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).

Sexual Content

Some extremely mild flirtations and kissing between married folk.

Violence

Bickering among co-workers is frequent, but any physical violence is of the comedic kind.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

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.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

People are shown with cocktails during parties. As was typical of the time, pipe, cigar, and cigarette smoking is sometimes visible. The show's cast appeared in a popular cigarette commercial.
