* TheDarkAgeOfAnimation was in full swing. Not everything was terrible, but cartoons were generally [[LimitedAnimation cheaply produced]], and became more sitcom-like. The AnimationAgeGhetto started due to cartoons being marketed exclusively toward children.

* In Latin music, the beginning of the decade was dominated by Bolero (a kind of ballad style born in Cuba and refined in Mexico and the Caribbean) and the Tropical Orchestra (think BigBand, only with less jazz and more latin sounding rhythms like calypso and mambo thrown to the repertory), which had been strong in the former decade. Many of those orchestras and their singers' musical style slowly evolved into what would eventually be baptized as Salsa near the end of the decade.
** There were some pioneers who tried to adapt rock music into Spanish, after having being introduced to it via foreign movies. At the beginning all those bands did were covers of the original anglo records, but eventually some artists began to do original songs, and eventually new genres (like the Nueva Ola from Spain, a predecessor of the pop-rock on furter years). The rock scene will remain pretty regional for the next two decades.
** For a while, Andean [[note]]meaning typical folk-ish Peruvian [[/note]] music was really popular in South America. Panflute-based instrumentals were very liked. Many of these artist paved the way into several folk and folk-fusion genres, specially in Chile and Argentina.

* The political climate of the era was ''very'' confusing, to say the least. A lot of the same people who opposed UsefulNotes/BarryGoldwater (a Republican) in 1964 for his backwards racial policies latter on supported UsefulNotes/RichardNixon (also a Republican) in 1968 for his promises to end the increasingly unpopular UsefulNotes/VietnamWar. Of course, people back then had no idea that Nixon would later on turn out to be the infamous crook whose reputation continues to plague him to this day.
