This is supposed to be the page for things that are NOT for children, despite being treated that way.
* Considering this article, nothing beats the Dutch children's program ''Theo En Thea'' (1985-1989). This controversial kids' show talked about topics that some parents (mostly overprotective ones) wouldn't see as fit to discuss with young children, such as prostitution, drug abuse, and sexual harassment. Despite all objections the show was both a hit with kids and adults alike! * Another gem of Dutch childrens' television: ''Purno De Purno''. With characters such as the "Kittelaar" (a Dutch word for clitoris), politically incorrect gags about sex, homosexuality and bodily functions, political commentary and very suggestive imagery. Most likely Dutch TV shows back then were very good and MoralGuardians feared that they would get flamed if they attacked those shows [[AmericansHateTingle so they flamed anime instead.]]

* ''Series/TwentyFour'' suffers the same "detectives and spies are okay for kids" stigma that series like James Bond and Austin Powers commonly get treated with (see [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids.{{Film}} this page for more on that]]) Its popularity with kids was made famous upon the publication of [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1318646/First-man-moon-Buzz-Lightyear-say-1-5-schoolchildren.html a study showing that British school children knew more about pop culture than events in history]].

The show has animals who engage in activities such as looking at pornography, masturbating, getting addicted to medications, collecting bloodstained bags, and drinking urine.

** ''Series/UltramanAce'' features plenty of kid-unfriendly kaiju violence. Take for example, Barabas in Episode 14, who was stabbed in the torso with its own sword, punched in the back so hard that its eyes dislodged from its skull, had its left hand torn off, and finally decapitated! What about Muruchi, who was dismembered on-screen by a very angry Doragory in Episode 8 ''[[DisproportionateRetribution for accidentally bumping into him!]]''.

* This is one of the major reasons why ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' was in DevelopmentHell for so long. Melissa Rosenberg wanted the series to be appropriately DarkerAndEdgier to reflect its [[Comicbook/{{Alias}} source material]], but none of the networks were interested in a superhero show that dealt with the gritty subject matter she was pitching. It eventually got picked up by {{Netflix}}, which is known for its more mature content. Like ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'', it earned a TV-MA rating. It's primary themes include such cheery subjects as [[TheAlcoholic alcoholism]], PTSD and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rape]], each of which are delved in to a disturbing degree.
