A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
This show is intended to entertain, not educate, though kids might learn a bit about 1970s cars and fashion.
Good always triumphs over evil, though usually through the use of force.
Positive Role Models
Diana/Wonder Woman is shown as a powerful and competent woman who stands out as the rare female superhero. Many victims are powerless women.
Violence & Scariness
There is mild and cartoonish violence in each episode, i.e. "bad guys" are knocked down rather than shot, but there is always some type of fight scene.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some attention is paid to romance; characters sometimes give each other pecks on the lips. Wonder Woman's costume leaves little to the imagination.

Products & Purchases

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Villains on the show may theatrically smoke a pipe, and rarely characters are shown in a bar with drinks on the table.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wonder Woman is a relatively gentle outing in the superhero genre, as well as one of the rare ones with a female at its center. Episodes have a minimum of dialogue, and a maximum of showy action scenes, often with sci fi or fantasy elements, that may be attractive to grade schoolers and young tweens. But parents might be concerned with how sexualized Wonder Woman is, in her tiny costume and with men making many comments on her beauty, as well as with the mostly mild and campy fight scenes that occur on each show.
Is It Any Good?
It's wonderful seeing a woman who is both noble and powerful, more powerful, in fact, than any of the show's villains, as she proves over and over again. It's less wonderful that she's wearing a teeny-weeny costume while she's doing it. And that while she's shown as strong, she's often called upon to rescue "powerless" women victims.
Nonetheless, Wonder Woman is lots of fun. Kids and parents will enjoy laughing together over the cheesy sets and costumes, as well as the silly sci fi/fantasy plot elements. The show's particularly great whenever any of Wonder Woman's Amazon relatives appear, or when Wonder Woman must pay a visit to her Paradise Island.
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.
