"Comedy" video site is for older teens, not kids.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Some videos promote unhealthy body image, implying that certain celebrities are fat or ugly.

Violence

In one mock newscast, a gun is held to a puppet's head.

Sex

Many of the videos feature sexual content. One involves a teacher seducing a student, and another features naked groin close-ups.

Language

Swearing is allowed in any posted comments and in the videos. The site's top voting system honor is the "Kick Ass" rating.

Consumerism

Most side ads are for other video sites in its network that focus on comedy, cooking, and skateboarding.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Some videos feature alcohol and drinking. Many poke fun of drunken behavior, but at least one features a paparazzi-like view of celebrity downing a glass of wine at a party.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that although some of the clips are silly and inoffensive on this video posting site, anything goes. There are no message board filters or monitoring, and many videos have bad language and some are racy, especially ones in the Not Safe for Work channel. Even some of the videos in the Clean Comedy channel feature adult behavior like drinking. This site isn't really that funny -- and isn't for younger kids, but anyone any age can easily access it because you don't need to be a member to watch the videos. To post a comment you have to be at least 13, but the site only requires an email address and there's no age confirmation.

booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's it about?

Sponsored by the makers of Funnyordie.com, KUNGFUTODD.COM hosts comedic videos that touch on a number of topics, including politics and recent news. Users can view, vote, and comment on videos and submit their own. Its community section has eight message boards for networking, celebs, and more, but only two -- the user profile and video comment boards -- have any posts.

Is it any good?

KungFuTodd.com has some funny short clips, but very few sections are laugh-out-loud funny or kid-friendly. And, several of the videos are just plain mean -- like the video for "Your Body is a Wonderland," which features before-and-after images of celebs who've put on weight. Other videos are too risqué, like a fake commercial soliciting public hair donations that -- albeit in jest -- features photographs of naked groins. True, the clip opens with a voice announcing that "this is a dirty one," but because the site is accessible to all ages, it's kind of a pointless warning. Other videos, like a mock ad showing a man masturbating using a video game system, don't have any zany disclaimers. And aside from the videos, there really isn't much else to do. Since most of the videos aren't OK for younger kids and there's little else for them to see or do, younger users really can skip it altogether.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it means when something is "not safe for work." What kind of content could a photo or video with that label contain? Why is it inappropriate for public viewing, and for kids to see? What about rude or crude behavior appeals to kids?
