"The Simpsons" isn't an innocent cartoon targeted towards children though. Many cartoons were orginally supposed to be "children's TV", even though I still love to watch them as an adult. But still, "The Simpsons" doesn't even fall into that cathegory, as it's clearly targeted towards a more mature audience. So I can see why some parents wouldn't let their kids watch it, even though it's "just a cartoon".

Saturday Night Live. It's a sketch comedy series that airs here in the USA and sometimes features racy sketches and sexual innuendo.

Same thing with Ren and Stimpy back when it 1st came out.

Yet it looks like an innocent kids cartoon just because it ared on Nickelodeon at the time, but there's quite a lot of gross humor in that show that might of turned off some adults.

Same thing w/ Beavis and Butt-head, too when it 1st came out on MTV in Spring of '93.

That show too had quite a lot of provocative talk and potty humor and what not on there that had some things on there that might actually get a person to be arrested, deported, expelled, etc. in real life, hence the disclaimer at the beginning of the show before their opening credits.

Technically not a TV show, but when I was little, my mom forbade me to watch The Three Stooges. [Why you...]

Same here. The Three Stooges would be on in the afternoons. My dad came home from work once, saw me watching and turned off the TV.

He never told me why, specifically. Maybe he thought I'd go around poking people in the eyes or hitting them over the head with hammers!

"Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk"

Watsamattawitchoo?...

I used to watch that after school too. Then I'd go outside and pretend I was Curley. Parents. They don't know what's cool.

My parents actually have an autographed portrait of the Three Stooges, that was made out to my grandmother (for the record, Curly couldn't spell 'sincerely'). My dad put it with the family portraits, and for years I was told they were "Uncle Larry," "Uncle Moe," and "Uncle Curly."
