Parent reviews for Meet the Robinsons
The Robinsons believe that if you have a dream, you should go for it no matter how outlandish it may seem. That failure is needed for it leads to success in the future. So, to make those dreams come true, if you feel the need to wear your clothes backwards or invent a thing-a-ma-jig that squirts peanut butter and jelly then go for it!
Although the pluses far out weigh the minus points, here are some things which might need attention: One character does have a black eye and refers to being beat up. The scenes which are few but may be dark and scary to some small children occur in the alternate future that Bowler Hat Guy unknowingly concocts.
There is only mild cartoon peril and no drugs or drinking per say except for a reference to being over-caffeinated.

Let it [ your hate ] fester and you will be capable of wonderfully horrid things!
Make the right choices in life and you will not only make your life happy and fulfilling, but the lives of those you touch. Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.

Family is the basic building block to all life, if not only to true love and comfort in times of need. To clothe and feed the helpless and abandoned is a wonderful, Christ like form of love.
The multi-generational relationships, especially in the future, are endearing. The Robinson clan seems loony at first, but as the future continues, they quickly grow on you as exactly the kind of brood Lewis would naturally be drawn to and with good reason, but you have to see it to understand.
It may not be as touching as Finding Nemoas technically brilliant as Carsor as parent-appealing as The Incredibles,but Meet the Robinsons is an entertaining step in the right direction for Disney's non-Pixar offerings. And who doesn't love an orphan hero? Plucky orphans are perfect protagonists in children's adventures. Whether human AnnieOliver Twist or animal Stuart LittleWilburthey're the ultimate underdogs, and only the most hardened heart could root against them. Luckily, Lewis is not the typical orphan suffering under the rule of cruel-hearted adults.
He's surrounded by compassionate grown ups who genuinely want to foster his brilliance -- from the orphanage's director Angela Bassett to his encouraging science teacher, and of course, the Robinsons, who all believe that mistakes and failures only make you better.
