The cutmasters generally don't accept cut requests for pages unless literally everything on them has been deemed beyond saving. The individual examples probably need more discussion here.
Yeah, that shouldn't be cut yet, as there's still room for discussion.
Do you have any thoughts on the page?
On another note, I recall that someone said that the page image for the trope isn’t an example. Has there been any discussion of alternatives?
iCarly seems to have some legit examples, but some that don't count. There are "examples" of near swearing (which we've already established doesn't count), and things taken out of context. It also has a few ZCEs.
With claims that the MPAA ratings have completely changed their meanings over time, and PG-13 not existing when the movie came out, I wonder if Airplane! would still be a valid example were it released today and rated PG-13.

I've been thinking: since The Simpsons radar page is gone with the wind and the South Park one is being called into question, then shouldn't the Family Guy one have been long zapped?
Hard to say in retrospect, but I recall that it was films like Airplane!, if not that one specifically, that led to the creation of the PG-13 rating.
If not, some people (not necessarily me) would say it doesn't fit the trope, since PG at the time included what would be PG-13 today. Raiders of the Lost Ark was also rated PG and came out a year later.
I don't think the examples on Radar.Batman Assault On Arkham count. The film is PG-13 and the innuendo listed on it doesn't seem that bad. At the very least, it should be moved back to the main page, as it's only two examples.
I’ve found a problematic example on Totally Spies!, specifically the S6 folder:
Uh..... this isn’t getting anything past the radar? It’s simply a catgirl licking someone else’s cheek. Get your mind out of the gutter. And even if it was sneaking anything past in the first place, it’s a Zero-Context Example.
On Mickey's House of Villains:
Does This Count?
I really don't get what the radar-dodging is supposed to be. I also support cutting Totally Spies and Batman.

I believe the fourth one is "Garfield has Odie pant into the phone to make Liz think Jon was getting off to her voice".
Well, that's one mystery solved. If it took me this long to understand it, I highly doubt any kids will get it, so I still vote to cut it. What do you think about the other strips?
I say cut all of the Garfield examples listed.
How many times do I have to say "I highly doubt any kids will get it" doesn't disqualify it for being GCPTR?
Have we decided whether the "Patrick, your genius is showing!" "Where!?" joke from the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Texas" qualifies?
I understood the joke even as a seven year-old. (Yes, I knew what penises were at that age.)
That sort of joke is completely fine for SpongeBob.
The Radar.Family Guy description mentions the trope, but none of the examples aside from the "Cleveland Steamer" joke actually mention how it applies. Do any of the other examples count, or should the page be cut?
The Watches You Pee should be cut, as the classic ICUP joke is one done by kids younger than 14.
It seems the Totally Spies radar page was created without discussion by Monolaf 317, and the edit reason is “How does this series NOT have its own radar page yet?”. Which is, needless to say, not a valid edit reason
Creating subpages doesn't require discussion, or even an edit reason.

How well does it match the trope?
