Content advisory: This program is a celebration of traditional animation and storytelling. Some stories may have a different pace and more abstract symbolism than children who have primarily watched CG animation are used to. Lili has scenes of a storm and danger that may be too intense for the most sensitive viewers. In Volcano Island, a tiger eats another animal in a very brief scene with no blood. Negative Space explores the loss of the main characters father (as an adult).
