is the Cuphead Show! suitable for children?
In spite of The Cuphead Show! Being an animation, the show itself tackles some adult themes that children may find difficult to understand or even scary at times. So if we had our way, we would recommend not showing your kids this cartoon as it features animated violence, rude humor, alcohol references and partial nudity.
But of course that’s just our recommendation and you know your kids best! It might be worth your while to check it out first and see if this slapstick toon is right for your own kids.
