Sometimes you notice something that is so shockingly, inappropriately out of place, you're left wondering "How did they get away with that?" Surely, someone — be it a producer, an oversight board or other Radar Systems
— would have said "You've crossed the line!"
Getting Crap Past the Radar refers to instances when a writer, artist or other creator sneak something in that that it is shocking not only to the Media Watchdogs
and Moral Guardians
, but to everyone else. Often, what makes it shocking is not the specific content, but that it is out of keeping with its context. As such, most examples are found in materials aimed at children. A lewd joke in South Park is to be expected, but not in The Wiggles.

Jokes that go over children's heads go under Parental Bonus
Jokes about literal crap can be found under Toilet Humor
When creators make no attempt to hide the material and basically march back and forth with a large sign that says "Inappropriate material found here!" you have a case of Refuge in Audacity
If the creators include something as a distraction from the potentially objectionable material they actually want to include, that's a Censor Decoy
