** Even nudity wouldn't necessarily bar a movie from a G rating in the early years. The 1973 version of ''Tom Sawyer'' has a scene in which Tom and Huck go skinny-dipping, and their rears are briefly visible as they dive under the water.

** Creator/BlueSkyStudios actually deserves credit for '''averting''' this trope. They were specifically aiming for G's, not only on both ''Rio'' films, but also on ''WesternAnimation/HortonHearsAWho'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie''. Except for ''Rio'' at first, as well as ''WesternAnimation/{{Epic}}'', they've been successful at earning G ratings without their box office performances being threatened.
** Played straight(er) with their CashCowFranchise ''WesternAnimation/IceAge''. The first one was a comedy with lighthearted moments, but some dark and intense ones to balance it out. Many of the scary moments in the film would justify the PG rating it got. The second film ''was'' initially rated G, but was appealed and got a PG for mild language and ''innuendo'', a rather unusual move for a kids' movie. By the time the next three films came out, PG became the default and all the other films were rated as such.
