The Simpsons: Homer's Phobia

Not the show itself, but this particular episode which featured guest star John Waters. With the bulk of the humour being at Homer's expense, the episode was a rare instance at the time of LGBT characters NOT being the butt of jokes. It also satirized homophobia in a way that only The Simpsons could.

Alot of the attitudes that Homer shows eccos some of the real life attitudes of the time. However, the new char and the other Simpsons show an attitude that was somewhat rare on TV shows then.
