Good night, everybody!
Yakko Warner, telling the censors they screwed up for the umpteenth time.

You think cartoons are just for kids? These pages and pages of examples may shatter all your beliefs considering what they get past the radar.



  • Angry Beavers in the episode 'Zooing Time', Dagget begins putting on various animal masks and making the respective noises for each animal. At some point, as was noted by a friend of this troper, he comes out with a mask of a woman on and says 'woof woof'. Now, this could be attributed to the fact that Dagget isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, but the subtext is there.
  • For a web animation " reanimating" an episode of normaly family friendly " Super Mario World" the " Mama Luigi Project has two very vulgar moments.
    • During the " Torpedo Ted Chase" the titular enemy turns into a bullet bill( yes, the animation is that inconsistent) with two hands, one holding a knife and the other clearly flipping the bird. This is a blink-it-and-you-miss-it moment, though.
    • After when luigi squashes a wiggler, he scolds yoshi( while wildly going off model) but the seemingly inocent dinosaur is reading a magazine. Take a closer look, and the Magazine is titled "XXX" and Yoshi has those classic 1980's hypno eyes.
  • Blazing Dragons. A particular example is the allusions to the Arthur/Guinevere/Lancelot triangle of the King Arthur mythos in the case of Queen Griddle's obvious infatuation towards Loungelot. And then there's Sir Blaze.....
    • On the topic of Sir Blaze, the theme song/title sequence includes the knights extolling their virtues: "We're straight and true and good and kind..." Sir Blaze winks at the camera when he says the word, "Straight."
      • The whole line is "We're straight and true and good and kind and very good at knitting~". Just throwing that out there.
    • They also got away with S.O.B (Son Of a Briton)
  • Joshua Jones features a character called Spanner. The word Spanner is used as a somewhat vulgar insult, and its very surprising, considering that it was aimed at the same target audience as Fireman Sam.
  • The 1980s children's cartoon of The Legend of Zelda is full of stuff that wouldn't have made it past the radar if it were made today.
    • The first scene in the first episode has Link staring at Zelda's cleavage and commenting on how she looks good from where he's standing (which would be in a tower above Zelda's balcony). Seriously. This was in a children's cartoon based off of an NES game.
    • The episode "The White Knight" has Spryte barging in on Link while he's bathing, which includes her uttering the line, "I like you just the way you are!...especially at the moment!"
    • In the first episode, an earthquake causes Spryte to fall backwards. Not only does she not have a Magic Skirt, but she's also got nothing on underneath.
    • Spryte is basically the Anthropomorphic Personification of this trope. She's what you get when Handsome Lech gets a Gender Flip. In a kids' show.
      • It may be worth noting that the 1980s Legend of Zelda was shown in afternoon syndication, once a week, on Fridays no less, as part of the Super Mario Brothers Super Show, the one that had Captain Lou Albano as the live-action Mario. Also, the in-show adverts for it never featured episode previews, just the same few clips over and over again. If any show was set up to get past censors, it was this one.
      • It probably only got by because Spryte is a three-inch fairy.
  • Storm Hawks has a notable cast of strong female characters who tend to get... close. Most notably is in episode six, when Piper is attacked in a very peculiar manner by Master Cyclonis. She's on her back, with her legs spread, and Cyclonis thrusts forward with her staff. Also, in episode seven, Piper uses a low, seductive tone when talking to her (female) hero Starling, saying, "I can do other things too, you know..."
    • Another episode opened with Stork apparently finishing a bath, walking into the room with only a towel around his waist...and then losing it seconds later.
  • Rocky and Bullwinkle is remembered fondly largely due to this trope.
Cquote1.svg

Rocky: Bullwinkle, that's a team of girls! What kind of games can you play with girls?
Bullwinkle: Wow, this really is a kids' show. Parcheesi, of course!

Cquote2.svg
    • This takes on an added dimension if you're familar with a movie made around that time called Paris, When It's Hot, in which "playing Parcheesi" is a very obvious euphemism for having sex.
    • In one of the "Fractured Fairy Tales," a character says his day job involves pounding pigskins to be made into footballs.
Cquote1.svg

"You mean you're..."
"That's right, a hog flogger!"

Cquote2.svg
  • See how perverted the first episode of Rayman: The Animated Series is. Take Lac-Mac's act for example. A skinny teenage boy wearing what looks like a REALLY tight body suit comes into the middle of the ring, and the entire act is focusing on juggling, then rebounding the balls off his chest. Then his butt. Then he gets dragged off stage by a whip-wielding robot and shoved into a cage. And he's a FREAKING TEENAGER. Tell you what, while you're at it just handcuff him.
  • A Freaky Friday Flip episode of Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers swaps Dale and Gadget. Dale proceeds to examine his new butt... with his hands. Gadget-in-Dale notices quickly and orders him to "Keep the hands off the body!" Much to Dale's embarrassment (just in case you thought it was innocent).
    • While tame compared to some things on this page, Rescue Rangers had its moments of "Ew dirty!" here and there, including the unsavory implications of the obviously pre-teen Tammy the squirrel, a one-shot character, showing the adult Chip way too much affection. But my favorite would be this: Zipper, the team's mascot, of sorts, is a fly. Zipper the fly. Think about it.
  • In the children's cartoon Captain Pugwash, shown during children's viewing time on BBC TV in the UK, the Captain's crew were actually called: The Mate (usually addressed as "Master Mate"), Pirate Barnabas, Pirate Willy and Tom the Cabin Boy. Okay, "Master Mate" might sound like "Master Bates" if you weren't listening hard, and "Willy" is potentially lewd, but that's all. However, students' rag mags and other such publications soon started spicing up the names, introducing Master Bates, Seaman Staines and Roger the Cabin Boy. Ever since there has been a persistent urban legend that these were the real names. Many people even insist they remember hearing them on children's television. The BBC actually sued a national newspaper for printing this. (Snopes.com has the details.)
  • The little whistling voices of The Clangers did occasionally whistle out swear words, including "Oh sod it! The bloody thing's stuck again!" from Major Clanger, this line drew some complaints from executives but was left in. The line was later used as the sound effect for many of the toys
  • Seasons three and four of ReBoot were practically made of these moments. Such as:
    • The characters enter a Dragon Ball/Pokémon-spoofing game called "Pantsu Hebi X". This literally translates to "underwear snake".
    • Bob is wondering whether he is himself or a copy and Cecil the waiter comforts him.
Cquote1.svg

Cecil: So what if you're a copy? A lot of my friends are copies.

Cquote2.svg
    • Just... this:
Cquote1.svg

Ray: You blokes look uptight. You should try logging off, it relieves tension.

