* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: This show is best described as ''Series/AllInTheFamily'': The Animated Series. Too bad most people at the time saw cartoons as being frivolous kiddie fare, not helped by most of [[Creator/HannaBarbera the studio's]] other content being exactly this. Creator/CartoonNetwork even aired it in prime time during it's inagural run (this being before the creation of Creator/AdultSwim). It wouldn't be until ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' came along in the late 1980s for people to see the light.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: What got the show canceled in it's initial run. MoralGuardians didn't like that a cartoon was dealing with family unfriendly subjects, even if it was explicitly not for families. It didn't help that the show was originally designed for, and for the most part aired in, the new 7:30 family slot.

* ValuesResonance: Despite dating itself by taking on contemporary issues, much of the edgier content has held up (mostly because several of the issues, for better or worse, never really went away so much as took on new forms). Some of the show's handling of feminism (especially the episode where Irma gets a job at a law firm and the younger, prettier secretary is treated better than the older, plainer Irma), and population control ("Expectant Papa") are still relevant in the 21st century. It helps that the show never stooped to the kind of [[LowestCommonDenominator scatological or racist humor]] that [[AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark many animated shows for adults rely too heavily on]].

* AnimationAgeGhetto: Can you believe that reruns of this used to air on '''Creator/CartoonNetwork''' (''long'' before the advent of the similarly themed Creator/AdultSwim block, to boot)?

* ValuesDissonance: To an extent, Cartoon Network's sibling channel, Boomerang. The content of ''Wait Till Your Father Gets Home'' should easily garner it a TV-PG rating (it would have if Cartoon Network aired it, especially these days, where you have shows like ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' airing proudly with a TV-PG rating), but when Boomerang last screened it, a "TV-Y7" rating was given. Back in the early 1970s, ''Wait Till Your Father Gets Home'', much as ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' was in its early days, was criticized for being a cartoon with adult content, in a time when animation was thought of as exclusively for children.
