10 Wildly Inappropriate Moments From Your Favorite Childhood Cartoons

- Page 1


As I sit and watch cartoons with my children these days, I notice quite a stark difference between the content now portrayed compared to what I remember watching as a child myself. Illustrators and writers are more aware of what will be deemed inappropriate, and they go to great lengths to avoid anything controversial. It wasn't always this way.

Here are 10 times that cartoons from my childhood crossed a line into, "did that just really happen?"

1. Rugrats - Tommy and Angelica's head.

I am sure that no one drew this up intentionally, in fact, without the screen shot most people would not likely have noticed that this happened. But, Tommy did look like he was getting a little too comfortable with a replica of his cousin's head.


2. Ren and Stimpy - the Log Song.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that the "Log Song" was obviously a reference to "sporting wood." We're not all that shocked to be honest, Ren and Stimpy crossed the line every time one of the episodes was on television.


3. Aladdin, the animated series - Aladdin gets mounted.

Aladdin the animated series came out to piggyback on the success of the movie. Now this was likely by no means intentional, but it definitly looks like Aladdin is being "mounted" by Rajah. It looks worse than it probably is...


4. Pokemon - Lickitung can get a little awkward.

Anytime you get into the world of anime things can get a little dicey, translations and drawings can be confused when you're bringing them to an English audience. No one seemed to notice how bad this particular scene looked. Judge for yourself.


5. Donald Duck gets "visibly excited."

I don't think that I can justifiably defend this particular scene. I truly don't think it just slipped past the editing team, my best guess is that it was done intentionally. Regardless, I didn't realize what I had seen until I got a little older.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the


KB Toys Announces Their Comeback After Toys 'R' Us Declares Bankruptcy

After we were all devastated by the news that our childhood heaven Toys 'R' Us was closing down, we thought that nothing could make our inner child happy. Honestly, Toys 'R' Us was the coolest place to go when you were little, and it sucks knowing that we won't be able to bring our kids there one day. But wait! There was one place that we loved going to just as much as Toys 'R' Us, maybe even more. KB Toys was the competitor to the popular brand, and while they went out of business in 2009, they are now


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a
