Enjoy this naughty, nasty, and otherwise adult imagery that somehow made it into numerous cartoon shows long thought safe for children…
So… did you like Laser Time’s episode concerning adult jokes hidden in kids cartoons? We hope so, because if you haven’t heard it already you should LISTEN BEFORE you scroll down (otherwise you’ll spoil the surprises for yourself!) Assuming you’ve listened already, there were several naughty references that could only be conveyed and/or better showcased visually. Oh boy, this is fun!
Get it?! ASSSSSSSSSSS!
Below you’ll find numerous instances of rapscallion writers and animators penetrating your eyeballs with humor you were probably too young to understand. Which is a shame actually, beause you probably would’ve thought it was even more hilarious back then. Oh, and thanks to the smut detectives in the YouChew forums, who supplied several of the images and videos.
BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES
We played some rather ribald clips of Harley Quinn, but this bizarre clip featuring her seducing the Joker simultaneously brought my entire generation into puberty. Thanks to ChaseByKO for digging this up.
ED, EDD N’ EDDY
I wasn’t paying all that much attention to Edx3 when it originally aired, but I gotta hand it to the writers for their accurate portrayal of puerile preteens. Here’s the “Snow Job” clip:
But it doesn’t end there! Look closely in this frame and you’ll see a parental note asking the Eds, please “Don’t Touch Yourself”
And for good reason. Apparently, there’s a history of masturbation here. At least judging by the skin mags and crumpled jizz tissues under Edd’s bed:
What a jerk!
Did you hear Tyler mentiona a bizarre, internal Rugrats storyboard featuring all sorts of delicious evil? Thankfully, MonocledYaoGuai managed to track it down! That Klasky Csupo letterhead makes it look pretty legit to me

A lot of folks suggested that Spongebob is riddled with light naughtiness that easily jetisons over the heads of tots, and as a fan of the show, I know they are not wrong. Unfortunately, Nickelodeon is so goddamned litigious with video uploads and embeds I couldn’t find one to rip and/or post. This promo, however, made me giggle with phallic delight!
Please enjoy this Dick Tower from Chowder, a show I’ve seen less than once!
THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER TO THE RESCUE
We played this on the show, but this “money shot sequence” from Disney’s seemingly SFW direct-to-video sequel has to bee seen to be believed:
Here’s a hidden cock and balls from a classic Ralph Wolf WB cartoon! (The More You Know: Ralph Wolf looks exactly like Wile E. Coyote, but talks, has a red nose and generally combats a sheepdog.)
And just because I’m pissed that the audio got cut off on the show, here’s Porky Pig saying “Son of a Bitch.” Yes, that’s Mel Blanc and it’s very real, evidently produced specifically for annual Warner Bros. company gag reel which was never meant to be seen by the public. What, you think Pixar invented animated bloopers?!
TINY TOON ADVENTURES
If you didn’t think we were serious about a banned episode featuring Buster, Plucky and Hamton getting hammered, here’s “One Beer” in its entirety. SPOILER: They get drunk and die!
POPEYE – “Shuteye Popeye”
Just in case you thought we were full of shit, feel free to watch this clip of the hidden swear in this ancient Popeye cartoon.
Gorgeous animation, fantastic music from a 35 piece orchestra, valiantly carrying on the madcap spirit of old Looney Tunes, genuinely funny parodies and writing – Animaniacs is amazing and holds up for many, many reasons. But for our purposes, I love how much dirty shit they managed to get away with on daytime television. HINT: When Yakko says “Goodnight Everybody!” someone’s just referenced poop, wieners, butts, sex, or tits!
THE REGULAR SHOW
I’m not terribly familiar with The Regular Show, but I did find this clip/GIF which more than meets our criteria.
Did you catch that? This is so over-the-line, part of me needs to believe it’s Photoshopped…
SAM & MAX
Here’s one we missed from the forgotten Sam & Max cartoon show. This Christmas episode contains not one, but TWO, prison rape jokes! Thanks to Doctor Treyn for bringing this to our attention.
According to legend, this Dexter’s Lab Dial M for Monkey/Justice Friends segment was removed from all subsequent broadcasts due to an outrageously “femmy” parody of Silver Surfer. If the audio on the show didn’t convince you, the video should prove some truth to the rumor. Or at least shed some insight on Silver Spooner’s orientation…
I intentionally excluded Japanese Animation from Laser Time’s Adult Jokes in Kids Cartoons episode because A) cultural differences mean different shit flies over there, and B) the Japanese have always showed more respect to animation, historically treating it like an “Everyone Medium” a la old theatrical shorts and not exclusively for children and Christians. However, when codystovall pointed out that DBZ contains an appearance by none other that HITLER, I absolutely had to see it and you should to. Thanks, cody!
ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE
I loved this show, but I really had no idea how much naughty they snuck in unbeknownst to kids, and more importantly, Nickelodeon. Of course, Ren & Stimpy made everything seem tame, which probably distracted the censors from all the filth going into the program. Here’s the “Phone Sex” clip we played:
But it doesn’t end there! Please enjoy Rocko references to Felching!
And a getting your dick sucked! Heffer gets hooked up to a milking machine. Being a male, he basically ejaculates in full view of all the boys a girls…
Last but not least, RACISM! MonocledYaoGuai managed to find this allegedly banned clip featuring a heavily stereotyped “So Solly!” chinaman!
As for your other suggestions, a lot of people suggested Invader Zim and Ren & Stimpy. But hey, they weren’t really “hiding” anything…
