This is a thread for groundbreaking moments in television history. It can be just about anything, so long as it was something never or done before.

NYPD Blue- First television show on network television to say dickhead.

South Park- First TV-MA cartoon on television in America.

Roots- First show who's cast was mainly African-american and first to show the true treatment of blacks in early America.

The Brady Bunch- First show to feature a husband and wife in the same bed. Even Lucy and Ricky slept in seperate beds.

All in the Family- First American television show to discuss controversial issues such as rape, homosexuality, racism, etc.

Also the first to show Hitler [bleep]ing a donkey.

Boy: "Daddy, who's that bad man, and what's he doing to my donkey?"

Man: "Well, Son, that's not just any bad man, that's Hitler; and he's [bleep]ing your donkey."

This was an important scene, considering the rise of neo-nazism around the globe.  After all, would you want to base your life on the teachings of some weird donkey [bleep]er?

David A, as much as I love you and your taste in anime please either swear like Britz or don't.

Simpsons-A break in the traditional Happy united perfect American family.

Monty Pythons Flying Circus-A breakthrough in modern comedy. Being silly sucked no more.

Nurdbot, clearly you didn't see the episode that I was quoting.  If you did, you would understand why I typed it the way that I did.

That's okay, Nurdy.  I guess you have to see it to get the whole effect.    big grin

Kevin McDonald: "This next sketch is called 'Hitler Blanks a Donkey'."

Dave Foley: "Now, you see what I mean?  They won't even let us say the name of the sketch."

Monty Python was slightly beaten to it by Spike Milligan's Q5 (I think that was the name) and to be very perdantic, almost all of the MP team were heavily influenced by Spike's earlier work, The Goon Show which he did with Harry Seecombe and Peter Sellers - though that was a radio program. Sorry I'll shut up now.  tongue

In the US perhaps, I'm sure I've heard that and worse in an animated show over here before South Park was aired.

ah, but the simpsons was the first american show to break american idiology whereas married with children simply breaks the family ideology.
the simpsons shows corruption in all parts of life whereas any other show before or probably after shows corruption everywhere but america

It is titled "It Hits The Fan". I once heard Tom Green say "fucking elk" on MTV without it being bleeped out.

I was watching the new cartoon series, "Kid Notorious", at a friend's house last night. Anyway, my friend's not so good at hearing and his tv's pretty quiet, so he usually has captioning on. Anyway, about five or ten minutes into the show Robert Evans says fuck and though it was bleeped out on the audio it displayed it on the subtitles.
The only other show I've ever seen do this is Kid's in the Hall.
