Oh, how we love a cable network who actually took a chance and aired TV-PG shows during the day on what is ostensibly a "children's entertainment network" and whose Standards and Practices Department members either don't know what's appropriate for kids or don't care. Whether you loved the Creator/CartoonNetwork that aired classic cartoons, the Cartoon Network that currently airs original programming, or the Cartoon Network that aired a healthy combination of classic cartoons and modern favorites, this channel is known for shattering the AnimationAgeGhetto, and these examples (past and present) are proof!

[[folder:Cow and Chicken]]
* Much like ''Johnny Bravo'', ''TimeSquad'', ''RegularShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' is also remembered for its ability to push Creator/CartoonNetwork's envelope on what can and can't be shown to kids on cable TV. Though unlike most of the shows listed that only get crap past the radar because they're trying to emulate ''Ren and Stimpy'', ''Cow and Chicken'' actually ''has'' some of ''Ren and Stimpy'''s writers, storyboard artists, and animators on the show (along with other writers who have done kids' cartoons that have a PeripheryDemographic, like comedian Steve Marmel, who wrote for ''TheFairlyOddparents''), making ''Cow and Chicken'' Creator/CartoonNetwork's answer to ''Ren and Stimpy'', only a little less gross and a little more focused on what's listed below:
** The Red Guy (apart from the fact that he's {{Satan}}. The pilot episode "No Smoking" established that he is the Devil and even has Cerberus, the three-headed hound of Hades, as a pet) was always a champion of butt-related puns ("Ben Panced", "Ivan Panced," "Larry Lackapants," "Baron von Neinlederhosen," "Officer Pantsoffski", "Rear Admiral Floyd", "Mrs. Barederriere," "Geraldo Rearviewa," "Professor Hineybottom," "C.D. Heinie," "Dr. Hiney," among many other pseudonyms), but he may have [[CrossesTheLineTwice crossed the line]] in one episode where he involved himself with an island tribe called the "Asswipe"- pronounced [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY "az-wee-pay"]] (but showed up quite clearly as "asswipe" on the closed captions).
*** In the episode "Ballerina Cow", Red Guy is a demolition man, but has to pretend to be a talent scout in order to recruit Cow into destroying his buildings with her dancing. He hands his business card to Cow, and under his title, it says, "HOMEWRECKER." Cow points this out and Red Guy's response, "That's my talent."
** Perhaps the worst of these, though, was an episode where the Red Guy appears as a sensitivity training school teacher named ''Mrs. [[CountryMatters Beaver]]''. Also, in terms of nudity-related puns, we have his character "Lance Sackless," the host of ''Canada's Most Idiotic Home Videos''.
** The literal carpet-munching BadassBiker women in the episode "Buffalo Gals." In fact, most of that episode was packed with [[LesYay lesbian undertones]] (the biker who takes Cow under her wing is named "Munch Kelly," her calling card is a carpet sample with the female symbol [the cross with a circle on top] on it, Mom telling Dad that they're not after him as they chew on the living room carpet, and the girls playing softball with Cow saying, "I'll pitch and you catch"). Sadly, the radar caught up with this episode. It was pulled from rotation and replaced with the episode "Orthodontic Police." It can now be seen on many video websites, including YouTube ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O0dCdU4UPk&list=FLmUyD-pa3jFzBC7mig5uGDg]])
*** What about "No Smoking", where the Red Guy drags Ckicken to {{Hell}} for smoking underage & tortures him once he gets there, normally in ways that involve cigarettes.? To shorten the description, ''[[UpToEleven it makes the Buffalo Gals episode look safe for kids by comparison!]]''
** This cartoon was packed to the brim with lots of characters having [[GayMoment gay moments]] and many instances of gender confusion, such as "Confused," "Which Came First," the aforementioned "[[MissingEpisode Buffalo Gals]]," and any time Dad alludes to either being less of a man than Mom or being a female to male transsexual. That "Buffalo Gals" was banned for mild lesbian undertones and everything other reference to gender confusion stayed really makes you wonder what the Creator/CartoonNetwork censors' collective reason was behind this decision, though it has been said that "Buffalo Gals" was banned because a parent wrote in and complained.
