Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this classic 1960s multi-Emmy Award-winning series features lots of comedy and musical acts that are both entertaining and family friendly. As was typical of the time, pipe, cigar, and cigarette smoking is occasionally visible. Parties often feature people with cocktails, and jokes sometimes make references to drunkenness. Because the themes revolve around work and marriage, it probably won't appeal to younger kids (although it's mild enough if it does).
Some extremely mild flirtations and kissing between married folk.
Bickering among co-workers is frequent, but any physical violence is of the comedic kind.
The series reflects the traditional white, middle class values of the time, but it also has references to the social changes taking place as a result of the Kennedy era. It also has strong positive themes of relationships and family.
