  • Regular Show has four instances of Mordecai reacting to seeing Margaret in various outfits and slightly sexual situations:
    • "Caffeinated Concert Tickets" gives us him immadiately cutting off his sentence and drooling when he sees Margaret in a shirt which shows some generous Sideboob.
    • "Mordecai and the Rigbys" has him gawking with his mouth gaping open and dropping the box he was holding when Margaret puts on one of his band's shirts (a bit hard to explain, here's a clip. Unfortunately it's in Spanish as all the English versions get removed).
    • "Slam Dunk" features a scene in which he stares at Margaret as she passes him on her bike, followed by a detailed shot of her butt.

  • The Mask has a perfect example of this (though it can also count as Show Some Leg, depending on how you look at it) in the episode "Flight as a Feather". After stripping two suicide belts off an exotic dancer named Cookie BaBoom (who crashed a ceremony held by the Mayor), The Mask sees Kellaway and Doyle coming to get him. The Mask then gets behind Cookie (who has been trapped in her own whirling dervish) and stops her so that way the front part of her naked body faces Kellaway and Doyle. The Mask escapes, Kellaway and Doyle melt like a Hershey's kiss on a hot skillet, and the Mayor smiles as he basks in the glow of his ex-girlfriend's humiliation. And this was all on a CHILDREN'S show (albeit one from the 1990s, when this kind of shock humor was in vogue).