** In the "I Am Weasel" segment "Law of Gravity", as the lawyers are floating near the Big Ben, one of the men clearly says "bastards".
** In the episode "The Girls Bathroom", Chicken sneaks into the girls bathroom at night to see what it looks like inside, with Flem and Earl outside. At one point, while in the bathroom, Chicken walks past a ''tampon machine'' and then tells the boys through walkie-talkies "You guys, I think they can buy cigars in here!", to which Flem replies "I knew it!".
*** In the same episode, Chicken's Dad says something among the lines of "Of course I've been in the girl's bathroom! Why, some of the best times of my lfie have been spent there! Oh I could tell you some stories!"
** In one episode, Cow gets the idea that a boy doesn't like her because [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything her horns are too small.]] She even wears a padded bra on her head to make them look bigger. The title of the episode is "Horn Envy".
** The episode [[FantasticVoyagePlot "Journey to the Center of Cow"]] has a ShoutOut to (of all things) Film/{{Deliverance}}.
-->'''Hillbilly Enzyme:''' Hey boy, you've got a purdy beak.

[[folder:Time Squad]]
* The show may not have had a long life on Cartoon Network (started June 2001; ended November 2003), but it left behind a glut of crap that got past the radar. Any given episode has one or more of the following:
** References to homosexuality, all of which was centered on [[RobotBuddy The Larry 3000]] and made up a huge chunk of what got past the censors (see [[HoYay/TimeSquad Time Squad's Ho Yay section]] for more details)
** Drug humor (season one's "Eli Whitney's Flesh-Eating Mistake" and season two's "Pasteur Packs O'Punch" had Larry acting drunk; in "Betsy Ross Flies Her Freak Flag," Betsy Ross and George Washington's army all have red-rimmed eyes and act like stoners. On top of that, there was a strange, white cloud around the "Magical Farm Place Farm").
** BlackComedy, in the form of several instances of [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood child abuse and neglect being played for laughs]] (Otto's life in the orphanage as seen in "Eli Whitney's Flesh Eating Mistake" and "Orphan Substitute," Otto getting left behind on the island on "Hate and Let Hate" for most of the episode, an unnamed child getting a piano dropped on him during his birthday party on "The Clownfather," and Otto getting injured while Tuddrussell tries to be like a father to him in "Father Figure of Our Country.")
** [[FreudWasRight Phallic]] and oftentimes [[ADateWithRosiePalms autoerotic]] innuendo (Tuddrussell's laser gun magazine folding out like a ''{{Playboy}}'' centerfold on "Kubla Khan't"), among other scenes involving Tuddrussell's guns (cf. "Hate and Let Hate," where Larry gets a PersonalitySwap after accidentally firing off one of Tuddrussell's guns).
** [[FreudWasRight Freudian imagery]] that [[LateToThePunchline some viewers wouldn't notice the first time around]]
** [[DoubleEntendre Lines of dialogue that come off as rather...risque]].
** Some racial/ethnic stereotyping (Larry saying the orphans looked cute with their "black faces" [which they got from mining coal] in "Orphan Substitute"; Atilla the Hun portrayed as a [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Mort Goldman]]-esque Jewish stereotype in "A Thrilla at Atilla's")
** Even a couple of the ''titles'' were iffy, particularly "To Hail With Caesar" and "Big Al's Big Secret".

[[folder:Ben 10]]
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'':
-->'''Julie:''' Well, I'd better hit the shower.\\
'''Ben:''' Me too. Uh- I mean, uh...
*** In Albedo's debut episode,, we are treated to this delightful exchange between Kevin and Gwen while Ben and Albedo are battling:
---->'''Gwen:''' Find something to touch!\\
'''Kevin:''' Huh? (confusedly reaches hand toward Gwen before realizing what she actually means) Oh.
