X are people, too[edit]

Does anyone have any sources which might date the snowclone "X are people, too"? Thanks, Jchthys (talk) 19:36, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Is it perhaps from the TV show Kids Are People Too (from 1978)? Equinox 19:40, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
I see 1930s bgc hits for "parents are people(,) too" and a 1923 one for "children are people, too".​—msh210 (talk) 22:08, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. That snowclone, as well as ‘mother of all X’, may be well worth including at some point (I may do it if I gather the necessary energy!).—Jchthys (talk) 00:44, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
