* Similarly ''WesternAnimation/SwampThing''; both were kid-washed animated versions of violent comics. The latter succeeded only as a toyline, since only five episodes were made. ''Toxic Crusaders'', of ''Film/TheToxicAvenger'' fame, got a slightly better deal with 13 episodes.

** Ooze in general became an emblem of {{Nickelodeon}}, and the "main" form for their logo was a splat.

Various cartoons and toy lines, especially in the late 1980s and early 1990s, used repulsive slimy creatures and ooze to appeal to kids, ''especially'' boys (hence the trope name pun). Keywords were "gross","slime" (or if you're British "gunge") and "ooze".

Toys often focused on some gimmick based around some goopy liquid, and most of these franchises had an obsession with the toxic waste theme. That meant lots of villains, and sometimes heroes, based on mutant abilities, bizarre chimeras, and distorted bodies.
