KLAUS is an animated comedy adventure in which a new postman’s arrival on a remote northern island, and his friendship with the toymaker Klaus, marks the start of the end to a generations old feud and to a new Christmas tradition.

Threat and horror

Frequent scenes of mild threat include sight of scary skeleton toys and puppets hanging in a dark room, knives covering walls, and scary sight of a rope noose on a gallows used as a bell ringer. There are references to being chopped up and scattered in the woods, and to axe murderers, all of which are just imagined fears.

Violence

Mild and undetailed scenes of comic violence show people clashing and fighting each other with kitchen knives, spades and household implements. Spears are thrown but there is no injury. There are also scenes of mild slapstick.

There is very mild bad language. Rude humour includes references to 'soiling of the pants' and sight of a man with his bottom burning after he falls onto a burning fireplace.
