Hop on the nostalgia train with me folks! We're heading back to the '90s and early 2000s when the kids were weird and the cartoons were weirder. We watched a whole lot of television back in the day (we still do, but we used to, too). The animated shows and movies of our youth remain eternal classics in our hearts. They always will. But we have to revisit a few of them because there were definitely some jokes in these shows and movies...adult, dirty jokes...that flew over our heads when we were kids. Only now, as full-grown, mature adults, can we fully appreciate the gross, hilarious humor of the sick minds we put in charge of entertaining us as kids.
Rocko as a "Specialty Phone Operator"
In one episode of Rocko’s Modern Life, Rocko is desperate for a job (we’ve all been there!), so he takes a gig as a “Specialty Phone Operator” (we have not all been there). The writing is on the wall…literally. That sign on the wall makes it quite clear that Rocko has taken a job as a phone sex operator. This show was on Nickelodeon!
Paper Towel Boy
In one scene in The Fairly OddParents, Timmy’s parents are watching a Dr. Phil-type show called Dr. Bill. Talking about children, Dr. Bill asks, “Do they use a lot of paper towels, spend too much time alone in their rooms, and say, ‘Don’t bother me!’?”
To which Timmy responds, “I’m just gonna take these paper towels up to my room alone, so don’t bother me.”
What was Timmy going to do alone in his bedroom with paper towels? I think you know.
Spongebob Watches Porn
In this clip, Spongebob is definitely watching porn, judging by how fast he changes the channel when Gary enters the room. How a sponge you know, does his business, I have no idea.
Speaking of Porn...
Grandpa Lou showed the babies the cover of his favorite movie, Lonely Space Vixens, which he’d watch after the kids went to bed. How old were you when you learned about your grandparents’ sexual fetishes?
The Time the Animaniacs Just Went for It
Yeah, uh, this really happened. On a kids’ show. Obviously, we didn’t get it back then, but boy oh boy, it’s a dirty joke!
We’re just getting started. Next up, Hey Arnold! and one very horny Ms. Helga Pataki…
