!!Traditional:
* The [[TropeNamers trope name itself comes from]] the last line of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' theme song.
** Two of the spinoffs from the Flintstones modified that line. "The Flintstones Comedy Hour/Show" proclaimed "We'll have a ''groovy'' time" (this was early-1970s), while "The New Fred and Barney Show" sang "We'll have a ''great'' old time".
** ''The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'' mentioned this in a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}. "Well, back then, 'gay' meant fun. Not like now, when it means 'really fun.'"
** In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', the cast drives by a devastated Bedrock, and [[HeteroNormativeCrusader Princess Clara]] snidely comments "well that's what they get for having a ''gay'' old time."
* Creator/ABCFamily cut the song "Give Your Heart a Try" from the Rankin/Bass animated version of '''WesternAnimation/TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas'' because of the use of the word "gay" in the lyrics.
* Topping the list of Things You Probably Shouldn't Say on AnimatedSeries Anymore, from Ruby-Spears' ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'':
-->'''Protoman''': [challenging his younger brother to a fight] I'll ''take you any way you want''!
-->'''Protoman''': [[TheMole (While pretending to reform)]] Geez, I try to go straight and you still don't trust me?
** "Whatever turns you on, Doc..."
* Given that Mr. Krabs of ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}''' entire manner of speech is intentionally archaic, this trope's pretty in-line with his character. The episode "The Lost Mattress" has Mr. Krabs use "queer" in its "strange, unusual" meaning. The episode "The Krusty Sponge" has Mr. Krabs refer to a little boy as a girl. "Girl" once used to mean a little kid, regardless of gender.
* Similarly to the above Virginia Woolf example, [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Optimus Prime]] once expressed amazement at [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Prime_Target "a booby trap that actually catches boobies"]].
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' upon hearing that an island was full of "booby traps", Grounder responds with "Booby traps? What does he think we are, boobs?"
* Some old ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts have titles that make you look twice nowadays:
** "Puss 'N' Booty" (1943)
** "Angel Puss" (1944)
** "Bone, Sweet Bone" (1948)
** "Boobs in the Woods" (1948)
** "Easter Yeggs" had Bugs encountering a weeping Easter Bunny who explains to him that his job delivering Easter eggs has made his feet sore and thus is unable to continue the job unless another rabbit does it for him (unbeknown to him, the Easter Bunny tricks other rabbits by guilt tripping them to doing the job for him while he doesn't have to do anything). During his sob story, he briefly mentions himself being "happy and gay" before hurting his feet. This can be taken both ways.
** The WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon "Bunny Hugged" features The Crusher, a huge beast of a wrestler, and his seriously mismatched opponent, a parody of real-life '{{sissy|Villain}}' wrestler GorgeousGeorge, announced as "Ravishing Ronno - the Gay Nature Boy". Again, can be taken both ways.
** From WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck:
--> Daffy Duck: [to second Daffy] Listen bud, If you wasn't me, I'd smack you right in the puss.
* Several old ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' shorts have "Puss" or "Pussy" in the title. In one, Spike the bulldogg threatened Tom with "I'll poke you in the puss!"
** Puss has always meant face though. PussY on the other hand...
* A 1960 WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker short is titled ''Billion Dollar Boner'' ("boner" being outdated slang for a screwup or a mistake).
** And for crying out loud, the name ''Woody''.
** Lampshaded in a T-shirt making the rounds at shops. It's a picture of a circa-1947 Woody in a bathrobe and slippers looking groggy, as if he had just woken up. The caption reads "Morning Woody."
*** ... and "pecker"....
** Another Walter Lantz cartoon features Andy Panda doing battle with a garden weed. Title: ''The Wacky Weed''.
* A WesternAnimation/YogiBear cartoon from the 1960s featured a troop of boy scouts camping at Jellystone Park, and Yogi scheming to get them to "share" their food with him. Ranger Smith sternly reprimands Yogi for this, saying, "Those boy scouts would never molest a bear, and I'm going to make sure that no bear molests ''them''." "Molest" had a meaning closer to "harass" or "upset" back then, but nowadays that line just comes out wrong, and the whole boy scout thing makes it even wronger.
** [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd "I know]] [[HilariousInHindsight what we're all]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/pedobear thinking"]].
