Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • All violence is shown in a stylized, cartoon manner, with no blood or gore ever shown.
  • During the open credits of each episode, a wall of human bones is shown briefly.
  • A man is knocked unconscious in Chapter 1.
  • A woman melts to death at the end of Chapter 6. Not graphic at all, as it's barely shown


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some frogs on the steamboat is seen with a pipe in Chapter 6.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The overall tone of the series is dark and scary.
  • The Beast in "The Old Grist Mill" is nightmarish scary and threatening.
  • The trees in the forest are often shown with scary faces.
  • In Chapter Two, the residents of Potsfield are humans with carved jack-o-lantern heads that may be spooky. There is also a short scene of animated skeletons crawling from a grave.
  • In Chapter Seven, Auntie Whispers is a frightening figure with distorted and grotesque features. The two main characters are threatened by a spirit with a scary face, who threatens to eat them.
  • In Chapter Eight, the two main characters are in danger of freezing to death. This is portrayed in a rather realistic way and younger viewers may need reassurance.
  • In Chapter Nine, two children are shown drowning. Their fates are unresolved until the next chapter. While all ends well, this is another scene where younger children might need some reassurance.
  • Official description to Australia's PG rating in DVD: Scary scenes.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In Chapter Ten, when the woodsman flashes a lantern on the main antagonist of the series, we see a split second of his appearance. A very creepy, wood-like man with holes and deformed faces on the torso area. Again, for a split second, most people wouldn't get a good look unless they paused the scene.
