* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'': In "Bleep", DW hears a bad word and wants to know what it means. (She doesn't know at all that it's a bad word.) She accidentally gets her entire preschool class saying it. The Tibble twins tell her it's a hypnosis word, and saying it will make adults follow their orders. Her mother finally tells her that it means that someone wants to hurt your feelings. We're never actually told what the word is.

* Seen in a story from the ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'' television series. The word in question? [[GoshDangItToHeck "Stupid"]]. Done using the same word on ''WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}'' as well. The moral of the ''Franklin'' story was that the words you use say a lot about you, and [[TropesAreNotBad it actually works fairly well]] if you can get past your knee-jerk reaction to the idea of "stupid" as a swear word. (It's credible too, since the writing on the show is monitored carefully for the language they use, and normally they ''don't'' use "stupid").

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}'' did this with the word "stupid", which Caillou learns when he learns how to ride a skateboard from an older boy. After doing so, he uses the word at Clementine when she says he didn't actually skateboard by himself, which makes her upset. Caillou doesn't know why the word is bad until his mom gets a call from Clementine saying that it hurt her feelings.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' episode "Potty Mouth", the siblings get scared that they accidentally taught their one year old sister how to say "damn it". It turns out Lily is instead mispronouncing "donut", though she does curse at the end of the episode. Interestingly, most of the siblings (the youngest is ''five'') are all shown cursing without it being depicted as this. They all know exactly how to use the word.

->'''Mrs. Read''' Well, you're off the hook this time because you didn't know what you were saying. But I hope you know now that swear words are not appropiate things to say, especially for three and four year old children. \\
