Radar / The Amazing World of Gumball

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/598999849dd2813bf16e2287e5c613ba.jpg
"Thanks Gumball!" "Whatever, man."

In the grand tradition of a lot of original Cartoon Network programming from the late-1990s into the 21st century, this show freely pushes its TV-Y7 for fantasy violence (FV) rating to its limit, despite that Cartoon Network now allows the TV-PG rating on some of their daytime shows and the show's DVD releases in its native United Kingdom carry a PG certificate for the same things that net it a TV-Y7-FV on American television.

Whether the TV-Y7-FV rating on this show is a mistake or if the content really isn't strong enough to justify a TV-PG rating in the United States is best left debated among viewers. For now, just enjoy the crap that got past the radar, because there's a lot of it.


    open/close all folders 

    General 
  • Banana Joe frequently takes off his peel, sometimes even swinging it around, even though many other occasions make it clear that it's the banana equivalent of stripping and/or streakingnote . It was even in a promo and mentioned in "The Butterfly":
    Miss Simian: Joseph, we've been here before. When is it appropriate to take your skin off?
    Banana Joe: Uh...Christmas!
  • The word "nipples" is said numerous timeslike , a word Adventure Time was not allowed to say despite being higher rated (TV-PG) and on the same network.
  • Principal Brown's relationship with Miss Simian in general. On adult-oriented cartoons like The Simpsons (Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel) and Daria (Ms. Barch and Mr. O'Neill), whenever they have a teacher in a relationship with a principal or someone from teaching staff, they try to hide it, as they know that a relationship like that causes a conflict of interest and is usually frowned upon by the higher-ups. In the case of this show, Principal Brown and Miss Simian don't try to hide itnote . It's surprising that a kids' show features this kind of relationship with little to no consequences.
  • A recurring background character (for instance, in the line at the beginning of "The Pony") appears to be an anthropomorphic wad of feces.

    Season 1 
The Responsible
  • The "baby sitter" Richard found online and almost hired is depicted as a literal slimeballnote  who wants to sit on children. His name on the concept art is even "Albert the Pervert".

The Third
  • The plot for the episode seemed like it was about a ménage à trois or exploring the possibility of a polygamous relationship and, later, infidelity.
    Darwin: Three best friends? Won't that be a bit... weird?
    Gumball: It's only weird if we make it weird. Do you find it weird?
    Darwin: Not if you don't.

The End
  • At the beginning of the episode, Gumball and Darwin both sit on their couch lifelessly flicking through TV channels and eating junk food with red-rimmed eyes for the entire scene. It's clearly because they are sleep-deprived, but their conversation blatantly makes it look like they're stoned.
    Darwin: Can you think of any better way to spend our lives?
    Gumball: Dude...I can't even think. Is my heart still beating?
    (Darwin feels for a pulse. Six seconds pass before Gumball's heart starts beating again.)

The Dress
  • Gumball spends a good portion of the episode completely butt naked. Things get even weirder when he's about to go to school and his four-year-old sister is at eye level and looking at his exposed junk.
  • Gumball receives a letter from Darwin for date in the roller coaster and at the end there are three "X"s. For Gumball this "show how extreme it will be".
  • Gumball has an Imagine Spot that he and Darwin are married... and he's surrounded by cat/fish babies while Darwin comes home and yells, "I WANT MORE KIDS!" What really crosses the line with that scene is not only are they both children, but they're also both siblings through adoption.

The Spoon
  • Gumball makes a Mustache-Sausage.
    Gumball: How about a hot dog? Theyíre delicious! [His fake mustache falls off his face and lands on the hot dog, which he holds out to Doughnut Sheriff]
    Doughnut Sheriff: [disgusted] Ughh... Thereís a mustache on your sausage!
    Gumball: Yeah, itís our secret ingredient! [Gumball and Darwin wink at camera]
    Doughnut Sheriff: I think Iíll go for something without hair.
  • Following this metaphor, the episode becomes a bit weird when Richard starts licking the mustache-sausage and Nicole uses it to turkey-slap a man unconscious. If you listen to that scene with your eyes closed, it doesn't sound any less risqué.

