* ''There must be '''Crap''''': It must be something that a reasonable person would expect to be censored by said {{Media Watchdog}}s. ParentalBonus, HoYay and LesYay do not count.

** And in ANOTHER example of this trope and 2nd Ed ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', pretty much ''every Planescape supplement ever written falls under this to greater or lesser extent''...seeing as the term "Berk" was used in this setting as "Chummer" was in ''Shadowrun'' and quite gratuitously at that. The problem is that...well...[[note]]There is an Urban Legend that "Berk" is short for "Berkley Hunt"...which rhymes with...oh, a certain four-letter expletive referring to, well, CountryMatters [[/note]] and was primarily released in a country in which, because of the false association with a certain other word, the term "Berk" is a ''far'' stronger expletive than in its native Britain (where it usually tends to be used in the context of being a complete dumbass).

* One of the early Harry Potter movie tie-in toys was a Nimbus 2000 replica aimed at children in the 8-12 age bracket. This battery-operated gizmo had sound effects and vibration. Somehow, nobody seems to have noticed what they were making until after it was already on store shelves.
* The Series/HannahMontana dolls they seem perfectly harmless until you discover where you press the button for them to sing.
* ''MyLittlePony'' once had a pony named "Pillow Talk." And currently has a pegasus named "White Lightning."
* ''EverAfterHigh'' has Cerise Hood, daughter of Red Riding Hood [[FridgeHorror and]] '''[[{{Squick}} The Big Bad Wolf.]]''' [[FlatWhat WHAT]].
* In 1971, Creator/{{Mattel}} introduced a Hot Wheels car called the "Strip Teaser."

** The Revelation to John is considered by many scholars to be a disguised warning against Rome. Since it was to be read by a Roman audience, it had to get past Rome's censors, so it couched its accusations in crazy imagery. For instance, the Beast was said to have 7 heads, and a later passage said "The seven heads are seven hills" (referring most likely to the seven hills of Rome).

Getting Crap Past the Radar refers to instances when a writer, artist or other creator puts inappropriate content into their material that would be shocking not only to the {{Media Watchdog}}s and MoralGuardians, but to everyone else, sneaking it past the censors by using implication or allusion rather than stating it straight out. Often, what makes it shocking is not the specific content, but that it is out of keeping with its context. Most examples are found in materials aimed at children or shows alleging to be family-friendly. The way these examples are used in such media directed towards children of family is mostly through disguising the inappropriate material as something more appropriate so it could visibly slip through the eyes of sensitive viewers And there are times when creators will do this even when they don't have to, simply because [[RuleOfFunny it's funnier than being blatantly vulgar]].

* Topps' "Wacky Packages" stickers were aimed at child consumers and had strict limits on the kinds of humor that could be included (there wasn't so much as a ''[[ToiletHumor fart joke]]'' in any of the sticker series). However, the artist managed to sneak a rather ... [[FreudWasRight suggestive image]] onto the lower-middle of [[http://www.wackypackages.org/stickers/12th_series/robotburns_small.html this sticker]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/DarkDungeons'': Marcie is implied to be a closeted lesbian and attracted to Debbie. At some point, Debbie points out that the alternative to going to the RPG party was "spending all Saturday alone together in their dorm room" and asks "how much fun [they] could have doing that". Marcie clearly thinks for a few seconds before answering... She also gets into the occult scene when Debbie says some of their rituals are performed while "sky clad" (naked). Marcia is clearly attracted to the idea of seeing Debbie in the nude (as fundamentalist Christians, presumably they don't change in front of each other). Then there is the clear subtext while Debbie comments on just how good Marcie's hands must be for "doing things".
** In ''Attacking the Darkness'', it's made clear this was done intentionally in the fictional account of the movie's making.
