That 70's Show! - The Original Wuss
I rarely watch this show so I can't recall which episode, or even who said it to who...Anyway, some character accuses another of being a "Wuss". But this is highly unlikely: That word (non-word?) simply DID NOT EXIST back in '76-77! Reason: It's an 1980s term created by fusing two other putdowns, "wimp" & "pussy" or merely "puss". "Wimp" as a word barely existed in 76-77 (& it was usually spelled with an 'h' back then having derived from "whimper", of course.) If "wimp" was rare, then obviously "wimp-pussy" was practically non-existent.
Special Requirements:
"That 70's Show" - can't recall which episode...

I think that the word "wuss" was used before the 70's if you watch older shows such as happy day's and shows that took place in the 50's or 60's I think they used it.

The terms Wuss and Wussy was definately around in the 70's. I was in Jr high during the mid 70's and we used it all the time.

WHO REALLY CARES? Oh yeah, I'm not watching that show anymore because they said "wuss" in the wrong time period. The Flintstones have many examples of using stuff that hasn't even been invented then, but some people watch it, maybe because they don't really care!!!
