* A benefit -- and problem -- of the Family Unfriendly Aesop is that it's so unexpected. It can make for a strong TwistEnding, but it's so surprising that it may dominate the story. Instead of leaving the audience something to think about after the show, they're busy scratching their heads and wondering, "did they really ''say'' that? In public?"
* A FamilyUnfriendlyAesop is not necessarily cynical. Shows on the idealistic end of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism can have them too, if they have morals like "take candy from strangers, because people are nice."
