Bad behavior brings some laughs but not many life lessons.

The actors are amazing and all the characters are funny! They remind me that you can be funny at an older teen age.

Family Fun Show

Really fun and funny show that I think the younger kids will enjoy! Love the diversity in the cast and the acting is top notch!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

While younger kids will get a kick out of the show's seemingly endless physical comedy gags, parents will be turned off by the character's lack of integrity and the absence of consequences for their behavior. On the surface, Warped! is a frothy and harmless 30 minutes of laughs for the young elementary school set. Look a little closer, though, and you'll see an alarming reliance on sarcasm, mild insults set to a laugh track, and dishonest behavior in order to get those giggles. While Ruby is portrayed as generally kind and inclusive, Milo is often selfish and self-serving. The other characters are similarly one-dimensional and the only minority character, Harley, is often depicted as lazy and as a bad employee. Add in that the kids hardly ever get into trouble for their antics regardless of their severity -- in one episode they even go so far as to break into a car and drive it through the comic store's wall -- and this is a show that's not worth anyone's time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
