** The episode "Aye Aye Eyes" has a creepy-eyed girl coax Dexter into becoming her boyfriend, much to Dexter's chagrin. The (not) FallingInLoveMontage song features the lyrics "Your eyes are the kind that make me feel gay". Considering it's a psychedelic 60s-styles song, it sounds appropriate. But seeing as how much Dexter really doesn't return the girl's affection, it could be a radar-evading DoubleEntendre.

** In cartoons where Bugs Bunny usually says "What a maroon!" in reference to hapless antagonists such as Elmer Fudd, we think of "maroon" as Bugs's Brooklyn-ese mispronunciation of "moron", or as a verb, to strand on a deserted island. It turns out that there is an obscure historical definition of "maroon": [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maroon_(people) African-American settlers who escaped from slavery and probably settled with the indigenous natives]], which nowadays might cause viewers to wonder if Bugs was aware that he wasn't just insulting Elmer's intelligence when he called him a "maroon"...

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'' short ''WesternAnimation/TheMadDoctor'', the titular MadScientist is named Dr. XXX. The cartoon predates the first use of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_rating X classification rating]] for pornographic films by about 35 years.

Again, can be taken both ways.

Then too, the Getting Gay With Kids choir's original theme is indeed as "[[TotallyRadical totally gay]]" as it claims to be. (Their [[DarkerAndEdgier revised theme]] at the end, however, wasn't so gay in ''any'' sense of the word.)
