Anne-Marie flashes her undies at the camera several times, whilst trying on new dresses. Charlie and Itchy howl upon her doing one of them.

King Gator is a large, apparent transvestite/transgender alligator, who takes a liking to Charlie's voice, and sings a song entitled, "Let's Make Music Together".

Charlie is hit by a car and killed in the beginning of the movie.

During Charlie's escape from the pound, the guards open fire upon him and Itchy.

Carface tries to shoot Charlie with a Tommy gun. He is hit, but, due to already being dead, is not injured. The scene is very slapstick and played for laughs.

The final confrontation between Charlie and Carface and his gang is a fairly serious, but brief, fight involving punching, kicking, and biting. In the end Carface is eaten by an alligator (implied but not shown) and Charlie drowns after saving Anne Marie.

One mouthed "damn" The word "craps" is showing on the sign in casino.

A big group of dogs is shown drinking and smoking, in a bar, fairly briefly. Race announcer has a cigar in his mouth.

Carface is always seen with a cigar.

Carface got Charlie drunk.


Charlie has nightmare, where he's caught up in a mystical storm and dragged down to Hell, featuring a pretty scary skeletal winged demon boatman and assorted other fiery demons large and small. This scene is brief but intense.

When Carface finds out that Charlie is still alive and comes up with a plan (with Killer) to kill him, his face morphs into the Devil. This may be frightening to small children.

Carface neglects and verbally abuses Anne-Marie causing her to break down crying, this maybe upsetting for some viewers.

Anne-Marie (for whatever reason) comes down with a lung infection, which consequently involves her coughing HELLISHLY.

Later a large demon is shown waiting to collect the dog and calling it, but it is chased away by an "angel".

Overall, this is a little more dark and mature for a children's film. Parents should view it before allowing young children to watch it.

One thing that makes this movie extremely disturbing is that the child actress who voiced Anne-Marie, Judith Barsi, was abused and murdered by her father.

Due to the intense subject matter, it is unlikely that the film would receive a G rating today.

Suggested MPAA Rating update: PG for thematic elements, peril, some scenes of drinking and smoking, and brief mild language.
