Not appropriate language for younger children

I thought Trolls would be a cute show for my younger children. I just went in to check on them and the one character says to Poppy “That Guy is a manipulative jerk” umm excuse me that is not nice! I shut it right off and will not be letting my children watch it again.

Autistic Adults who love colors

Great Movie for Autistic Adults who love colors, not everyone with autism is the same, the kindness displayed my Poppy creates many teachable and meaningful moments

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11 ):
Kids say (10 ):

This whimsical, psychedelic animated series is a seamless, laugh-filled continuation of the hit 2016 film, complete with peppy musical numbers and an offbeat blend of animation styles. Overly enthusiastic scrapbooker extraordinaire Queen Poppy is back, accompanied by her curmudgeonly misfit buddy Branch (Skylar Astin) -- and that's a good thing.

But with 52 11-minute cartoons on deck, we've been given plenty of time to get to know some of the more peripheral characters better, and they do not disappoint. Four-legged, long-necked Cooper (Ron Funches) is a punchline-dropping, well-meaning weirdo who could get excited over a speck of lint, while the mysterious Smidge (the tiny "strongwoman" Troll with the raspy voice) turns out to be an ambitious entrepreneur -- and sometimes secret agent! Kids should get a kick out of these new adventures, and learning more about daily life in Troll Village. That said, there's quite a bit of potty humor in Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, including piles of dog poop or glittery Trolls frequently seen farting clouds of sparkles into the air, which could irritate some parents.
