Canada has a fairly lax rating system compared to what the United States has, though, considering that the show was on Cartoon Network for a time, it wasn't that different from what aired in Canada — besides some edits for language (both bad language and to Americanize the slang). Here's what Cartoon Network didn't catch/care to catch:

Total Drama Island
Geoff's biography blatantly states that he was conceived on a beach.
"Not So Happy Campers - Part 1":
Duncan flirting with Heather:
Duncan: What are the sleeping arrangements? (points to Heather) Because I'd like to request a bunk under her.
Cody tries to win over Gwen so that he can get her bra and win a bet. Gwen rejects him, but gives him one as a reward for helping her get together with Trent. Then later, when Owen asks him how he got it, Cody's reply?
"A gentleman never kisses and tells!"
Owen, when in a canoe with Heather for a challenge, gives us this gem:
Heather, in an attempt to stop Harold from winning a challenge by untying a rope attached to the jet ski she's driving gets her tube top snagged on a tree branch. She isn't wearing anything underneath. To add injury to insult, she is then pulled completely off by the momentum of the jet ski. Harold is so distracted by her chest he crashes, loses the challenge, and is eliminated by the end of the episode.
Harold: I loved, I lost, and I saw BOOBIES! What more could a man want?
You've gotta wonder what happened to the censors when you consider Trent gets away with saying "hell". Granted, he was referring to it as the place, but still.
A gag in the episode involves a bear finding a place to eat marshmallows, in one of said gags, he hid in an outhouse. After the outhouse is destroyed with him in it, an extremely quick scene shows a front shot of the bear hiding the marshmallows behind him while some are seen falling to the ground after the bear hides them behind his back, all while shaking
"Brunch of Disgustingness":
Leshawna grabbing her own boobs while insulting Heather for being flat chested.
After consuming an assortment of bizarre food, the campers are served relatively normal looking meat balls.
Owen: Alright, meatballs! (begins eating)
Chris: Technically, you're right. But these are kinda special. Chef?
Chef: It's beef testicles, borginon!
(camera cuts to an ox holding its head and groaning in pain)
Leshawna: Oh, oh, oh, TELL me the macho mama with butt-cheeks tighter than my weave did not just say that!
"Who Can You Trust?":
A blindfolded Chris tries to hit an arrow being balanced on DJ's head using a crab apple and a slingshot but ends up accidentally hitting an important part of DJ's anatomy instead. Normally this wouldn't be so bad, radar-wise, but when Chris realizes that he missed his target...
Gwen is climbing a rock wall in a race against DJ, Heather had attached an extra rope to Gwen's shorts, pulling on it when she had climbed higher than DJ, giving everyone there a nice view. She then catches the now ripped pants before exclaiming "screw it" and climbs the rest of the way in her underwear (more panty shot) winning the challenge and cheering with her pants held in the air before realizing she's giving everyone an even better view, swearing "crap" and covering herself up.
"Hook, Line, and Screamer":
Owen: Owen's not getting to second base, is he?
(Izzy shakes her head)
Owen: I didn't think so. First base?
(Izzy shakes her head again)
Owen: Is he getting up to bat?
(Izzy punches him)
In "Camp Castaways" Chris mentions using props from a movie called "Bigassic Park" to design the deserted island. Yes, the film was called Bigassic Park.
"I Triple Dog Dare You!"
Owen has to give a purple nurple to a sleeping bear. The moment isn't actually seen, but when Owen exits the cave, there's a shot of the bear rubbing its chest area.
For most of the episode, Chef is wearing a pink dress. A pink, see-through dress. And you can see his underwear through it. And they didn't bother to use Barbie Doll Anatomy. They got away with showing a guy's dick on national television, on a program for kids!
There was an episode where Duncan, Geoff and DJ tricked Harold into eating his underwear by disguising it as a sandwich. Harold says it's the worst thing he ever tasted. This is his underwear, and he described it as tasting like sweat and lotion.
