It's the ones with 'current' cultural depictions that worry me....
you mean Li'l Black Sambo?
they had the best onion rings
wasn't it a spin off from Shoney's Big Boy (or vice-versa)
All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog.”

Don't let the kids watch 'Parks and Recreation' then. The murals in Pawnee represented factual events, but in a rather harsh manner.

There was one in or around Medford. We used to go to Cali every Spring and always planned a stop there.
We had one as a kid. Cartoon depictions around the top of the walls. Honestly I never knew the story until much later in life. To me it was just the pancake place.
As a kid I would never miss the Lone Ranger & Tonto, Cisco Kid & Pancho. I guess the TV made me think all Native Americans looked like Tonto & all men from Mexico looked like Pancho.
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit!

Just noticed this "warning" for the first time.
Seriously? People need a trigger warning before seeing people smoking cigarettes?

coffee, and sarcasm.
Both of those would qualify for these disclaimers, never mind that they were on the side of good and with minimal violence. In addition, Duncan Renaldo, who played Cisco, was Romanian.
Leo Carrillo, who played Pancho, was a philanthropist. A state beach in California is named for him.
My mom clued me into "Lil Black Sambo". She pointed out that a little (weak) kid, Sambo, outsmarted the strongest animals in it's world. The tiger's took LBS clothes through brute force, but Sambo outsmarted them and in the end they were just Tiger Butter and Sambo had his clothes back. She pointed out that we all should celebrate such things. Besides that, Sambo was not an American, but an asian-indian. Why would any black american ever be offended by this?

I started a "program" with my (then) HS senior daughter last year where we had "Politically Incorrect Movie Night." On tap were Caddyshack, History of the World Part One, Airplane, etc. But to lead us off? Blazing Saddles. She sat through it with a mixture of laughter, nervousness, and gasping. After it was over she admitted that she didn't know whether to laugh or not when certain scenes were played. I asked her if she got the point of the movie, that they'd mocked whites worse than anyone else (whole town of Johnsons, all the morons were white, etc)? Oh, you know, I really didn't notice that!
