Question Is this cartoon R- or PG rated?

First of all, I hope this post is within the guidelines.

Being from Norway and all, I'm a little confused on the differences between PG and R-rated entertainment.

I thought I'd put a warning before releasing the following cartoon for my "flash cartoon" site, but I'm not sure how to rate it.

How should I rate this cartoon?

I'm also not 100% down on America's classification system, but that looks like PG-13 to me. (suggestions of ***, but no actual nudity/*** scenes)

It's not that different from the infamous coffee shop scene from When Harry Met Sally, and that certainly didn't receive an R rating. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Thank you for the quick response!

PG-13 it is, then :-)

Always a challenging issue and certainly a great question to ask http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I saw it http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

IMHO, rather than an imperfect "rating" like R or PG or whatever, consider a "warning" like....


May not be suitable for children. Does not contain nudity or profanity. Adult supervision/discression advised. And so on.... The link to the .swf page could be a .gif thumbnail which would also provide some guidence.

HTH in some way and best of luck.

Thanks, Steve.

I think I'll make a "splash" page for that particular cartoon with a warning as you suggested.

I'll also use a thumbnailed gif with PG-13 written on it :-)
