The Mr. Belvedere AIDS Episode

From Wikipedia:

In one of many very special episodes, one of Wesley’s classmates contracts HIV via Factor VIII, like Ryan White. When all of Wesley’s classmates shun him for still associating with his friend (due to the belief at the time of stereotypes of AIDS being mainly associated with drug addicts and gay men), Belvedere is there for him and the child, and he helps the other students befriend the boy.

The sentiment is there, but the joke in this clip is very odd with a laugh track, especially at a time when AIDS was new. Then again, if you’re a little kid how else would you deal with the disease?
