Atomic Tales was a Patriot Broadcasting Company series broadcast in the 1950's which posed incredible What If? scenarios and exploring their terrifying consequences. Some of the "original" archives have now been unearthed, so that the shows can be broadcast, in full, with introductions and advert breaks, to a more cynical 21st century audience. The show is, of course, a Pastiche of 1950's Values Dissonance, and a reminder of why Americans are funny.
Common tropes include:
- Eagleland: Type 2; the entire point appears to be to point and laugh at those stupid Eisenhower-era Americans.
- Fun with Acronyms: The following program has been approved by GAY, the Guardians of American Youth.
