* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]].

** Same for the books as stated by parents whom some are concerned (sometimes shocked) about its wording or thought that it decreases the story's innocent atmosphere.
** Then there's the running gag of Trike getting pooped on by a bird every time he says TheScottishTrope.
** And also in one episode, [[ItMakesSenseInContext a large truck of]] ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext dino poo]]''... a much more literal example.