*** Anyone who does attempt that kind of a thing with a bear probably deserves whatever they get.
** Similarly, the 1942 WesternAnimation/PorkyPig/WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck short ''My Favorite Duck'' has a scene where Daffy points out a sign reading: "Season closed - No duck shooting - Don't even ''molest'' a duck".
*** The Polish translator went with the word "molestowac", which means exclusively "to sexually harass" in modern Polish. Apparently, the translator missed [[BlindIdiotTranslation something]] [[ArtisticLicenseLinguistics there]]. Also, [[WhatAnIdiot the translator]] omitted the word "even", which quite clearly points to the fact that "molests" means something mild in this context.
** Also, from ''Yogi's Gang'' (a sort of team-up of all the Hanna Barbera talking animals up to that point) theme song, "If those big goons were out of the way / the world would be so bright and gay".
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men Evolution}}'' has Juggernaut boasting that he's raw power. Cyclops responds, "You want it raw, tough guy? Then take it raw!" before ripping off his [[FreudWasRight protective barrier]]. 'Raw' is becoming more and more recognized as a term for condomless sex.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider-Man The Animated Series}}'', a young boy interrupts a crime by shouting "Your gangbanging days are over!" at the perpetrators.
** Gang banger is still used as a term for someone in a gang, meaning that this is simply an unintentional DoubleEntendre. In the future, however, examples may well turn into this.
*** In modern parlance "gangbanger" pretty much always means "someone in a street gang", while "gang bang" pretty much always means "group sex". Some derivatives (such as "gangbanging") could go either way, though it's usually pretty clear from context which is meant.
* Remember the 'making love' explanation earlier? Does explain how WesternAnimation/PepeLePew got away with saying he'd love to do this all night and all day with an obviously non-consenting non-skunk he happened to grab without everyone and their senator screaming to bleach out the soundtrack.
* Speaking of the changing meaning of 'making love', a ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' song ("Who Is He Kissing?") featured the line "who is he kissing/is it me?/or is he making love to a fantasy?"
* A ''{{Fractured Fairy Tale}}s'' segment had the Big Bad Wolf as a lazy cad, reading a popular upscale girlie mag with the slightly altered title "Gay Boy".
* In the British cartoon ''WesternAnimation/KingArthursDisasters'' Lancelot's catchphrase when something happens that he doesn't like is "Oh Blow!"
* The 1936 WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat cartoon "Bold King Cole" had Felix singing this lyric.
-->''We laugh and play, it keeps us gay".
* Similar to the [=SpongeBob=] example, one of the lyrics in the song "What's This?" from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' has ''"In here, they've got a little tree! How queer!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this in their version of ''Literature/GreatExpectations''.
-->'''Matthew Pocket''': Oh, what a gay time we shall have, and I do mean gay as in festive, not as in penetration of the bum.
** Also lampshaded: "Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls", which Eric Cartman likes to eat.
** "Rainforest Schmainforest" put ''all three'' definitions of "gay" to use in various ways. The Getting Gay With Kids choir is all about children [[LighterAndSofter spreading cheer]] and not at all about going [[{{Shotacon}} pederastic]], though one jungle geurilla does rather indignantly declare that "I'm not getting gay with any kids!" Then too, the Getting Gay With Kids choir's original theme is indeed as "[[TotallyRadical totally gay]]" as it claims to be. (Their [[DarkerAndEdgier revised theme]] at the end, however, wasn't so gay in ''any'' sense of the word.)
* In ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'', Doc, who's prone to {{Spoonerism}}s, asks "What are you and who are you doing?" It was meant to just be a nonsense phrase, but now it sounds like he's asking Snow White who she has sex with.
* ''WesternAnimation/SkyDancers'' had an episode where one of the main characters had choreographed a new dance, and her companions urged her to demonstrate at a public event. Cue cries of "'''We want The 'D'! Show us The 'D'!'''"
* The 1954 black and white ''{{WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman}}'' short has a line "Happy and gay was he". It still airs on tv occasionally.
* ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'':
** In "Ups and Downs", which is about buoyancy, Keesha talks about turning their "floaters into sinkers".
** In "Revving Up," as the class floats around in the bus' carburetor, Wanda says "Now I know what a tossed salad feels like!".
