It's no secret that Cartoon Network's radar system has a lot of screws loose in terms of airing dubious content...and not just on their primetime-to-late-night Creator/AdultSwim line-up. Their daytime original programming[[note]]a lot of which take cues -- and have crew members -- from Nickelodeon's Nicktoons, especially during the first wave of Cartoon Network's original programming [The "Cartoon Cartoon" era][[/note]] all proudly push the limits of their TV-Y7 rating, and their imported theatrical cartoon shorts collection[[note]]Looney Tunes, Merrie Melodies, Tom and Jerry, the MGM cartoons Tex Avery made when he quit Warner Bros., and, in the earlier days and in some countries, the Woody Woodpecker/Walter Lantz cartoons[[/note]], despite most being EditedForSyndication, pushes the limits of their TV-G rating. As of 2010, however, most of their original programming airs with a TV-PG rating in an attempt to "age up" the programming and get more ratings from their PeripheryDemographic (older kids and parents who watch cartoons with their kids for either MoralGuardian or nostalgia reasons), even though the TV-Y7 for fantasy violence (FV) rating still appears on some of their programming (mostly their syndicated shows, like ''Tom and Jerry Tales'' and ''Pokémon'', but ''The Amazing World of Gumball''[[note]]even though it has a PG certificate in its native UK for comic violence, rude humor, dangerous behavior, and suggestive themes and dialogue[[/note]], ''We Bare Bears'', and the 2016 reboot of ''The Powerpuff Girls'' are the current exceptions). Starting around 2015, though, network CEO Christina Miller seemingly began a campaign to stomp out the older-skewing shows due to her and the executives supposedly being hardline MoralGuardians[[note]]Despite ''Regular Show'', ''Adventure Time'', and ''Steven Universe'' getting ScrewedByTheNetwork because of this, ''Teen Titans Go!'', ''Clarence'', and ''Uncle Grandpa'' [though it's been canceled, a lot of new episodes have been made before everyone was laid off] have not been affected. ''The Amazing World of Gumball'', however, has gotten more violent and more off-color, though that could be excused as ''Gumball'' is part of Cartoon Network's UK channel, which has slightly different censorship rules than those on the American channel.[[/note]]

* In a later episode, Coco tries to get a single room after Eduardo already asked for it. When Mr. Harriman claims that Eduardo needed it more, Frankie starts to object and is about to explain, why a girl can't share a room with three boys when the scenario just switches. Once we are back at Harriman's office, he's sweating and utters something along the lines: "I-I-I never knew there were so many... special "needs" for women.... Ms. Coco gets the room." Frankie Foster smiles delightful and a bit mischievous. We are left to guess, what she just told him about girls... Not that we couldn't guess.

* In "Squeeze the Day" Mac suggests while he and Bloo are home alone, they watch Frankie's videos that are for "grown-ups only." We see them watching a video looking shocked. It turns out to be a dramatic period piece that a kid like Mac would find really boring.

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Bride to Beat", Bloo has a pair of conversations with a suicidal imaginary friend who seems like he's going to jump off the roof. Both times, Bloo pushes him off.
* In "Mac Daddy", Mac and Bloo's argument about Mac possibly creating a new imaginary friend sounds a lot like an argument about romantic infidelity.

* While ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' did not get as much dubious content as Joe Murray's [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife other cartoon]], there were some gems. For example, when Samson complains about sleeping on the uncomfortable stools at Acorn Flats, Edward tells him to use "stool softener". We also have Edward and Lazlo in the same sleeping bag where Edward (Clearly feeling around in Lazlo's bag) remarks that Lazlo's pajamas are very soft and downy, and then Lazlo tells him that he "sleeps in the nude". Cut to a clearly traumatized Edward in the corner of the tent shuddering in terror.

