Sometimes, there will be times in which a character's urine is a different color. Sometimes it will be a different color just because of something that happened to them, and other times it will be a different color for unexplained reasons (most of the time in Western Animation it will be a weird color for unexplained reasons).


  • In Role Models, the main characters' urine turns green due to them drinking the energy drinks they were promoting.
  • In The Madness Of King George, his urine is blue due to an actual symptom of George III's Porphyria.
  • Grown Ups has Kevin James peeing in the pool which is treated to make pee turn blue.

Live Action TV
  • In an episode of House, a woman comes to House telling him that she's dying. She has a seizure and urinates on herself, but the urine is green.

  • Dylan Moran had a stand-up routine where he said he knew someone who touched a Wiggle and his urine turned blue.

Western Animation
  • In an episode of The Angry Beavers, Norbert and Dagget had to take care of a baby mongoose. In one scene, the mongoose urinates on Norbert's face...but the stream is green.
  • In an episode of Danny Phantom, Dash soaks Danny with a water gun, and then tells him that the liquid wasn't water...but the liquid is blue.

Real Life
  • Methylene blue can turn urine blue when ingested. This is also used on an episode of MASH.
  • Certain conditions (Porphyria as above) or diets can cause urine to be different colors.

(help me out with more examples, please.)