** The name of the show itself can also be this. Especially since there are theories that Mrs Frizzle does actually drug the kids!

!!Intentional
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Played for laughs with Mr. Burns (who, according to the show's ever-shifting canon, came of age sometime between the turn of the twentieth century and the RoaringTwenties) is apparently completely unaware of the latter-day definition of the word "gay". On one occasion, on a shock-jock radio show, he recalls his father taking him to a picnic when he was a child, saying "That certainly was a gay experience. I ate my share of wieners that day!"
** Mr. Burns asks Smithers what he did this weekend, "Something gay, no doubt." Smithers is momentarily taken aback, but Burns continues, "You know, light-hearted, fancy free, mothers, lock up your daughters, Smithers is on the town!" Smithers is visibly relieved.
** Smithers is set on fire, and runs by Mr. Burns, who is watering the lawn. Screaming, "Help me, Mr. Burns! I'm ''flaming!''". Cue an AsideGlance that ''shatters'' the FourthWall.
** Burns (to Homer): "You're much more fun than Smithers. He doesn't even know the meaning of the word ''gay''!" (Cue GilliganCut that demonstrates that, yeah, he kinda does.)
** The season 22 episode "Flaming Moe" (not TheOneWith Music/{{Aerosmith}}[[note]]That one was called "Flaming Moe''' 's'''"[[/note]]) turns this up to eleven; one of Smithers' "friends" comments upon meeting Burns that he didn't know Smithers was into "lemon parties"[[note]]VERY not safe for work, look it up yourself-- or, better yet, don't[[/note]], and Burns obliviously insists that he gets "first squeeze".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpqBsU1JeE0 "Individually, we are weak like a single twig; but as a bundle, we form a mighty faggot!"]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yZYJSy3N6A Subtitles: "Faggot: A bunch of sticks used for fuel."]]
** Another Martin Prince example had him refer to a humanoid skeleton as "one of the major ''Homos''." Bart was about to let Martin have it for that one, but Lisa stopped him.
** Kent Brockman thanking New Springfield for making them rich "From now on, we'll be taking golden showers!" Which is followed by off-screen laughter from the crew as Brockman asks "What?!"
** Unlike when it was aired, "The Telltale Head" may make your kids giggle with Homer's line: "You know, Bart, when I was your age, I pulled a few boners."
** The Simpson innuendo for the ages, with a bit of HypocriticalHumor on Ned Flanders's part: "Homer, all of us pull a few boners now and then, go off half-cocked, make asses of ourselves. So I'm not trying to be [[RagingStiffie hard on]] you, but I just wish you wouldn't curse in front of my boys."
** AYDS (See the HaveAGayOldTime/{{Advertising}} sub-page):
--->'''Woman 1''': Marge, I see you've lost weight. Have you been dieting?\\
'''Marge''': [Smiling] No, I have AYDS!
* Grandpa in ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' isn't up to date with the lingo, and when he hears about the R. Kelly case, he comments [[{{Squick}} "I wish someone gave me a golden shower"]] to the amusement of Riley.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'':
--> '''Principal [=McVicker=]''': Mr. Sherman the history teacher says he's completely given up on trying to teach your class about TheGayNineties.
--> '''Beavis''': [[VerbalTic Heh-heh, heh-heh...]]
--> '''Butt-Head''': [[VerbalTic Huh-huh, huh-huh...]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'':
** Roger Klotz says "Yeah, what do you know Skeet-face?"
** Doug's best friend being named Skeeter brings up all kinds of these examples.
* Prince Adam from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' doesn't have any old secret powers. He has "''fabulous'' secret powers".
* In a storyline in ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider-Man the Animated Series}}'', Peter is bemused at the idea of a WWII-era hero in a yellow costume called The Whizzer - because of his [[SuperSpeed speed]]. At Omar Mosely explains, it was a different time.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', episode "Double Deuce", it's already been established that Woodhouse is attracted to Reggie Thistleton. Both characters are British and fighting in TheGreatWar when this happens:
-->'''Woodhouse:''' I'm a --\\
'''Reggie:''' Fag?\\
'''Woodhouse:''' Excuse me, sir?\\
'''Reggie:''' Have you got one? Dying for a smoke.
