T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 No Score Yet Mike, Lu and Og: Season 1 (TV, 1999-2001) The music and the characters' costumes also add to the fun. Slight stereotypes and sometimes-whiny characters are the only potential causes for concern -- overall, it's not too shabby. - Common Sense Media EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet 2 Stupid Dogs: Season 1 (TV, 0-1995) Content-wise, it's not exactly a classic. - Common Sense Media EDIT

No Score Yet The Addams Family: Season 2 (TV, 0-1993) This is a darkly funny series that will definitely help kids grasp the concept that it's OK to be different. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Popeye: Season 1 (TV, 0-1961) In the end, the show succeeds in sending the message that Popeye triumphs thanks to his good deeds, rather than any bad habits. - Common Sense Media EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet The Magilla Gorilla Show: Season 1 (TV, 0-1965) The only thing this series is guilty of is poking fun. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Yogi Bear Show: Season 1 (TV, 0-1962) Yogi's trademark saying -- "I'm smarter than your average bear" -- is catchy and endearing, because his lack of cleverness is usually what gets him into trouble in the first place. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Smurfs: Season 1 (TV, 1981-1989) Overall, it's a very entertaining show for the younger set. - Common Sense Media EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Garfield and Friends: Season 1 (TV, 1988-1994) It's safe to say that kids won't learn much from watching Garfield and Friends, but as "fluffy," mental-break cartoons go, at least it isn't full of violence and innuendo - Common Sense Media EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Season 1 (TV, 1990-1996) Captain Planet and the Planeteers is fun and retro, but it's not your best bet for younger grade-schoolers. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?: Season 1 (TV, 0) Well-rounded humor is by far the show's best quality: There's a laugh for everyone, and kids will love how Scooby always runs away from trouble. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 95% Batman: The Animated Series: Season 1 (TV, 1992-1995) Overall, this complex, well-made series is further proof (if anyone still needs it) that animation isn't always automatically kid friendly. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Superman: The Animated Series: Season 1 (TV, 1996-2000) Superman's character symbolizes nobility in our popular culture, and he's always defending the greater good. - Common Sense Media EDIT

3/5 100% Batman Beyond: Season 3 (TV, 1999-2001) It's stylishly and elegantly animated... but it's probably not the best fit for pre-tween viewers. - Common Sense Media EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Jetsons: Season 1 (TV, 1962-1987) Even though the shows values are a little behind the times for today's standards, the characters exude mutual respect -- and that's something that people and families from all walks of life can learn from. - Common Sense Media EDIT

3/5 100% The Flintstones: Season 1 (TV, 1960-1966) Playing out like an animated version of The Honeymooners, The Flinstones will amuse adults with its slick one-liners regarding marriage, making a living, and fulfilling the American dream. - Common Sense Media EDIT
