Although this show is tame and can be watched by anyone from 4 years old up, kids may not find this show very interesting. (Is that why complete season dvds haven't been released yet?) I was born in 1970, and I didn't find the show very interesting when I was little. That is probably even more true with kids today. The cliffhanger endings may also distress very young children. As for the values, on the whole they're good since this series is all about helpfulness and loyalty. On the other hand, there's sexism. If gender roles were the only issue we'd be able to overlook this since this show was made in sexist times. But there's another problem; Timmy's staunch objection to everything he considers sissy. While that was understandable and arguably acceptable back then, a reality check is in order for kids today.
