and also if they wouldnt let you watch Simpsons for awhile, i wonder what theyd think aobut Family Guy and South Park!
The Simpsons is a lot more milder than Family Guy or South Park. Even back in the early 90's when there were a lot of controversies about The Simpsons the episodes people complained about back then are mild compared to Family Guy and South Park today. I know a lot of people who don't allow their kids to watch Family Guy or South Park.

I don't know...I'm not sure a lot of the toons that were being produced in the 30s or 40s were only aimed at children...they were shown with movies that probably were not considered kid friendly. Kids probably wouldn't understood some of the Tex Avery stuff, etc. Seems adult to me.

But then Saturday morning came along and gave animation the vibe that it was a children's genre.

I don't remember them ever being strict about my TV watching; but I remember when "ALL IN THE FAMILY" first started some parents in our neighborhood wouldn't let their kids watch it.

I know. And I wasn't talking about 30s and 40s animation either. I was talking about cartoons from later decades.

My parents were super strict on what I could and couldn't see. My mom didn't really want me to see Three's Company though until I was older. I would pretty much watch the shows they watched with them in reruns. I never really watched The Simpsons though cause they never liked it and so I wasn't really told about it. I didn't see it until I was like in high school, but I still don't watch it all that much. I don't like Family Guy or South Park though. Those are worse. I usually went to be pretty earlier when I was young so I didn't always get to see shows that I wanted to, but i've seen a lot more now.

I was not allowed to watch any of the early Norman Lear shows . I was allowed to watch Threes Company but I had to sneak to watch SOAP because of the controversy around it. I also had to sneak to watch those early years of SNL.

Outside of the early years Saturday Night Live Big Time Wrestling I was pretty much allowed to watch what I wanted as long as it weren't too raunchy which was ironic since I was allowed to watch Monty Pythons Flying Circus and Benny Hill.

Nope, never...and I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. I don't think kids should be sheltered too much from the reality of life. Things are what they are, and they can't be protected forever. In fact, I think it's dangerous to shelter children too much.

That being said, I don't think I'd go too far and ever let a young child watch anything that's extremely sexual or violent. But God...I have a friend who wasn't allowed to watch the Rugrats as a kid. THE RUGRATS! I try to ask her so I can understand why in the hell not, but she doesn't have a very clear answer. Things like that I'll never understand.

Yeah, now I too really want to know why she wasn't allowed to watch "Rugrats". I mean, what was wrong with her parents?

Ha ha! Yeah, Angelica can be too much. But I still don't think, that she, or anything else about the show, is bad enough to make parents forbid their children to watch it. Except for maybe that it was a bit gross that Phil and Lil used to eat bugs.

After my brothers at ages 5 and 6 were trying to piledrive each other, we couldn't watch wrestling anymore.
