Take these facts as you will...

References drag queens and all of the male characters are portrayed as weak. I guided my child to watch something more relevant.

I have a few questions. Why does the Nutty Boy wear a pan on his head and why is he nutty? It just doesn't make any sense.

Is It Any Good?

From animation style to pranks and potty jokes, there is a lot of fun for kids in Netflix's first Brazilian animation show. The Nutty Boy captures fun childhood tropes in all of the ways kids will love. The vibrant colors and exciting misadventures will keep young viewers hooked. Though the characters aren't necessarily setting great behavioral examples, their dedication to friendship is admirable. The saving grace for grownups? Each episode is only about 10 minutes long.
