** The video's gone down the memory hole, but [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} TOW]] has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_Party_protests fairly comprehensive coverage]]. 'Teabagger' later became runner-up for the Oxford English Dictionary New Word of the Year, for which [[CountdownWithKeithOlbermann Keith Olbermann]] is claiming some responsibility.

** Well, it was a hot tub filled with mud (which may be a problem in other ways) that couldn't be seen through, nothing is shown from the neck down, and while Luxwana and Deanna may have been naked when they were in the tub earlier in the episode, it is perfectly reasonable to assume that they (and Alexander, for that matter) were wearing swimsuits out of courtesy for the underage, opposite-gender child.
** ST:TNG also got a number of obscenities under the radar by having Picard swear in French.

child. Also, the context was far from suggestive, with Deanna being a very close friend of Worf's and Luxwana being her mother.
** ST:TNG also got a number of obscenities under the radar by having Picard swear in French. At the time, mainstream (i.e. non-cable) series were barely allowed to use "damn" and "hell".

* In ''Seres/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', the female pilots are hanging out at the bar on their ship. One is thoroughly yet absent-mindedly sucking on the end of the olive from her cocktail. Another pilot comments "You're sucking that olive like it bought you jewelry."

** In "Worst First Day Ever", Oscar comments during his retelling of his story how Orchid "came along and ''scared'' me half to death!" While not used in the "life is ending" concept, this is on a show involving real people, not to mention that the only PBS Kids show that is allowed to have death displayed on it is ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'', due to the fact it's a nature show and thus is allowed show death in nature as the Circle of Life.
** During "Oscar and the Oscarbots", when the Oscarbots make Ms. O's juice box, we see what appears to be blood coming out of an Oscarbot's fingertips, as well as [[TheUnSmile a bit of an unnatural smile,]] oranges kept inside one bot's pants, and fire coming out of one's fingertips. Olive and Otto's expressions merely say it all.
** On the subject of bots, the upcoming episode [[ArtifactTitle "Oona and the Oonabots"]] has one: [[spoiler:During one scene where Oona introduces her first Oonabot out of three, ''the bot's arm falls off.'' Keep in mind this bot looks and resembles Oona ''exactly.'' When you put the pieces together, it's a wonder how PBS Kids will likely manage to miss this.]]
** In "Skip Day", Olive jumping out of a plane without a parachute could be considered a [[SuicideIsPainless suicide attempt,]] albeit she had a neurological disorder which caused her to jump out of a plane. It was lucky Otto found out where his partner was and [[InterruptedSuicide rescued]] [[HappilyFailedSuicide her]] before she hit the ground...
** "Training Day" can't decide [[WeaksauceWeakness if pies injure or kill.]] But the fight scene at the end seems to indicate that [[AbnormalAmmo pies can indeed fatally wound and kill you.]] Made worse by the fact that the supposedly dead bodies of Ms. O, Dr. O, and Oscar (though he gets back up and protects Olive before being shot down again) flash by onscreen.
** "Assistant's Creed". Need we say more?

** Interestingly, NBC is credited as the first network to show a female navel on American television, with a bikini-clad Yvette Mimieux in the two-part ''Dr Kildare'' episode "Tyger, Tyger..." in 1964. It was after this episode aired however, that NBC really started to crack down on navel censorship.

* ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark:'' In "The Tale of the Super Specs", the very first thing that Weeds does when he gets the titulat pair of x-ray glasses is [[AllMenArePerverts look at Marybeth's chest]].

* Another BritCom called ''Series/ManAboutTheHouse'' (which was later remade in the US as ThreesCompany) had one in the end credits. They ran over a series of still frames, one of which was a set of three statues, a rooster between two cats. Apparently this wasn't blatant enough to get censorship.
