So, I have a question. Sonichu is a not safe for work webcomic that features gore and sex but is actually intended for kids (the creator is weird). So, would this be an inversion, a subversion or something else?

I noticed that no real life examples were given even though it didn't say no real life examples, please. I actually have one. On a Spring 1994 episode of the French show Jacky Show, singer/actress Mallaury Nataf performed her song "Fleur Savage" while wearing a short dress and no panties, and ended up flashing both sides, triggering a scandal.

What would the reverse of this trope be? For instance, something that appears grim and gritty on the surface and then turns out to be completely innocent at the end. Is there a term for that?

Suggested: Death To Smoochy plays this entire trope straight. Instead of a kind happy world of network television, childrens TV is depicted as a grim world of murder, corruption, and greed.
