27 TV And Movie Jokes That Went Straight Over Your Head As A Kid, Ranked From "Mildly Off-Color" To "Surprisingly Risqué"
"And my personal favorite, Lonely Space Vixens. That's for when you go to bed."
There's a long and noble tradition of TV shows and movies meant for children sneaking in the occasional adult joke. And while some of them are just a little out there, others make me wonder, "How the hell did they get away with this?"
I've ranked these 27 jokes from kid's TV shows and movies by how surprising it is that they survived long enough to make it to air.
Just so you know, when I say "censor," I mean a combination of studio executives, the Standards & Practices department, lawyers, and anyone else who has the power to say, "Hey, let's maybe not include a circumcision joke in The Rugrats Movie."
As you'll see toward the end of this ranking, they lost that particular fight.