* Radar/WhatACartoonShow



[[folder:Cow and Chicken]]
Much like ''Johnny Bravo'', ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' is also remembered for its ability to push Creator/CartoonNetwork's envelope on what can and can't be shown to kids on cable TV. It helps that most of the show's staff used to work on ''Ren and Stimpy'' (including show creator David Feiss and such staff members as Bob Camp and Richard Pursel) and are known for appearing on cartoons that are known for dodging the radar (like episode writer Steve Marmel, who also wrote for ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' and ''Ying Yang Yo!'', or CharlieAdler, who's [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife no stranger in doing voicework on a cable cartoon known for slipping in dubious "adult" jokes]]):
* The Red Guy (apart from the fact that he's {{Satan}}. The pilot episode "No Smoking" established that he ''is'' the Devil and even has Cerberus, the three-headed hound of Hades, as a pet) was always a champion of butt-related puns ("Ben Panced", "Ivan Panced," "Larry Lackapants," "Baron von Neinlederhosen," "Officer Pantsoffski", "Rear Admiral Floyd", "Mrs. Barederriere," "Geraldo Rearviewa," "Professor Hineybottom," "C.D. Heinie," "Dr. Hiney," among many other pseudonyms), but he may have [[CrossesTheLineTwice crossed the line]] in one episode where he involved himself with an island tribe called the "Asswipe"- pronounced [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY "az-wee-pay"]] (but showed up quite clearly as "asswipe" on the closed captions).
** Perhaps the worst of these, though, was an episode where the Red Guy appears as a sensitivity training school teacher named ''Mrs. [[CountryMatters Beaver]]''. Also, in terms of nudity-related puns, we have his character "Lance Sackless," the host of ''Canada's Most Idiotic Home Videos''[[note]]what's funny is that the name was originally "Lance Slackless". For unknown reasons -- be it a goof on Adler's part or the show writers' -- it became Lance Sackless[[/note]]
* In the episode "Ballerina Cow", Red Guy is a demolition man, but has to pretend to be a talent scout in order to recruit Cow into destroying his buildings with her dancing. He hands his business card to Cow, and under his title, it says, "HOMEWRECKER." [[note]] A slang term for someone, usually a woman, who ruins marriages through having affairs.[[/note]] Cow points this out and Red Guy's response, "That's my talent."
* The literal carpet-munching BadassBiker women in the episode "Buffalo Gals." In fact, most of that episode was packed with [[LesYay lesbian stereotyping]] (the biker who takes Cow under her wing is named "Munch Kelly," her calling card is a carpet sample with the female symbol [the cross with a circle on top] on it, Mom telling Dad that they're not after him as they chew on the living room carpet, and the girls playing softball with Cow saying, "I'll pitch and you catch"). Sadly, the radar caught up with this episode, thanks to a MoralGuardian parent who wrote in and complained about it. It was pulled from rotation (and was left out when put on Netflix) and replaced with the episode "Orthodontic Police." It can now be seen on many video websites, including YouTube ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O0dCdU4UPk&list=FLmUyD-pa3jFzBC7mig5uGDg]])
* In the episode "The Girls Bathroom", Chicken sneaks into the girls bathroom at night to see what it looks like inside, with Flem and Earl outside. At one point, while in the bathroom, Chicken walks past a ''tampon machine'' and then tells the boys through walkie-talkies "You guys, I think they can buy cigars in here!", to which Flem replies "I knew it!".
** In the same episode, Dad says something among the lines of "Of course I've been in the girl's bathroom! Why, some of the best times of my life have been spent there! Oh I could tell you some stories!"
* In one episode, Cow gets the idea that a boy doesn't like her because [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything her horns are too small.]] She even wears a padded bra on her head to make them look bigger. The title of the episode is "Horn Envy".
* The show makes constant references to the implication that Dad and Mom are transsexuals.
* Cow's toys are named Piles (hemorrhoids) the Beaver, Crabs (pubic lice it was supposed to be "Craps," but Cartoon Network caught that one) the Warthog, and Manure the Bear.
