Obviously there's {{Truth in Television}} here. ValuesDissonance can sometimes result in this, if the Aesop really ''was'' revolutionary and controversial for its time/place. Also, some Aesops are uncontroversial when spoken as a plain statement, but have an implicit, less-widely-agreed-to message, such as "We're not yet doing enough about this." For example, it's easy to say "Bigotry is bad", but programs designed to help disadvantaged minorities, like affirmative action and hate crime legislation, are [[LoveItOrHateIt polarizing]] political issues with no clear right or wrong answers. Not to mention that even the most moral of people can get [[JadedWashout burnt out on idealism]] and start [[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence resenting the people they're still supposed to help as whiners and nuisances]] - and therefore, might have to learn to be compassionate all over again, or at least have their initial altruism reinforced.

* ''WesternAnimation/DoubleDragons'' tended to stick to really obvious morals in it's frequent [[VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Episodes]], such as "racism is wrong" or "drugs are bad". Worse yet, the show was prone to redundancy; the moral of "drugs are bad" gets told ''twice'' within a few episodes.

** It's still worth noting that, even though superheroines have been common in comics and cartoons for decades, they were still quite rare in superhero movies and TV shows by the time the ''Supergirl'' pilot was aired in October 2015. At that point, both the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and the Series/{{Arrowverse}} had introduced only a couple of token heroines. In fact, before ''Supergirl'' there hadn't been live-action superhero production with a female lead since 2005's ''Film/{{Elektra}}'', and the last actually successful example of this (since ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' and the 1984 ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'' movie were both flops, and ''Elektra'' was hardly a financial success either) had been ''Series/WonderWoman'', made some 40 years earlier. So for people who don't read superhero comics or watch the cartoons, "girls can be superheroes too!" may still have been a case of SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.
