Intended Innuendo

Children's cartoons are by defualt a comedy genre. There is a history of intended innuendo, or adult humor that is hidden along side the humor targeting kids. Here are a few examples showing double coded punchlines (this is a just a small handful of the types of jokes that are in kids shows):

Cartoon Network Bumper - Powerpuff Girls (Justice League Spoof)

Cartoon Network - Ed, Edd n Eddy (The Day the Ed Stood Still) S. 3 Ep.22
Cartoon Network - Ed, Edd n Eddy (no idea what episode)

Disney Channel - Phineas and Ferb (The Remains of the Platypus) S. 3 Ep. 36
