The babies appear naked from time to time, but only their butts are shown.

The show got even raunchier, during its last season. Prior to their cancellation. Some of which make the first five seasons of the show blush.


Mostly just verbal fights and mild slapstick fighting. Bumped heads are probably the most violent thing on the show, and even those scenes are tame.

A lot tamer compared to shows like "SpongeBob SquarePants".

In the episode "Sand Ho!" The babies play pirates and Tommy and Angelica have a sword fight using sticks as swords.


Hardly any bad language whatsoever.

The word "Spaz" has been used by Angelica in the first "Tales from the Crib" DVD movie, however.

The episode "Word of the Day" parodies what happens when a young child picks up a swear word, nothing is actually said and whenever the swear is said various sound effects like a truck horn, jackhammer and screaming are heard.

A character is named "Lipschitz," which is pronounced "lip-shits."


A few minor adult characters smoke in early episodes.


The babies often get into perilous situations but always escape unharmed.

The facts behind Chuckie's Mom may upset some viewers.

9/50 Suitable for All Ages
