Dirty Kid

Go To

Near opposite of the Dirty Old Man or Dirty Old Woman, where a kid is ridiculously young, but still has some signs of… "interest".

What's most notable is that often, kids or babies are allowed to cop a feel, simply because it's said that they don't understand what they're doing.

Note that there seems to be some level of Double Standard, since most of the examples seem to be male.

See also Kidanova, which deals more with the romantic aspects, as opposed to the sexual ones. Fille Fatale is for a female child acting sexually promiscuous. The Dirty Kid is most likely to grow up into a Hormone-Addled Teenager, and in aggregate (depending on their gender), fall into the All Men Are Perverts and All Women Are Lustful categories.

Not to be confused with The Pig Pen, who is filthy in a different way.

This is Truth in Television for those who have reached the onset of puberty and are exploring their bodies, as they want to give themselves a rite of passage to sexual maturity in the future and have children of their own, although this can usually happen earlier than expected, for better or worse. It's also worth noting that sexuality manifests itself at a very young age; however, any Real Life examples are simply off-limits.

  • In contrast with his notoriously Chaste Hero anime counterpart, 10-year old Ash in The Electric Tale of Pikachu is just as big of a perv as Brock and likes to drool over girls.
  • Dai Daichi from The Family's Defense Alliance. Whether being the continuous skirt lifts he gives to his teacher in every episode or the fact that he has a naughty picture collection in his room, Dai definitely plays this trope straight. The opening of the show even has him groping all the female characters of the show (two being part of his family) often resulting with violent repercussions.
  • Gravion:
    • Anya, one of the three Token Mini Moes. Best exemplified in the episode where she and some of the older maids have Eiji trapped in a game of Strip Poker.

  • All of the boys in Maicchingu Machiko Sensei fit this trope but particularly Kenta, who is often the ring leader of the boys and works out several plots to grope, disrobe, or otherwise act pervy to the eponymous Miss Machiko (or their female classmates). Seriously. While his comrades have some standard, Kenta live just to sexually harass every cute female in the show with Machiko as primary objective.

  • Naruto:
    • Both Konohamaru (eight) and Naruto (twelve). In the second episode, Konohamaru and Naruto get kicked out of a store for reading adult magazines.

    • Pre-timeskip Sakura shows some signs of this.
  • In the manga adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Link uses his small Minish size to look up a woman's dress.
  • In Mushoku Tensei Rudeus is very much this from infancy to his teen years due to being the reincarnation of a rather dirty otaku. This is largely overlooked by others not because he's a child, but because he's a Greyrat, everyone of whom has weird tastes. As as an infant is noted to always feel for the breasts of whoever picks him up. So long as they're female it's fine, but if it's a man he immediately starts crying.
  • One Piece has Momonosuke from the Punk Hazard Arc. He uses his cuteness to get away with ogling the Straw Hat ladies' breasts and get to sleep in the ladies bedroom with them. And to protect him from the insanely jealous Sanji, Brook, and Kin'emon while taunting them by hoggling Nami's breasts.

    Comic Books 
  • Cliff Baker, son of Buddy Baker alias Animal Man, was really happy when his family take care, for a brief period, of Starfire. He also gets a photo of her sleeping in their bed to make his friends jealous because he has a "totally hot alien princess" in his home.
    Cliff: (upon finding Starfire unconscious on his doorstep) "Wow, she's like ET — but with double DD's! Can we keep her?"
  • Jose, Von Reichter's clone-son from Cybersix is a depraved rapist trapped in a 7 year old's body. Even in the Lighter and Softer animated series he often gets rather… grabby around beautiful women.
  • Konstantinopel from De Kiekeboes is also less innocent than in his earlier appearances. He is in love with an older woman in Schiet Niet Op De Pianist and at times intentionally makes sexual remarks.
  • The main character of Le Petit Spirou. He goes towards a magazine store to buy adult magazines and is in love with his sexy math teacher (pictured). Hell, even just looking at the cover art of the collected editions gives you a brief indication that he's sexually attracted to older women. A repeated gag is the kids trying to ogle naked women, from buying porn mags to spying on Vertignasse's older sister in the shower or the teacher skinny-dipping.
  • Titeuf of the comic book named after him. Quite often, he makes sexual remarks and makes works that have sexual references (whether or not intentional).
  • The Hiro Okamura incarnation of Toyman has a bit of a dirty mind, considering Superboy and Robin discovered he's create robot duplicate versions of their female Teen Titans teammates and once Power Girl is sent to distract him. This got carried over to the Animated Adaptation of Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, where he tried to use x-ray goggles on her.
  • Hilde in Journey into Mystery, who simply grins with pleasure upon seeing a fully naked Thor out of bed in the middle of a situation while everyone else covers their eyes.
  • Eddie Puss in "The Complex Adventures of Eddie Puss" by Chris Savino (that Chris Savino). As seen by his name he has a strong... preference towards his mother and constantly tries to one-up his dad (such as getting his mom to breastfeed him when his dad wanted to fool around) or peeping at her.
  • Jeremy, the best friend of the title character of The Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius, tends to be obsessed with seeing girls naked. Barry lampshaded this in "How the West was Weened" when he tested a teleporter on Jeremy and Jeremy expressed interest in using it to beam himself into the girls' locker room.
    Barry: It wounds me a little when I show you a new invention and you immediately think with your dick...

