The NAACP was so outraged by what it considered extremely negative stereotypical portrayal of black people in "The Amos 'n Andy Show," that it fought with CBS almost immediately upon the show's TV premiere in June 1951 to get the show off the air. They finally succeeded in 1966, when the show was removed from syndication. No episode of "Amos 'n Andy" has been aired on television since that time. The only viewing of any portion of the show since its removal from the airwaves were the clips from various episodes included in the documentary Amos 'n' Andy: Anatomy of a Controversy (1983).

I have 78 episodes on DVD. The characters are incredibly Funny. I'm a white man & feel like most others. The show is comedy not a documentary. The humor is harmless. I don't think that the honeymooners depict a negative image of white folks. Compare the 2 shows, the constant scheming, the outfits, the lodge, etc... Most average folks in those days were real poor & related to the humor. I don't know about you, It's a shame some people are that defensive That they can't laugh at show anymore & put it in perspective with the times it was created. It should still be available on T.V. Like the other classics.I love it.
