The Simpsons was super-controversial among the Parents Television Council set in the early days

It was a precursor to the controversies that would surround Beavis And Butt-Head and South Park later on -- not so much the content itself, but the fact that it was animation and hugely appealing to kids caused no end of hand-wringing and kvetching among the conservative/Christian cultural warrior squares. Even then-Pres. George Herbert Walker Bush weighed in, saying that American families should try to be "more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons," leading to the hilarious episode where a washed-up one-term failure ex-President Bush moves in across the street from the Simpson family.
