* {{Bowdlerise}}: Perhaps one of the strangest examples of this trope happened when The Hub reran the show. The network used to run the episode "The Day The Music Died" uncut, until a father of a girl who was a fan of the show misheard part of the line "Well gee, Gobo, we're sorry!" as a racial slur. The Hub responded by shortening it to "Well gee, we're sorry" on future airings up until the rerun rights went back to HBO, who has since aired it uncut.

* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: The main non-human species of Fraggle Rock all speak English (or whatever language the given version of the show is written in). Not only that, but they will sometimes make reference to certain animals, technological devices, etc. that they have little plausible reason to be familiar with, but which the audience would readily understand. This seems to be especially frequent in song lyrics. Then there's the lighting; See HollywoodDarkness, below.
