Stories for KIDS...


Armed with an overzealous affinity for martial arts, Karate Chop Cop solves even the most benign problems with a well-placed karate chop - much to the dismay of his co-workers, who struggle to fight crime using good old-fashioned 'chop-free' police-work.

In episode #1, Karate Chop Cop, his alpaca partner Officer Henley and rookie recruit Officer Becky try to get an old lady's cat out of a tree. What could go wrong? Lots, when Karate Chop Cop is on the scene!

For Parents and Teachers

To determine if Karate-Chop Cop #1 is right for your child, consider the following content:
(Caution: Spoiler Alert!)

  • as the name suggests, there's a LOT of karate-chopping in this story!  Karate-Chop Cop chops down a tree with his bare hands and later in the story, he attempts to karate-chop a old lady who he mistakenly believes to be a criminal (Karate-Chop Cop's frustrated partner Officer Henley rescues her)
  • Officer Henley laments about how 'dumb' Karate-Chop Cop is

Topics to discuss with children:

  • Do you think it's fair that Henley does all of the police work but Karate-Chop Cop gets all of the credit?  Why do you think the Chief praises Karate-Chop Cop so much?
  • How would you have gotten the cat out of the tree?
