The writers of this show are obviously horror genre fanboys

First season started off great, funny and lovable characters but it all went downhill after the mermaid episode. It had scenes in it from horror movies and you can tell the writers of this show are massive horror fans. Why netflix wants to introduce horror type scenes to kids is beyond comprehension, it's passive child abuse in a way, we are into season 2 now with my 7 and 4 year old and have had to stop watching it, the main character in this season is an evil satanic worshipping half man half goat satyr, what the hell are they thinking this is supposed to be a children's cartoon with a loveable pussy cat! I am on a crusade now to give this show the crap rating it deserves we shouldn't as parents let them think this type of storyline and evil character glamorization is acceptable. Watching this cartoon with any child under 12 years old with probably give them severe psychological damage, insecurity and fear of just general everyday occurrences Don't let them rope you into with the first season there is sort some of brainwashing hidden agenda going on with this program, avoid at all costs!

My 10 year old is scarred.. three years after watching

We've watched the puss n boots movie as a family and all loved it. So when my kids started to watch the puss n boots series, I obviously had no issues with it. My daughter who is now 10 years old, watched the adventures of puss n boots 2-3 years ago on netflix. To this day, she still finds if difficult to fall asleep thinking about the episode where the "spider lady makes puss n boots fall asleep and sucks out his soul." Why in the world would Netflix think this is appropriate for children?! And rated PG? In the "Maturity rating" it says "Mild themes and violence". In comparison, my daughter watches "Teen Titans" with absolutely no issues, and the rating is also "PG" with "Mild animated violence". I definitely think that Netflix need to actually watch the shows they are putting on the kids section, and rerate it the adventures of puss n boots series "PG-13" and include "horror" in the rating information/description. I think every parent with younger kids who have been affected by this series should raise their concern with Netflix as I will be doing after this. In conclusion, I don't believe this series is suitable for children under 13.
