Fruit and veggy ads from the 1920's to 1950's.

Had a different meaning back then.

That was when people were proper, and before our moral values declined with gays demanding special priviledges.

Gay = Happy

Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.

They're the modern stone age family.

From the town of Bedrock,

They're a page right out of history.

Let's ride with the family down the street.

Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet.

When you're with the Flintstones

you'll have a yabba dabba doo time.

A dabba doo time.

You'll have a gay old time.

My parents have several of the ads in the OP.  Except not copies, the real deal.  They're kind of antique collectors.  Have a lot of neat old stuff.

Times were simpler then. I don't really see anything racist pro or con.

For a second there I thought your thread title meant they were comin' out with a gay Jonny Quest. Scared the shit outta me...

Those ads are typical for the time period that they were created in.

Dad used to have some of those in his store in the 70's.

We always keep an eye out and buy some if they are they old ones.

Gay used to mean happy or pleasant. How sodomy ever took on the word escapes me.