Cquote2.svg
      • Speaking of Ray, ask any fan about his infamous box scene.
    • In Season 1, Bob is captured by the pirate Captain Capacitor. Some graffiti on his cell wall includes the phrase, "Capacitor is flaccider."
    • Another Season 1 example, featuring the first appearance of Mouse:
Cquote1.svg

Mouse: We've got a mission to start. OK, sugah. And move it. Mah meter's runnin'.
closeup of Mouse's swaying hips and buttocks as she walks past the camera)
Megabyte: Indeed.

Cquote2.svg
    • In an early Season 3 episode, Sonic the Hedgehog parody Rocky the Rabid Raccoon is stopped by a Binome in a trenchcoat who flashes him. A second after the coat opens, you hear a loud, meaty sounding thump as something hits the ground, Rocky's eyes bulge out, he screams in terror, and runs away. The Binome looks over his shoulder at the camera and winks.
    • Complete with camera-shake!
    • In the third season:
Cquote1.svg

Herr Doktor: (regarding a captured Hexadecimal) I think she likes being tied up!
Megabyte: Let us not even think about that.

Cquote2.svg
    • What about this little gem? When Mike is asked by Daemon in "Daemon Rising" about whether or not he knows Hexadecimal, he responds:
Cquote1.svg

Mike: Know her! I used to live with her. Course, not in the Biblical sense, mind you..."

Cquote2.svg
    • More on that: Megabyte at this point appears to have dressed up Hexidecimal in bondage leather while she was out. So you have to wonder what that says about Megabyte...
    • At some point Her Dokktor calls Megabyte "Mein Fuhrer." Now that means "Leader," but considering the character's accent it's definitely a reference.
    • In the first episode of the fourth season:
Cquote1.svg

Hexadecimal: She expects too much from people. You need some down time. We... could go down together.
Bob: Uh... that's a good idea, but I can't.

Cquote2.svg
      • Also, a few seconds into the same scene:
Cquote1.svg

Hexadecimal: (Jolt) Ooh. Bob!
Bob: Wasn't me!

Cquote2.svg
  • The children's show Histeria! got away with saying "War is Hell" (as a historical reference, it was a skit involving William Tecumseh Sherman). It was immediately (and humorously) followed up by a Moral Guardians network censor character explaining that it was not okay to say "hell" on children's television. It's still quite surprising that it managed to stay in the episode in the first place, though. A similar skit on the show had the same censor complaining about the use of Admiral David Farragut's famous quote "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" (until she went out to sea and got blasted by a torpedo. As she clung to the floating remains of her lifeboat, she stated that maybe "Damn the torpedoes" is an appropriate line for this situation).
    • The kids chorus once sang a history of the Tudors to the tune of "Greensleeves";
Cquote1.svg

"In fifteen-hundred-and-forty-seven
Henry the Eighth went up to Heaven
Or maybe for his dirty tricks,
To H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks."

Cquote2.svg
    • Also, at one point Mr. Smarty-Pants (a character who wears extremely high pants that go up high enough to cover most of his face) explains he has his name because he's smart, and because he "spends a lot of time" in his pants. You can't say that wasn't deliberate.
      • Histeria! ran a segment with Mr. Smartypants titled "Things I Find in My Pants", in which he digs through his pants to find the Tricolor flag. Needless to say, network censor Lydia Karaoke is not pleased with this segment, but reluctantly has to go through with it when she's told that it's bringing in great ratings.
      • The first "American Revolution" episode featured events from around the world at the time, including "Catherine the Great ruled Russia". The show's horse chimes in with, "I'll say." There has long been a false but very persistent rumor that Catherine had died while being "serviced" by a horse when a rope holding up said horse broke. Either the censor didn't get the joke, or figured anyone who got it was old enough to get it.
  • In an episode of The Flintstones, Wilma is pregnant with Pebbles, and is close to giving birth. At one point, she informs Fred and Barney, who rush to get her to the hospital, making various mistakes along the way. Finally, Barney and Fred spirit Wilma into the hospital, but Barney moves so fast through the revolving door of the hospital, that Fred is spun out and across the street, through the revolving door of a hotel, and slams against the front desk. Innocently enough, he states the truth to the clerk, whom he thinks is a hospital admissions clerk, "I'm looking for my wife, she just came in here with my best friend." The Desk Clerk, responds with "Look, we don't want any trouble." Fred, not realizing the double entendre he's just made, says, "What kind of a hospital is this?" To which the desk clerk responds, "This is a hotel, the hospital is across the street."
  • The animated adaptation of The Mask was a wacky 1990s cartoon, and therefore, was chock full of Parental Bonus and the occasional risque jokes -- but...one episode stands out as the reason why American censorship (at least back in the 1990s) is considered a joke by most: season two's "Flight as a Feather," home to such "kid-friendly" references as political corruption [1], Cookie BaBoom and her suicide-belt bikini, and The Mask using Cookie's naked body to distract the cops. For more insanity, here are parts one and two of that infamous scene.
    • 3:48 - 4:06 of Part 2 (in which The Mask finds his feather at a bizarre performance art exhibit in a pillow factory).
Cquote1.svg

The Mask: That's my feather on your rump, chump.
Crisco The Performance Artist: Your feather? Ha ha ha. My art belongs to posterity.
The Mask: Yeah? Well your posterior belongs to me. *turns into a medieval knight*

Cquote2.svg
  • Kappa Mikey's fuzzy sidekick Guano, who can speak English but only ever says "Guano! Guano!" during Show Within a Show LilyMu. Guano is a synonym for crap.
  • Johnny Test is more clever; Johnny's dog is called Dukey. Which is a spin on "Duke" as a perfectly normal name for a dog. But the pronunciation is "dookie" which is also a synonym for crap.
    • One episode also had Dukey asking a dog:
Cquote1.svg

"You're a Shih Tzu, aren't you?"

Cquote2.svg
    • In "Hoist The Johnny Roger", when his dad says "Why can't you be more like your sisters?", Johnny says, "Well, for one, I have a--"
    • WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR A KID IN THIS TOWN TO GET WET?!?!?
      • Sexual or drug reference, either way it's amazing that that it got by.
    • "Johnny's Big Snow Job", anyone?
    • There was a recurring minor slacker character named Tim Burnout.
  • 6teen snuck "crap" and "suck" in. Quite a few times, actually.
    • They also snuck "ass" in on a couple of occasions, as well as several incidents of a cut short 'Bitch'.
Cquote1.svg

Jude: [about a DVD of a show] Dude! There's sex in H-E-R-E! [Beat, then laughs] I spelled the wrong word.

Cquote2.svg
    • Though not as severe, it's not something you'd see in cartoon now a days- The Valentine's episode where Jonsey sets up a booth to win a date with him. Then out of nowhere, a guy dresses in a hot pink cowboy outfit comes and signs up with a ridiculously high bid, in which Jude and Wyatt both point out to the distressed Jonsey that he never specifically said boys WEREN'T allowed to sign up. Also, when the bidding time's almost up, he grabs poor Jonsey with a lasso and drags him to him. Ah, Canada; where censorship is a little less strict than in America.
  • The Spectacular Spider-Man had a good one. Yay Double Entendres!
Cquote1.svg

Mary Jane: ... but if I can't dance with Pete, I guess I'll dance with... it's Randy, right?
Rand Robertson: Very.

