Not so much “not allowed on TV today” as “largely inaccurate today,” but I just watched Rob Petrie ask Laura to remember her wedding vow to love, honor, and obey.

In Living Color, which aired on FoX-TV in its early days, had plenty of non-PC content. 

The late former Mayor-for-Life of the District of Columbia, Marion Shepilov Barry, Jr. was featured in this video.  Likely non-PC now.

And Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam was torched (along with Star Trek) here.

In Season one of Family Ties, Alex P. Keaton (who was only 17 in character on the program) slept with a woman older than 18 years of age.  With the whole sex crimes thing nowadays (as even on Law & Order SVU they have older teens being charged with sex crimes for sleeping with younger teens being forced to register as offenders) that would not be allowed by any network.

Two days ago a rerun of Archie Bunker's Place was on. It featured the episode of when Archie had a gay waiter in the first season.  There was a line in it that  had "He's going to turn our bar and grill into a fairyland" said by Caroll O' Connor' character the famous Archie Bunker.

Now not only would that be allowed, but totally irrelivant as even most on the political right and born again types look at the lifestyle in a more serious (not funny) manner.  I laughed at it when first aired decades ago, but when I heard it this past week I did not think its so funny anymore.

At the time it was probably considered progressive because they acknowledged that the character was gay.

We were watching a Webster rerun the other day that included the following exchange:

“I thought he was Oriental!”
“No, he was just squinting.”

Charlie Chan would likely have to be re-tooled given it was a White man in the role and affirmed stereotypes of the day.

Hop Sing from Bonanza would also have to be re-imagined as his character was rather stereotypical.

Kato from the Green Hornet started out mostly as the Karate expert and chauffeur, until Bruce Lee requested his character be given more to do.

Previously on All In The Family there was an episode that acknowledged homosexuality.  The one where Archie thought that Meathead's friend Roger was gay, due to his flamboyant demeanor, but it turned out Archie's old time buddy was the one who was really gay while Roger was straight.

I think Lear wanted to show that looks can be deceiving and used that to prove that not all effeminine men are homosexuals and that all straight looking guys could really not be as straight as they look.

It reminds me of another cartoon with a similar pattern but this time with a car.

Here's one parody that Disney Did Recently on their show. Mickey Mouse did a parody of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that used to air a decade ago on Disney's ABC Primetime lineup.






I don't think ABC or Disney would allow the Mickey Mouse cartoon episode to happen if Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was still under contract.

Considering the copyright date, it's probably more accurate to say that it's anti-urban renewal as opposed to anti-gentrification.

Thread bump:

Compilation of actual old TV commercials, mostly from the 1960s but some are from the late 70s as well, that would likely not be aired today.

They REALLY didn't like it when he would kiss black women, supposedly.

Yes using a Red hat these days would somehow end up being controversial if Jason Mraz were to air his first music video today on TV. Note this song and video was on VH1 back in 2003-2004.


But back then a red hat didn't have the political controversies that it has in the past 3 years tough for obvious reasons.

IMHO, you're seriously overreaching in your above-post.  Many baseball teams use red hats (Phillies & Red Sox being two of them).  I have never heard of someone wearing a red sports team's hat being yelled at and/or assaulted for wearing such... unless they were in a rival team's territory and even such are rare, isolated & usually involve excessive alcohol consumption.

That old The Little House cartoon, complete with the clown faces, is about Anti-Urban-Renewal.

But what about all those other links to videos with no thumbnail on them. What is the title?

The video with no thumbnail, was "Susie the little blue coupe"(1952) made around the same era featuring the little house.
