Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm G:

My parents didn't want me reading the "Old Testament" as a child. Too much sex and violence (and too many embarrassing questions for them to answer), I guess.

Stuff I can remember I wasn't allowed to watch -

-In Living Color
-The Mother Love Show
-one episode of The Super Friends where they get possessed by some evil red powder or something, and Frankstein was on an airplane as a passenger

Weird thing was, NO movies were banned. So, stuff on TV got kept away, but I probably could've gotten away with watching all the hardcore porn I wanted when i was like, 5
Avatar 6:08pm steve:

true. Danne D did you see Ken and Andy at the comedy festival? figure if anyone did it was probably you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Caryn:

My parents didn't set tv barriers for me. Or movie ones. And I don't think that seeing the first Evil Dead movie at age 6 has had any lasting ill effects... Except a slight fear of being stabbed in the ankle with a pencil.

You both are "courtesy invited" to a lot of parties, I presume. They're just disappointed when you actually RSVP.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm G:

Why they let us watch Laugh In at age 10 is beyond me. All us fourth grades talked about the next morning at school was who got which dirty jokes.
Avatar 6:14pm northguineahills:

The pressure is so low in the middle of a tornado, that the the circulates up. That's how the circulation keeps the clockwise circulation of the air. (there's more to it, there is a chance in an F5 that was big enough, it would be possible to survive. but it's not quiet like a hurricane cyclone eye.)
Avatar 6:14pm Danne D:

I won $25 on a Seven Second Delay Episode where Bob Crane figured.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

The two most notable not allowed to watches were: Beavis & Butthead around 10, and when South Park first began at 12. But I was growing up by then, and besides not being allowed to see American Pie in the theater at 14, there weren't any boundaries set after that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Caryn:

There are a couple of Disney cartoons my parents decided after a couple of viewings that it might be best I don't rewatch. Mainly because I cried so much I hyperventilated and had to be carried to the balcony to breathe. But I totally agreed with them on not watching, so it wasn't exactly a ban.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm G:

It's the opening pf Isaac Hayes "Shaft" 45, 1971, Matt did the same
Avatar 6:16pm glenn:

i agree with andy. there's no way that somebody said fuck on laugh in.

Duke of Hazzard. Course, we sneaked and watched it anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm G:

They did some near misses (plays on words) that they talked Standards and Practices into letting by
Avatar 6:17pm glenn:

or at least, that it was broadcast.
Avatar 6:18pm northguineahills:

I'm in my later 30s, and although my parents were borderline fundies, they were against censorship, so, I was allowed to watch anything as long as it was before my bed time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Of course, w/ Laugh In you could have just taken any sentence you didn't understand, and make up a dirty reference (hoping they also don't know what it means!)

@glenn: I don't think anyone said "fuck" on US TV until Jefferson Airplane performed "We Can Be Together" live in '69 (and that was "motherfuckers"). But I haven't found a clear "first use of fuck on American TV" ref.
Avatar 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...they make a point that on Laugh-In they zipped 'em in & quick-cut as fast as possible to sneak 'em thru...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Lizardner Dave:

It wasn't TV but "Jaws" came out when I was about 8 and I wasn't allowed to go see it because my parents thought it would give me nightmares.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm cklequ:

My parents banned tons of stuff, but for some reason the He-Man cartoon is the only one i remember. Even though i had no interest.

And for some reason Sesame Street and the Muppets were never on in the house. I still hold a grudge about that.

@Andy: "THE Bitcoins", get yer grandfatherly ways right!

It seems the responsible Jews didn't let their kids watch TV as kids, but then they grew up to "control the media." WTF is up with that??? It's like "The Jazz Singer" or something.

"At one point during the joke wall, Dan tells Pamela the start of a joke and then says 'And watch your language.' The reason for this is found in the Laugh-In Past Christmas Present special, where an outtake is shown of the first take of this joke, where Pamela says a naughty word and is bleeped."

I had a baby sitter show my brothers RoboCop when they were 5. I came home to watch it again. I was 10, and had already seen it, but my parents fired the baby sitter for showing it to my 5 year-old bros.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Will check that out, looks interesting.

And I *know* the first British use of "fuck" on TV (#1 in '65, by a statement-making intellectual on a night talk show). And Johnny Rotten + Sex Pistols for #s 3, 4 and 5 in '77!

i remember watching a leafs game on hockey night in canada in maybe 1977. bruce hood (the ref) sent darryl sittler to the penalty box for some minor offense, and darryl lost it and screamed at him " fuck you, hood, you fucking faggot cocksucker". h.n.i.c. had decided to mike the penalty boxes and players benches for some unknown reason, and everybody heard it. the best thing was, i went to high school with hood's kids and when one of his sons walked into the school caf on monday morning EVERYBODY yelled "fuck you, hood, you fucking faggot cocksucker". ahh, memories.

John Cleese is believed to be the first person to say "shit" on British tv. Pre-Python, though. Only took about 30 years for US tv to allow the word in a non-documentary...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Now, speaking of scary movies, that might have been withheld by my parents if I asked for them (but didn't), listening to The Gremlins' Christmas "chimney monologue" on Julie's show made me realize why some kids had that VHS and my family didn't! (Good decision, that would've freaked me the freak out when I was younger!)
  6:35pm dc pat:

I could watch anything but my kids can only watch 3 stooges, adventure time, Simpsons, Monty Python, etc....
  Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Ralphine:

I remember being scared of the WANTED blurbs at the end of The FBI where they sometimes said that the criminals were armed and extremely dangerous, because my dad would always tell me that he heard they were headed our way.

Incidentally, the Simpsons episode where Homer chased Bart with an axe was Treehouse of Horror VIII, at the end of the "Fly Vs Fly" segment. My parents let me watch so much Simpsons that I didn't even have to look that up.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: And...speaking of crying to hyperventilation during Disney, when I was 4 I screamed and cried past the end of the "It's A Small World" ride at Disney World. And I *remember* doing that too, but can't remember just *what* set me off. I was sensitive, and could have been overwhelmed but still have no clue. Perhaps I was physically disturbed from infrasound from the speakers, or something.
Avatar 6:39pm Danne D:

Python is cool.
Watching Python with one Python fan is fine.
Watching Python or even discussing Python with more than one Python fan is completely un-fucking-tolerable!

One of my time machine wishes is to go back in time and witness the pitch meeting for the Hogan's Heroes TV Show.
Avatar 6:48pm glenn:

stalag 17 was not a comedy. there's some argument that neither was hogan's heroes.
  6:48pm Duvid:

My father actually had been a P.o.W. in Germany, and had mixed feelings about "Hogan's Heroes"---he lost all his family to the Nazis and couldn't stand their portrayal there, but did allow that the calibre of men guarding and running the camp where he was was accurately portrayed---old men, fat men, cripples (and not shown on the show) teenagers. He got for me an autographed picture of John Banner, who played Schultz, for me from a business acquaintance who was Banner's cousin.
  Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ralphine:

How can Andy by right? Hogan's Heroes were in Stalag 13, not Stalag 17.

The guy who lived up the street from me growing up actually was the understudy to Sgt Schultz on Hogan's Heroes (at least that was the story)

@Duvid: I heard that Hogan's Heroes had all the principal German guard characters played by Jews, as a subtle joke.

The show seemed to take pains to distinguish between the "bumbling germans" - Schultz and Klink vs. the truly evil Nazis like the gestapo dude.
