* One of the simulations used in ''SaintsRow IV'' is Steelport set in this time. Bright, sunshiny, whimsical track. Driving is done safely, at the speed limit. And no swearing or violence. The game's base genre is crime WideOpenSandbox. No points for guessing what the Boss does when he/she is snapped out of it.

Anyone who isn't any of these characters are either [[GreaserDelinquents greasers]], {{Beatnik}}s, gas station attendants, or [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]] (who, in this era, wouldn't be caught dead in a rhinestone jumpsuit). With the [[RedScare possible]] exception of the gas station attendants, everyone on that list is a direct threat to the upright morals and values of the era and will not be afforded a spot in the basement bomb shelter when the [[DirtyCommunists Reds]] drop [[UsefulNotes/NuclearWeapons The Big One]]. Meanwhile, Martin Luther King and the burgeoning CivilRightsMovement stride across America, slowed down only by the occasional CorruptHick. [[TheNewRockAndRoll The birth of rock 'n' roll]] took place in this era, to the horror of MoralGuardians, which also showed a resurgence in popularity.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' is mainly a deconstruction of Fifties alien invasion movies, but it also has large dollops of nostalgia (the director was born in 1957, the year the movie was set) and delves into some of the issues of the day, particularly UsefulNotes/ColdWar paranoia, as personified by Kent Mansley.

* "Swell" - Say this a lot, especially if you're a teenage girl and you're talking about something you like (usually a boy). Be sure to say it in an extra cutesy and/or sweet way. The more affected it sounds, the better. ("Oh, that's just swell!")
** The word actually dates to TheRoaringTwenties, but it continued to be used in popular media until about the mid-Sixties, making it an early example of TotallyRadical.

* "Gee whiz" - Be sure to say this every two seconds if you're a boy under twelve. It can be used in any situation since it doesn't really mean anything.
** "Golly" can essentially serve the same purpose.
** Actually "gee whiz" is a GoshDangItToHeck version of Jesus and Golly for "god".
