The creators of The Adventures of Bob believe in Defying The Censors and use many tricks to get the producers to let risque content through.
The producers want The Adventures of Bob to have a Periphery Demographic (read: appeal to older viewers as well as younger ones), despite that the censors want more kid-friendly material, and they find that the best way to do this is to use this trope.
"It's a good thing the network censors don't care what we say or do — within reason. Any other channel would have canceled us by now".
Defied: The creators take pride in the fact that their show is both wholesome and popular with kids and adults.
Discussed: "Why does every cartoon these days feel the need to push the envelope? Not every cartoon needs to be like Family Guy. Then again, if it weren't for overgrown cartoon fans and stoners, this show wouldn't have a fanbase at all."
