"...and my personal favorite,
‘Lonly Space Vixens.’
That's for after you go
to bed." -Grandpa
In the 1992 Rugrats
episode "Grandpa's Date" (S2E8),
finishing up showing the babies a
collection of movies he rented for them.
The priest has an erection during the
wedding scene in the original
VHS release of
The Little Mermaid.
(Edited out in later versions.)
Contrary to popular belief, there is
no record of a deleted scene that explains
it as a cat in his pants.
Betty Boop started out life as a dog.
She eventually lost the animal
a human being.
Yet Bimbo the Dog remained her
boyfriend for several years after.
Russian animator, Ladislaw Starewicz
would use real dead animals and
insects as his stop motion puppets
in a lot of his films.
In the 1942 Merrie Melodies short,
The Wabbit Who Came to Supper,
it appears there's a few frames where
we glimpse Bugs Bunny's penis as
his towel starts slipping.
Looks can be deceiving though,
because it's really just the gap between
his legs and the tub behind him
cut off by the towel.
S.N.A.F.U. is military slang for
"Situation Normal: All F*cked Up".
The shorts were originally
only meant to be seen exclusively
by the military and not the general
public, hence the more common
innuendos and mild swearing
throughout the episodes.
