No "Little Mermaid" box cover?

Also, some of those were ... pretty obvious, even as a child. Especially the Ren & Stimpy one.

There should be way more examples coming out of Animaniacs.

I remember a Jetsons episode where George thought Judy was eloping w/a musician. He ran to a Vegas-style chapel to see if she was there and was told the chapel was all booked due to a group of Jupiterian polygamists.

The raunchiest one I remember is from the Flintstones. Fred & Barney go costume shopping and Fred suggests Barney try on a costume head. Barney's response was something like, "I don't need another head. I've already got 2"

I guess it's a good thing I've had those scenes from that episode firmly implanted in my head since I was 10 or whatever. I think that and the Chokey Chicken restaurant were my first inklings that perhaps Rocko was more than just another kid's show.

I think the oldest cartoon they have there is Ren and Stimpy (which came out when I was 22)



I'm a bit surprised nothing from Invader Zim wasn't listed (although rarely scatological much of the humor was, quite frankly nihilistic and really not appropriate for kids below a certain age)
 
2012-09-29 02:04:58 AM
My favorite is a Spongebob/BlazingSaddles/Ilikerape one

n 20,000 Patties Under The Sea:
SpongeBob: BYE SQUIDWARD! BYE MR. KRABS! (seductively) Bye, Squidward.
Patrick: Hey, you said 'Bye, Squidward' twice!
SpongeBob (remaining somewhat seductive): I like Squidward.
 
2012-09-29 02:06:30 AM
None of those were really kid's cartoons. Throw in some sex jokes from Bob the Builder and Dora the Explorer and you might have something.

I dated a chick in college who wore a Spongebob thong... it was officially licensed merchandise.

There's another Animaniacs one that sticks out: Some teacherly lady is lecturing Yakko about verbs, and says, "Now let's conjugate together," and Yakko turns to face the audience and says, "Okay. Good night, everybody!"

I was expecting a lot of Foghorn Leghorn quotes...

She remi - I say, she reminds me of Paul Revere's ride. A little light in the belfry.

Gal reminds me of the highway between Fort Worth and Dallas. No curves.

This is going to cause more confusion than a mouse at a burlesque show.

That boy's so dumb, he thinks a Mexican boarder pays rent.

I got, I say I got this boy as fidgety as a bubble dancer with a slow leak.

Say, boy, you cover about as much as a flapper skirt in a high wind



There were some other good Looney Tunes (or Merry Melodie) ones...

She's about as helpless as a porcupine in a nudist colony.

Ooh, hoo hoo hoo!! I haven't had THIS much fun since the boys got back from Gettysburg!!!

And now your local company will present gas chamber music for - I, I, I, I mean your local gas company will present chamber music for your enjoyment.

Brother. What a Leonardo da Punchy. What a Too-Lousy Lautrec.


There was another I think I remember, something about a nudist colony on an iceberg...

Ugh, I hated Rocko, Ren and Stimpy and the Sponge.... those shows were just gross and not funny all all.

Rugrats were good, a few adult jokes thrown in are for the parents benefit who get stuck listening to kids programming ALL FARKING DAY.

I figure it's insanity insurance. Hard to get kids to watch your stuff if parents keep putting baseball bats through the TV.

You could make a much longer list based on Ren and Stimpy alone. Even as a kid I remember thinking this show wasn't appropriate for children. Rocko was fairly dirty too.

Not so much a joke, but Animaniacs flat out referenced Heidi Fleiss in one of their songs.
 
2012-09-29 02:55:34 AM
I don't think that Ren & Stimpy example was from the 90s cartoon on Nick, but from the awful adult cartoon that John K. made years later. Also, a lot of these are kind of a reach. Legs from Toy Story is a hooker? Really?

nitpick, etc.
 
2012-09-29 02:58:35 AM
cartoons you loved as a child ... yeah, that list covers you gen y or whatever the hell you are, but in my day... nevermind.
One thing many do not know, or have not thought about. You 40's-60's farkers will get this little joke.
In the Grinch film, everyone is putting their keys into a fishbowl. That was called a key party- girls grab keys and go home with the man that owned the keys.

My mom wouldn't let me and my sister watch R&S. We were nine and eight at the time. But we loved Animaniacs; apparently it "got crap past the radar" much easier by pretending to be clean.
 
2012-09-29 03:22:31 AM
Like the entire character of Pepe Le Pew?
And that Bugs Bunny seemed to like dressing up as a woman way too much?
Or that Yosemite Sam and Elmer Fudd were impotent even with all their guns?
Sniffles was just Speedy Gonzalez after he came down from his cocaine high.
The Three Bears family showed that spousal abuse can be funny if your child is retarded.