Cquote2.svg
    • In "The Uncertainty Principle", Liz says to Peter (who is "dressed as Spider-Man" for Halloween) that he can web her up anytime.
    • In the "Persona" episode, Black Cat, who's loaded with these, tells Spidey "You'd better not get your goo in my hair".
    • The second season episode "Reinforcement" had Spider-man going up against Mysterio in a good ol' Sinister Six Showdown, and Spider-man mentions how ego-the-size-of-Florida!Mysterio is "the master of premature gloatulation".
    • Another second season gem, MJ on New Year's Eve. It's the wink after she says this line that does it.
Cquote1.svg

MJ: (to Gwen and Peter) You could go down to Times Square, watch the ball drop.

Cquote2.svg
  • For that matter, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series did a great job of this as well. Aside from nifty cuts that show a man being beheaded without anything graphic on screen we get Peter showing a video to his series love interest.
Cquote1.svg

"Okay, now here's the money shot."

Cquote2.svg
    • From the same episode, there's Male Gaze of Christina that hammers home the show is intended for teens.
    • Then we get Indy promising something hot and juicy for Peter, who nearly drops his phone in shock.
    • And the few times someone is talking to Peter/Harry as they've just woken up, and a girl walks out of their bedroom, adjusting their clothing...
    • And the liberal use of words most would censor.
  • And from Spider-Man: The Animated Series, when Felicia Hardy sees Doctor Octopus.
Cquote1.svg

"[He] reminds me of Flash Thompson: all hands."

Cquote2.svg
  • A particularly sneaky example was pulled off by Stan Lee early in Marvel's history, when the first cartoons based on their comics were being produced. One line of the theme is "exotically neurotic and aquatic superhero", according to the official lyrics sheet. Listen from 0:14 for any trace of an N sound.
  • As the theme song itself notes, the Cattanooga Cats were "doin' their thing" back in '69! Check out the lyrics to these songs:
  • Underdog's arch-enemy was named Simon Bar Sinister. In heraldry, the "Bar Sinister" is popularly considered to be the sign of an illegitimate offspring -- thus, his name really means "Simon Bastard".
  • In an episode of the original G.I. Joe cartoon series, Lady Jaye disguises herself as the Baroness to infiltrate Cobra's headquarters. She then gets into a little exchange with Destro in the following conversation.
Cquote1.svg

Destro: See me in my quarters when you are done, Baroness. I have some interesting hand-to-hand combat techniques to show you.
Lady Jaye: (speaking with Baroness' accent) Oh, I could get a real kick out of that.
Destro: That playful little minx.

Cquote2.svg
    • Made even more blatant if you consider that in the comic books, Destro and Baroness were secretly married.
      • For Nightmare Fuel or Fetish Fuel, add in the fact that Lady Jaye is Destro's somewhat removed cousin! ("Lady" ain't just a codename, though she doesn't have a formal title.)
  • In Garfield and Friends, "Sooner or Later", a disguised wolf sells Roy on the idea of... procrastination, but not before Roy protests, saying, "You can't talk about that on a cartoon show!" A similar response is voiced when Roy starts by spreading this radical new idea to Wade.
    • Also, Garfield claims that Binky's imposter, Stinky The Clown was "thrown out of the clown union for making naughty balloon animals."
    • Speaking of Binky, in the episode "The Binky Show", two moments that are this trope appear:
      • "It's time for TV's hottest and wettest game show, Name That Fish!"
      • During Binky the Clown's theme song, his pants drop, revealing that his legs are human colored and his boxers have hearts on them, and he takes off his nose doing this.
        • This also appears during the Screaming with Binky episode with the sandcastle, except because hearts are for girls, they changed them to circles, but he's only wearing his collar and everything on his head (and his gloves) is kept.
    • In "Sound Judgement" when the sound supervisor quits and leaves a note for Garfield, it ends with "take your crummy job and..." but Garfield refuses to finish the sentence.
  • One of the Garfield animated specials, Babes and Bullets, had Garfield in a Film Noir story playing Private Detective Sam Spayed:
Cquote1.svg

Femme Fatale: Are you Spayed?
Private Eye Monologue: I never know how to answer that question.

Cquote2.svg
    • The same special also essentially had Garfield get laid. Twice. By human women. The first time, in typical noir style, the sexy female client invites Sam Spayed to "have a little milk with her", and he reacts much as if she'd invited him in for coffee. At the end, his secretary picks up a pair of glasses and a bottle of milk, sashaying into Sam's office while throwing a few fanservice poses, inducing an "oh wow" reaction from Sam.
    • The original comic-strip version (part of the book version of Garfield: His 9 Lives) had the line "It isn't easy being a private dick with a name like Spayed".
  • The (regretfully) short-lived Road Rovers had quite of bit of these, taking advantage that the main characters are essentially dogs. Just to mention a few:
Cquote1.svg

Exile: I give all my comrades big kiss!
Blitz: Stop with the kissing, or I'll start with the biting.
Exile: OK, I give you big Bear Hug instead!
Blitz: (straining) Go back to the kissing! Go back to the kissing! Kiss me! Kiss meeee...
Exile: Don't be a weird boy.

Cquote2.svg
    • Exile's broken English and thick Russian accent, which is used to slip in swear words, and moments such as:
Cquote1.svg

Exile: (singing) Jingle balls! Jingle balls! Jingle all the balls!
Shag: (whisper whisper)
Exile: What? Jingle Bells? Never heard of 'em.

Cquote2.svg
    • Colleen at one point admitted being passioned about "squeaky toys shaped like bananas".
    • In the episode "The Dog Who Knew Too Much", Blitz was openly flirting to a couple of female dogs oddly standing at a corner in the city as they drove by. A reference to a prostitution area or mere coincidence? You decide!
    • And of course, this little number.
    • There is another episode where Hunter is giving orders for a mission:
Cquote1.svg

Hunter: Blitz I want you to guard the back entrance.
Blitz: I will bite anything that comes out of the rear.
Exile: Sigmund Freud would have field day with nut boy like you.

