Analysis: Family-Unfriendly Aesop
  • A benefit — and problem — of the Family Unfriendly Aesop is that it's so unexpected. It can make for a strong Twist Ending, 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 Family-Unfriendly Aesop is not necessarily cynical. Shows on the idealistic end of the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism can have them too, if they have morals like "take candy from strangers, because people are nice."
