Parents Beware: Foul-Mouthed Cartoon Continues Netflix Run

By Movieguide® Staff

With Netflix’s latest announcement of the renewal of its animated series, BIG MOUTH, Movieguide® again warns parents of the series’ excessive sexual content and the specific danger it poses to children.

Netflix announced that BIG MOUTH Season 7 would follow the same formula as previous seasons, with obscene sexual content condensed into 30-minute episodes.

The particular threat to children is the colorful animation style that could easily be mistaken as appropriate. Instead, BIG MOUTH would expose unsuspecting viewers to what Tim Winter equated to “child pornography.”

Movieguide® previously reported:

Netflix continues to push immoral and vile content. Recently, Parents Television Council president Tim Winter condemned the animated series BIG MOUTH as a “pornographic” cartoon that puts “millions of children” in danger.

“Netflix needs to be hit and hit hard for airing a pornographic cartoon series called BIG MOUTH,” Winter wrote in a recent press release. “It is the most utterly sickening ‘entertainment’ I’ve seen in my 40 years in this industry—and dangerous to the millions of children who view it or the adults who may be encouraged to act-out because of it.”

Winter continues: “Why do I say BIG MOUTH is the vilest thing I’ve seen in 40 years of working in Hollywood—and probably the most dangerous? First, it’s a cartoon. This attracts naïve, impressionable children. It also disarms parents, who are more apt to let their kids watch a cartoon. ‘How bad could a cartoon be?’ they will think.”

Unfortunately, BIG MOUTH could be the most immoral cartoon on the streaming service.

“BIG MOUTH is mental poison, and it is potentially fuel for child predators,” Winter notes, adding examples of some of the series content: “The plots in BIG MOUTH center around middle-school children entering puberty. The first five minutes of the very first episode show a close-up of a 13-year-old boy’s private parts. Another episode shows a girl talking to her private parts.”