Cquote2.svg
  • The short-lived Clerks: The Animated Series had several dozen of these. In the commentary, Kevin Smith and company actually expressed surprise at several of the jokes they were capable of getting past the censors.
  • In The Chipmunk Adventure, the Chipettes encounter a roomful of snakes and decide to "charm" them. So they sing a song called "Gettin' Lucky", which includes a lot of gyrating, cooing at the snakes to make them react as if they were in love, and repeatedly singing "Gettin' lucky! Ooooo, gettin' lucky!"... and all of it while wearing harem outfits.
    • Not to mention that they're called "The Chipettes" in the first place, since "chippie" is a slang term for a girl with loose morals.
  • In My Life as a Teenage Robot, "Hostile Makeover", Brad explains to Jenny she's going through robo-puberty, and lets her know what it's like for humans. Embarrassed by robo-acne, she puts a bag over her head and complains it smells like fish tacos.
    • In "Mind Over Matter", Jenny has difficulty fighting an opponent and so tries to "download something off the Internet" to help. Her mother replies, "XJ-9, no! You'll go blind!"
    • In the episode "The Price of Love," which is about Sheldon wanting to make Jenny jealous by paying a girl to be his faux-girlfriend, there are a few things that caught this troper's attention. One is that all the popular girls get in on the action, all offering their services for cash. But don't worry, as the original girl put it, there are stripulations, causing Sheldon to go, "Don't you mean stipulations?" Granted, they're "no hugging, no kissing," and a few unreadable things, but this troper found some of the connotations with the plot to be... interesting for a Y-7 rated show.
      • Apparently, so did the fan artists. Warning: NSFW
      • If you liked that, you'll love this. In the episode "Voyage to the Planet of the Bikers" the Space Bikers are revealed to have normal day jobs on their home world as staff and faculty in an elementary school. Tammy is a teacher shown standing in front of a blackboard with a diagram reading "birds + bees = babies". While pointing to this diagram she directs her students to turn to page 69 in their textbooks.
  • SnooPING AS usual, I see!
    • Even better: the Spanish (1:35 - pene), German (dödel), and Swedish (not snasom, but manslem) translations of the same scene contain a word for "penis" in their respective languages.
    • Another "use" of the word has been adapted from the Christmas special, in which Robotnik disguised as Santa, as part of an evil plan, declares, "Ah; happiness is always so much more enjoyable when it is based on the misery of millions!" This one is less popular and less likely to have been intentional, but the clip gets some additional mileage because it can be used in plural tense.
    • Also, when Robotnik builds himself a robot wife...
Cquote1.svg

Scratch: It's beautiful, doctor.
Grounder: Yeah! It's got really big--
Scratch: HAIR! (Grounder nods hastily)

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Luigi: Since you ate the whole thing, now you can do the hoe thing!

Cquote2.svg
  • In the Donkey Kong Country episode "Get a Life! Don't Save One!", Dixie's looking for her pet crab, Crabby. Diddy offers to help:
Cquote1.svg

Diddy: Ah, never fear, Diddy's here! Just shove a hor d'evoure plate in front of me and I can find a crab with my eyes closed. HERE, CRAPPY! CRAPPY! Here, Crappy, Crappy...
Dixie: It's Crabby!

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Protoman: (in response to a lame pun) Yeah. Whatever turns you on, Doc.

Cquote2.svg
    • Then there's this line. No way it'd get past censors today.
Cquote1.svg

Roll: Go powder your own snatch!

Cquote2.svg
  • The episode of Cow and Chicken entitled "Buffalo Gals" featured "a [female] biker group that randomly breaks into people's houses and chews on their carpet". For some reason, the episode was only broadcast once.
  • In an episode of Jacob Two Two, the titular character has to give a speech. His assignment? The birds and the bees. Buford doesn't get what's so bad about two cute little animals, and Renee whispers something into his ear. After getting off the ground, Buford decides,
Cquote1.svg

Buford: I will never look at a bird or a bee the same way again.

Cquote2.svg
    • Bullies occasionally tease the titular character with the name "Jacob Two-Four". For you non-Canadians, "two-four" is a slang term for a 24-pack of beer.
  • In the opening to one episode of Being Ian, a sign reads, "Hello, students!" Then, the O falls off and the camera zooms in on the new word. Also, there's a Canadian Tire knock-off called... Crappy Tire.
  • Isidoro managed to successfully portray Isidoro Cañones as a womanizer despite being a comic book/cartoon aimed mainly at kids and preteens. It should be noted that, unlike Johnny Bravo, Isidoro almost never strikes out, having thus to overcome harder censor restrictions than Bravo. Hell, the cartoon made a point of sexualizing Cachorra to a degree never found in the comics.
    • Patoruzito has Isidorito having a vision on how his life will be when he grows up. It's innocent enough until you remember he grows up to become the aforementioned Isidoro Cañones...
    • Patoruzito 2: La Gran Aventura has the main villain, an old witch in the vein of Witch Hazel, capture a fairy and using her power to turn into a Maya, one of the ancient wizard-gods of Middle Earth. This powerup restores her lost youth, turning her into a pretty hot woman. Her two goblin assistants quite obviously leer at her regained curves.
  • In the short-lived USA Network cartoon Wing Commander Academy, the episode "Invisible Enemy" features Maniac on the outs with the rest of the crew because they think he abandoned his wingman in favor of racking up more kills. In the mess hall, he complains to Maverick that it "Seems like I'm about as popular around here as chipped beef on toast." This dish is more commonly known as shit on a shingle.
  • In one episode of The Smurfs, Bigmouth the ogre had just stolen the Smurf's entire warehouse of food and the Smurfs were trying (obviously) to get it back. Smurfette tries to use her "feminine wiles" to charm him into giving the food back. The opening dialogue was:
Cquote1.svg

Bigmouth: (to the Smurfette standing in his open hand) What you want, Smurf?
Smurfette: (vamping) Oh, you silly ogre, I'm not a SMURF, I'm a SmurfETTE. (pause, hands on hips) Wanna see?
Bigmouth: (long pause, vehement headshake) ... No.

Cquote2.svg
    • Let alone the fact that Smurfette origin story was that she was made by the Big Bad in an attempt to seduce Papa Smurf
  • Captain Planet's Very Special Episode about a kid having HIV (!) manages to have one Jerk Jock nearly accuse his friend of homosexuality before getting cut off.
Cquote1.svg

Random Kid: You're sticking up for him? Maybe you got it too. Maybe you and him--
Jeff: Shut it!

Cquote2.svg
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003
    • "Shell" gets thrown around a lot, and not just as a euphemism. Often, the turtles use it as a colloquial compound of "shit" and "hell," and in phrases that commonly use either.
      • There is at least one occasion where one of the Turtles is clearly about to say something else, with a second-long delay on "ssshhhell!"
    • Okay, a minor slang term isn't that bad, but in another episode, it may have been an illusion, but Leonardo impales Splinter... On-screen.
    • Bishop at one point has his head get impaled just off-screen, and silver blood can be seen later.
    • In a Halloween episode, Michelangelo, in discussing the rules of horror movies, states that having fun is a good way to get killed. Anyone who has seen Scream knows exactly what kind of fun he means.
    • "Same As It Never Was": Which makes you wonder why the media took "Insane In The Membrane" off air when that episode probably had the worst Nightmare Fuel.
    • "Um, you’re not planning on spanking him, are you?" (Donatello to Professor Willard, regarding his giant pet monkey in the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series episode, "Turtles Of The Jungle")
      • And Leonardo in the 80's TMNT episode, 'April Gets In Dutch' -- "I bet they're not in that net for the halibut."
    • The following exchange:
Cquote1.svg

Donatello: Just wait there for someone to pick you up.
Irma: I'm not that kind of girl.

