She also plays the peacemaker between the inexplicably distrustful pair of Cassandra and Eugene, who just don't see eye to eye. Varian is clever and a creative thinker who uses science to answer questions.
Violence & Scariness
Some perilous moments that show characters in worrying situations, as when they're approached by a dark figure with glowing eyes. Many questions surround the mystery of Rapunzel's hair, but there's no violence or real danger. It's hinted that the sinister Mother Gothel will make a return to the story, as she's seen once in a dream.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tangled: The Series follows the feature-length film and the TV show Tangled: Before Ever After, continuing the story of Rapunzel as she adjusts to her new role as princess of Corona. In this tale, she and her friends team up to discover the secrets behind her magical hair, which necessitates her breaking rules her father instituted to keep her safe. There's much romantic chemistry between her and her betrothed, and they're often seen hugging, holding hands, and kissing. Some moments can be frightening as mysterious people emerge from the shadows or the characters face one kind of peril or another, and a sinister presence from Rapunzel's past lurks in her dreams. Because Rapunzel's mystery unfolds over many episodes, very young kids might not have the attention span to see it through. That said, the characters' adventures are always fun, even for stand-alone viewing.
Is It Any Good?
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.
