* An episode of ''TheBackyardigans'' called "The Great Dolphin Race" has "Jumping jellyfish!" as an euphemism. It also has "Leaping lobsters!" and "Holy cowfish!".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The trope is parodied. In one episode, [[AllMenArePerverts Mr. Cat]] offers to take Kaeloo on a dinner date and implies that they can have sex afterwards using a euphemism about "accountants" and "checks". Kaeloo, being naïve and innocent, believes that he's trying to [[MakesSenseInContext bribe her]].

** The word barnacles seems to be their equivalent of sh* t or bull sh* t as it's sometimes used like "this is a load of barnacles" and "you're full of barnacles", in another example Mr. Krabs had given on ever being able to do something and Spongebob says "Barnacles!" and Mr. Krabs says "Spongebob!" as if he said a very bad word and Spongebob says "Sorry about the foul language, Mr. Krabs". This euphemism is actually directly lampshaded by the song "Barnacles" in the music CD "Spongebob On The High Seas," in which Spongebob, Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton flat-out state that it's a euphemism for curse words. This goes so far as to break the fourth wall and may even count as a TakeThat at censorship in general. However, the fact that it encourages censorship by use of this euphemism suggests otherwise. Still, I can't help but feel the chorus is poking fun at it.

* ''HalloweenIsGrinchNight'' deserves special credit here: an outhouse is referred to as "the euphemism."

** In another case, The Maximals thought they would be returning to Cybertron. Upon remembering that LawfulGood Silverwing never knew Cybertron, and seems upset about leaving Earth ([[spoilers He's really DatingCatwoman behind everyone's backs and isn't pleased with the fact that they will not be able to see each other upon leaving Earth]]), Cheetor offers to take him to "Six Lasers over Cybertron". Rattrap instead offers to take him to a little hole in the wall he knows of where the waitresses don't have chest plates and you can see their chassis. Given Silverwing's personality and his real concerns, this CrossesTheLineTwice.

* Mr. Bumpy from ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' would sometimes use "bump" as an expletive, most notably saying "Bump this" whenever he was fed up with something.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has the following exchange. The way the expression comes off is a bit confusing; it's implied that they think she's dancing and the song that they perform follows that logic. Though, at the exact moment the line is spoken, Candace is [[HartmanHips bending over with her hands on her butt and begins to shake her hips]]. It does look like dancing, especially when you consider that they are supposed to be breakdancers/rappers.
