** The Ho Yay centered on Larry went from being barely noticeable in season one to being a character trait in season two. The Ho Yay count kept on rolling into RefugeInAudacity territory, with Larry and his feelings for Tuddrussel being the prime target. The idea escalates to the season two episode "Ex Marks The Spot", where Larry acts like a jealous housewife and tries to sabotage Tuddrussel's and his ex-wife Sheila's dinner after seeing them act rather unusually cool towards each other. When found out, and Tuddrussel casually laughs it off, Larry bitterly tells him he's sleeping on the sofa.
*** "Day of the Larrys" was another season two episode that seemed to exist as a challenge to the writers to pack as many gay references as possible before the censors catch on. Maybe they ''did'' ask Dave Wasson (''Time Squad'' show creator) to tone down some parts, but that episode got away with a gay cowboy Larry opening hitting on Tuddrussell in front of Otto at a gay disco (that looks like the one from the ''Simpsons'' episode "Homer's Phobia"), so, unless Dave Wasson reveals behind-the-scenes secrets either in a podcast or on a documentary, there's no way of knowing what the [[CensorDecoy sacrificed scenes]] were.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' started off as a relatively innocent cartoon about twins exploring an apparently sleepy city while staying at the tourist trap of their mysterious Grunkle Stan. Cue [[DarkerandEdgier Season 2]], which opened with the [[MonsteroftheWeek monsters]] being ''zombies'', and then continues to evolve [[spoiler: [[DemonicPossession possessed brothers]], [[{{Yandere}} a videogame girl wanting to keep Soos forever]], a missing family member [[BadassGrandpa who's been traveling 30 years through different dimensions]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast dark]] [[FunnyAneurysm pasts]], the GenkiGirl [[HeroicBSOD losing hope]] and locking up in a LotusEaterMachine, and finally ''the end of the world'']]. [[{{Understatement}} That escalated quickly]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' episode "The Rambling of Maurice", a Franchise/{{Batman}} skit features Two-Face getting his face burnt again, turning him into Three-Face. He then gets burnt a third time and becomes Four-Face, and the skit ends before we see the aftermath of him getting burnt a fourth time.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': It's like the writers sat down during the pitch meetings for season two and said, "Guys, let's ramp up all those gay jokes we had about the Larry 3000 to the point that people ''will'' wonder if this show is supposed to be on AdultSwim[[note]]"Day of the Larrys" and "Ex Marks the Spot"[[/note]]. Heck, let's throw in some jokes featuring Otto being abused and neglected as well[[note]]"Hate and Let Hate," "Out With the In Crowd," and "Orphan Substitute"[[/note]]. CartoonNetwork is probably going to cancel us, so if we're going to go out, let's go out with a freakin' bang!"
