The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

None, although in some episodes, the characters either talk about sex or they make a reference about having sex (ex. Carl says to harriette in one episode, "lets go upstairs and really make up").

Episodes like "Dog Day Halloween," "Stakeout," "Robonerd 2," "The Good, the Bad, and the Urkel," and others have very mild and humurous fight scenes in them.

Warning: believe it or not there is one arguably R-rated moment of brutal violence: in "Born to be Mild" we see Eddie bruised from being beaten by the Dragon gang. Fairly graphic for a network sitcom. "Seinfeld" got away with R-rated content (F-word in episode). Parental discretion advised.

Some episodes have some mild profanity in them, such as damn, hell, ass, and jackass. Though not too often.

One episode has the "n" word written on Laura's locker.

Some episodes show Carl, Eddie and though very rarely, Steve drinking beer.

In the episode, "Life of a Party," Steve accidentally gets drunk when a bully gives him too many cups of fruit punched that he spiked.

The episodes "Stevil" and "Stevil II" are pretty disturbing in nature. Not for kids at least under 12.
