  • Nope. There are other songs by Michael Jackson that would be more appropriate if that's what is needed.

  • No there are no bad words in it and they probably liked the beat of the music.

  • No i liked it at that age. I remember playing the movie when I was younger, and it scared my little sister who was about 4 or so.

  • No not at all I think the video is fun and creative. It might be a little scary, but from what I've seen the kids I've been around loves the video.

  • As a parent I would wonder WHY? But, I don't think it's inappropriate, but not necessarily appropriate either.

  • I heard and saw it when i first came out. My son loves watching it. Not a big deal to us.

  • If it's a halloween thing then prolly not, but i can't see playing it just because. I don't think 6 y/o kids are too young for it.

  • My 6yo is on a whole MJ kick. I showed him the Thriller video on YouTube some months back and he loved it. Then the whole MJ thing happened and they had the CDs readily available at the stores so I picked one up when he was with me and he was like, "Yes!" He's big on "ABC", "Smooth Criminal" and "Bad" now. I see nothing wrong with it for him...but would find it odd a teacher would show Thriller in a school to 1st graders, as many children may easily have nightmares depending on their level of sensitivity.