Chris falling on a pole and using a special effect to look like he got impaled by it. Graphically. This, combined with a - simulated, of course - Dies Wide Open, results in what may be the most gratuitous instance of gorn in a kids' show.
Harold's attempt at a compliment.
Harold:(to Leshawna) You're like Albert Einstein, but with better hair...and (creepy face) girly bits. (wiggles fingers suggestively)
In "Mutiny on the Soundstage" when Duncan and Beth are tied up:
Heather and Gwen's rivalry being described as an epic hate-on during "Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special".
The episode "Million Dollar Babies" gave this one from Lindsay:
Lindsay: Okay, so he meant seeded like sport seeding, I knew that! But, if there were a gardening challenge, I'd totally kick butt! Nobody can even touch mytomatoes! (beat, as she suddenly realizes what she said)
In the Latin American dubbing of this same episode, after Courtney defeats Duncan in wrestling, she says 'I'm the champ at wrestling in balls'. In Mexico and other Latin American countries, saying 'In balls' is slang for 'in the nude'.
Total Drama World Tour
"Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1":
Chef: Chris is such an idiot. ...Why's the PA still on? Oh, sh- (PA cuts off)
Not to mention calling the contestants "fruitcakes" for the singing.
Chris introduces Alejandro as being able to "charm the pants off" any living creature. Think about it.
Ezekiel says "What the shizzle?". Anybody familiar with Snoop Dogg speak most likely know what this means.
The writers have snuck crap past the radar with Alejandro's Gratuitous Spanish at least once, having him say, "malditos incompetentes" which means "damned incompetents".
"Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 2" had a mating song that nearly killed the radar.
Alejandro:(singing) Scarabs, get busy now.
This deleted scene from "Broadway, Baby!" has Cody falling into the Statue of Liberty's boobs and almost dying. Unfortunately cut from the US version, but still very radar-shattering.
Chef: But what a way to go!
"Bridgette, will you kiss this pole?"
Noah's line during the sausage-making challenge in "Slap Slap Revolution". Made hilarious by the size of the two's relationship in fanon:
Noah:(snickers) Cody's got a tiny sausage!
Not to mention the position of said sausage.
"The Am-AH-Zon Race" didn't just kill the radar, it killed it, slept with its wife, shot its dog, stole its car and then killed it again.
Owen says that Alejandro might slightly not totally like him, and that hitting him in the face didn't help...
No wonder Noah's cousins aren't allowed to watch this show!—one of Noah's only two confessional uses ever was used to lampshadeGetting Crap Past the Radar. And then Owen had one a minute later for no other purpose than to echo that Lampshade Hanging. Obviously the writers are very comfortable about their current situation with the censors.
"I See London" absolutely slaughtered the radars. To wit:
Alejandro and Heather are using their walkie-talkies and get annoyed with one another.
Heather: Guess what? I can just turn you off! Alejandro: Of course you can, you’re an expert at turning people off!
Total Drama Revenge of the Island
From the same episode, Sam complains he's overstimulated. Scott then trips into him and falls on his back, and the giant spider webs them together. Scott gives him an awkward look while Sam says "Yep...definitely overstimulated..."
When Scott enters the boys' cabin covered in dirt (from being chased down by mutant animals and searching for the immunity idol) the other guys ask why he's dirty. He says something along the lines of, "Just had a morning make-out session with one of the ladies." And then when they ask which girl it was...
In "Pahk'd with Talent", Sugar calls the song she performs a "Craptry" due to combining "Country" with "Rap". The name really fits considering how the song came out.
In the finale, Dave accidentally makes a prostitute joke while talking about helping Sky win the prize money.
Dave: The boy gets the girl, the girl gets the money... that sounds wrong.
In "Sky Fall", Sky tells Sugar at the beginning of the challenge to hurry up because Chris likely rigged booby traps all over the mountain. Sugar promptly explodes in a fit of laughter, both while running with Sky and in the confessional.
