These jokes also give the shows rerun value years later when the original viewers are old enough to get the jokes that once went over their heads: see LateToThePunchline. Might be FridgeHorror for some if they think the joke is disturbing and of course FreudWasRight, that supposedly lewd joke might just be AccidentalInnuendo.

* The Classic series of ''Series/DoctorWho'' used so much ParentService that it is still iconic for it, and defined how this trope is used on British television.

** Not to mention they have a song called "The Clap."
*** Sadly, the Wiggles did not actually sing "The Clap." It's a spoof of the Wiggles by a group calling themselves "The Giggles."

A joke on a children's TV show that children of the appropriate age would likely never get, but which their parents would. Serves as a way to keep the adults and older kids entertained and usually takes the form of an {{homage}} to a movie or TV show that children would not normally be familiar with. This is the master trope to other "subliminal" tropes like a DoubleEntendre, DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything, NoCelebritiesWereHarmed, or GettingCrapPastTheRadar. It could also count as a GeniusBonus, since most children would have to be educated above their general age level to understand these.

** The British ''Sesame Street'' spin-off ''The Furchester Hotel'' is literally based on this; how many pre-schoolers have heard of London's exceedingly upmarket Dorchester Hotel? The wild chaos of Monster Tea-Time is also a reference to the Dorchester being known for its very posh afternoon tea.
