13 and up should be fine

I've let my eleven year old brother watch The Mighty Boosh and he adores it (as do I, it's one of my favourite shows). At times it can be a little sexually cringe-worthy but no nudity and no explicit references to sex, and some of humor can be a bit crude. Younger kids might find it a bit scary, as it is certainly far out there and alot of the costumes are quite spooky and the main characters do deal alot with escaping these eerie villians, but I think children over 13 will be absolutely fine with it, perhaps a bit iffy with ages 10-12, but I doubt that children under the age of 7 or 8 will really get any of the jokes. There isn't a lot of swearing but they do slip 'f-k' and others in here and there but it's not full on.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 10+
I should preface this by saying that I've watched ALL THREE SERIES, not just Old Gregg on Youtube.