  • DePatie-Freleng, a studio known for Pink Panther, did a theatrical series in the early seventies called The Blue Racer, about a blue snake who chased a Japanese Beetle. In one cartoon, Beetle introduced himself to a bee by saying "I am Japanese Beetle and you are a son of a bee!" My guess is theatrical cartoons were allowed more freedom than the TV counterparts.
  • From the X-Men Animated Series in the early '90s, the episode "Child of Light" showed Beast quoting Emily Dickinson, saying, "Parting is all we know of Heaven. And all we need of Hell". Keep in mind that this was originally aired on Fox Kids. It's a somewhat odd example, as it didn't so much sneak past the radar as it did squawk the proper IFF and get waved on through. True, the word in question was in the context of a quote from a respected poet, but it was still jarring to hear on a network and timeslot known for liberal use of Never Say "Die".
    • Also in X-Men, the episode "Time Fugitives" features Rogue calling a Friends of Humanity goon a "peckerwood," a slang term that means "white trash" and sounds dirtier.
  • An episode of Robotboy managed to get away with one of the bad guys calling a fellow villain a jack-ass.
  • For some old school crap under the radar, don't forget Scooby Doo. Famous are Shaggy and Scooby's not so subtle hippie tendencies, including constant "munchies" for Scooby Snacks and smoke occasionally coming out of the mystery machine.
    • Is there anyone left who doesn't know that "Scooby Snacks" were code for "hash brownies"? Plus you had had four teenagers, two male, two female who, as far as anyone could tell, lived out of the van.
    • Then there's this little bit from What's New Scooby Doo, in a talk between the gang and Velma's cousin, who's obviously interested in the older Fred.
Cquote1.svg

Velma: "I didn't know it was your birthday today!"
Margie: "Yep! I'm eighteen now. Old enough to legally... (turns seductively to Fred)... vote"

  • In the second Addams Family animated series (from 1992), in the episode "Hide And Go Lurch" one of the items in the attic is a dresser dummy with three breasts.
  • The Dreamworks film Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" had several amusing moments in this regard. Two of the most notable:
    • Sinbad relating to Marina the tale of how he met Proteus, in particular the sword pointed at his--"Pickles and eggs!"
    • In an icebound region, Sinbad remarking to his first mate, "Put on a shirt before you poke someone's eye out!"
    • And when Sinbad tells his first mate they're going to Fiji:
Cquote1.svg

Sinbad: Think of the women...
Kale: They're cannibals, Sinbad.
Sinbad: Exactly!

Cquote2.svg
    • In the scene where Sinbad first finds Marina on the ship, she can clearly be heard to mutter something about running a brothel in Syracuse.
    • There's another part where Marina offers Sinbad something the first time they meet on the ship, and his eyes flick quickly down at her breasts before asking her what it is. (It was some jewels, by the way.)
  • In Soviet Union, many animators and directors managed to make satire animations about idol workers and bureaucracy. There Lived Kozyavin and Man In The Frame were a some of these which managed to not get a government ban.
  • Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!: "I like doing it! It makes me feel rather tingly!"
  • In one episode of the Dilbert TV series, Dogbert hypnotises Wally into thinking that he's a cow. Dilbert gets angry at Dogbert, as he's supposed to be hypnotising Wally into reparing a computer. Dogbert offers him a glass of warm milk to calm him down. As soon as Dilbert takes a sip, Wally moos and Dilbert spits the "milk" out in disgust.
    • In that same episode, Wally says "orgasms".
      • The exact exchange went thusly:
Cquote1.svg

Dogbert: I can make him walk a tightrope across a ravine.
Asok: Does it have to be a ravine? Can it be any sort of chasm?
Dogbert: Sure. Ravine, or gulch, or chasm.
Wally: (still under hypnosis) Orgasm. ...Huh?

Cquote2.svg
    • Another episode has Dilbert's rude neighbors the Pierpontes having a pen built for their pet elephant and an open trench being dug in Dilbert's yard in the process. He falls into it, and tears out the seat of his pants, and of his underwear as well. Naturally, he faces away from the viewer as he climbs out.
  • In the Pinky and The Brain song/episode "A Meticulous Analysis of History" Brain sings about various would-be world conquerors who have preceeded him. Among these is Caligula, who's shown trying to sneak into a group of boyscouts while the song goes:
Cquote1.svg

Brain:
Caligula was no boyscout.
He did things we can't even talk about.
The Romans knew he'd lost his head
when he filled a vacant senate seat with Mr. Ed.
Pinky:
What's wrong with being friendly with a thoroughbred?

Cquote2.svg
  • In Futurama, one year 3000 product is a cross between a hot dog and an eclair that squirts cream when you eat it.
    • Let's not forget the 'Magic Tentacles' bed....which is more painful than anything else.
    • When Fry finds a VW van from the 1960s, Professor Farnsworth asks him, where is the device to make time slow down or speed up? Fry holds up a bong. The script described it just as a "weird bottle" and the writers couldn't believe Fox allowed them to include it.
    • In one episode the crew visits a gymnasium. We see a woman (from the waist up) sitting in a machine called the "Kegelcizer". Weights are going up and down, but needless to say we can't see what she's actually doing to move them. In the episode commentary the creators described this as the dirtiest joke they ever got away with.
    • In another, when Zoidberg leads the Decapodians in an uprising against Earth, they storm down in their crab-clawed ships and cut off the tip of the Washington Monument. Keep in mind that the Decapodians are portrayed as being stereotypically Jewish.
      • They cut off the tip of the Clinton Monument. Which is like the Washington Monument, but bigger.
    • The movie Futurama: Bender's Big Score gets two in in the same scene. First, when Zoidberg stitches Farnsworth's severed hand back on:
Cquote1.svg

Hermes: You do a good hand job, Zoidberg.

Cquote2.svg
    • And then when Zoidberg accidentally stitches Hermes's head on backwards:
Cquote1.svg

Zoidberg: I thought you were happy. Your tail is wagging.

Cquote2.svg
    • When Bender confessed that he can't get up when knocked on the back:
Cquote1.svg

Hermes: Interesting. Maybe we should test this erectile dysfunction of yours, Bender.

