This animated film about a mad scientist’s assistant features plenty of animated violence, mostly centering on an animal character that is immortal, yet doesn’t want to live. He uses explosives, poison and other devices to try and take his life, and is constantly putting himself in danger. While no explicit gory details are seen and the actions are portrayed within a humorous context, some parents and children may be disconcerted by these portrayals and the character’s lack of respect for his life. A scatological joke and a couple of veiled sexual remarks are included, as well as the depiction of a female character showing a large amount of cleavage. An invisible man tells others he is not wearing pants. One mild expletive and about a half-dozen terms of Deity are uttered. Women are often preyed upon and used by men for their own selfish interests.