*** Just minutes before, Albedo rattles off a few downsides to being human (Ben specifically), ending with "scratching myself in places I suspect are inappropriate!"
** In another episode, the team is on the moon, using spacesuits originally meant for an [[GiantSpider Arachni]][[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys chimp]], meaning they have an extra set of arms.
--->'''Kevin:''' What am I supposed to do with the extra arms?\\
'''Ben:''' You never used to have problems using your arms. That's what the girls say!\\
'''Kevin:''' Which girls?
** Also, Rath, an [[MeaningfulName Apoplexian]], has an unusually large middle claw [[FlippingTheBird which becomes even larger when he's angry.]]
** In the second season finale, Azmuth revealed the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Highbreed]] are all [[spoiler: inbred and sterile.]]
* In ''[[Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', Zombozo and Kevin fight with mallets, with Zombozo declaring "Mine's BIGGER than yours!", and Kevin replying "It's not the size that matters, it's how you use it!"
** We got this gem in "Computer Games":
--->'''Humongosaur:''' Um, one of my balls fell off.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' episode "Busted" has Bloo, after an unsuccessful attempt to glue together Madame Foster's stone bust of herself together again using toothpaste after he breaks it, stating, "A bust this big needs ample support!"
** In a later episode, Coco tries to get a single room after Eduardo already asked for it. When Mr. Harriman claims that Eduardo needed it more, Frankie starts to object and is about to explain, why a girl can't share a room with three boys when the scenario just switches. Once we are back at Harriman's office, he's sweating and utters something along the lines: "I-I-I never knew there were so many... special "needs" for women.... Ms. Coco gets the room." Frankie Foster smiles delightful and a bit mischievous. We are left to guess, what she just told him about girls... Not that we couldn't guess.
* Not to mention that they slipped in these lines...
--->'''Bloo:''' No, sheets!
--->'''Mac:''' '''''BLOO!!'''''
--->'''Bloo:''' No, sheets. Sheets, ''bed'' sheets.

--->'''Wilt:''' Yeah, that's really sucking! (Referring to a vacuum cleaner sucking in Bloo)
--->'''Eduardo:''' *Sigh* There's no pleasing this guy.
* ''Joey to the World'' sadly didn't get past the radar (in one of the rare times that Cartoon Network's censors actually did do a competent job at monitoring content -- that wasn't found in a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon). The Cartoonstitute short was credited as being "created by Cartoon Network", and they were putting it as a candidate for a comedy series...sadly, theories have it that the creator didn't know he was supposed to produce something for ''children'', and the end result was something that would have had a nice home on Creator/AdultSwim.
* While ''IAmWeasel'' was cut from the same cloth as ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'', it was very light on dubious content. However, that isn't to say that the show was completely clean. The Red Guy from ''Cow and Chicken'' was still there and still had names that referred to his state of undress (Lance Sackless, Cleo-Pantless, Tallulah Bottoms, etc), the episode "I.R. Bush Pilot" has Weasel as an OB/GYN and a pilot (making the title one of the most sexual puns ever made on a Creator/CartoonNetwork show that ''wasn't'' on Creator/AdultSwim), and "This Bridge Not Weasel Bridge" had a line about a worker who was coming home to his wife and the son he never knew he had (possibly because his wife had him with another man).
* The obscure ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' has a few moments. For example, "Losing Lancelot" has Mike and Og going out on a boat to save Lancelot from sharks and Margery thinks the two are "too young to go out on a boat alone". Plus, we see Og run without his loincloth on in "Hot Couture" (though we only see his butt). Not to mention that the ''WhatACartoon'' pilot doesn't give backsides to Lu's bra and Og's loincloth.
* The [[ShortRunner nanoscopically short-lived]] series of shorts, Sunday Pants, might be seen as an example of the censors doing their job. However, twice, the word 'damn it' were shouted by characters, on prime time. It's arguable that the censors probably did this just for laughs and that the series was ending anyway. Since then, Sunday Pants has never been mentioned or even acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
