->''"The thing about childhood is that nothing makes sense. You have no idea what half the jokes on sitcoms are about, WesternAnimation/BugsBunny keeps [[WartimeCartoon making references]] to [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII WWII]]-era European dictators you don't recognize, and HotWheels always manage to go around the loop-the-loop just fine on the commercials. So you just relax and go along with it, and fifteen years later you look back on the things that confused you and say 'Ah! Yes! It makes perfect sense now!'"''

* One ''WesternAnimation/{{TheSmurfs}}'' episode revolves Jokey finding the ultimate joke. Anyone who hears it will laugh uncontrollably and never be able to stop. Jokey alone is immune because he doesn't get it. After a long, arduous journey to cure the laughing Smurfs, the band returns to the village... only for Jokey to burst out laughing, having finally got the joke.
* The Looney Tunes character Foghorn Leghorn was based on a radio character Sen Claghorne (who was so Southern he only drank from Dixie cups and would not drive through the Lincoln Tunnel). He also copied his signature response to people who didn't get his jokes "Ah say, ah say son, these are the jokes. I keep pitching them and you keep missing them!"

Sometimes it takes a long time for a character to get a joke. Missed in-jokes and ParentalBonus can mean someone gets the joke much later. Or perhaps the character is just slow of mind. At the time the character [[NoSenseOfHumor may not even realize it was a joke.]]