The Pressure
  • The girls (falsely) brag about who got the older boyfriend, and Carrie says "Mine is so old that he doesn't have teeth."
  • Another example:
    Gumball: (while doing high dive to save Darwin from a girlfriend) On one hand, I create a diversion and save Darwin. On the other hand, I splash Penny and look like- *SMACK*
  • When Gumball falls in the swimming pool and ends with his body fully red, steals two ice creams and put them on his chest, looking like he has pointed breasts or a cone bra.
    Rocky: Hey, dude! Nice bikini!
    Gumball: [alleviated] Thanks.
  • Gumball and Darwin kiss off-screen accidentally and both are after so surprised, and Gumball describes it as "being run over by a unicorn". (On the season three episode, "The Name," it's revealed that they know who kissed who in that scene and don't mind that Gumball's Zack personality erased it.)

The Laziest
  • Richard tries to win the laziness contest by changing the TV to a shopping channel. On display is a figurine of a girl kissing a boy on the cheek, which is titled "Innocent Age Figurine Boy & Girl w/ secret object hidden by the boy".

The Ghost
  • The premise of the episode, Carrie repeatedly possessing Gumball to eat things and him trying to learn to turn her down, seems a bit strange if you think about it. The official episode descriptions for "The Ghost" didn't sound like it belongs to a kid's show.
    "The Ghost": Carrie the Ghost often uses Gumball's body but now he has to learn how to say "no" to her, which may prove to be an extremely difficult thing to do considering Carrie normally uses his body against his will anyway.
  • Darwin describes the situation to Gumball by saying Carrie "likes going inside your body".

The Prank
  • When Richard comes back from being stranded on a raft in the middle of the ocean, with only the raft covering him:
    Darwin: What happened to your clothes?
    Richard: I ate them. [Turns around, revealing his sunburned butt, and walks up the stairs back to his room]

The Party
  • While Gumball is searching for a date to the party, his observation of Teri (a bear made of paper) has a strange multiple meaning:
    Gumball: She's a little flat.
  • While the party is being busted wide open by Principal Brown and Ms. Simian, Alan motorboated two balloons.
  • Miss Simian and Principal Brown are making out in the closet when Jackie and Harold come homenote .

The Poltergeist
  • Mr. Robinson explains to Gumball and Darwin how he and his wife would argue, sometimes six times a day, sometimes in public, even once in their sleep! Anyone who is or was married or in a similar long-term committed relationship will recognize what he is really talking about.

The Mustache
  • Gumball, Darwin, and Anais accidentally take their Dad's testosterone supplements that he was going to use to impress his wife (and make his man-boobs stick up).

The Fight

    Season 2 

The Colossus

The Knights
  • Richard is forced to shower outside the house, and Penny and her father see him.

The Fridge
  • The Sausage Pen looks like a sex toy, isn't it? The finger's position is curious as well.
    Richard: Well, I invented... the Sausage Pen! Everything it writes is delicious.
    Nicole: Mmmm... innovative! But... ultimately useless.
    [Nicole puts Richard's face onto the cloud column, next to Darwin's, and Richard's face slowly changes from happiness to disappointment]
  • The abuse (played for laughs) Nicole puts Gumball through to make a winner out of him, most notably making him stand on the roof of the house during a lightning storm while holding a golf club and leaving him in the desert so he can walk home.

The Flower
  • Gumball's jealousy drives him to keep weed-killer and vandalized photos of Leslie in his locker, implying his jealous side was planning to murder Leslie (which he actually tries to do by attacking him with slugs).
  • During one of Gumball's tirades about Leslie, a long list of insults includes "self-pollinating." If you know anything about reproduction in flowers and plants, he basically just called Leslie a jack-off.
  • From the end of the episode:
    Gumball: Wait, did you just say he was your cousin?
    Penny: Well duh, everyone knows.
    Gumball: Well duh, I didn't.
    Leslie: There's a lot of things you don't know about me, Gumball.
    Gumball: Oh...

