The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

It teaches about the importance of having rules, the consequences of one’s actions, the importance of patience, and other important life lessons.

Positive Messages

Family, friendship, and growing up are major themes. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Tip often resists parental and teacher advice when he's upset, but he learns his lessons and makes things right in the end. Tip’s parents are gentle but firm. Mommy is a stay-at-home wife and mother, and Daddy goes to work. 

Violence & Scariness

On a few occasions, characters trip or lose their balance, but no one gets hurt. Tip and his friends sometimes put spells on people they don't like to hopefully make them disappear. At times, Tip and his friends may loudly disagree, give silent treatments, or speak tersely to one another, but there's no physical aggression.

Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The series is based on a popular Italian book series.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Tip the Mouse is a kid’s animated series that contains lots of positive lessons and is based on a popular Italian book series. Tip is sometimes resistant to rules and other advice, but understanding adults offer clear and positive guidance to help him learn and make things right. Family and friendship are also major themes. It’s not the most action-filled series, and the family roles are classically traditional, but most young viewers will be able to identify with what Tip is feeling and understand what he's being taught.

What's the story?

Based on the popular Italian kid’s book series, TIP THE MOUSE is a children’s CGI animated TV show about the adventures of a curious little mouse. Tip (voiced by Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld) lives with Mommy (Serra Hirsch), Daddy (Dave Wells), and baby sister Tippy in a tiny house located in a little village in a far corner of a meadow. He loves to play, especially with friends like Jody the chipmunk (Erica Schroeder) and his teddy bear. But growing up has its challenges, and Tip is learning important life lessons along the way. 

Is it any good?

This pleasant series offers lots of life lessons that young viewers can identify with. Like any child, Tip is sometimes resistant to the rules, loses patience with friends, and can be a little sneaky from time to time. But while he can be stubborn, he is not disrespectful to adults, and he responds positively to his parents’ gentle, but firm, guidance. Ultimately, Tip the Mouse creates a story world that reflects children’s real-life feelings, experiences, and behaviors while offering some advice to help them get through various parts of growing up.
