Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tooned In is a fun, family-friendly game show featuring kids answering trivia questions about Nickelodeon cartoons. There's nothing violent, but players slow to answer get slimed, and on occasion, cartoon scenes featuring mild (and often comical) fantasy violence are described. Viewers are also invited to play along in real time using a NickPlay.com app.
Is It Any Good?
This entertaining series features young folks answering lots of trivia questions about their favorite Nickelodeon cartoons, like Sponge Bob Square Pants and The Loud House. Adding to the fray is the messy sliming and the suspense of the special prize round.
Nickelodeon fans of all ages will enjoy shouting answers at their TV sets, but they're also invited to play along in real time using the NickPlay.com app. Meanwhile, those less familiar with the network will be introduced to all of its offerings. Tooned In is a great promotional vehicle, but it's also lots of fun.
Did we miss something on diversity?
