Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this classic comedy about two working-class married couples is pretty tame compared to modern incarnations. That said, there's some not-so-subtle sexism that should warrant a little discussion, particularly when it comes to the way Ralph talks to his wife and threatens her with violence, however empty those threats may be. A few episodes involve smoking or drinking, but they're typically played for comedy.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


All violence is played for comedy, but Ralph sometimes pretends to hit or punch his wife in frustration, using his famous catchphrase, "... one of these days ... POW! Right in the kisser! One of these days, Alice, straight to the moon!" There's also some verbal sniping between husband and wife, and between husband and mother in law.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The show focuses more on the tumultuous friendship between two working-class men than on the men's relationships with their wives. But there are plenty of scenes that suggest married life is less than blissful. Ralph's catchphrase -- funny as it was in its era -- is a threat of domestic violence, which is no longer considered appropriate for humor.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasional drinking and smoking, typically played for comic effect. Slang terms like "getting loaded" (drunk).