The Banana
  • Mr. Small's "herbal tea" gives him some adverse effects; most notably towards the end of the episode, where after taking a sip his eyes begin to get weird and his face gets all loose. After Gumball and Darwin leave, Mr. Small proceeds to let out a "WOO-HOO!", like that "herbal tea" is more enjoyable than it should be...
  • When Darwin is raiding Joe's locker, he pulls out a jockstrap and tells Gumball to chew on it. Neither addresses what it actually is, but Gumball looks at it with absolute disgust, and then he pretends to chew on it when he obviously is not and does not want to.
  • Darwin chews up Joe's pen from the locker. Later in the episode Joe says it's an heirloom his ancestor used and "I'm not even gonna tell you where he had to hide it to keep it safe", then Darwin starts wiping his tongue in disgust.

The Phone
  • Gumball silences a firecracker by sitting on it. Then he coughs up smoke, making clear that even if the thing itself didn't go up there, the explosion did.

The Job
  • Gumball and Darwin deliver a pizza to a couple of pizza-headed people, which they apparently consider to be their new child. As the father is paying Gumball, he accidentally drops the box while reaching for the money he gives them, which completely horrifies the couple. Even worse, Darwin slips on the "dead" pizza baby as they run away, further smearing its tomato sauce, or, as the pizza couple see it, blood, on the concrete.
  • When one of the reality-warping waves inverts everyone's gender (turning Anais and Nicole male and Gumball, Darwin, and Larry female), girl Larry has little cube breasts.

Halloween
  • A male ghost character phases his head through the girls' bathroom, making a girl to shout (we can't see anything).

The Skull
  • While Clayton is disguised as Principal Brown, Miss Simian seduces and almost makes out with him, not knowing how close she was to making out with a student.

The Bet
  • Gumball abuses his power over Bobert by sending him to the nurse's office with fire coming out of his butt, telling the nurse it's been happening ever since, "[I] fell in love with Your Mom," and making out with the wall defibrillator.
  • Bobert's picture equation written on the school football field: "Glasses + horse's ass = Principal Brown."
  • Miss Simian trying to warm up in the walk-in freezer by hugging a shirtless Gumball. Lampshaded when she says, "I'm sorry, Watterson. I know this is inappropriate, but I just need to warm up."

The Bumpkin

The Virus
  • "And he's making rude gestures at me with those little tentacles!"

The Storm
  • Alan the balloon explains to Gumball that his knot, the only orifice his body has, is used to breath, eat, and excrete. In a later scene (pictured above), Gumball has to "inflate" Alan in the school bathroom. Alan's knot deflates slightly, causing it to moving upward in a very questionable manner just before the scene skips to them then leaving the bathroom. Gumball has a traumatized look on his face while Alan has an incredibly happy look on his.

The Lesson
  • Principal Brown is shown to have a rather suggestive calendar he planned on giving Miss Simian. One picture has him laying on a bear skin rug, invoking the cliche of someone laying on such a rug naked.
  • It is implied that Gumball ate and then pooped out an entire rake, in one piece, to smuggle it.
  • A bear literally pops a cupcake's cherry during a detention riot, prompting this dialog.
    Gumball: Did you see what that bear did to that guy's cherry?

The Promise

The Voice
  • Gumball and Darwin offer Tobias a hug in the locker, but they're both wearing nothing but towels, so he refuses. The two then tackle him to try and force him, and eventually Darwin takes Tobias's towel and spanks him with it in the middle of the school corridor.

The Boombox
  • When Miss Simian orders everyone to get back to class after telling them that she's not retiring, Gumball grumbles, "Ah, curse word!"

The Castle
  • Harold likes touching things, including sticking his finger in Anais' mouth. Harold even gets thrown out the Watterson house for it, with someone yelling, "Hey, go poke yourself!".
  • Gumball, Darwin and Anais disguise themselves as a pizza delivery man to get back into their house full of party animals. Being at the bottom of the disguise, the way Anais hands over the receipt probably couldn't be any more wrong.
    Hot Dog Guy: Uh... you can keep it.