Cquote2.svg
  • In the 2006 Curious George movie, despite otherwise being an utterly innocent movie, there's a scene where Ted [The Man in the Yellow Hat] is driving through New York during a traffic jam. In one part, he yells out the window: "Oh yeah? Well that is not physically possible for me to do!" Hmmm... What do you suppose they told him to do?
  • Batman Beyond had a seemingly ghostly presence inhabiting the girls' locker room, playfully messing with them in the shower area mainly by turning the water on and off. Their depiction with towels and head-wraps was one thing. But later, when Terry hears of it, he comments about how he wishes he'd thought of being invisible in the girls' shower.
Cquote1.svg

Nelson: Let's go for a ride.
Blade: You like that car more than me.
Nelson: Who said anything about cars?

Cquote2.svg
  • In the Canadian series Yvon of the Yukon, an implied-to-be-homosexual convict opens a bar called Gary's Bar. As the bar's name is being shown in neon lights, the r, apostrophe and s all blink out. Yvon got away with quite a lot (heck, he was thawed from a block of ice with dog urine in the opening). This was shown on a weekday afternoon cartoon block. Pre-2006 YTV was pretty awesome.
  • Arthur does this with its parental bonuses.
    • One of the characters' names is Prunella. "Prunella" is apparently an eighteenth-century term for a prostitute.
  • One certain episode of Two Stupid Dogs had said dogs try to watch a drive-thru movie. After sneaking in with their own car, the smaller dog got bored and asked "Why do people come here?". Zoom out to the entire car-filled lot (and even the film, with a car on a cliff) bouncing and squeaking suggestively [2].
    • Another episode had a dorky unpopular kid take the dogs in for show and tell. While showing the dogs to the class he says "They're...boy dogs. You know how you can tell if they're boy dogs?" After this he lifts up the smaller dog, two boys gasp in shock and one girl smiles with an excited "Ooh!"
    • Yet another had the dogs attempting to get into the supermarket by piling shoes on the rubber mat outside. At one point on their search for more shoes, they find themselves at a strip club, with the little dog telling one of the dancers (shown in silhouette with her removed bra in hand) to take off her shoe.
    • And of course the episode featuring the parody of The Brady Bunch, which included the teenage brother and sister having an argument, then making up by making out (and in context).
  • In the CGI Halloween special Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy (sequel to Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular) Bug-A-Boo enters the party late in the special only to be trampled and then scared silly by Jimmy (getting his revenge from the first movie). Take notice of what Bug-A-Boo was carrying in... it was a large beer keg.
  • Since this IS Sam and Max, after all, the animated series was rife with this (despite reportedly being toned down from the source material). The Christmas episode has two in the space of less than a minute: As Sam, Max, and Sam's Grandma Ruth emerge into a prison shower room, Sam says, "If these walls could talk!" Max shudders and opines that they can just keep their mouths shut. Then, Max finds himself presented with a bar of soap on the floor. As he bends over to pick it up, his butt is festooned with a sign that reads "Do Not Open Until X-Mas".
    • One episode showed an alternate timeline where Sam, instead of becoming a police officer, decided to dedicate his life to peacefully observing and worshipping the interconnectedness of all things. The justification for this was that he'd discovered hallucinogens. In a similar vein, the war movie parody "We Drop At Dawn" shows them finding a hippie hiding in a bush with suspiciously-shaped leaves.
  • In one episode of X-Men: Evolution, An extremely angry Wanda is looking for Pietro. He sees her coming, and dashes off screen while giving a panicked order that the others are not to tell her where he is. When she enters the room and asks where he is, Toad snickers and says "Oh, him? Hiding in the closet." There's a reason fanfic writers like Pietro so much...
    • In one of the last episodes of the series, Cajun Spice, Rogue and Gambit go to Louisiana in search of Gambit's father. They arrive there during Mardi Gras, Rogue making the comment that she has always loved Mardi Gras. One scene later, they are both in a restaurant and she has two pairs of beads on. Sure, you CAN buy them, but everyone knows the more... *ahem* common method of acquiring them.
  • In one episode of The Snorks, Bigweed sprayed "silly spray" on the Snork's reefberry crop, and when the Snorks ate them, they started "acting silly"- in other words, the started acting like they were on weed. And to top it all off, the title of this episode was "Reefberry Madness".
  • In one episode of Trollz, Coal distracts Snarf, who's a puppy most of the time, by telling him that his fly's undone. After being tricked, Snarf realizes that he doesn't wear pants.
    • In the same episode, the girls used this subverted rhyme when fighting Simon, the Big Bad:
      • "Simon is crude and Simon is crass, turn this loser into a DONKEY!"
  • This little exchange in Home Movies:
Cquote1.svg

Jason: (after binging on candy) Melissa, come on. Don't do this. Kiss me.
Melissa: ...it's the sugar talking.
Jason: (hugging her) Come on.
Melissa: Get off! You're all sticky!
Jason: It's OK, it's just candy. It comes out in the wash. Everything does. (winks suggestively)

Cquote2.svg
    • Worth noting that these characters are seven and eight years old, respectively.
    • Also, after Brendon steals his mother's romance novel for his play, we get this:
Cquote1.svg

Melissa: (reading the script) So Jason's playing the dentist?
Brendon: Uh-huh. And you're the female.
Melissa: ...shouldn't this say "root canal"?
Brendon: Let me see...no, it's "love canal". It's a different kind of a...thing.

Cquote2.svg
    • Then, when they're looking over cassettes of movies they don't remember making:
Cquote1.svg

Jason: What about this one? "The Magic Balls"...
Melissa: Yeah, I wasn't there for that one.

Cquote2.svg
    • Jason refers to the monster in their film "Septopus" as having seven testicles.
    • While Linda, Brendon's father's wife, is having a baby:
Cquote1.svg

Brendon: Knock-knock!
Brendon: WHO'S THERE?!
Melissa: FUCK YOU!

Cquote2.svg
  • From Moral Orel:
    • Convincing most of the student body of his school to drink his urine. And this, when his dad demands to know what Orel's "juice" really is:
Cquote1.svg

Clay: I've been around the block a few times. I know that taste.

Cquote2.svg
  • In the season 2 episode of Winx Club where princess Amentia is trying to force Brandon to marry her, at one point while Brandon is trying to avoid her, he falls onto her bed. Then Amentia says: "Why wait until the wedding?" Apparently she just wants him to kiss her, but still...
  • In the Peanuts movie Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown, Snoopy's rental car gets rear-ended twice during the gang's trip through France, and both times Snoopy makes rude gestures (obscured by the fact he has paws) while Marcie cusses out the other driver in French.
    • Another Peanuts example, in Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown: Snoopy comes in and kisses all of the girls in the girls' tent good night. When he jumps on to Peppermint Patty's waterbed, however, the subsequent waves send both Snoopy and Patty bouncing and flying uncontrollably all over the bed. Marcie walks over to complain about the noise, telling Patty, "Couldn't you just kiss him good night and leave it at that?"
  • Big Guy and Rusty The Boy Robot had two of these. In one episode, Rusty is hanging onto a missile that is flying towards a large structure used to block a river. When he realizes this, he shouts "DAM!"
    • In another, he and Big Guy are fighting the Legion Ex Machina, who are named by numbers. When the second in command is flung towards rotating air circulation enhancer, Rusty remarks offhandedly that "Number Two just hit the fan."
  • Atlantis: The Lost Empire has a Parental Bonus-only crap past the radar moment. When the Atlanteans first show up and are revealed to speak a form of French, the little French mole-man goes in with 'Voulez voucou' and then whispers the rest into the ear of the very attractive Atlantean woman who is standing there half naked. She punches him. You know, for kids!
  • The Animated Adaptation of Cybersix had this little gem from Lori in episode five:
Cquote1.svg

Lori: Oh, I went by Adrian's last night. He was with some freaky chick dressed up in a black cape and matching tights. Guess Adrian isn't as straight-laced as everyone thinks he is.

