* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'': The 1973 episode "Never Too Young" has the family planning for a Roaring Twenties party. At one point, Mike and Carol duet on "I Want To Be Loved By You" (originally from the 1928 musical "Good Boy"), the older kids pore through a stack of old phonographs and laughing at some of the absurd titles of some of the songs, and the family rehearsing for a Charleston competition.

[[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfHollywood Silent films]] became an art medium of their own with classic films like ''Film/TheWind'' and ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' setting new heights for screen drama and the great silent comedians like Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/HaroldLloyd and Creator/BusterKeaton gaining enormous popularity, along with fellow film stars Creator/ClaraBow, Creator/RudolphValentino and child actors Creator/BabyPeggy and Creator/JackieCoogan. The fact that they didn't have sound meant that movies still hadn't killed off {{Vaudeville}} or MinstrelShows just yet, but the advent of talkies beginning with ''Film/TheJazzSinger'' finished the job, however, as well as it killed the careers of many silent actors. Radio progressed quickly through the last of its experimental phases and was firmly established as a mass-market medium by the end of the decade (including radios in cars, brought to you by some lowly company called Motorola), also establishing what is now known as "popular music" in the process. Sports became items of true passion with star slugger Babe Ruth, portentous pugilist Jack Dempsey, pigskin powerhouse Red Grange, golfing great Bobby Jones and others became heroes for the common man. Basketball, pool and hockey also gained popularity, and bowling became a popular informal sport decades before becoming a [[BowlingForRatings sitcom staple]].

* Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''
* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''

to:

* Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''
''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}''. As the bulk in the movie takes place in Russia, this aspect is downplayed, since (as noted above) things weren't so great there at the time. Once Anya and friends arrive in Paris however, it's this trope all the way.
* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' is a particularly {{Troperiffic}} example, set in TheBigEasy during [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans Mardi Gras]] for added effect. Naturally most of the soundtrack is jazz-based.



* ''Film/EasyVirtue'''s motif is more GenteelInterbellumSetting but Larita's presence and John's lifestyle evoke the spirit of the Roaring 20s - and how it clashes heavily with a conservative English countryside still mourning World War I. Other characters like Sarah seem like they're on their way to embracing the free-spirited lifestyle.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ZTheBeginningOfEverything'' begins in 1917 but gets to the 20s by the fifth episode of so, showing how Zelda Fitzgerald embraced TheFlapper lifestyle, and she and her husband Creator/FScottFitzgerald got famous for their rowdy partying.
