Common Sense Media: Best Cartoons for Kids

5 of 15

‘Atomic Betty’

Synopsis: Spunky space-travelling heroine is positive model for kids.

Age: 6+

Rating: * * * *

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this action-adventure cartoon centers on a smart, self-assured tween girl who’s more concerned with saving the world from evil domination than she is with stereotypical pursuits like popularity and fashion. Betty rises above the influence of a superficial mother and a self-absorbed classmate to devote her time to preserving galactic peace, which she does with the help of two loyal friends. The battles between good and evil do include some violence, but it's fairly mild (a few laser guns, some kicks and scrapes) and very short-lived. In other words, as cartoons go, this is a surprisingly well-rounded option for kids. - Common Sense Media