Cquote2.svg
    • Not to mention the Nazi subtext of Von Reichter and Cybersix's cross dressing
  • In ChalkZone, anyone else notice that Penny is the bustiest kid in her class? At ten years old?
    • And there was this little line in the episode where Queen Rapsheba was preforming a pop-style musical of Rapunzel. When she meets the knight to rescue her in the play, she says seductively, "And asks if he can come up to my room!".
    • In the same episode, when Snap tells Rabshiba that he'll do a favor for her, we can see that he's staring prominently at her chest. At first, we think this is because of his hight, but they're both the same size. And he's also got a wide grin on his face. And isn't he supposed to have the body and mind of an eight-year-old child?
  • The Critic could squeeze some amazingly naughty jokes by from time to time:
Cquote1.svg

A dressmaker:Here's the skinny. We dressmakers have a very strict code, so I need to know: do you deserve to wear virginal white? Because if you don't you'll have to wear an off-white, what we call a "hussy white." (holding up two bolts of fabric) So which will it be? White white...?//
Margo: Yes. (Beat) Um, except for the gloves.//

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Kendall: Well then, where is this super skateboard of yours?
Class oohs.
Kick: Its an oral report, not show and tell.
Class oohs once more with Kendall blushing.

Cquote2.svg
  • In the He-Man cartoon, there's the episode "Betrayal Of Stratos", in which Whiplash apparently decides to keep Hawk as a pet... in a birdcage.
  • This screencap from Freakazoid!.
  • The first episode of Count Duckula was titled "No Sax Please, We're Egyptian", a reference to the play No Sex Please, We're British. Yes, they made a pun on the word Sex for a children's cartoon.
    • The same episode has the characters singing the "Drunken Sailor" sea shanty. They stop before getting to any of the off-color verses, but suffice it to say, this is not a children's song.
      • Nevertheless, the song appears in numerous books of songs for children (in the UK, at least) and was taught in primary schools in the 80s. Obviously, the ruder verses were left out but the song as taught was still generally beyond the ken of those it was being taught to.
  • 6:10 of this episode of Chorlton and The Wheelies. One just has to see it for themselves.
  • In the House of Mouse short "Mickey's Big Break" wherein Mickey and Donald crossdress to look like their girlfriends, there is a scene where they run into Mortimer Mouse carrying his dry-cleaning and knock him over. When he realises Mickey isn't Minnie, he pulls a polka-dotted pair of panties out of his laundry. If you aren't looking too closely, it looks like he's taken them off Mickey.
    • Worse yet, Mortimer gets in trouble because, as far as the police know, he's removing Minnie's clothing.
    • And Minnie and Daisy walking on Mickey and Donald in female clothing...with Goofy taking thee picture with his pants down.
  • James and the Giant Peach has one during one of the squabbles between Centipede and Grasshopper (they just have a lot of moments, don't they...):
Cquote1.svg

Grasshopper: What's your LATITUDE? What's your LONGITUDE?
Centipede: Hey, hey, that's personal, bub!

Cquote2.svg
  • In the Animated Adaptation for The Savage Dragon, Bigoted police officer Niesman is possessed by the Fiend, a demon that feeds on the hatred of those he possesses. The Possessed officer goes off on a screed against Super Freaks, then reveals that his racism isn't just Fantastic Racism when he turns to his Black police chief and says: "And you're just as bad!"
  • In the western animation kids movie, Charlotte's Web, Wilbur tells Templeton that "there are 514 eggs in that sack!" and Templeton goes "This has been a night!"
    • Bonus points for his being voiced by Paul Lynde, AKA this trope in human form.
  • Despite being a children's cartoon, Word Girl has quite a few of these.
    • In the pilot episode (at least when the show went from two-minute to half-hour episodes), Tobey (who not-so-secretly is rather interested in WordGirl) mentioned something to her like, "You think you're so smart, don't you? But you can be beaten, just like everyone else! I'm going to prove that I'm smarter than you, and then you'll be mine, all mine!"
      • Which was brought to great effect by the look WordGirl gave him, coupled by her response, "Wait, what do you mean I'll be all yours?"
  • In Batman the Brave And The Bold gets crap past the radar in nearly every episode, but taken to the extreme level in "Night of the Huntress!"
    • "Menace Of The Conqueror Cavemen!": Kr'ull seems to have an...interesting reaction to turning his girlfriend into a cavewoman.
    • In the cold open for "Inside the Outsiders": every single line of dialogue between Batman and Catwoman. Taken to new heights when Batman mentions he should "collar" Catwoman with a crafty smile. At the end of a short scuffle, he then ties her up with her own whip. Ooh, Batman, you kinky man, you...
      • At the end of that episode, it isn't said what "happy thoughts" Batman used to defeat Psycho Pirate, but given the way said cold open ended...
    • In "Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure!:"
Cquote1.svg

Blue Beetle (regarding Planetmaster): You don't want to know what he does with Uranus.

Cquote2.svg
    • There's also a scene at one point where flipping through channels eventually yields "...It's called 'The Aristocrats!'"
    • "Clash of the Metal Men!" has Platinum turning into a chair for Batman with her face being the seat. Not to mention her common Double Entendres.
    • Episode 12 of Season 2 brings us this:
Cquote1.svg

Detective Chimp: Well, hello there. I don't believe we've had the pleasure. I'm Chimp. Detective Chimp.
Vixen: B'wany, combine him with something, so we can escape.
Detective Chimp: I'd rather he combine you and I, my dear. We'd make quite the couple, don't you think?

