14 Times "Shrek" Really Pushed The Envelope On Being PG

Spoiler: Robin Hood was skeezier than you thought.

1. First, there's the beginning of the movie, when Shrek very obviously implies that fairy tales are a load of shit...


As Shrek reads a fairy tale during the opening shot, he rips off a page from the book and presumably uses it as toilet paper while saying, "Like that’s ever going to happen. What a load of...”

2. The part when Shrek and Donkey discuss Lord Farquaad's physical endowment...


If you first watched Shrek as a kid, you probably definitely didn't understand this line when Shrek and Donkey were making fun of Lord Farquaad and his overly huge castle and asked each other, "Do you think maybe he’s compensating for something?"


4. When Robin Hood lets it slip about his true intentions for rescuing damsels in distress...


"I like an honest fight and a saucy little maid," he sings in maybe the most epic cartoon French accent. The Merry Men then fill in the next line: "What he's basically saying is he likes to get...paid." Except, ya know, they really mean **laid**.


14. And finally, when a group of students roll up in the medieval equivalent of a Volkswagen bus.


And they open the door to let out some smoke, and you overhear someone saying, "Hey, bro, don't burn all my frankincense and myrrh." Classic.
