The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope?

2 Apr 20th, 2017 at 11:11PMMy question is the name of the trope for when (as it says in the title) where a creative piece is hiding a dark meaning behind what is at first portrayed as perhaps, innocent childlike, or happy? There are many Youtube videos online with dark interpretations to classic children cartoons, this can be viewed as an example of this. The clearest example would probably be the cartoon Adventure Time as from the onset, we are aware everything is not entirely right from tiny clues left to us by the creators.
