Sarah claims in her story to Toby that she has a wicked stepmother but it’s obviously her teenage angst exaggerating things, as far as we can tell she’s stern but not abusive

While there is a lot of duplicity in the movie, the only bit that seems like gaslighting to me is a scene in a junkyard where a puppet character tries to convince an amnesiac that they are looking for their old toys rather than their abducted brother. The relationship between hero and villain is complicated and mildly psychologically abusive. The hero rejects this treatment.

The other comment is correct, and the scene feels a little claustrophobic. The “burial” is in the form of having items piled onto someone so they are burdened. No one is buried in the ground.

(This is a rather graphic description) A puppet takes out his own eyeballs with his fingers, rolls them around and then eats them, only to have them reappear back in their sockets. These characters also swap their heads around and use their limbs as bats for a game. This is all done while singing.

There’s an adult presenting immortal being in love with a teenage girl in-universe ,but the worst the girl experiences is a sequence where she’s in a ball gown dancing with him. Many viewers and critics have observed that the movie is something of a metaphor for Sarah’s adolescent awakening ,but it’s presented in a pretty chaste matter with anything sexual being stuff read between the lines

No obvious deaths of any characters, puppets or real people/animals are seen or implied. There's a battle scene with some puppet goblins, and these weird creature things they ride on, and some of them are knocked around a bit, but it's nothing graphic or violent. It's kid-friendly.

No. The main character's parents are split and both in relationships with other people but we never see the mother so don't know the details beyond a brief pan over newspaper clippings in a scrapbook at the start.

Some might consider it obscene to see a dwarf human-like puppet creature peeing into a fountain. You don't see any nudity. The puppet is clothed and is seen from behind, but you see and hear the urine stream and the puppet is positioned in such a way as to closely resemble how a human male urinates.

Not unless you count David Bowie’s epic bulge (I say this with absolute sincerity, the outline is very visible and sometimes distracting).
