10 Hidden Adult Jokes In Children’s Movies


In recent years, filmmakers have gotten a
lot better at making kids’ movies appeal to adults – usually by filling it with jokes
and references that the average kid won’t even understand. There are almost too many
to choose from, but these are just a few of our favorite adult jokes that younger audiences
never caught. Here are Screen Rant’s 10 Hidden Adult Jokes In Children’s Movies. Space Jam (Warner Bros.) In the wacky universe of Space Jam, anything
could happen! After a cosmic amusement park experiences a dip in attendance, the owner
starts to scout out some new talent. When The Looney Tunes become the target of a cosmic
amusement park owner looking to boost profits, they wind up having their freedom bet on a
basketball game. Thankfully, the Looney Tunes have Michael Jordan on their side, but the
opposition is tough. The MonSTARS cheat by stealing the talents of real-world NBA stars.
When the players are given physicals to try to understand why they suddenly can’t play
basketball, the doctor drops a erectile dysfunction joke (“how’s your performance off the
court?”) that definitely stayed under the radar of most kids. Shrek (DreamWorks Pictures) In Shrek’s movie debut, his peaceful existence
is ruined when an evil Lord banishes all fairy tale characters to live in his beloved swamp.
Shrek heads off to see the Lord and convince him to reverse the decision, but even before
he meets “Lord Farquaad,” kids will have missed a particularly crude joke. Try saying
Lord Farquaad’s name twice as fast, and you’ll hear the R-Rated nickname “F-wad”
some fans claim is an obvious joke, not to mention Shrek and Donkey implying that his
massive castle is making up for a shortage elsewhere. Monster House (Columbia Pictures) Neighborly disputes are common, but Monster
House shows how bad things can get when the owner’s soul literally merges with his house.
When the films’ trio of kids loses their basketball on the property leads to a grisly
scuffle, the kids decide to investigate inside. The house is modeled after the human body,
with references to anatomy worked right into its architecture. The parts of the house never
head below the belt, but when a part of the human anatomy comes close, the filmmakers
couldn’t pass up the gag that even adults might miss. 101 Dalmatians (Walt Disney Pictures) Not all cartoons translate well to live-action,
but Disney’s retelling of 101 Dalmatians sticks pretty close to the original story.
When Cruella De Ville talks to stars Roger and Anita, it’s revealed that the couple
is also expecting a baby to go along with the upcoming litter of puppies. Cruella snaps
her gaze to Roger and makes a crude joke that is at best, accusing him of cheating, and
at worst, well you’ll see. Neither one seems at home in a Disney movie. The Little Mermaid (Disney) When the restless mermaid star of this Disney
classic falls in love with a human, she makes a deal that goes horribly wrong. She winds
up with her prince in the end, but the wedding scene didn’t kill the rumor that Disney
likes to hide adult references in all of their films. Conspiracy theorists like to point
out that the minister is far too excited to be leading the ceremony (See Still Image),
while Disney’s defenders claim his knobby knees are the obvious explanation. Either
way, Disney took note, and only copies produced during the original run contain the scene
in its true state. It was modified for the 2006 re-release. Muppet Treasure Island (Buena Vista Pictures) Based on the classic pirate caper, Muppet
Treasure Island keeps to the original plot, sending Muppets on a search for treasure while
navigating pirate-infested waters. The Muppets have always been as popular with adults as
kids, and known for incorporating dirty, sometimes dark humor into their show. One of the film’s
more risqué scenes sees Kermit and Miss Piggy reunite, with the pink pirates discussing
her past lovers. She then greets Tim Curry’s Long John Silver a little too intimately,
leading Kermit to assume they’ve also knocked boots. Madagascar (DreamWorks Pictures) Most parents learn fast that inventing words
or phrases to replace cursing in front of their kids is a must, but sometimes, the cleverest
solutions make it into film. In the animal adventure Madagascar, a group of pampered
animals escape their New York zoo to wind up on the island of Madagascar. Alex the lion
is prone to hunger-induced hallucinations, which means his friend Marty the zebra starts
to look a little too delicious. When their ride home arrives, Marty runs to fetch a starving
Alex. As Marty turns to flee the attack, he shouts out a seemingly meaningless string
of words (“sugar honey iced tea”). When adults take a second to think it over, they’ll
realize the words’ first letters are a bit more accurate. The Rugrats Movie (Paramount Pictures) If you were watching Nickelodeon in the nineties,
there’s a good chance you know cartoon babies Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, and the rest
of the Rugrats gang. The cartoon’s full-length movie saw Tommy and his friends set out to
return his newborn brother Dil to the hospital. The show was always a bit edgy, but one dirty
little joke slides by almost completely undetected. A conversation between two newborns turns
dark as one laments the loss of her umbilical cord. The second baby stares longingly into
his diaper, telling her to be happy that’s all they took. Mrs. Doubtfire (20th Century Fox) Deadbeat dads are nothing new for Hollywood,
but when it’s Robin Williams in the role, you know it’s going to be funny. It’s
bad enough that his character loses his kids in a custody battle with his soon-to-be ex-wife,
but disguising himself as the elderly Mrs. Doubtfire actually works – until a new suitor
named Stu starts courting his wife. People who only saw the movie as children might now
realize that the villainous Stu was actually a decent guy, but most of the sexual innuendo
probably went completely over their heads. No conversation proves it better than Mrs.
Doubtfire’s attempt to scare him off by discussing her nighttime hobbies, all of which
were completely meaningless to the kids just laughing at a man dressed as an old woman. The Road to El Dorado (DreamWorks Pictures) In this Dreamworks adventure, two quasi-criminals
quest to find a mystical “city of gold,” but it wouldn’t be much of a movie if things
went smoothly for the heroes Tulio and Miguel. The journey isn’t all bad though, especially
for Tulio, who enjoys the company of a beautiful woman named Chel. In fact, he might be enjoying
it a little too much. In one scene, the camera pans across a couch before Chel appears from
below, followed by a satisfied Tulio. Considering the sounds heard before they’re interrupted
– and the fact that their heads pop up from two different places – the animators seem
to be implying something far more adult than a PG kids movie. But we’ll let you decide. So what do you think of our list? Did we miss

  1. What about that one from a bug’s life? The one with those flies saying that Francias should “make pollen to a real bug” or something like that.

  2. So we watched road to Eldorado in my 7TH GRADE Class so ya it’s a bad idea to show that scene in front of a bunch of 13 year olds lol there were so many stares at the teacher

  3. The funny thing about Road to El Dorado, Tulip and Miguel was originally supposed to be a gay couple and it was supposed to be the first movie in a series. But DreamWorks forced them to change it and put in a female love interest for one of them to make sure. There are still a lot of homosexual subtext in the movie and the people that made it still consider them both gay, they just haven't realized it yet.
