Most of the 90s shows were similar (Ren and Stimpy, for example, was pretty disturbing), and as far as I can tell it hasn't negatively affected children.
I'd let my daughter watch that before I'd let her watch Hannah Montana, but mainly because I'd rather her watch babies having adventures as opposed to a teenager with two lives and constant "boyfriend" talk.
But thats just me.
If I noticed her bullying another child and saying because someone on a show did it, however, she wouldn't be watching that show anymore.
Holy MOLY! Now I feel OLD!!!!

I also watched RugRats, Ren and Stimpy, etc. I don't think I would put it on for my toddlers to watch, but an older child, I don't mind. And I do agree- Rugrats before Hannah Montana!!