Pretty much. Adults will chuckle at subtle adult humor, Ren and Stimpy and Rocko didn't do subtle humor, they just blasted it straight in everyone's face. Also, Animaniacs was fairly educational, although I think my mother was going to duct tape me and throw me in the closet if I ever sang the 'Countries of the World!' song again.

I remember a scene from "The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog" where a bad guy was in some sort of trance and to get him out of it another bad guy threw a pail of water on him, when he awoke he said "Hey! Why am I all wet?" to which the other robot said "I don't know perhaps it was a dream?"

Watching old clips of this show, it's pretty subversive...

I remember an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures (if you've never seen it, don't knock it. It was NOT what I expected and it was pretty much a practice run for Animaniacs) where they sang the "Name Game."
They get to the point where everybody shouts "Plucky!"
the music stops abruptly, Buster breaks the fourth wall saying, "I don't think so."
Everybody shouts, "Hampton!" and they continue the song.
 
2012-09-29 08:44:16 AM
Saw someone mention "Rocky & Bullwinkle" -- one of my all-time favorites was when they were doing a version of "Four-and-Twenty Blackbirds" and Boris was playing the King. After putting the pie down in front of him, Bullwinkle looks straight into the camera and says, "I always wanted to give that guy the bird."

Even as a kid, I remember knowing what that meant and fell off the couch laughing. That show was brilliant on so many levels.

They weren't.

The animated shorts were no different than the Three Stooges shorts... they were part of the theater package deal. You got a news short, an animated or Stooge-like live action short, and the feature film.

My favorite not included in the list:

From Batman: The Animated Series. I forget what episode it was, but Harley Quin was in disguise posing as a lawyer n jail, and was being escorted through the jail by Officer Bullock. As she's leaving, Bullock rubs his chin and says that she seems kind of familiar.

She shrugs it off and says that she served him a subpoena once. Then she takes a few steps, turns back and says, "it was a very small subpoena" before she walks off with a smirk.

The one I caught as a kid in Animaniacs.

Dr. Scratchansniff: Stop playing with my bust!
Yakko (aside glance): Mmm-wah! Goodnight, everybody!

Ed Grubermann: Snapper Carr: I think the oldest cartoon they have there is Ren and Stimpy (which came out when I was 22)

And that scene was from the horrid Spike TV season that played late at night. John K without externally imposed limits is an unfunny hack.


That explains why I that bit was unfamiliar (I was in the hospital doped up on pain meds for the 2 months the show aired. If I was exposed to any part of it, I was oblivious)

Also...

Good night everybody

Found Rocko's Modern Life in the "Just for Kids" section of Netflix. Suck-O-Matic episode. Something like two minutes in, they made a JFK assassination joke. I miss this show.

*sigh*
 
2012-09-29 11:19:10 AM
Much to my daughter's displeasure, I would not let her watch Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life. She was about 8 or 9 at the time.

When she was about 16, she watched some reruns and said "I see now why you wouldn't let me watch them. I wouldn't have let me watch them either."

//We loved Animaniacs and Tiny Toons. Still do

It's from the "Tomacco" episode (Homer developes a hybrid tomato/tobacco plant).

Makh: There should be way more examples coming out of Animaniacs.


Minverva Mink and Wally Wolf come to mind. Her segments were so raunchy, they almost never aired.

Mister Peejay: Gwendolyn: 3. Dot looking for finger prints in "Animaniacs:"

I'm not getting that one.

From vague memory:

Yakko: "We need to look for prints!"

Dot: (holds up Prince, the musician) "Found him."

Yakko: "No, *FINGER* prints!"

Dot: (looks uneasily at Prince)


"I don't think so!"
Tosses him to one side.

I remember there was an episode with a suit named "Reef Blunt."

And the Tiny Toons episode where they were doing the name song, "Plucky Ducky, fee fi fo--"

ongbok: I was expecting to see the Flintstones, Popeye and some of the older cartoons. Those cartoons had some down right raunchy stuff.


The Flintstones was an adult cartoon that aired at 8:30pm.

alienated: cartoons you loved as a child ... yeah, that list covers you gen y or whatever the hell you are, but in my day... nevermind.
One thing many do not know, or have not thought about. You 40's-60's farkers will get this little joke.
In the Grinch film, everyone is putting their keys into a fishbowl. That was called a key party- girls grab keys and go home with the man that owned the keys.
Heh



I remember a Love: American Style episode that did the same thing... only a couple took someone's car. Might not have been able to pull off your joke on tv back then.

(TV Tropes^)

I used to watch "Animaniacs" with my son when he was younger and even then I was surprised at how many adult-oriented references the show made.

