That actually makes me imagine that a lot of those "Mars Attacks" stories would have, around about the mid-21st century, gone through the same transition that old school "cowboys and indians" stories have here in the real world; i.e "Oh, yeah, those stories are SHOCKINGLY racist. They're an important part of the cultural canon but you'd never, ever try and make one today."
