Violence

There is occasional mild slapstick violence as animal characters comically bash one another. There is no blood or injury detail.

Language

There are several uses of mild language.

Other issues include occasional very mild threat as both a large meteor and smaller meteorites approach the planet, and when characters are chased by a family of villainous flying reptiles. There is also infrequent very mild innuendo and very mild toilet humour. One character from time to time holds a knife that appears to have been made from a dinosaur tooth but it is never used as a weapon.

STORKS is an animated film about storks who have stopped delivering babies and now deliver mail order items.

Violence

There are several moments of mild violence in which characters are struck with objects, but this is presented in a slapstick style and no realistic injury is caused. Other slapstick action includes storks crashing into windows, being trapped in machinery and being chased by aeroplanes, although there are no harmful consequences.

In one scene, a stork produces a knife, but not for use as a weapon. There are also moments of mild threat, such as characters being surrounded by a pack of wolves who then hold them prisoner and threaten to eat them. There is no nasty outcome, but rather a comic resolution to the situation.

Language

There is very mild bad language.

There is also some mild rude humour, such as a steam of liquid hitting a stork when a baby urinates while being carried.
