10+ Adult moments in children’s cartoons


Animators are really funny people who like to hide jokes in their productions. That’s why, while watching a movie, parents often notice funny moments that kids are too young to understand and appreciate.

11. Cinderella


This scene in Cinderella finds 2 mice gathering beads from the floor. Kids admire Jaq’s creativity in threading them onto Gus’s tail. However, some parents think it might look like something else

10. Ice Age


In this Ice Age scene, Manny warns a tapir to be more reasonable and uses the following phrase: “If my trunk was that small, I wouldn’t draw attention to myself, pal!” Kids laughed at the word fight between the animals, and adults smiled at the hidden subtext.

9. SpongeBob SquarePants


SpongeBob creates a Squidward balloon sculpture. Are you still thinking about balloons?

8. Cars


The world of Cars is populated with different vehicles who act just like people, with their own personalities and behaviors. Some episodes can be compared to our world, for example, the sign Nice Butte on the car’s bumper made many adults smile.

7. Rugrats


In one episode of the cartoon, Grandpa Lou invites the kids to watch a dinosaur movie, adding with a grin that he rented his favorite film too. However, he would only watch it alone when the kids were in bed. The innocent question “Why won’t he watch it with the kids?”was asked of many parents.

6. Shrek 4


In Shrek4, Fiona turns into a really kick-ass ogre warrior and a powerful woman. When Shrek confesses to Donkey that Fiona is actually his wife, Donkey ironically replies, “Well, I see who wears the chain mail in your family!” This family hierarchy joke was really appreciated by many women, giving them a chance to joke at their husbands.

5. The Emperor’s New Groove


When The Emperor’s New Groove saw Kronk out sleeping in a tent that was too small, many kids wondered why he didn’t use a bigger one. However, adults really appreciated how the Disney animators joked at the only man’s body part that should be covered.


4. Rocko’s Modern Life


Quite obvious sexual innuendos can also be seen in Rocko’s Modern Life. In the scene where he gets a new job as a phone operator, the advice paper on the wall says, “Be hot, be naughty, be courteous.” Makes you wonder what kind of phone service he is providing.

3. Pinocchio

The imagination goes wild if you remember the name of the island.

2. Timon & Pumbaa


In the Doubt of Africa episode, the Tigress shows photos of her kids. Surprised, Pumbaa says, “Wow, you’ve been busy!“ The Tigress replies, ”I suppose I am good at one thing.”The joke is pretty obvious to adults.

1. Despicable Me 2


The dating scene between Gru and Shannon was awkward in more ways than one. As romantic as the following meeting with Lucy might seem, the whole episode surely made adults giggle along with their kids, although for quite different reasons, numerous innuendos and all.
