Indian Head Test Pattern got an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Series, even though the Emmy Awards didn't exist until 1949. It was noted to be the first animated kids' show, although by 1958, it became more adult content, a move that some fans still haven't ultimately forgiven. The adult content version of the show featured crude, kid-unfriendly color bars, of different colors.
