#10: 50 Bucks Extra
After firing Dee Dee, Dexter decides to hire a new spastic sister to fill the void in his lab. He ultimately goes with a woman who possesses curves in all the right places. Prancing around in a ballerina outfit, she presses all of Dexter’s buttons. When Dexter asks her to dance a little, though, she notes that it will cost him an additional fee. It’s safe to say this woman previously worked as an exotic dancer, a porn star, or something else in the lovin' for hire industry. She might want to be a famous actress, but sadly there's no role for her permanently on “Dexter’s Lab.”
“Dexter’s Laboratory” (1996-2003)
#9: Private Parts
There comes a time in a young boy’s life when he starts to notice girls. In this episode of “Rugrats,” one-year-old Tommy first realizes how male and female reproductive organs differ. As the babies shed their clothing, Tommy can’t help but notice that Lil is missing something below the waist. We never hear Tommy’s question or Lil’s response, but we adults can imagine how their conversation went down. As confusing as this is for Tommy, he’ll find there’s even more that separates boys from girls when puberty rolls around. Ah, youth…
#8: Dirty Magazines
Aside from laughing about sextants, Ed, Edd, and Eddy have never explicitly discussed the birds and the bees out loud. It’s obvious that the subject is constantly on their minds, though. This is most notably evidenced in an episode where the three seek refuge under Eddy’s bed. Just as many other growing boys do, Eddy hoards a collection of magazines like “Jiggy Jiggy” and “Chix.” As if those naughty titles aren’t blatant enough, Eddy also keeps a box of tissues close by. Hopefully the boys don’t stay under there for too long because it doesn’t look like Eddy has enough Kleenex to go around.
“Ed, Edd n Eddy” (1999-2009)
#7: This Is Caca
We know the main reason why teenagers go to drive-in movies. Naïve kids and these two stupid dogs are none the wiser, however. Big Dog and Little Dog can’t quite figure out what the fuss is all about, but the various automobiles shaking back and forth provide a clear indication. The canines give a couple a terrible case of coitus interruptus by blowing up their car... but it isn’t long until the ol' rock and rollin' resumes. There’s zero doubt that quite a few people were getting lucky that night but our heroes will never know about it.
“2 Stupid Dogs” (1993-95)
#6: Try My Sausage
Some sexual innuendos beat the audience over their heads. Others are hidden in the background and are easy to miss. To catch this innuendo from “Hey Arnold,” you probably had to pause your TV. While attending an eating contest, Arnold is surrounded by numerous delectable foods to munch on, including sausage. You see the poster hanging on that fence over there? Read what it says out loud and tell us if it sounds suggestive in the slightest. You could argue that this is just an innocent advertisement for pork products, but we all know what the animators were really trying to get away with.
“Hey Arnold!” (1996-2003)
#5: Premature Departure
On a road trip, Rocko and Heffer decide to stay at the No Tell Motel for the night. What they don’t realize is that nobody checks into this motel to sleep. Although the clerk says they’re all booked up, the best friends score a room after a premature departure. Believe it or not, that’s not even the most jaw-dropping part about this scene. After learning that the two travelers want the room until the next day, he looks at them in total disbelief. And that’s where cartoon babies come from, kids.
“Rocko’s Modern Life” (1993-96)
“Animaniacs” made a ton of subtle sexual references that none of us got as kids. Heck, the writers managed to sneak multiple innuendos into this one scene alone. Although “conjugating” sounds like a dirty word, it actually means to give the different forms of a verb. That doesn’t stop Yakko from twisting the word’s meaning into something entirely different, though. As Miss Flamiel attempts to teach the Warners grammar, the audience gets a lesson in sexual education. Yakko seems just as amazed as anyone that the censors didn’t cancel them right then and there.
#3: I Like Meat Too Much
Seeing as how “Freakazoid” came from the same team as “Animaniacs,” it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it too pushed the envelope for children’s programming. Perhaps the most sexually explicit moment in the show occurs as our titular hero asks best friend Mike Cosgrove why he never married. Apparently it’s because the police sergeant loves meat more than he could ever love a woman. There are a couple of different ways one could interpret this comment, many of which imply Cosgrove is down for the savory taste of warm greasy sausage.
#2: Rev Up Your Harley
Harley Quinn’s hopeless devotion and attraction to the Joker is beyond disturbing, especially for a show aimed at kids. What really gets under our skin, however, is the thought of her tickling his funny bone. If Harley trying to seduce her puddin’ in a pool of pudding doesn’t confirm their sexual relationship, this moment certainly does. Wearing an outfit that leaves little to the imagination, she attempts to get the Clown Prince of Crime to rev up his Harley. The Joker is in such a sour mood, however, that not even the whoopee cushion can cheer him up.
“The New Batman Adventures” (1997-99)
Before we get to our top pick, here is an honorable mention:
Your Genius Is Showing
“SpongeBob SquarePants” (1999-)
#1: Pencil Sharpener
For a show that looked like sugar, spice, and everything nice, “The Powerpuff Girls” sure did work in a lot of racy jokes. Did you ever notice when Buttercup slipped condoms into Professor Utonium’s pocket? How about the time the girls tried to determine the gender of a nutty squirrel? Even those risqué moments can’t compete with this scene, though, as the attractive Ms. Bellum causes the Mayor to break his pencil. In what might be the most salacious image in the entire series, the secretary takes her boss’ hand and whips out the pencil sharpener. The expression on the Mayor’s face says speaks volumes.
“The Powerpuff Girls” (1998-2005)
