I believe that some of the examples on the page were just Accidental Innuendos or otherwise too mild to be considered Getting Crap Past the Radar, so I did a slight clean-up of the page. Here's what I removed, with explanations for why I did so in bold:

  • One of the most hilariously obvious innuendos in the series is that the Krusty Krab is located in Bikini Bottom. Probably Accidental Innuendo, considering that the show likes to use aquatic terms anyways.
    • Well, SpongeBob does live in Bikini Bottom and is super absorbent... get it? A yellow sponge to be exact. See above.

  • Fans take notice about how Squidward's eyes and nose resemble (how to put this delicately) male crotch parts. Maybe that's why most Bikini Bottomites think he is ugly, and why he doesn't wear pants. Belongs under Unfortunate Character Design.

  • Entries under the "Your Shoe's Untied" entry:
    • They actually got away with it a SECOND time in "Rise and Shine". Only this time it apparently was on the news. Interpret that how you will... It merely featured the stock video of the sea anemone; unlike the "Your Shoe's Untied" example, there's no innuendo associated with the video.
    • And in The Lost Episode, you can see it AGAIN when Patchy is flipping channels. See above.

  • Entry under the "Something Smells" entry:
    • In another part, SpongeBob says "Hi" to a mailfish, who smells his breath, and his face cracks to reveal another person underneath...which cracks off to reveal a female fish, who has obvious female parts. It was just an absurd joke; the fact that there was a female fish underneath probably isn't significant.

  • Entry under the "Artist Unknown" entry:
    • "If I'm lucky, Mr. Talent will rub his tentacles on my art." Accidental Innuendo; Just the mention of tentacles rubbing against something isn't enough to be considered a hentai reference.

  • During "Sponge Guard on Duty", surely there could have been another place for SpongeBob and Patrick to pull at their shorts to check their tan lines. It is an interesting observation, but it's probably not an intentional attempt at Getting Crap Past the Radar, and was probably much too mild for the censors to care.
    • As well as when a fish tells Patrick to put his gut away as there are children on the beach. He probably said that because the sight of Patrick's overweight stomach would be too unsightly for the children, rather than referencing Patrick's crotch.

  • There is a background character that takes this WAY BEYOND Up to Eleven. He has an appendage not usually seen on fish... note  Belongs under Unfortunate Character Design.

  • The palms on the glove-shaped rollercoaster seats in "Tunnel of Glove" look like butts. Butt-related humor isn't really considered too offensive by the radar, as far as I know. Also, it was most likely unintentional anyways.

  • Entry under the "Demolition Doofus" entry:
    • But to her credit, Spongebob pretty much crippled her for life (or so they thought), made insulting jokes about it, and even before this happened he was a cause of various levels of torment for her in general, so one can take it as it being the final straw for her. Natter, and also not related to Getting Crap Past the Radar.

  • "Nature Pants" had SpongeBob running around in the nude majority of the episode, though they lampshaded it by having his crotch sometimes covered. Kitchen sponge nudity is probably too mild to be considered Getting Crap Past the Radar.

  • "No Free Rides" has this gem. "See you next Tuesday!" Definitely an Accidental Innuendo.

  • Let's not forget the Mondegreen in Chocolate With Nuts where it sounds like Patrick tells that fish to "eat sperm". It's just a Mondegreen, as the example itself points out.

  • Entry under the "Chum Bucket" entry:

  • In "A Friendly Game", at one point, SpongeBob yells "Where did our balls go?!?" Accidental Innuendo; the double meaning wouldn't really make much sense.

I'm not getting what the image is supposed to be. All I see is Squidward and a cape.

Just did a major purge of examples that weren't really examples of this trope. There may be more still on the page, as there were some cases where I couldn't remember the context of the quotes so I left them alone. Someone else should do a once-over.

What's with the page image? It just doesn't scream Getting Crap Past the Radar to me.

This page needs a cleanup.

Seriously, most of the examples here sound less like a Double Entendre and more like Accidental Innuendo. Like, for example, one person mentioned "Spongebob humping the air in the April Fools episode". These people are just taking innocent lines and making them sound dirty out of context.

Agreed. It does really need a massive overhaul.

Still in desperate need of a cleanup. I'm going to start going through this and getting rid of anything that isn't really an example of Getting Crap Past the Radar.

Does nobody remember Patrick specifically mentioning a panty raid in the episode where Krabs was going through a midlife crisis? He says it not once, but twice. And then they actually go on it and Krabs gets this huge pair of panties...which turn out to belong to his mother!

I couldn't believe they got that one past the radar...

In Imitation Krabs, when Spongebob rips off an apparently prosthetic head of a fish...

"Everyone at the head enhancement clinic said nobody would notice! *cries*"

That isn't really that dirty, unless you take it that way. Now, if it was a word that sounded like breast...
