The show has gotten away with a couple drug references and certain genuinely disturbing behavior. I wouldn't imagine "thematic elements" being an issue, though.

Well, it's TV-Y so I wouldn't expect a film adaption to be rated PG. 

 

I just hate how supposed "kids movies" are rated PG. How is a film suited for children not acceptable for children at the same time?  :lol: Cinderella getting the dreaded "thematic elements" is testament.

 

Granted, I'd say most PG films are G-rated, but the producers ask for a PG rating from the MPAA. Hence, why EVERY kids movie uses "mild action" (the film has a few actual moments of tension), "mild rude humor" (someone farts once in the film, or a pie gets thrown at someone's face), "mild thematic elements" (kid is an orphan, parents are divorced, everything isn't sunshine and rainbows) or "mild language" (the word "stupid" or "moron" is said).

 

Then when a film like Coraline or Rango or Fantastic Mr. Fox obtains a PG, parents flip out and wonder why this was considered suitable for kids. It's because Coraline, Rango and Fantastic Mr. Fox actually earned their PG  B) while Despicable Me, Frozen, etc... all would have been G rated 15 years ago.

I know with the rating system the way it is today. almost every pre 2000 Disney Animation would have obtained a PG rating.

Well this is funny timing. I just got back from my ENG Comp II class today where we watched an ethnography documentary on "Bronies" for help with  our ethnography paper. Wow, I had no idea, lol.
