>this was considered the worst, most evil influence a child could have in the 90s
I remember it being Pokemon, and before Pokemon it was DnD and Rock and Roll
>>167994128My parents hated Bart and tried to keep me away from The Simpsons as long as possible, but I still fell in love with the show. Funny thing is, Bart is downright wholesome compared to how I turned out.
>>167994128Anyone else think it was really fucking gay that Bart would spread his asscheeks all the time?
The issue was that it was a cartoon saying curse words and doing bad things on network television. At the time, it was kind of unheard of.It was also released as a part of the beginning of the dysfunctional family sitcom trend, with shows like Married with Children and Roseanne. As a result, you had a lot of family values conservatives go after the show. Even then-President Bush spoke out against the Simpsons, saying they needed more families like the Waltons and fewer families like the Simpsons on TV. Simpsons even did a rebuttal in the form of a commercial.I remember as a kid one of my teachers going on a long rant against the Simpsons and not really getting her issues with the show since my family and I loved watching it and I even had a Simpsons lunchbox.
>>167994128Now it's faggot teachers.
>>167994128No, he was 90's Denis the menace
The thing that always confused me was that a lot of the earlier seasons were kind of preachy. So it had this bad boy reputation with a veggie tales soul. My mom didn’t want me to watch it but that npc cunt doesn’t believe in anything anyway.
>>167994128AMERICA NEEDS TO BE A LOT MORE LIKE THE WALTONS AND LESS LIKE THE SIMPSONS
>>167994299But you literally might skateboard for fun and play with a slingshot
>>167994128The simpsons did in some ways help americas decline, but the idea that mischeivious boys didn't exist before the simpsons is retarded. where did the phrase BOYS WILL BE BOYS come from?
>>167994128Bart Simpson raped and killed a girl in 1990
>>167996791Yeah in the sense that television was no longer a disciplinary measure meant to communicate conservative norms but was in the name of humor and satire creating an American self image of both personal idiocy but a distrust and feeling of abuse from all factors of society
>>167994128now those same boomers say the worse thing in the world is not being up to date with globohomo news media mindset.they never had any clue, they outsourced their every opinion, always be NPCing.
>>167994202Nobody ever said pokemon was a bad influence dumb zoomer
>>167997019Hahaha Fox News said it was satanic because it was teaching children evolution
When they started having Christmas markets in my town, there was consternation in the local council that one stall was selling Bart Simpson dolls and the market could be too low class or tacky
Zoomers quite literally do not know
>>167994128My parents were fairly liberal, not religious types at all, but still fell for the "Simpsons are a bad influence" meme, so I didn't manage to watch the show until much later in adolescence.
>>167996945Sneed's Fuckeed and Suckeed? What is it, an Asian brothel?
>>167994128i miss Phil Hartman
>>167994128I think people underestiminate just how deeply prudish and conservative mainstream America was in the late 80s and early 90s.
>>167994128George bush sr was seething so they made an episode about him. >I wish tv had more families like the Walton’s and less like the Simpsons. CHuck them.
>>167994394 Based Xennial memories. Teachers really hated the “I’m an underachiever and proud of it” shifts on the very first merchandise, not to mention all the bootleg stuff out there with far worse shit on it.
>>167997019The entire South American mothers don’t agree with your statement
>>167996849You bet your sweet bippy! Fact is people bitching and crying about the generation following them is timeless.>what’s the matter with kids today?
>>167994128Do you know how many kids died eating shorts? Millions . You may have forgotten but I havent, I survived that epidemic thank god.
>>167994128Considering that the entire that grew up watching him proceeded to disfigure their genitals in some bizarre woke ritual... I'd say that their criticisms might be warranted.Don't worry, I didn't listen to the critics at the time either.
>>168001384The entire generation? Where did all the dicks go? Your mouth?
>>167996712Who the FUCK were the Waltons and why did chief spook like them?
The Bush episode is kino, regardless of your political views. It doesn't whine about right-wingers, it pokes mild fun at one specific president, mostly just for him being super dry and dull. And it has some funny moments like Gorbachev showing up, and Homer saying "Brought some of your COMMIE friends to play dirty, huh Bush?"
