Added DiffLines:

*ChildrenAreInnocent: ''Because'' of this, the show's humor is so enjoyable. The interviewees prove this is not the case while showing, yet at the same time ''are'' sort of innocent as they just say what they think and mean no harm from it.


Added DiffLines:

*TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Like how it uses {{From the Mouths of Babes}}, the show also highlights responses that showcase or hint at this.


!!Exemplifies these tropes:
* CheatingWithTheMilkman: One of the interviewee would say this: "I don't look like my Mommy or my Daddy. I look like the mailman."

Added DiffLines:

1998-2000 Creator/{{CBS}} program co-hosted by Creator/BillCosby and Art Linkletter, based on the "Kids Say The Darndest Things" segments of Linkletter's famous 1945-1970 program, ''ArtLinklettersHouseParty''. Following the format that Linkletter created on the earlier show, he and Cosby would bring out a set of children between the ages of 5 and 10 and gently "interview" them to elicit innocently outrageous comments and observations. In both the original segments and the later show, typical ploys would include encouraging imaginative flights of fancy in the children's responses, and most subversively, asking them what they were told by their parents ''not'' to say.

The original ''House Party'' segments ultimately spawned several books that gave at least two generations of parents nightmares about the unexpected truths their children might utter.
