Default Would mini skirt be acceptable for children's TV show?

When I was a boy in the 70s one of my favorite shows was "New Zoo Revue". Co-host Emmy-Jo wore mini-skits and go go boots. My question is would it be acceptable today for a woman to wear mini skirts on childrens TV?. Or would there be an uproar. Would parents call her a "****" If so, this is proof that not only have we moved backwards but that ISLAM is having a huge influence on American culture and fashion. Very sad.

Nothing wrong with it at all. Had to go back and take a look at it though. Nothing wrong with her or what she is wearing.

Ask Katy Perry what is acceptable attire for a children's show.

I saw her Sesame Street bit on Youtube and I could not for the life of me figure out what the controversy is.

If you have a nice body, a mini skirt is always acceptable.

Islam has nothing to do with this! Good night, its a CHILDRENS show why ruin it with adult sexual undertones? A mini skirt/go-go boots has but one purpose and its not to help children! This is but another symptom of our sick society. If women want to dress in a manner like this take it to a adult program. This is a no-brainer.........

I don't think I have every seen an unattractive woman in any kids' shows (unless her character calls for her to be a caricature, the big women are either mean or especially jolly). I watch the Disney channel quite a bit with my three year old daughter and while none of them wear anything racy, they do show a tiny bit of cleavage or leg every so often - but that's the way people dress in public, so it would be weird to cover all the women in ankle length skirts and dress them like the Amish or something. A mini skirt and go-go boots would probably be over the top and I'm sure Disney would have the woman wear tights as well.

Disney goes with the flow. In TV and at their parks.

In the late 60's (when it was the height of fashion) Disneyland had employees (excuse me, Cast Members) in go-go boots and mini skirts as their costumes. Come to think of it the Plaids (tour guides) wore mini skirts and carried whips.

Oh my gosh, New Zoo Review!! Life was so much simpler then-- none of this makeup for 8 year olds and Botox on tweens etc. But no in general I think there should be modest dress on children's shows-- classy, professional.
