Slang help

I just want to check a couple of words (there will probably be more in future):

Was "sweet" (as in "cool") in common usage in the '70s?

Was "perv" or "pervert" in common usage in the '50s?

If anyone can verify (from having seen TV shows/movies from those eras or having lived through them :) ), please let me know.

Thanks!

I've been watching a "Good Times" marathon this weekend, and I know I've heard J.J. use the term "sweet."

According to this website, "sweet man" was used.
