A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Characters fight and don't work together very well.
Positive Role Models
Characters don't always treat each other with respect and are sometimes mean-spirited.
Violence & Scariness
Characters engage in slapstick violence against each other (enough that characters say "ow"), and it's intended to be humorous. The friends are sometimes mean to each other -- engaging in moderate verbal hostility and insults.

No bad words used in insults, but a variety of negative language aimed at each other. No actual curse words, but some curse proxies like "stuff the universe" in place of a 4-letter word.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Mighty Ones is an animated series about four friends -- a rock, a twig, a leaf, and a strawberry -- and their daily adventures. Its humor relies heavily on the friends performing slapstick acts of violence against each other and frequent arguments. While there aren't any actual curse words, there's a moderate amount of verbal hostility and some stand-ins for 4-letter words. If parents are looking for shows with good role models and positive life lessons for their kids, they can do better than this show.
Is It Any Good?
The overall premise and strong visual design of the show are the best attributes of The Mighty Ones, but the cartoon falls flat in its execution. The plots are overly simplistic, and the characters don't show much agency in being able to solve their own problems. Rocksy, the ringleader character, is smarter than the other 3 friends, and she often makes jokes at their expense. Twig and Very Berry often engage in slapstick violence, picking the other up and thwacking them into the ground, or threatening to eat the other friend. Kids may enjoy some of the silly gags in this show, but there are other shows that will appeal more to their funny bones and showcase better role models at the same time.
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.
