** For a while, there were a series of commecials called [[WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}} "Wonder Woman's]] Golden Lasso of Truth", where she would catch another cartoon character and have them reveal something about themselves, often with some kind of innuendo. For example, one time, she caught WesternAnimation/{{Shazzan}} who said, "My ears aren't the only things that are pierced". He then laughs. Another involved her catching ComicBook/RichieRich, who said, "Money can very easily buy you love... lots of it!", revealing that he's CoveredInKisses.

* WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}} - In the episode ''Snakebit'', this happens literally: the second S in the "Ed n' Edna's Scrap and Junk" sign fails to light up for a moment. Wait for it...

* The obscure ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' has a few moments. For example, "Losing Lancelot" has Mike and Og going out on a boat to save Lancelot from sharks and Margery thinks the two are "too young to go out on a boat alone". Plus, we see Og run without his loincloth on in "Hot Couture" (though we only see his butt). Not to mention that the ''WhatACartoon'' pilot doesn't give backsides to Lu's bra and Og's loincloth.

** A promo featuring Ed from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' on a date with Daphne from ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', Ed keeps on mentioning how he loves Double D on his date. He's referring to his friend Edd but Daphne thinks he's talking about breasts.
-->''Daphne'': His constant talking about double-d made me a little uncomfortable. *looks at chest* How am I supposed to compete with that?"
** A ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' crossover promo had Franchise/WonderWoman tell the girls "You girls are developing into quite the superheroes" after being rescued. Bubbles innocently replies with "Some day we'll be as developed as you". Aquaman and Wonder Woman notice the AccidentalInnuendo, and so do the villains as they begin laughing. Wonder Woman covers her chest in embarrassment.
** Another ''Powerpuff Girls'' promo has Mojo Jojo confronting a real gorilla. When the gorilla stands up, Mojo comments with "It isn't fair. He gets all the girls!"

** [[FreudWasRight Phallic]] and oftentimes [[ADateWithRosiePalms autoerotic]] innuendo (Tuddrussell's laser gun magazine folding out like a ''{{Playboy}}'' centerfold on "Kubla Khan't"), among other scenes involving Tuddrussell's guns (cf. "Hate and Let Hate," where Larry gets a PersonalitySwap after accidentally firing off one of Tuddrussell's guns).
** [[FreudWasRight Freudian imagery]] that [[LateToThePunchline some viewers wouldn't notice the first time around]]

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 "Flesh Fur Fantasy", Windsor Gorilla had his classmates draw ''nude pics'' of him in his human costume.
* In "Animal School Musical", Adam gets hit in his "Lower stomach area" when it's pretty clear [[GroinAttack where the ball actually hit him]]. And later on, when Ingrid Giraffe starts forcefully kissing Henry Armadillo dressed as Adam, he says he feels funny in his "lower stomach area".

* 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.