The Tape
  • "Hi, my name's Darwin Watterson, and this flim, and this fil, flim, ahh... Curse word!"
  • During the Wildlife Commentary Spoof, part of the name Gumball uses for Richard ("Moobus Gelatinous") is dog Latin for "moobs" ("man boobs").

The Sweaters
  • Gumball's butt is injured by a lightning-fast tennis ball, but he hurriedly claims it feels better the moment Mr. Small tries to massage it.

The Internet
  • One of the video remixes had Gumball's face on a bunch of roasted sausages when making a rather pained expression.
  • Gumball tries to enter the Internet by scanning himself without his clothes on. It doesn't work, but it does give Darwin a nice (high definition!) close up photo of Gumball's privates. Afterwards, Darwin tries to wash his eyes out with the showerhead.
  • The Internet tells Gumball and Darwin to "get bent", a phrase that's usually considered at least moderately profane (it's generally considered short for "get bent over and take it up the ass").

    Season 3 

The Kids
  • Larry threatens to kick Gumball and Darwin out of the store when their voices begin wrecking the merchandise. The security guard comes in and looks as if he's about to shoot them, but pulls out a baton (that goes limp) and the guard meekly replies that he can't do anything but ask them nicely to leave.

The Fan
  • Sarah makes a video and song about her stalking Darwin and Gumball. A lot of it portrays her attraction toward them as less like a child's crush and more like open sexual lust:
    • Staring at Gumball through the window while he was undressing; he saw this and closed the blinds while covering his chest with his arm
    • Watching them while hiding inside their closet
    • Looking at them, trying to nuzzle Gumball's hair, and taking pictures of them while they're unconscious
    • Standing around in the bathroom while Darwin takes a shower
    • Wearing some of Gumball's clothing and enthusiastically smelling others
  • Mr. Small seems to be high when staring at the painting that Sarah hides in. It doesn't help that he's carrying a mug (which may or may not have that herbal tea he drank on "The Banana") which is steaming (giving off an appearance similar to smoke) and laughing in a way similar to a stoner laugh after everyone is done screaming.

The Joy
  • When Ms. Simian zips up Banana Joe's peel, some of his "banana" gets stuck in the zipper, prompting a very painful looking reaction, reminiscent of that one scene in There's Something About Mary.
  • Miss Simian examines Gumball and Darwin in the nurse's office and throws a jar of yellow liquid at them when they advance on her. The nurse cries out, "That's not water." and pauses for a few seconds as we see the pair drenched in it, giving the impression that they're covered in urine... before clarifying that it's cough medicine.
  • When the Joy virus begins spreading, Rocky is in the locker room, spraying an Axe (or Lynx, since this show is from the UK and that's what Axe body spray is called there) body spray-type male deodorant on himself. The Band-Aid nurse (who has been infected with the Joy Virus) tackles him and Rocky says (before he's brainwashed as well), "Hey, this stuff really works!", thinking that the nurse is sexually attracted to him because of the spray.

The Recipe
  • There's a discussion where Gumball basically tells Darwin that, if they were a couple, he would be the one with the pants in their relationship.:
    Gumball: We have to do it exactly like they did!
    Darwin: Does that mean I have to wear a mustache and we should, you know, kiss?
    Gumball: Ehh, no. And for the record, I would be the one with the mustache.
  • The episode in general is almost ridiculously dark and violent:
    • It begins with Anton being disintegrated in the pool and falling to pieces in Gumball's hands as he tries to revive him, causing a horrified reaction from almost everyone present.
    • When Anton comes back the next day, Darwin and Gumball try to figure out how by hurting him in incredibly over-the-top ways, including slicing him into pieces with a paper shredder, inducing a heart-attack by shock, and tricking Tobias into eating him alive. These seem only slightly worse than the show's usual Amusing Injuries, until it revealed Anton actually died and was replaced with a clone all those times, as well as every time before this episode.
    • Darwin and Gumball start making their own clones and it gets even worse: Darwin mentions he accidentally caused his half of the clones to commit mass suicide, and Gumball almost does the same to the rest.
    • The evil clone turns the sprinklers on to turn the remaining clones to mush, before himself getting sucked down the pool drain and torn apart by the grate.

