- In classic British style, much of the verbal humour especially is likely to sail right over the kiddies' heads. The most audacious example is probably in the Christmas Special, wherein a sadistic, whip-wielding prison guard tells Baynton, "I think I can speak for all the lads when I say, 'You're our favourite prisoner'." Yes, they actually went there.
- There's a song set in a monastery featuring errant monks partying with a "funky nun" while the bishop isn't looking. Her closing thoughts? "Ah, men!" A cleverly PG presentation of what were basically orgies behind monastery walls between nuns and monks.
- Bob Hale gets off a lulu in the Pharaoh Report: "Tutankhamen's daddy became a mummy, which is a very complex operation."
- There's also the wink and lip-bite George II gives the camera (and repeats in the the Prom special) while singing the line "I was the bad one..." Not to mention George I singing about how ladies "would do anything for me, or I'd have their husbands killed..." with a big eyebrow raise on "anything".
- Also from the Prom special, the inset sketch involving a royal lineup to use the public loo features this little experiment in just how much you can get away with by claiming historical accuracy:Charles II: Henry VIII's in there with his personal bottom-wiper. Calls him the Groom of the Stool. Very popular job in his day, apparently... [aside, to George III] Not my kind of party, but to each his own...
- Apparently, the Cash My Sin number (a riff on the medieval Church requirement that you pay to keep out of purgatory) is 0800-I've Been Naughty. Dang.
- The visual for this moment in the 'Burke & Hare' song is kept tastefully vague, but:Dr. Knox: Well it's always a palaverGetting hold of a cadaverSo I said yes, I'd have her —[peeks under sheet] Ooh! It's a he!
- The 'Victorian Eastenders' sketch involves a father berating his 'sixteenth daughter'. Her name? Chastity.
- In one sketch about the Greek myth of Cronus, they actually mention Cronus cutting off his father's "dangly bits".
- In the online game, they actually make mention to the ancient Egyptian aristocracy's tradition of brother-sister incest.
- Some of the Flowery Insult Shakespeare uses is this via Get Thee to a Nunnery. The better you understand Elizabethan English, the less it is Inherently Funny Words and the more it is rather dirty and un-PC words that couldn't be translated for a kids' show.