Cquote2.svg
    • "A Bat Divided!"'s Slacker!Batman is very reminiscent of a stoner. He even claims a case of the munchies!
    • "The Mask of Matches Malone!" involves a song by the Birds of Prey about how bad the male superheroes are in bed, except Batman who they all praise. It isn't even remotely subtle.
  • Quite a few examples in The Thief and the Cobbler. When your plot device is golden balls it's very easy to sneak ball jokes in and leave even the most moral of guardians think it's a harmless, plot-relevant piece of dialogue. Even when it's "Now that I have the balls, I'll go see the King!" ...Yeah. Not to mention the Something Else Also Rises moment where Zigzag looks at Princess Yumyum and his beard unfurls at her.
    • Kindama...
  • Biker Mice From Mars is notorious for all the crap the Finnish dubbing team smuggled in during the 90s. The show was broadcasted in a kiddie slot. Perhaps the most memorable quote would be "Eiköhän se riitä, että se jyrää tän Leipiksen uuden dildon!", i.e. "I guess it's OK if it can [better] Limurg[er]'s new dildo!" They also got in various degrees of profanity, and loads of vocabularity-based Parental Bonus on the naughty side.
  • Rock-a-Doodle has Hunch, the Duke's nephew, clearly starring at Goldie's breasts when he breaks in the airship.
  • The movie My Scene: Jammin' in Jamaica contains a song called Spontaneous Combustion. Its opening lyrics are:
Cquote1.svg

I'm on my way, but I don't know
What to do, or where to go
I'm so nervous, I feel sick
I hope I don't come off like a jerk.

Cquote2.svg
  • In the Dragon Hunters episode "Prince Charming", at one point a hick wants to know if Gwizdo knows Prince Charming personally, to which Gwizdo replies: "Well, he slept in my bed. Can't get much more personal than that!"
  • The Emperors New School has one. At one point, Kuzco and Kronk try faking a radiation leak to get their teacher to leave. Kronk staggers out with a wooden arm....around his waist area....with a blown-up rubber glove on the end....moaning about how the radiation has mutated him. The teacher simply pulls the arm off and says, "Kronk, your 'mutant arm' is made of wood." Cue strange grin from Kronk.
    • In "Space People", the Space People in question speak Kazoo language. Kronk says, "There's no such thing as Space People," to them, makes them repeat it (in Kazoo) and walks off. After Kronk is gone, one of the Space People says "What was that?" or at least, he's supposed to. It sounds more like "What the ---- was that?". Some people may say "It says heck" because there's no way of telling, but it's clearly a one-syllable word ending in a hard c sound.
  • In the cat-and-dog-on-sofa sketches from Creature Comforts, there's a shelf full of books behind them. You'd never be able to read the titles on-screen, but the set is on display in Bristol, and you can make them out. One clear example of this trope is a book that has the word 'art' in (relatively) large letters on the spine, but a very close examination reveals that there are smaller letters to either side of this, making the full title 'piss artist'. [3]
  • Done in the Jimmy Neutron/Fairly Oddparents Crossover. Timmy uses a Hypno-Ray on Jimmy's mom, making her think she's a superheroine(Mighty Mom). When she sees Jimmy's dad, she perceives him as her sidekick.
Cquote1.svg

Hugh Neutron: Oh...I get it, you want to play one of those...special games. Can I chase you, this time?

Cquote2.svg
    • We later get this:
Cquote1.svg

Judy Neutron: Quick, Lint-Boy! To the Mom-Lair!
Hugh Neutron: Hehe, now you're talking..

Cquote2.svg
  • The pre-G4 My Little Pony series had this, though not to the extent of the new series. In one episode where the Big Brothers came around, many of the Ponies became a little too happy; the episode is also tinted with innuendo, and Fan Wank suggests that around that time is when the Ponies breed (though a non-canon comic suggested that Baby Ponies come from Mirrors, but that only produces look-a-likes and not regular fillies). Ponies were very touchy around each other in G1 compared to other gens, though they lacked the Anthropomorphic Shift of future series so it was just animal innocence.. probably. A noticeable one [dead link] happens in Tales. One Imagine Spot by the resident fan service girl Bon-Bon featured her in suggestive poses, in Bikinis at that. In the same Imagine Spot two Mares were staring into each others eyes rather suggestively, and embracing each other, on a magazine cover.
    • In "Return Of Tambelon", and other G1 era MLP episodes, the process of a unicorn teleporting or phasing out of visibility is referred to as "winking". A Pony "winks out" to disappear, and "winks in" to reappear. In reality, "winking" has a VERY different meaning for equines. When a mare is winking, she is flexing the muscles of her exterior genitals /)O_O(\ to indicate that she is in estrus (aka. in heat) and is currently ovulating. It's a visual cue to let stallions know she is ready to be mounted. Very different meaning indeed!
      • Given the fact that I've not heard the term used in G4 My Little Pony, I'm guessing the current production crew may be aware of that definition, and may be avoiding the usage of the term.
    • Something non-sexual that got past the radar in The Movie: Hidia brags about how the last time the Smooze was unleashed, it wiped out Grundleland and all but a tiny handful of Grundles. She is bragging about genocide. In a kid's movie.
      • Katrina also attempted to murder a baby on-screen, and almost died herself.. The original villain of the series just straight up died.
    • The toys had a pony named "Lucky". He was the first male pony. His name is probably a reference to his horse-shoe marking, but it comes off as a Double Entendre considering he was then the only stallion in a world full of mares.
    • There's a ceramic figurine of two mares getting married.
    • Razzaroo's photo album had many suggestive pictures of several ponies. It seems like she just flashed at the wrong time or position, but Minty's picture in particular..
  • In the episode of Jimmy Neutron "Out darn Spotlight", Betty Quinlan wears a obviously suggestive outfit for a play.
  • The baby show Oswald says: "My banana, Weenie, it's grown overnight!"
  • From a Popples comic:
Cquote1.svg

Putter: I see her!
Pretty Bit: She's getting dressed in the LOCKER ROOM!

Cquote2.svg
    • In the second half of the cartoon itself, the Popples claim you pull the Puffling's middle to get the joke, but it more looks like "it produces a joke when you tug on it's winkie"...sounds familiar?
    • In Popples Alley, when PC appears, it sounds like Potato Chip says "Hell" because many people were talking at one time.
  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force gets away with a lot, but still has a radar to dodge as the episode "G-Wiz" devoted itself to explain ("What ARE Standards And Practices?"). Billywitchdoctordotcom gives us a brilliant example of this:
Cquote1.svg

Frylock, Carl and Meatwad: I am... Sofa King... We Todd Ed.
Billywitchdoctordotcom: He he he... you say silly things.

Cquote2.svg
  • In the Ace Ventura animated series, Ace kept his air-humping schtick. There was even an episode where he did it on a daytime talk show and the host told him he couldn't do that.
  • The Bratz cartoon is rated Y7, but has whole episodes with heavy themes played for laughs. One episode has the girls investigating whether Burdine murdered one of her interns, and another has four of the main characters get kidnapped and taken to an abandoned building by two older guys. All four of them are teenage girls.
  • The Nelvana cartoon Beetlejuice episode "Pest O' The West" featured an enraged bull ghost who responds to an interruption in his wedding ceremony with Lydia by screaming "nobody cuts off my nuptials and gets away with it!" This troper has spoken to the animators in question: yes it was deliberate, and yes they were amazed that they got away with it.
