** The periphery demographic has a few as well. "Plot" came to mean a pony's rump (after the phrase "I watch it for the plot" went viral), which means a reference to a "plothole" in a fanfic likely has nothing to do with bad writing. Well, OK, it kinda does, but not in the usual way. They also tend to use "buck" as a synonym for the F-word, leading to [[FridgeLogic interesting implications]] for Applejack's use of "apple-bucking" to get the apples out of the trees.

* ''CloneHigh'' uses "Dinger!" where one would usually use a stronger word to mean OhCrap.
* ''Ben10'' Kevin starts explaining to a 10 year old Ben where baby aliens come from. He gets cut off, and says "What? I had to learn astrophysics on the street." [[SarcasmMode Astrophysics indeed.]]

f* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', the word "smurf" is applied to anything the writers feel would be funny, but especially as a rather transparent substitute for expletives; in some cases, they are then upbraided by another character for using "such language."

* There's a kind of variation in the 1970s British animated puppet show ''TheClangers''. None of the title characters had any actual dialogue. They all "spoke" in echoing slide-whistle notes that had the cadence of English speech, so that it was often possible to work out what they were saying from the context of the story - for instance, "Whee-oo, woo-oo woo-oo" could be interpreted as "Hello, Tiny Clanger". On one occasion it was claimed that one of the character's whistles meant "Sod it! The bloody thing's stuck!" although this could never be proven.

* ''PiratesOfDarkWater'' used a set of fictional curse-words, such as "noi jitat" and "jungo-lungo", to bypass the censors, as well as to enrich the sense of an alternate universe. This allowed the characters to retain their foul-mouthed pirate personalities (though most of the protagonists weren't actually pirates) while keeping the show safe for children.
