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. 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]].

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]].



* ''The Crap must '''get past''' the Radar'': The inclusion of the content must be intentional, and the creators of the work must be aware that it ought to be censored. There should be a deliberate effort to slip it past the {{Media Watchdog}}s. AccidentalInnuendo does not count.

If the works actually lampshade the material in media itself then it also does not count.