However, the Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons did the same thing in my youth.


I work with a women who is from Bulgaria and everytime she speaks, and no matter what she says, all I can hear her saying is "Moose and squirrel."

I know I'm probably missing the blatantly obvious

master_of_rayality: Saw someone mention "Rocky & Bullwinkle" -- one of my all-time favorites was when they were doing a version of "Four-and-Twenty Blackbirds" and Boris was playing the King. After putting the pie down in front of him, Bullwinkle looks straight into the camera and says, "I always wanted to give that guy the bird."

Even as a kid, I remember knowing what that meant and fell off the couch laughing. That show was brilliant on so many levels.


Yes it was. Rocky and Bullwinkle was pure genius.

My 3 year old specifically asks for Moose and Squirrel when it's movie time. Heck, it's in the DVD player right now.
 
2012-09-29 03:40:41 PM
Not a cartoon, but this exchange from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie went over my head as a kid, but made me laugh when I re-watched it a couple years ago:
Raphael: "What, are you claustrophobic?"
Casey Jones: "Hey, I've never even LOOKED at another guy that way..."

I do hate it when people write articles that tell me about something I "loved as a child" and then proceeds to assume I'm currently in my 20s.

As if a 20-something isn't still a child, these days.

It's like these 20-something article writers can't imagine that the world existed before their own childhood, and that anyone over 28 years old wouldn't be on the Internet. And in this particular case, there seems to be some belief that cartoons only recently started slipping in adult humor.

Jeez... Check out the old Popeye cartoons (no, not the crap 80s stuff. I mean the Fleischer stuff from the 30s)- All sorts of racy jokes in those, as well as Popeye muttering curse words under his breath.

Check out the Loony Tunes from the 30s, 40, and 50s. Lots of subversive jokes there, too.

Hell, check out Betty Boop stuff from the 30s. They're filled with innuendo and straight-up sexuality. In her appearance in a Popeye cartoon, she's topless except for a lei (which she also did in one of her own, original toons from the early 30s).

No, kids... Your generation was not the first to experience subversive adult humor in animation aimed at the whole family. Far from it.

And please please PLEASE stop assuming that there's nobody over 30 on the Internet.

The Flintstones was a family show. EVERYTHING in that era was a family show. There was no such thing as "adult" television until the 1970s, I'm pretty sure. The censors made certain that anything that aired could be viewed by anyone in the family without issue.
 
2012-09-29 03:54:55 PM
Anybody remember a show called, "Wait Till Your Father Gets Home"? It aired @ 8:00 PM or so in the late '70's. The opening sequence had cartoon bewbs under a see through nightgown.

Yep, it was that cheap, crappy Hanna-Barbera animation, but I liked the show, nonetheless.

Colour_out_of_Space: I remember an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures (if you've never seen it, don't knock it. It was NOT what I expected and it was pretty much a practice run for Animaniacs) where they sang the "Name Game."
They get to the point where everybody shouts "Plucky!"
the music stops abruptly, Buster breaks the fourth wall saying, "I don't think so."
Everybody shouts, "Hampton!" and they continue the song.


Have I only seen a censored version? I'm thinking of an MTV parody episode, Toon TV, in which Elmyra leads the gang in song in an outer-space setting, and the Plucky joke only appears in the end credits as "Name Inadvertently Omitted in "The Name Game": Plucky"

Up until this moment I would have sworn that I was the only 70s kid who watched that show. I will now be able to live my life knowing that I am not alone...

FirstNationalBastard: They missed Heffer and the milking machine from Rocko.

/Nickelodeon also cut the scene from the DVDs and all current reruns.


I remember that back when I was a kid and it first aired. Couldn't believe they showed something like that on Nickelodean.
 
2012-09-29 10:44:07 PM
An episode of Gravity Falls (a Disney cartoon that premiered this year) has a character, how shall I put this, getting high off banned candy. It's hilarious, but I still can't believe they let that air, in the Disney channel of all places. Then again, the creator does cite The Simpsons as an influence.

TheJoe03: I dunno, us lousy gen y people watched plenty of Loony Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo, Jetsons, Flinstones, etc. Cartoon Network played plenty of old cartoons.


You must mean the versions where they did Black Face, Bugs Bunny fought the Japanese, Donald Duck joined the Nazi Party, Heckle and Jeckle episodes aired and so on?

Because risque and outright racist are the same thing.We were fed a steady diet of racism, homophobia and outright violent insanity on Saturday mornings, sad stuff.

You do know that when Bugs Bunny fought the Japaneses America was at war with Japan, right?

Plus, the Cartoon Network versions were edited so that most of the "offensive" stuff had been removed, Because of parents groups and PC bullshiat.
