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.
Good and evil are easy to distinguish, even though the bad guys are more comical than they are truly threatening. Teamwork is paramount to the 7D's success as the town's peacekeepers. Some personality quirks such as Sleepy's narcolepsy and Dopey's dimness are frequented for laughs, but that's to be expected with this group.
Positive Role Models
Each member of the 7D has unique a skill, but they all play a role in the team's efforts. Some have characteristics that make them less appealing than others (Grumpy's gruffness, for instance), but they work together for the good of the kingdom when it counts. Hildy is the brains behind the Glooms' operation, and she's bossy and demanding of Grim.
Violence & Scariness
Some perilous scenarios (careening down a mountain on a sled, for instance) that occasionally result in injuries, which are indicated by casts on the characters' limbs.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The 7D is a fun new take on the story of the Seven Dwarfs, who serve as their kingdom's peacekeepers in this energetic cartoon that has a lot of cartoon-style peril and comical mishaps. Similarly the story's villains are more laughable than they are threatening, so this is a worry-free pick for kids. Many of the characters' idiosyncrasies, including Grumpy's perpetual bad mood and Dopey's dimness, for instance, are mined for laughs, but it's all in good fun and is well suited to this funny animated series.
Is It Any Good?
THE 7D is a reimagining of some of Disney's most famous fairy tale characters as the Seven Dwarfs step out of Snow White's shadow and become stars in their own right. The lighthearted stories don't offer much in the way of life lessons, but they cater to the characters' playful and comical nature, which is good news for youngsters who want to watch.
In addition to a vibrant cast of heroes, The 7D also presents a pair of villains who are so laughably ineffective that they're just as fun to watch as their civic-minded counterparts. Grim and Hildy's best-laid plans are prone to chronic failure, which takes the edge off any threat kids may sense they pose to the heroes. Engaging animation and a whimsical setting round out this fun cartoon.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