The Extras
  • One of the cardboard cutout people from "The Sweaters" tries to get his change out from another one's back pockets. However, they both have their arms frozen in place above their head, so the one going for said change ends up suggestively poking his face around the other one's butt.
  • The colorful bird does his mating dance for a black bird who turns out to be male — and tells him to continue the dance since it was actually good. Due to the homoerotic undertones, Cartoon Network's Latin American channel cut that scene.

The Fraud

The Void
  • Similar to the herbal tea drinking in "The Banana", Mr. Small explains how he's so good at navigating the crazy otherworldly dimension of the world's mistakes: he's "used to feeling spaced out."

The Boss

The Allergy
  • When he thinks that Darwin's ailment is worms, Gumball delivers this throwaway line:
    Gumball: Just squat over a bowl of milk and whistle till they come out.
  • The Band-Aid nurse prescribes herself a dose of heavy sedatives so she doesn't have to listen to Teri the bear latest worries over having an illness.

The Password
  • Gumball was under the impression that Richard loves and favors Anais so much that they finish each other sentences, which Darwin incorrectly interjects with "Sandwiches". Then it cuts to Anais letting Richard finish her sandwich, which leads to Gumball...
    Gumball: Sandwiches as well?! Aw man, this is total...*gestures at Darwin to finish*
    * beat*
    Gumball: *sigh*
    Darwin: SENTENCES!

The Shell
  • After Penny cracked the part over her eye, she, Gumball and Darwin stand on the porch to her house. Preparing to tell Penny's father what happened, Penny and Gumball stand faced to each other and wobble their tongues. When Penny's father comes out, he catches them, and looking from the angle where Penny's back is facing him, it looked to him is if they were French kissing.
  • Jackie (Tobias' mom) describes Penny in her red minotaur form as being a "cow on steroids".
  • Gumball walks in on Banana Joe watching a video of a peeled orange being spread apart, which to him is obviously supposed to be like porn. To really hammer it home, Joe has a box of tissues right next to his laptop.note 

The Burden
  • Miss Simian and Principal Brown's loud and obnoxious flirting after Miss Simian comes in and yells, "Romance, NOW!".note 
  • In the "It's Love" song, Gumball and Darwin are shown having a bath with "Chris Morris", sleeping in the same bed (Richard and Nicole's bed) and kissing him and laughing while bizarre pictures showing Brown depilating appear on the screen intermittently.note 
  • After checking about the alarm, Miss Simian says if she can continue with her romance week-end. Doughnut Sheriff puckers his lips and Miss Simian says: "Not you!".

The Bros

The Mirror
  • Gumball's says the word "damnation", though in the literal sense rather than a profane one (preferring a "life of damnation in limbo" to watching a home shopping channel).
  • The Snatcher/Carrie's dad unceremoniously falls out a window and dies (which seems bad at first, but now allows him to hug his ghost daughter).

The Man

The Lie
  • During the beginning showing everyone depressed in January, a black pigeon sighs despondently and hurls himself down the Wattersons' chimney.
  • Gumball tries to make up a description for Sluzzle Dude, a Santa equivalent for a holiday he made up, but his description comes off the wrong way.
    Gumball: He's got a beard, sneakers, and a leather coat.
    Darwin: Is that all he's wearing? Sounds like he should be running from the police.

The Butterfly

The Question
  • Gumball and Darwin have a G-Rated Drug trip after eating cereal marshmallows through their eyes. Gumball wakes up in a ballerina tutu and Darwin wakes up handcuffed with a tattoo on his butt. Special note for how said handcuffs are covered in red fuzz, which very specifically implies they're the kind of handcuffs used for sexual bondage and not the kind the police use to restrain criminals.
  • When Larry realizes he's wasted his life on nothing but work, he suddenly starts incessantly reciting his daily schedule while driving to the beach and swimming straight out to sea. It is a very strong possibility that he's trying to kill himself.