    Fan Works 
  • In Break Your Heart, Scootaloo is definitely one.
  • In Grim Tales from Down Below, Junior's part-ghost half-sibling, Manny, already has a thing for boobs despite clearly being a pre-teen. Then there's first thing Manny thinks of doing after discovering that ghosts can turn invisible is to go streaking. On the other hand, he's still in his Girls Have Rabies phase and is thus repulsed when girls his age touch him.

    Films — Animated 
  • Neil Downe from ParaNorman. He watches his mom's exercise tapes and he likes to freeze frame the parts with the aerobics instructor.
  • Baby Herman from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He complains, at one point, about having "a fifty-year-old lust, and a three-year-old dinky." and even pass under a woman's dress while having a look (or worse) when leaving to his trailer. In a subversion, Baby Herman is really that old, he just looks like a baby. The character he plays as in the shorts may have elements of this, though, with Roger finding an adult magazine (complete with centerfold of Jessica) in his carriage at some point.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • In the TV movie Atomic Twister, a teenage girl asks the little boy she's babysitting if he wants to do anything, as they are stuck in the house due to the weather. The boy gets out the game Twister, which she appears to accept as innocent fun, but it's obvious the boy is enjoying the physical contact the game involves.
  • Curtis one of the three killer kids from Bloody Birthday is very perverted, he spies on his friend's older sister while she changes, looks at pornographic magazines, and he murders a couple after watching them have sex.
  • In telling his origin story, Don Juan De Marco claimed to have started out this way (but he was lying).
  • Night of the Demons (1988) has a weird example in that the main character's younger brother is the one perving on her. He is introduced hiding in her closet while she changes so he could jump out to scare her. By the time he leaps out of the closet, she is in a see-thru bra and a skirt with no panties. He delights in the view and tells her she has "Bodacious boobies", then runs off.
  • Freddie from Splash was a pervert even as a child. He would drop coins and lean down to pick them up — and look.

  • In John R. Powers' The Last Catholic in America, we're introduced to one of Eddie Ryan's fifth-grade friends, Felix "The Filth Fiend" Lindor, thusly:
    Felix Lindor had enough dirt in his mind to apply for statehood. He had to have gone through puberty during his preschool years because he was already a dirty old man by the time he got to the first grade. He constantly made snide remarks about “Dick and Jane,” and once when we were talking about “Superman,” Felix told me what he’d do if he had X-ray vision.
    • In the sequel, Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?, Felix the Filth Fiend returns, this time attending the same high school as Eddie. Of course, since he's now a teenager, his character doesn't really qualify for this trope, but Eddie, the narrator, does mention:
    Felix the Filth Fiend Lindor started taking an interest in the opposite sex the moment he realized which one he was opposite. Before he was old enough to attend school himself, he was already hanging around playgrounds with his pockets full of candy. In grammar school, during a civics class, the nun once asked Felix what would be the first legislative act he’d pass if he were a congressman. Felix said he’d outlaw slacks.
  • Oberyn Martell from A Song of Ice and Fire had his first child when he was about 12.
  • Bill Bryson recounts quite a few instances of lewdness in the memoirs of his childhood the Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.
    • Once, after he and his youthful partners in crime built a tree house, they immediately used the opportunity to strip in front of each other. He recalls how he himself particularly wanted to see one rather pretty girl do it, but who would always leave when they started, himself them following her, pretending to be equally disgusted. She them, to his dismay, only did it when he was on holiday visiting his grandparents - out of respect to him, no less.
    • Another instance was after his discovery of his dad's Porn Stash, mostly including pictures of woman whom he describes he would pay not to see naked, due to his dad's frugality, but which were very popular among his peers. The included annotations and missing cover when he returned them were never mentioned by his father.
    • He remembers his friend Willoughby's magnifying lens stock depleting suddenly when Playboy allowed models to show pubic hair.
    • An earlier and somewhat of a defied instance involved his older sister and him (he was six at the time). In order to see a movie without her parents knowing, she had volunteered to babysit him, and on the way there she told him that people in the movie would be having sex. A very grown-up sounding explanation later, he understood it as being a man putting a thing in a woman's thing ("His hat in her hatbox?"), leaving it there for a bit, and then their having a baby. The movie turned out (to him) to involve a lot of people talking to tables and curtains, making it a bit of an anticlimax.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Frederick Crane, on Frasier, grew up in a state of mutual adoration with Daphne Moon.

