While the early show contained some jokes that were definitely not for kids at the time, I think its interesting how programming targeted at children has evolved over time. I think the biggest change over the decades has been guns. Old Looney Tunes never shied away from them, and any character could have them. Even old family centric live action programming had guns everywhere, see The Andy Griffith show. At the time the US was a little more rural, guns were far more commonplace in hardware stores and the like, and real violence seemed a little further away as the news wasn’t running 24/7 and grabbing any violent stories they can to draw eyes

Amazing to see how nobody batted an eye at nudity or profanity, but when a gun went off, everyone in the theater jumped, as if they’d never heard it before. Same film, American audience and it was the exact opposite…nobody flinched when the gun went off, but a few boobs, and it might as well be R rated.
