As a child of the 80s, I often reminisce about all the awesome sitcoms we were lucky enough to have. I remember clutching my ALF doll while marveling at how lucky that sh*tty family was that this hilarious alien happened to live in their house, and I still blame most of my problems on not growing up with an actual train running through my house a la the one on Silver Spoons.
Things today have really changed.
But I have to admit… I don’t quite remember that AIDS storyline on Mr. Belvedere. Maybe this joke will refresh your memory?
Yes, this is exactly how this aired on the Mr. Belvedere episode called “Wesley’s Friend.” Here is the episode description according to Wikipedia:
When one of Wesley’s friends is revealed to have AIDS, he is taken out of school due to the ignorance and uncertainty that many of the other children’s parents share. This leads Wesley to shun his friend in fear of getting the disease himself.
Well, that explains that. Goodnight.