  • Ko in Gosei Sentai Dairanger. One of his favorite hobbies is grope Rin's breasts or, alternatively, flip her skirt. He stopped doing those things within five episodes of his introduction. But because those five episodes were chock full of instances of him doing it, and because what he did was completely inexcusable, he's become mostly known for this in retrospect.
  • One episode of House featured a young boy who was quite… interested… in Cameron, pinching her butt and attacking Chase when he displayed his "interest" in her as well. Turns out, the father's testosterone cream had rubbed off on his kids, causing his 8-year-old son to experience puberty and all the psychotic hormone changes that brings.
  • How I Met Your Mother:
    • Lily is a kindergarten teacher; in the pilot episode she comes home with a painty handprint on her (white) shirt. Three guesses where.
    • A later episode shows Lily and Marshall debating names for their upcoming child, looking for something gender-neutral that Lily won't associate with an obnoxious kid in her class. They settle on 'Jamie', but the next day she comes to the bar angrily with similar handprints, and says "NOT JAMIE!"
  • A Chappelle's Show sketch was a Gender Flipped spoof of the movie What Women Want called "What Men Want", with the entire premise being that there's only one thing that men want.

    Web Original 

    Western Animation 
  • The Amazing World of Gumball: Sarah is a Loony Fan of Darwin and Gumball whose obsession is at times blatantly sexual, especially compared to the much-more-innocent attractions shown by the other children (or even most of the adults). This includes smelling Gumball's clothes, hiding in Darwin's bathroom while he takes a shower, and drawing comic books whose protagonist is a muscular, scantily-dressed version of Gumball constantly putting his pecs and ass on display.

  • Stewie Griffin from Family Guy is definitely depraved and has shown attraction to several people of both genders (such as Brian).
  • Hey Arnold!:
    • Helga Pataki is probably the horniest nine-year-old girl in the history of western animation, being a Stalker with a Crush for Arnold who obsesses over him all the time in way that are outright lustful. A particular poem she penned for him contained sexual references so blatant that the radar was nuked and the remains shat all over. She also sighs dreamily and damn-near passes out when she once sees Arnold disrobe, and again when he hugs her.
    • Although not as extreme as Helga, Curly's attraction to Rhonda manifests in a number of highly suggestive statements. He's also a lot more aggressive, forcibly kissing her on two separate occasions, the latter of which occurs while he blackmails her into pretending she's his girlfriend.
    Give Daddy some sugar.
    • When Arnold visits a Bizarro Universe populated by Country Cousin version of his friends, Lila's counterpart Lulu hits on Arnold in ways that he specifically objects to because they're so young. Although the whole episode was All Just a Dream, so maybe that says something about Arnold.
  • Kaeloo:
    • Despite presenting herself as pure and innocent, Kaeloo is just as prone to perverted tendencies as other characters - at the end of Let's Play at Reading Books, it's implied that she saw Mr. Cat's... ahem... "goods" and that she liked it, and in another she gropes Chippendales Dancers.

    • Pretty also acts perverted towards boys, especially Mr. Cat.

  • The South Park kids, though they suffer from Ping-Pong Naïveté (not Kenny, he's dirty though and through!). Clyde Donovan is also a honorable mention; he held a speech about lesbian cheerleaders and ditched the World of Warcraft battle to read Playboy.
  • In Animaniacs, the Warner brothers are always quick to catcall any pretty women entering the scene (usually with their Catch-Phrase "Hello, Nurse!"). And the Warner sister is no better when it comes to handsome men.
