Is there even a radar now?

After that last episode? I think it's safe to say the radar has crashed and burned.

Does someone saying a word vaguely similar to a Russian expletive really count as getting Crap Past the Radar? It seems kind of silly and farfetched.

Nah, that'd be a Bilingual Bonus at best. No way it qualifies as this; "Vague similarity" is not the same thing as "actually being".

Wow, this page needs some trimming.

It's been almost two years and I agree, but I'm not bold enough to delete a bunch of stuff on my own. A lot of it (especially the season 1 stuff) seems more like the viewer's mind being in the gutter rather than an intentional wink-wink-nudge-nudge.

For example, the Pubator is pretty obviously a reference to puberty rather than pubic hairs (they have the same root and puberty makes more sense in context). The multi-bear by definition has heads all over his body... including his crotch, but no special reference is made to this and no potential visual pun is hinted at. Stan's nose is big so a cartoonish face of his made in pancake might be roughly the shape of a penis but how do we know this is supposed to be a joke instead of a consequence of his face shape?

A lot of the other ones seem really subjective, which I guess they have to be in order to get past the radar in the first place, but...

Is making reference to the Soviet Union an example of getting crap past the radar? When Rumble talked about fighting the Soviet Union's best fighter, I was like "wow, I didn't think I'd be hearing that in a cartoon on Disney Channel." But I wanted to confirm whether this was something children's programming is not allowed to do or if it's just a subject matter cartoons don't like to tread upon.

I think it's just not common because a lot of kids wouldn't get the reference. But it's not inappropriate.

No, it's not an example. At all.

I don't get how this line is getting crap past the radar. Could someone explain it to me?

Mabel: We should get two dodos and force them to make out!

Forcing anything to make out is questionable, sure, but I think the radar-dodging element comes in when you start to wonder WHY Mabel wants them to make out. I really don't know.

...Forcing them to breed, maybe?
