Compare TomHanksSyndrome. Related to BadassDecay, LighterAndSofter, ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic and BleachedUnderpants (when a work distances itself from its pornographic beginnings). SoMyKidsCanWatch happens when a performer does family-friendly fare with every intention of going back to business as usual afterwards.

** That said, his Fred Sanford persona wasn't quite that clean either (though certainly a lot cleaner than his stand-up). The character would sometimes indulge in NWordPrivileges and make politically incorrect jokes; the former especially would be [[ValuesDissonance unthinkable for a sitcom today]], unless it was [[SoundEffectBleep bleeped out]], used for a VerySpecialEpisode, or if the show ran on a premium and/or cable channel geared towards older viewers.

* Wrestling/DwayneJohnson was once known exclusively as The Rock: a wrestler who hit you as hard in the ring as he did verbally outside of it, and if you didn't like it, you could keep your dislike to your self. When he first started acting he took roles like [[Film/TheScorpionKing a mercenary-turned-Scorpion King]], a professional bounty hunter (''Film/TheRundown'') and a grizzled Gunnery Sergeant Space Marine (''Film/{{Doom}}''). Then he showed up in ''Film/RaceToWitchMountain'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Planet 51}}'' and ''Film/TheToothFairy''. And even his wrestling career was a step down from his college football career, when he would spark bench clearing brawls by taking a swing at an opposing team's ''mascot.'' He's now doing a complete 180 in his film career as ''Film/{{Faster}}'' was DarkerAndEdgier than any of his other movie roles, and he's also starred in ''Film/FastFive''. When he came back to WWE in 2011 he still had to tone himself down a lot, since ''Wrestling/MondayNightRaw'' is TV-PG now. To his credit he at least tried to push the envelope a bit, as much as WWE would let him get away with anyway.

Dwayne would continue to [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzag this trope]], however, by co-starring in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', a 2017 Disney musical film--and millions of viewers would hear him ''sing a musical number'' for the first time.

The reasons for that are several. Either the entertainer actually changes their worldview after being exposed to a lifestyle until then unthinkable, they want to try something new (like acting!), the MoralGuardians excessively bashed the songs their kids insisted on listening to, or perhaps [[MoneyDearBoy their pockets were lighter than they thought]]. But, the most common reason is [[SoMyKidsCanWatch having children]] - the entertainer doesn't want their kids to think of them as nothing more than the guy who shouted obscenities on TV, or they now feels how other parents felt about having their kids exposed to such obscenities.

** It's been rumored that at one time WWE considered making ''[=SmackDown=]'' live but UPN was terrified of giving Cena a live mic; this is the same man that later, live on Raw, tagged a limo with graffiti reading [[MemeticMutation "JBL is poopy".]]
