He continued, “I’m delighted to share that ‘Please, Kid, Please’ is now used on Hulu. Following the re-airing of ‘Juneteenth’ and ‘Hope,’ I asked Walt Disney Tv to review making the episodeavailable

Barris also consisted of, “I can not await everybody to finally see the episode on their own and, as held true almost 3 years ago, we hope it motivates some much-needed conversation– not only about what we were coming to grips with then or how it led to where we are now, however conversations about where we desire our country to go moving on and, most notably, how we get there together.”

He closed with, “Thank you to ABC Entertainment for allowing this moment to occur. And thank you to the entire black-ish family for never ever shying away from tough discussions, making telling stories like this possible.”

The episode was set to trigger some much-needed social commentary. Being available in at a $3 million budget, it consisted of animations, a voice over from Spike Lee, and news video footage of Donald Trump, the Charlottesville attacks and the NFL kneeling demonstrations.

According to Range, the episode was eventually pulled the week prior to it was set to run and was, rather, changed with a rerun. One of the reported disparities stayed the conversation of the NFL’s very marketed #TakeTheKnee presentations.
