TV Shows from your early childhood that wouldn't be aired today
Looking back on my favorite kid programming of the mid-80s has got me thinking....I am damn happy I was born before PC culture ruined things.

Here's a 1984 classic from Nickelodeon! Halloween edition! You Can't Do That On Television!

Ed ed and Eddy and Johnny Bravo would be not only inappropriate, but acts of creative hate

Married with Children. The fat women jokes wouldn’t fly.

Pretty much anything from the time period of Ed Edd and Eddy and Cartoon Network.

What’s funny is people wouldn’t see Ed Edd n Eddy for what it is and that’s that the main characters are just as much antagonists as anyone else. They’re a-holes (it’s an incredible show)

Diff'rent Strokes
Webster

White savior of minorities themes and trying to change them culturally by stuffy Conservative upperclass white males...

Would never get on the air.

I mean Mr. Drummond in the opening theme song literally drives up to an inner-city basketball court in his Limo, hops out with open arms and Arnold and Willis come running and hop into the Limo. He literally snatches them from a basketball court and the show acts like it's like living on Mars for them, being around white people...

And the white people around Mr. Drummond act like Arnold and Willis are from some indigenous tribe nobody's ever seen before.

And Mr. Drummond and all his white morality lessons. . Every episode was about changing them for their own good.

No, it's safe to say this show and Webster wouldn't make it today.

Those shows would definitely still be on.

Even though she wasn't what you'd call "hot", there was something about Moose that made me get a rise in my Levis.

Even as kid I knew it was weird to be attracted to her, but I still was....

re: TV Shows from your early childhood that wouldn't be aired today
old SNL where chevy chase calls richard pryor the n-word.

amazing this wasn't a big deal back then but today watching that makes me wince.

quote:

Interviewer…..Chevy Chase
Mr. Wilson…..Richard Pryor

Interviewer: Alright, Mr. Wilson, you’ve done just fine on the Rorshact.. your papers are in good order.. your file’s fine.. no difficulties with your motor skills.. And I think you’re probably ready for this job. We’ve got one more psychological test we always do here. It’s just a Word Association. I’ll throw you out a few words – anything that comes to your mind, just throw back at me, okay? It’s kind of an arbitrary thing. Like, if I say “dog”, you’d say..?

Mr. Wilson: “Tree”.

Interviewer: “Tree”. [ nods head, prepares the test papers ] “Dog”.

Mr. Wilson: “Tree”.

Interviewer: “Fast”.

Mr. Wilson: “Slow”.

Interviewer: “Rain”.

Mr. Wilson: “Snow”.

Interviewer: “White”.

Mr. Wilson: “Black”.

Interviewer: “Bean”.

Mr. Wilson: “Pod”.

Interviewer: [ casually ] “Negro”.

Mr. Wilson: “Whitey”.

Interviewer: “Tarbaby”.

Mr. Wilson: [ silent, sure he didn’t hear what he thinks he heard ] What’d you say?

Interviewer: [ repeating ] “Tarbaby”.

Mr. Wilson: “Ofay”.

Interviewer: “Colored”.

Mr. Wilson: “Redneck”.

Interviewer: “Junglebunny”.

Mr. Wilson: [ starting to get angry ] “Peckerwood!”

Interviewer: “Burrhead”.

Mr. Wilson: [ defensive ] “Cracker!”

Interviewer: [ aggressive ] “Spearchucker”.

Mr. Wilson: “White trash!”

Interviewer: “Jungle Bunny!”

Mr. Wilson: [ upset ] “Honky!”

Interviewer: “Spade!

Mr. Wilson: [ really upset ] “Honky Honky!”

Interviewer: [ relentless ] “Nigger!”

Mr. Wilson: [ immediate ] “Dead honky!” [ face starts to flinch ]

Interviewer: [ quickly wraps the interview up ] Okay, Mr. Wilson, I think you’re qualified for this job. How about a starting salary of $5,000?

All because of nothing more than a decal on the top of the car. Such dumb thinking on somebody's part. "OH NO. A REBEL FLAG. CANCEL THE TV SHOW."

The movie, however, does still get airtime, and it has the same decal on it.
