** "The Day the Violence Died" is a reference to TheDayTheMusicDied", the official nickname for February 2, 1959, when rock 'n' roll stars Music/BuddyHolly, Music/RitchieValens and Music/TheBigBopper all died in a plane crash. The nickname was thought up by Music/DonMcLean in his song [[Music/AmericanPie "American Pie"]].

-->'''Roger Myers, Jr.:''' TV is built on plagiarism! If it wasn't for ''[[Series/TheHoneymooners The Honeymooners]]'', we would have never had ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''! If someone hadn't made ''[[Series/ThePhilSilversShow Sergeant Bilko]]'', there'd be no ''WesternAnimation/TopCat''! WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound, [[BreakingTheFourthWall Chief Wiggum]], WesternAnimation/YogiBear? Hah! Andy Griffith, Creator/EdwardGRobinson, Art Carney.

Caricatures of Pacific Islanders, the Irish, the Scottish, the French, the British, Russians, Australians, Americans, and Italians[[note]]most of the time[[/note]] aren't cause for alarm by the censors unless MediaWatchdog groups specifically say it's offensive).
