Sometimes we look back on Nickelodeon shows and wonder how we missed these moments as kids. Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant
What made kids shows so great was how clever the writing often was. In fact, in many of them, there was some seriously adult jokes tucked away in the scripts that made the shows even funnier once the kids grew up or for the parents watching with their kids. Nickelodeon’s shows featured some of the best adult humour around and we’re amazed that some of them made it past the censors.
Case in point, literally anything put on screen from Rocko’s Modern Life or Ren and Stimpy. Seriously, we could have made a whole video out of those two shows alone and it wouldn’t have mattered. But thankfully, we diversified and there’s more to see from there. Even the most innocent of shows, like Doug, have their moments. Hey Arnold can be seen talking about trying sausages and experiences at Woodstock while the Rugrats tackled everything from “the snip” to dirty VHS tapes. Actually, Rugrats All Grown Up and the Movie carried on that tradition of adult jokes. Alone time jokes made their way into Fairly Odd Parents, as does Spongebob Squarepants, who got it’s fair share of sly humour. Sometimes, the writing is more clever and you may not even get the joke as an adult. Case in point, the Animaniacs. It’s not all animation though, iCarly made the list as well with some interesting literature. It is amazing that many of these moments made their way into cartoons as some of them are actually pretty explicit and adult.
