Disgusting and sinister

No child should see this. It is disgustingly violent and it seems to be made intentionally to look like a regular cartoon, as this is how the episodes begin, but it gradually gets more and more violent until it becomes sickening. Parents who only watch for the first few minutes would be fooled.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (46):
Kids say (476):

This site, in spite of its cheery name, is not for kids. Frankly, it's not for anyone. It is nightmare-inducing stuff. Characters lose their guts, brains, and eyeballs. It's as intentionally gross as it can be. There is nothing redeeming about this site. It is overwhelmingly commercial as well.

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.
