Top 10 Sexual Innuendos in Kids Animated Series

Turns out our childhoods weren’t as wholesome as we thought. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 Sexual Innuendos in Kids’ Animated Series.

For this list, we’re taking a look at adult references that got by the censors in cartoons and animated TV series that are primarily targeted towards kids.

#10: Farrah Fawcett Blindfolded
“Johnny Bravo” (1997-2004)

Johnny Bravo has one thing constantly on his mind: getting with the ladies. In this episode, he sets his eyes on actress Farrah Fawcett. With the real Fawcett lending her own voice, she plays a game of pin the tail on the donkey at a birthday party. At first, Farrah can’t remember the last time she was blindfolded, but then she has a rather revealing recollection. The kids might not know what Farrah is giggly about, but Johnny likely would. Sadly, our macho protagonist never gets to pin the tail on this Charlie’s Angel.

#9: Can’t Get a Date
“Justice League” (2001-04)

The DC animated universe has been hailed for its sophistication and treating its audience like adults. It isn’t surprising then that the grown up themes of “Justice League” would extend to the occasional innuendo. This exchange between Hawkgirl and the Flash is perhaps the show’s most obvious sexual overtone. As everyone’s favorite speedster showboats about being the fastest man alive, Hawkgirl notes that his super power may also be his greatest weakness. We expect to hear such suggestive one-liners on the CW or in a Zack Snyder picture, but not here.

#8: An Accident
“The Powerpuff Girls” (1998-2005)

Professor Utonium may have made the Powerpuff Girls in a laboratory, but all the other parents of Townsville made their children the old fashion way. That doesn’t mean every conception was planned, though. As the girls introduce their new neighbor to their father, Robin notes that her birth was every bit as accidental as Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup’s. The Professor’s mortified expression corresponds with the reaction of any adults watching this seemingly wholesome cartoon with their kids. An awkward conversation about using birth control will most likely ensue at home.

#7: Tier Fifteen
“Adventure Time” (2010-)

Unlike some animated shows where kids remain in a permanent state of youth, Finn the Human has aged over the seasons of “Adventure Time.” After getting a smoking hot girlfriend, Finn is mature enough to learn about the tiers of dating from his more experienced bro. Jake fills Finn in on hugging and smooching. Since Finn is still becoming a man, however, Jake orders him to stay away from the fifteenth and final tier. Let’s just say Finn will need more protection than tin foil when he reaches that level.

#6: Lonely Space Vixens
“Rugrats” (1991-2004)

“Rugrats” is largely about viewing the world from a baby’s perspective and not entirely understanding the world around us. Because of this, it’s only natural that the Nickelodeon series would work in a few references solely intended for big people. This is the show’s most evident wink to older audiences as Grandpa Lou notes that he’s rented a clearly adult film for after Tommy and Chuckie’s bedtime. Yep, Grandpa has a thing for sexy, green women. Assuming he’s still alive, Lou Pickles would probably be interested in playing “Mass Effect.”

#5: In the Closet
“The Ren & Stimpy Show” (1991-95)

We might have missed it as kids, but there’s little doubt that Ren and Stimpy were closeted homosexuals in retrospect - not there’s anything wrong with that. If you need irrefutable evidence, this scene says it all as Stimpy plays with his new friend, Sven. Getting close in a litter box, Stimpy shuts the closet door so he and Sven can have some private playtime. Although we don’t see what happens, their risqué descriptions of juggling and sword swallowing really challenge what you can get away with on a cartoon show.

#4: Don’t Drop the Soap
“SpongeBob SquarePants” (1999-)

While SpongeBob SquarePants may be the least erotically stimulating being on the planet, even he has a sexual side. His need for physical relief is alluded to in one episode where he appears to be watching hardcore sea porn. If you think that’s naughty, get a load of this scene where SpongeBob actually makes a ‘dropping the soap’ joke. Apparently, the prisons in Bikini Bottom are no safer than the ones up on the surface world. Now we’re just waiting for the show to make a sponge worthy joke.

#3: One-On-One Hotline
“Rocko’s Modern Life” (1993-96)

Now we’re really starting to get into obscene territory. In desperate need of a new job, Rocko seeks out work as a specialty phone operator. His crass language on the phone and the randy posters in the background, though, clarify that this position is much kinkier than the want ad entailed. If that’s not uncomfortable enough, it turns out the woman on the other line is Rocko’s next-door neighbor, Mrs. Bighead. Awkward! We always suspected that Mr. Bighead wasn’t keeping his lady satisfied, even with that elongated tongue of his.

#2: Carpet Munchers
“Cow and Chicken” (1997-99)

This controversial episode of “Cow and Chicken” is jam-packed with so many explicit innuendos that Cartoon Network actually banned it after one airing. The story centers on our title characters crossing paths with a motorcycle gang known as the Buffalo Gals. Their short hair, deep voices, and all around masculine appearance undoubtedly imply that the Buffalo Gals are stereotypical lesbians. As if that’s not already blatant, the bikers actually pop into random homes and chew on their carpets. Well at least they didn’t chew on the drapes.

Before we crack up at our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Elegant Balls
“Regular Show” (2010-)
- Sat on the Banana
“The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” (2002-06)
- Another Head
“The Flintstones” (1960-66)
- You Make My Girlhood Tremble
“Hey Arnold!” (1996-2004)

#1: Finger Prince
“Animaniacs” (1993-98)

Although “Animaniacs” was primarily marketed to children, its pop culture references, social satire, and elusive innuendos made it just as much fun for adults. The writers got away with a ton of dirty jokes over the years, the standout undeniably being this infamous instance that had kids scratching their heads and adults dropping their jaws. Studying a crime scene, Yakko asks Dot to unearth fingerprints. She instead returns with a certain musician. As for what follows, well… just listen and you’ll understand why this is our number one pick. Goodnight, everybody!
