The show breaks social barriers, but it also features some strong negative ethnic stereotypes. George is stubborn, mean-spirited, and bigoted. There are clear class distinctions between the Jeffersons and their friends and family from the "old neighborhood" in Queens. Most of the cast is African-American; Tom and Harry are Caucasian. Harry is British.
George likes to yell at people (especially Louise), but he isn't violent.
Occasional adult hugging and kissing.
Language includes words like "damn" and racial epithets like "honky" (generally played for laughs).
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Occasional drinking and pipe and cigar smoking. References to getting drunk. George and his friends like going to local bars.
