Not really appropriate for children

"Unless you want your kids to hear Hello Kitty and her friends call one another "Stupid", "Dummy" and "Idiot", and threaten violence against one another "I'm gonna crush you like a grape", then this movie is not appropriate for young children. It seems like the villains in this series of short "furry tails" could be villainous without the hostile words and unnecessary violence. Each episode contains many incidents where one of the animals beats another unnecessarily and calls him/her ugly names. There's not a single moral lesson, such as sharing, helping others, etc., in any of the episodes.
And what's worse, there are numerous jokes/inferences made throughout the series that go way over kids' heads and offer no entertainment value. In fact, even from the perspective of pure infantile entertainment this video doesn't offer much. The characters who are not mean are not really contributing anything to the stories either. There's one episode, in fact, based on the Crocodile Dundee movies from the eighties, the ones with Paul Hogan. What kid gets that? And the story only makes sense if you saw the movies it's inspired by. I find this just plain stupid.
Now I'm looking for a hello kitty video that will contain some positive child-appropriate entertainment. Wish me luck!"
To violent I thought

"We have many Hello Kitty products and I was under the impression that the cute little kitty which can be found everywhere from McDonald's to Scholastic book orders was sweet and innocent. This was the first movie I had ever purchased. There is too much violence in the movie and a lot of name calling ("dummy", "idiot"). I totally agree with the above review from (Mom2MySophia?) .... she's got it all right, it's just inappropriate."