The Saint
  • Gumball breaks a computer in the library, and says he'll probably hanged and quartered, among other things, by the school librarian.
  • Gumball makes Alan out to be a cheater in front of Carmen by showing pictures of Alan (actually Darwin's face on a green balloon) kissing female students, male students, and a toilet. And while the photo of Leslie enjoying his kiss, unlike everyone else was cut before the episode aired (and has been shown that way on every international broadcast, including the North Americannote  version), a few frames of it can still be seen if you pause at the right time.

The Oracle
  • Darwin spills coffee on Gumball. Darwin cools him by inhaling air while Gumball puts his butt directly in front of Darwin's face and makes a very relieved expression. Marvin passes by and comments that "I don't know what you're doing, but you should be ashamed of it!"
  • In the prophetic painting, Gumball's crotch is obscured by a maple leaf. Later, as Gumball approaches the mall and starts noticing elements of the painting, he fixates at one point on a maple leaf - an anthropomorphic one, headed to the mall to shop. In the end, when Gumball decides that the prophecy is inevitable and tears off his clothes preemptively, Anais grabs the maple leaf and covers Gumball by throwing them onto his crotch.

The Safety

The Spoiler

The Countdown

The Triangle
  • Leslie advises Darwin to picture everyone naked in order to alleviate his performance anxiety, which works when he sees Juke (the boombox-headed kid) naked, but not Mr. Small. Especially when Mr. Small bends over in front of him to pick up the peas he knocked over and talks about how he used to play the bongos in the school band.
    Mr. Small: Hours and hours of slapping those skins made me the man I am today.

The Downer
  • When trapped in the darkness of his bad mood Gumball gropes what he thinks is the sofa, but when it's revealed that Gumball imagined everything that happened, it turns out it was Richard's man boobsnote .

The Egg
  • Gumball wears Pimp Duds because he misheard Nicole's order to wear something respectable as "to wear something that commands respect." He even does a pimp strut before Nicole orders him to stop.
  • As Nicole and Felicity are fighting off-screen, there's a pause followed by an barely-audible exclamation of disgust. Darwin and Gumball look very confused at what Richard describes as "territorial scent marking", implying one of the mothers (more likely Nicole, as the groan sounded closer to Felicity's voice) just urinated in public.

    Season 4 

The Return
  • Richard imagines himself in Hell with Gumball, Darwin, and Anais as "the demons of guilt" accusing him of being a bad father.

The Nemesis
  • While Rob is holding melons, Gumball says he found the thing that Rob misses for being an enemy, and Darwin says if they're "melons" (as in "testicles").

The Crew
  • In Gumball's vision of Marvin, Betty, and Donald as gangsta-rap style thugs, Marvin is shown wearing a pimp hat surrounded by money with two bitches (as in "female dogs," not the derogatory term for a woman) at his side.
  • After being bowled over by the fastest and heaviest of metal objects being attracted to him, a recently telepathic Gumball reminds Darwin to mind his language.

The Signature

The Gift
  • To put out a fire, Gumball and Darwin ask Masami to rain on it. Masami replies that she can't rain with people watching her.

The Parking
  • While Nicole is looking for a parking space in the garage, Richard and the kids sing "99 Bottles of Age-Appropriate Beverages on the Wall".
  • A doctor begins examining a patient, then the scene cuts to him throwing the Wattersons and their car out of the hospital. The Wattersons somehow managed to park their car inside the patient's rear end!

The Routine
  • Richard (with his Stripperiffic warrior costume showing a bit of his pectorals) tells Cartax to watch its language as it sinks in the asphalt swamp.

The Upgrade
  • Thanks to a faulty request on his Siri-style voice-activated personal assistant, Bobert marries off Alan and Leslie. Alan doesn't object (even though he's dating Carmen) and neither does Leslie (who was already labeled as Ambiguously Gay by most fans/viewers). To top it off, Leslie tells a confused Banana Joe that "You had your chance," before leaving with Alan.
  • The disc Gumball uses to downgrade Bobert to a version that actually works is labelled "BS 7". The letters presumably stands for "Bobert System", but given the episode is a very unflattering parody of Apple products and iOS (with a slight burn against Windows updates), it might also stand for "bullshit".

