THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS is a comedy in which two detectives investigate a series of puppet murders.

Sex

There is a scene in which two puppets have sex in a range of positions, before it is implied that the male puppet ejaculates when silly string is expelled around a room. There is a close up shot of a female puppet's genitalia. There are also verbal and visual references to sex toys and pornography, as well as to BDSM when a puppet dominatrix is comically seen 'punishing' a man.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms such as 'bitch' and 'Jesus Christ'.

There are drug references when a woman snorts a fantastical substance. Moderate violence includes brief sight of a blood spurt when a woman is shot.
