I love how Ren and Stimpy was fine for my generation to watch at like 8 years old but now parents would totally not allow it, I think.
When I was was 8, they used to show old Warner Brothers cartoons with characters blowing up, Popeye eating spinach and viciously pulverizing anyone in his way, or Three Stooges shorts with Moe beating up Larry and Curly. But that all got denounced as too violent around the 60s and 70s.
Hmm...I watched plenty of Looney Tunes growing up in the 90s...and Popeye too.
In the 60s, JFK, RFK, and MLK all died violently, so that was part of the opposition's case I think. You couldn't show a guy getting shot at the same time as the gun fired, it had to be separate angles. Shows like Gunsmoke had to change their opening titles sequence.
