A disclaimer is running ahead of 18 episodes of The Muppet Show, which is streaming on Disney Plus.
Disney Plus has added a content warning to the beginning of 18 episodes of The Muppet Show, which started streaming on the platform on Friday.
"This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures," it reads.
"These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now."
The disclaimer has been added to each of the episodes for different reasons, including one where Johnny Cash sings in front of the Confederate flag.
The Confederacy was the group of southern states that fought to keep slavery during the US Civil War and the flag is seen as a symbol of racism by many.
Disney's disclaimer added: "Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together."
The advisory note comes after several months of revisionism around films and TV programmes which could be considered offensive by the standards of today.
