* ''WesternAnimation/TheChipmunkAdventure'' contains a musical number by The Chipettes called "Get Lucky". It is likely about asking someone on a date instead of being an IntercourseWithYou song.

* Given that Mr. Krabs of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''' entire manner of speech is intentionally archaic, this trope's pretty in-line with his character. The episode "The Lost Mattress" has Mr. Krabs use "queer" in its "strange, unusual" meaning. The episode "The Krusty Sponge" has Mr. Krabs refer to a little boy as a girl. "Girl" once used to mean a little kid, regardless of gender.
* Similarly to the above Virginia Woolf example, [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Optimus Prime]] once expressed amazement at [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Prime_Target "a booby trap that actually catches boobies"]].

* Several old ''WesternAnimation/{{Tom and Jerry}}'' shorts have "Puss" or "Pussy" in the title. In one, Spike the bulldog threatened Tom with "I'll poke you in the puss!"
** Puss has always meant face though. [=PussY=] on the other hand...
* A 1960 WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker short is titled ''Billion Dollar Boner'' ("boner" being outdated slang for a screwup or a mistake).

* Speaking of the changing meaning of 'making love', a ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' song ("Who Is He Kissing?") featured the line "who is he kissing/is it me?/or is he making love to a fantasy?" This is a series from TheEighties though so it could be argued it's a case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, though the series makes it as clear as it can Rio and Jem have only kissed.

* Similar to the [=SpongeBob=] example, one of the lyrics in the song "What's This?" from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' has ''"In here, they've got a little tree! How queer!"''



* In ''Disney/{{Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs}}'', Doc, who's prone to {{Spoonerism}}s, asks "What are you and who are you doing?" It was meant to just be a nonsense phrase, but now it sounds like he's asking Snow White who she has sex with.



* The refrain from one of the songs in ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'' is "We're three caballeros, three ''gay'' caballeros!"

** "Boobs in the Woods" (1948)
** "Easter Yeggs" had Bugs encountering a weeping Easter Bunny who explains to him that his job delivering Easter eggs has made his feet sore and thus is unable to continue the job unless another rabbit does it for him (unbeknown to him, the Easter Bunny tricks other rabbits by guilt tripping them to doing the job for him while he doesn't have to do anything). During his sob story, he briefly mentions himself being "happy and gay" before hurting his feet. This can be taken both ways.

** Played for laughs with Mr. Burns (who, according to the show's ever-shifting canon, came of age sometime between the turn of the twentieth century and the RoaringTwenties) is apparently completely unaware of the latter-day definition of the word "gay". On one occasion, on a shock-jock radio show, he recalls his father taking him to a picnic when he was a child, saying "That certainly was a gay experience. I ate my share of wieners that day!"
