HOP is a children's comedy about the Easter Bunny and a young man who team up in order to save the Easter holidays.


There are occasional uses of very mild bad language such as 'god', 'jerk' and a use of the term 'screw up'.


There are several sequences in which characters face threatening situations or engage in mild violence, but all of these moments are interspersed with comic elements and are undetailed without any realistic sight of injury. Notable moments include a scene in which bunnies are seen shooting darts at humans who fall to the ground, and also a scene in which the Easter Bunny is thrown onto a candy-making machine with ominous looking circular blades, but the threat is quickly resolved with a reassuring outcome.

There are very mild sex references including a comic reference to 'Playboy Bunnies'.

There are also comic moments of rude humour including a scene in which a character appears to 'poop' a pile of sweeties.
