* In the early seasons, quite a few one-shot characters would be seen smoking, typically villains or crooked characters, such as the [[CigarChomper cigar-chomping]] lawyer F. Lee Barnum whom even smokes his cigar in a ''courtroom'' (from "Pickles vs. Pickles"), the cigar-smoking manager of Greenstreet's supermarket (from "The Case of the Missing Rugrat"), and the [[StupidCrooks bumbling crook]] Mike, whom always has a cigarette dangling in his mouth (from "Ruthless Tommy.")

* In "Barbecue Story," Angelica kicks Tommy's ball over the fence. Tommy delivers a RousingSpeech to the other babies and his diaper straps came undone and his diaper started sliding off. You can see the top half of Tommy's crotch, and he very quickly pulls up his diaper and his cheeks turned red.

** Dil pulls Tommy's diaper down while he's talking to the other babies. We see their reactions but special mention goes to Lil's expression of wonder and excitement.
** Charlotte says that she just knew Didi was going to have a boy, with the following line: "You know what they say: born under Venus, look for a--" (At which point her cell phone rings and interrupts her.)

* A questionable line occurs in the episode "Give and Take", in which Chuckie became obsessed with playing with an inflatable clown doll named Boppo to the point of ignoring the other babies. Says Phil, "A kid his age should be outside playing with his friends, not sitting alone in his room [[DoubleEntendre bopping]] [[ADateWithRosiePalms his Boppo.]]" Cue massive DoubleTake.

* "Weaning Tommy" does the same thing as "No More Cookies", only with Tommy's difficulty in giving up drinking from a bottle being used as the stand-in for drug addiction. Tommy looks like he's going through withdrawals, he hides bottles in random places, he bargains with Phil and Lil, and even says "[[INeedAFreakingDrink I need a drink]]" at one point.

* The [[MemeticMutation chocolate pudding scene from "Angelica Breaks a Leg"]] includes Stu bringing Angelica the pudding when she's watching TV. The sounds in the background make it sound like she's enjoying a war movie.

* There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in the episode "Turtle Recall" where Chaz is looking at an enormous department store directory, and you see half a word cut off by the screen, "vibra-". Go on, just tell me that wasn't supposed to be "vibrators."
** What about "vibrating massage chairs"?

** Also, Didi is trying to tell Betty that the nakedness is a natural stage for babies to go through. Betty is not sold on this, saying, "The sixties are over, and we lost. So get with the program, alright!"

* A debatable case similar to the aforementioned instant of Phil and Lil being seen breastfeeding comes from the ''Tales from the Crib'' direct-to-video film "Three Jacks and a Beanstalk". In the film, the babies are cared for by an anthropomorphic cow named Aunt Moo, who feeds them with her own milk. Her udders, which are covered up by a flap on her overalls when not in use, suspiciously never show up onscreen when she milks herself and we never see them until she shoots milk in Angelica the Giant's face. After she squirts milk in Angelica's face, she even says something to the effect of "Be glad that's just milk".

* In an episode where the gang tries to "potty train" Spike at the end they [[ItMakesSenseInContext all pretend to pee on a tree]]. The boys are standing up but Lil is ''crouching''. Yes, that's how most females pee but the radar normally doesn't allow such things.

* Despite all of this, the cute-looking premise of the show (and the fact its protagonists are babies) was apparently enough to be considered acceptable for airing on '''NickJr''' at one point during the 1990s and 2014.