The Comic

The Hug
  • Gumball ends up inviting Hot Dog Guy to a sleepover. Anais tells Gumball that she's not going to be there to help him because, "You made your bed; now you gotta awkwardly lie next to a stranger in it."
  • While sleeping in the tent, Hot Dog Guy accidentally touches Gumball, so Gumball climbs on top of him to reposition his arm. Unfortunately, this wakes the Hot Dog Guy up, and they begin CUDDLING. While already it's questionable to cuddle with a stranger, the act is then shown from the outside of the tent, which may make it appear as if they are doing something else.note 
  • While Hot Dog Guy is using the school shower, Gumball turns the water temperature way down. When the Hot Dog Guy has come out, he's experienced some major shrinkagenote .

The Wicked
  • Mrs. Robinson switches the tags on two babies right before both pairs of parents pick them up. Both fathers pick up the baby the label says is theirs, notice the obvious resemblance between that baby and the other father, then start fighting each other.
  • While Darwin and Gumball investigate Mrs. Robinson past, they find one picture where she happily sits on a boat as her brother drowns and another where she's standing outside Elmore Junior High as it burns down and firefighting LEGO men are called to put out the blaze. Gumball's line "Yeah, probably the last [day] for a few others", implies that some people died in the fire.

The Traitor
  • When looking for clues at Joyful Burger, Gumball realizes that the stuff on Alan's plate isn't ranch dressing because his feelings of guilt were too much for his weak stomach. The restaurant patrons are disgusted until Gumball explains that he meant that Alan used the light dressing instead. Gumball then berates them for having dirty minds.
  • The biological diagram of Alan's body makes it very explicit that his knot is his anus: it shows a human's lower digestive system overlapping his body and the part that leads to the knot is labelled "colon". In the scenes immediately following:
    • Another diagram shows an organ transplant simply involves shoving your hand into his body and pulling the organ out. Gumball does exactly that.
    • As in "The Storm", Alan requires re-inflation, but Darwin doing so is on-screen this time. A doctor bursts in, demanding an explanation, sees them in the act, then quickly exits with a disgusted look on his face.
    • A side-effect of the surgery causes Alan's mother to start literally talking out of her ass.
      • The episode ends in that way:
    Alan: What the... !? Is she talking out of her backside now?
    Gumball: Oh, nothing is ever good enough for you, is it! MISTER PERFECT!! Since when did you have a surgeon's licence!? Oh but please! Judge away! Looking down from your high horse, making everyone feel like—- (episode ends)

The Origins (parts one and two)
  • It looks like Richard and Nicole both got the idea to get Gumball a pet, but when they both say their idea, Richard says his is to go back in time to make sure we never... then quickly cuts himself off with a nervous laugh saying he was totally thinking of the pet idea. It's obvious he was going to say they should prevent Gumball from being conceived, possibly by stopping themselves from having sex unprotected.

The Signal
  • When Gumball is about to try and grab the steering wheel to stop the runaway car, Darwin is about to explain why that's not a good idea, only for the glitching to cause cutaways to a claymation car crash, a headache commercial showing a diagram of a human brain, and a watermelon exploding.

The Love

The Nest
  • In Anais' natural history book, the trionyx turtle's Latin name is "occidere machinae ex infernum". Translated, it means, "Killing machine from Hell".
  • During the baby turtles' attack on Elmore, one of them bites the groin of the green goblin Chanax CEO as he's taking a shower.

The Points

The Night
  • In his dream, Hector points out that in real life, he's too big to wear clothes, so he's always "naked and just hoping nobody looks up!"
  • Teri dreams she is naked in school.
  • Daisy dreams Anais is a doll (but clearly still alive) which she abuses under the guise of playing with her. This includes shoving Anais's head underwater, hanging her off the side of car to drag her face along the road, and ripping her in a tug-of-war with another doll.

