Flashback scenes are set in the 40s and feature dated, emotionally distant and dismissive parenting from Beatrice's father in particular which can easily be interpreted as abusive. No physical abuse.

The show has a very refreshing stance on this: Bojack wants forgiveness from a close he harmed, that friend is on his deathbed and refuses to forgive. It is 1000% the right choice.


Bojack also harms several characters, two of them to the point where they get PTSD. They break off contact. Several other character break off contact with Bojack too.

[SPOILERS] S2E1: BoJack's parents smash plates and yell at one another. S4E1: In a flashback, BoJack's grandfather smashes a glass and yells at his wife for what is clearly untreated grief. She is deemed hysterical and lobotomized. S4E5: BoJack's mom makes a joke about being hit by her husband. S4E11: Beatrice's father demeans his grieving, lobotomized wife for being a "bad mother." S5E4: Mention of a husband choking his wife. S5E11: BoJack punches a wall and chokes Gina, who clearly suffers from PTSD symptoms afterwards.

The in-universe show Philbert in Season 5 sometimes parodies this ,but the show itself makes sure that depictions of violence against women are not glamorized albeit Gina being choked in the penultimate episode can still be very upsetting to watch

Young Bojack is emotionally abused in several flashbacks, and hit by his father on at least one occasion. A teenage Diane is also shown to be emotionally abused by her family. In S4E10 it is revealed someone has been drugging a teenager without her consent throughout the season, to the point that she passes out. In S5E4 we hear audio of a father verbally abusing and threatening his daughter. In S6E13 the same father verbally abuses her at her college.

S4E10: Mentions of a pedophile molesting children. S5E1: Flip attempts to pull off BoJack's robe, insisting he be naked on camera. S5E4: Significant discussion of misogyny and sexual harassment.

Granted not NEARLY as bad as other shows but I feel like it’s still worth mentioning that it still occasionally happens even if the punchline isn’t men getting assaulted in itself but some still be triggered by the topic. Such as S4E5 when BoJack recalls surviving a molestation attempt it is viewed as actually horrific, the point of that bit was more that it was the consequence of Beatrice not driving him home after a bad choir performance

Bojack is about to have sex with an underage girl and her mother comes in to see her sitting on his lap. The mother yells at bojack and tells him to leave. The girl later has a PTSD episode/ anxiety attack when she sees him after years of him being gone and is mentioned to have PTSD from the event

Not depicted on screen,but there are occasional references to the attacks such as BoJack hyperbolically declaring Todd's rock opera is worse than a hundred 9/11s and Wanda proposes a special where David Copperfield makes the World Trade Center disappear (she's been in a coma since the 80s) and the rest of the executives awkwardly dance around the subject by only addressing Copperfield 's lack of cultural relevancy in 2015

Can't recall the specifics regarding medical needles, though drug use is a major theme, but there's a running gag in season 6 about people getting stabbed by a baby porcupine's needles, and the resulting stab wounds are at one point mistaken for drug needles.

It's revealed early on that BoJack's former friend Herb has cancer and a few months left to live. S1E8 involves BoJack visiting Herb, who is receiving medical treatment from home. S2E3 depicts Herb's funeral. He was in remission at the time he died, but the episode involves discussion of cancer.

in a fictional tv-show-within-the-tv-show, a character is revealed to have created a scapegoat for crimes that he committed, who he believed in so much, he forgot he was responsible. this could be misread as an "evil alter" situation.

Some scenes show events from the past and present occurring simultaneously - it's used as a storytelling technique and there are no actual changes to reality or timelines.

Not an autistic one but Sarah Lynn has a pretty public celebrity meltdown in her debut episode (that involves self harm as an extra TW). We later see a much more serious example in Season 4 where we see a flashback showing BoJack’s grandmother having a public mental breakdown

The title sequence for seasons 1 and 3 contains several seconds of harsh camera flashes. S3E10: BoJack throws a party that has strobelights (4:00-7:30). S4E10: Light strobe effect (intermittently 0:00-1:40). S5E12: Several seconds of dim but rapid strobe right after the title sequence. S6E13: Dim but fast strobe effect for several seconds (24:30).

S2E4: a character is made fun of for her weight gain, and it's later said in S3E11 that fat jokes prompted her to develop an eating disorder. S4E8: Hollyhock is insecure about her weight and BoJack makes insensitive comments about it. S4E11: A young Beatrice is mocked for being fat. There are some other discussions of weight but most of it is played seriously, and most characters who make fat jokes, including the above, are shown in a poor light.

Throughout season 4, BoJack's senile mother mistakes him for a woman named Henrietta. However, this is not malicious and the misgendering is not the main issue.

In S1E8 a group of protestors are shown with homophobic signs. There's also misogynistic comments in episodes like S2E7 and S4E5. S4E2 mentions Nazis and a character blames Jewish people for WW2. Beatrice sometimes makes outdated comments about gay people and immigrants. S4E5 also has a minor character make racist comments while hitting on Diane. A character in S5E4 makes comments about many different groups (Jewish people, Swedish people, women, etc) but not very graphic and it is exaggerated to being cartoonish. S5E6 has BoJack's dad use homophobic language including the word "q*eer" in a derogatory context.

In-universe at least, the series does have pretty nuanced female characters and frequently satirizes the misogynistic, male gazy side of Hollywood. One notable example however is the Season 5 premiere dealing with concerns that there’s too many scenes sexualizing women in an in-universe TV show that Bojack is in and the director tried to balance out by subjecting BoJack to one even though he’s uncomfortable at the idea

S3E2 It’s heavily implied that Cuddly Whiskers and Jill Pill were in a rather kinky realtionship (in addition to the fact that they were actual boss-assistant) but the most we see is them flirting with Jill expressing a desire to be “punished” later. Yolanda’s family also gives Todd a gimp suit in another episode

Possibly implied in S4E11 as Beatrice refers to herself as a “ruined woman” which seems to suggest that the one night stand with Butterscotch that rendered her pregnant was her first time having sex. It also nearly happens in S3E2 with two teenagers ,but it’s interrupted before it could commence and even then one of them is a closeted asexual trying to avoid having sex
