A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The top agent team consists of a man and a woman who work well together and appear respectful of each other's talents. Potty humor includes storylines about a high-ranking leader who eats her boogers and a vicious wedgie attack on another prominent figure.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of cartoon bumps, crashes, fist fights, and falls from heights, but no lasting injuries.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this British import cartoon about covert missions and top-secret agencies will have tweens laughing out loud with its witty humor, corny characters, and ridiculous storylines. The only potential eyebrow raiser for parents is the occasional dabble in potty humor (like a world leader who eats her boogers), but kids won't mind the gross factor. Obvious spy genre spoofs, offbeat humor, and the show's unique style might give parents a few giggles as well.
Is It Any Good?
Quirky field agents, ingenious (if not exactly evil) villains, ubiquitous black-suited security officials, and storylines with enough twists and turns to make a figure skater dizzy -- they're the stuff that the most memorable spy stories are made of. Fortunately for tweens, they're also what gives The Secret Show (a British import) its unique appeal.
Adventure-seeking tweens will find a lot to like in this comical cartoon, which is full of multi-tiered secrecy, offbeat characters, and highly unlikely scenarios. Parents who can see past the show's goofiness and occasional potty humor might also enjoy its clever wit and refreshing, retro-styled animation -- as well as the great spoofs on other spy conventions (convoluted plots, agents who always seem to be in the right place at the right time and manage to escape anything that comes their way, and so on).