The Misunderstandings
  • The hairy homeless guy makes a comment that causes Gumball to question if the man is wearing any clothes under his trenchcoat. The man responds, "I don't know, am I?!" and pulls the coat off. Gumball was clearly expecting to be flashed, as he closes his eyes and screams until he sees the man is fully clothed.
  • Gumball stands up to the LEGO construction workers by giving a hand gesture they guess is "the Vulcan gang sign" and whose meaning he admits to not knowing. He appeared to be crossing his middle/ring finger over his pinkie, but the perspective makes it look alarming close to Flipping the Bird.
  • The LEGO construction workers seem to be giving Construction Catcalls and insults, but were really just making bad attempts at sincere compliments. The initial attempts to correct this come off as even more lecherous, including a Wolf Whistle and drawn out "Nice" ("That just went from 'uncomfortable' to 'unacceptable'.") When they try again at the mall, their tone sounds outright seductive and stalkerish, drawing a comparison to "...the last thing the victim hears in a horror movie." Gumball also narrowly averts an even worse debacle:
    Gumball: You guys really need to get out more.
    Red Worker: You're right. We need to hang out with some other people, but where?
    Blue Worker: The mall?
    (other workers agree)
    Gumball: Definitely not the mall! That's where I'm going.
    Blue Worker: Schools?
    Gumball: Ugh... alright, the mall.

The Roots
  • Gumball, Richard and Anais rush to destroy several electronic devices once they find out Nicole knows how to search their browser history.
  • We get a nice dose of bloodless carnage when Richard decides to eat fish hooks and drink salt water, uttering, "I love the way salt water stings my insides," before passing out.
  • During the hurricane of fish puns, Gumball tells Darwin "Minnow you've been giving us a lot of carp about this whole fish thing..."

The Slap

The Detective

The Fury
  • Gumball makes a Catch Phrase variation, "What the actual what?", which is clearly based on the phrase "What the actual fuck?"
  • Attenttion is drawn to Nicole's butt when Yuki comments on how big it is.
  • Yuki tries to piss off Nicole by sexually harassing Richard in front of his whole family. She hits on him despite his obvious discomfort, grabs a piece of his flab, and sticks her legs up in front of him to keep him from walking away.

The Scam
  • Darwin's crush on Carrie includes a rather questionable interest in being possessed by her:
    Carrie: (blushing) So, Darwin. Do you mind if I use your body?
    Darwin: (nervous murmurs)

The Disaster
  • Gumball and Rob are literally wrestling for the remote and accidentally change the music to a "romantic" jazz tune. Gumball comments "Is it me or does this music give a whole different vibe to the situation?"
  • As soon as Gumball grabs the remote:
    Rob: (in slo-mo) Give me that remote you little-
    Gumball: (presses the shut down button)
    Rob:(collapses)

    Season 5 

The Rerun

The Stories
  • Principal Brown pretends to be cheating on Ms. Simian with the Nurse and that it resulted in an unplanned pregnancy—his.

The Guy
  • Gumball encourages Josh to rag on a man by saying he wears a big hat to compensate for... Josh doesn't guess right.
  • One of Gumball's suggestions to force Josh to be Anais's friend again is to sneak into the locker room and blackmail him with nude pictures.

The Boredom
  • After Gumball sits on the floor too long, his butt grows roots. Darwin pulls him out of the ground, and we see the roots coming right out of his crotch. This prompts a dialogue blatantly speaking of them as if they were pubic hair. It's even shot with both their mouths offscreen, as if the editors expected the lines to be redubbed or muted out on most international versions and didn't want to risk the lip sync not matching up:
    Darwin: Ew... you're gonna have to wax that.
    Gumball: Nah, it's OK, I'll just prune it.
  • During Gumball and Darwin's walk to find something interesting in the neighborhood, a lawn mower runs over Principal Brown's lower half, he shouts out in panic, and his entire lower half is left pixellated.
  • Harold accidentally pulls Miss Simian's clothes off in public after slipping on some mayonnaise, looks down at her naked body (covered by a headless mannequin), and vomits inside the Hexagon Lady's purse (with the vomit partially obscured by Neckbeard drinking water from a water fountain).
