MOON MAN is a animated feature for children, in which the man in the moon comes to Earth and learns about friendship, while also helping a scientist defeat a power-hungry President.

In one scene a man floats off into space. In this case, the scene carries a sense of justice rather than danger. In another scene a character is shown imprisoned in a cage, looking sad, but the plot soon moves on and the character's situation improves.

There is a scene in which some animated hearts are shown beating, along with a lava lamp and music playing to suggest romance.

There is a single use of very mild bad language.

More information about the film is available for grown-ups on the main BBFC website or the free BBFC app.

SAVING SANTA is an animated feature about an elf who rises to the challenge when Santa is kidnapped.

Threat

There are moments of mild threat when bad characters are menacing, but there are also jokes showing that they are not very scary really, such as when two henchmen show more interest in eating pancakes than looking for Santa. When Santa is kidnapped and interrogated, he remains calm and does not seem at all afraid.
