Getting Crap Past the Radar refers to instances when a writer, artist or other creator puts inappropriate content into their material that would be shocking not only to the {{Media Watchdog}}s and MoralGuardians, but to everyone else, sneaking it past the censors by using implication or allusion rather than stating it straight out. Often, what makes it shocking is not the specific content, but that it is out of keeping with its context. Most examples are found in materials aimed at children or shows alleging to be family-friendly. And there are times when creators will do this even when they don't have to, simply because [[RuleOfFunny it's funnier than being blatantly vulgar]].

Compare to ParentalBonus, which is what most of the jokes that get past the radar are. Contrast with DefyingTheCensors, in which the creators actually fight to have their controversial work be shown to the masses. See also CrossesTheLineTwice (which is often the end result of excessive Getting Crap Past The Radar or slipping by blatantly inappropriate content).

Contrast CrossesTheLineTwice and RefugeInAudacity, when the crap is ''loudly and '''proudly''''' crashed through the radar. See also CensorDecoy.
