** During the first two seasons of ''{{Reboot}}'' (which is actually a Canadian show, but the concept is the same), several jokes were made at the expense of ABC's Broadcast Standards and Practices Department (BS&P). These include a weapon that fires life rafts being labeled "[=BSnP=] Approved", and a [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed thinly-disguised parody]] of the VillagePeople singing a song to the tune of "YMCA" about the BS&P.

** When ''BeavisAndButthead'' did away with Beavis' pyromania-induced CatchPhrase of "Fire! Fire! Fire!" they replaced it with him shouting "Water! Water! Water!" whenever he saw a large body of it as a not-too-subtle jab at the censors. When Senator Fritz Hollings (D- S.C.) tried to cite the pair as a bad influence on kids, but misidentified them as "Beaver and Buffcoat", the animators used it as an in-joke, coming from the mouth of a ''prison inmate''.

** A direct jab at the code was made in a Tweety Bird WartimeCartoon involving two cats, Babbit and Catsello ([[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed transparent pastiches]] of the comedy team AbbottAndCostello). Catsello goes up a ladder to get Tweety, and his partner tells him "Give me the bird!" The exasperated Catsello [[FourthWall makes a comment]]: "If the Hays Office would only let me, I'd give him [[FlippingTheBird the bird]] all right!"

* Say what you will about ''SpongeBobSquarePants'', he's managed to outrage conservatives ''twice''! Once for being gay, despite sponges being asexual. More recently for talking about global warming.

* ''RenAndStimpy'': The creators of Ren and Stimpy did not want to create an "educational" series. This stance bothered Nickelodeon. As the show grew in popularity, parent groups complained that Stimpy was subject to repeated violence from Ren. Other sources for complaint were the toilet humor and harsh language.

* Francine Clara Censordoll (FCC) is probably the only recurring character on ''MoralOrel'' that's all about making vicious attacks on the FCC. First she never procreates, considers her view of morality to be above all others (believing herself to be just as holy as God), is an enormous hypocrite, doesn't care about actual harm to people (in a un-aired script she's the one who orchestrated Orel getting shot) and, if it wasn't for Clay Puppington, would be the worst character on the entire show.

** And who does the episode say is in charge of the FCC? [[WesternAnimation/GIJoe Cobra Commander]]. He's the one who orders them to censor television.

* In one episode of ''The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo'', a watchdog stops the show, insisting that the flame attacks from a dragon are too violent. Scrappy turns it around, however, insisting that she [[FantasticRacism has something personal against dragons]].

* Parodied in one of the earlier Halloween episodes of ''TheSimpsons'', where the cartoon figure of a network censor is stabbed to death while crossing out parts of the script, with the episode rating going up with each stabbing, eventually reaching "TV-666". Whilst his demise is bloody, the sentiments he utters during his murder ("Oh what the fudge! Oh Jiminy Christmas! Darn it!") are far from offensive.
