LUIS AND THE ALIENS is a sci-fi animation in which a young boy neglected by his UFO loving father meets three aliens who are on a mission to Earth.

Threat

A man has a nightmare in which his childhood self is chased by a large, insect-like alien. Later, the alien appears and chases the main characters. However, it does not harm anyone and any threat is brief, broken up by comic moments, and places a focus on the hero's resourcefulness. There are also scenes in which the friendly aliens tie up and hide a woman while impersonating her.

Theme

There are comic instances of burping, references to the shape of bottoms, a friendly alien's failed attempts at chatting up women and some very mild innuendo.

Language

There is infrequent very mild bad language. The main character is also bullied at school for his father's love of aliens.

In one sequence an alien unwittingly drinks detergent and proceeds to burp bubbles during future scenes. However, the work does not glamorise or promote potentially harmful imitable behaviour.
