She's dancing around the spear as if it were a pole...subtle Disney.

I thought the Earth wasn't supposed to move until the honeymoon...

See also Film/Radar for live-action movies.

  • Disney's The Weekenders has done this quite literally on at least one occasion where Carver states that he wants to be CARP, Cool And Radically Popular, to which Tino responds "It's a good thing you don't want to be Cool RICH And Popular." Carver doesn't get it.
    • In the episode "Tickets", an attractive girl Cheri tries to convince Tino to take her to a Chum Bukkit concert, which he has an extra pass for:

 Cheri: Take me to the concert.

Tino: What's your offer?

Cheri: (in a sultry voice) My offer is, you get to take me to the concert.

[cut to Tino's dumbfounded expression]


[a "sproing" sound effect plays]

  • Disney's Aladdin franchise, particularly the direct-to-video film sequels The Return of Jafar and Aladdin The King of Thieves, as well as the Aladdin TV series, had several of these:
    • At the beginning of King of Thieves, during the earthquake that breaks up the wedding ceremony, Genie says, "I thought the Earth wasn't supposed to move until the honeymoon."
    • And at the end of the same movie, where Aladdin and Jasmine are flying off on Carpet, presumably towards their honeymoon. Aladdin turns to Jasmine gives her an eyebrow-waggling look that says, "I may not wait 'till we land!"
    • In one episode of the series, the heroes are trapped by Aladdin's Evil Counterpart Mozenrath. Jasmine pleads with him to spare Agrabah, saying "I'll give you anything." Mozenrath's response?

 Mozenrath: By the time I'm through, princess... you'll have given me everything!

He then proceeds to laugh maniacally while Jasmine looks horrified and Aladdin pulls her close while glaring at Mozenrath.
    • At one point early on, Prince Achmed (one of Jasmine's many suitors) knocks Aladdin in a mud puddle. As he rides off on his horse, Al gets up, looks over at him, and says, "Hey, look at that, Abu. It's not every day you see a horse with two rear ends." Think about it...
      • The Hebrew dub makes it even more clear, with the line being translated as, "It's not every day you see a donkey riding a horse."
    • Minor, but an early episode opens with a snooty prince proposing to Jasmine (she turns him down). After he leaves Genie calls him what sounds like "Prince Wazu", which may be a legitimate Arabic name but also sounds like another term for one's posterior...
    • In the first musical number of the first movie, the narrator states that "Arabian nights, like Arabian days / More often than not, are hotter than hot, in a lot of good ways". Granted, the fly-through of the city is showing a fire-eater blowing a fireball at the time, but still...
      • This troper's girlfriend refused to believe that she had grown up with the edited version of the Aladdin theme song. You can still find copies that start "Well I come from a land in a faraway place, where the desert caravans roam/ Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face, it's barbaric, but hey it's home!"
      • The animated series uses the same song as the Theme Song, and that line instead accompanies a clip of Jasmine dancing. Make of it what you will.
    • Again, in the animated series, Aladdin offers to surrender himself to Mirage, a powerful cat-headed sorceress, in exchange for the release of a group of children. Or does he? She - already established as that kind of villainess - muses on the offer for a moment before she decides she would "relish" having him as her "personal manservant". With that emphasis.
    • Also one exclusive to the Norwegian dub; during "Friend Like Me", after Genie poofs up some dancers for Aladdin to gawk at, the lyrics eventually read what is roughly translated as "But you won't see 'em without clothes". Wow.
      • Watch that scene with the dancers very closely. It looks very much like the animators had Aladdin cop a feel.
  • In Disney's The Rescuers, there is one clip where two characters are speeding down the road in a car. For a mere two frames, if you pause and look into one of the windows zooming by, you can see a naked woman inside. There are many urban legends surrounding Disney movies, but this is the only one that is obviously deliberate.
  • In the Goof Troop episode "Take Me Out Of The Ball Game", PJ and Max try to hide the fact that they did not make the baseball team by stopping their fathers from seeing any of the games. One thing they do is fill their dads' cars' exhaust pipes with cement. Pete makes note of this:

 Pete: Somebody put cement in our tailpipes!

    • But, since he is prone to pronouncing things oddly, he over-emphasised the c, and it came out sounding like semen. Made even more funny by the whole 'tailpipe' thing. Here it is, at about 6:51.
  • Early Disney was more about experimentation and pushing boundaries than putting out family friendly fare, so in addition to the fairly dark themes of those comics, female cows could be seen wandering around with their udders exposed. Walt put a stop to the latter after receiving a complaint in a theater from two ladies, giving his cows skirts on their udders from there on out, according to "The Hand Behind The Mouse".
  • Lady and the Tramp sneaks a Parental Bonus in after the heartwarming dinner scene: Lady and the Tramp lie down on a hill watching the stars...FadeToBlack, implying that this is how Lady ended up pregnant with the Tramp's puppies (out of wedlock, no less!). There's even a conversation between Jock and Trusty later on how one of them will have to marry Lady now, in order to save her honor.
  • Oliver and Company has a strange moment where it seems like Georgette is afraid/hopeful that Dodger will rape her.
  • The Walt Disney version of The Jungle Book had some of this too. One being Hathi slapping his wife in the butt (he even mutters, "Jolly good, Winifred!") and another with how Kaa comes off more as a pedophile than a hungry predator.
    • Try Kaa's parting words as he slithers out of the movie.

 Kaa: Oooooh, my sacroiliac!

    • The scene described above was him trying to straighten up the line, and to this troper what he said sounded more like "My apologies, Winifred."
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas: Well, first there's the whole Show Some Leg thing (Oogie even mutters "ooh, love legs"!), then after "This Is Halloween" when everyone is heaping praise on Jack, the short witch gets a little....affectionate....with Jack's leg (though that could be this troper's gutter-minded imagination).

 Oogie: And now with your permission, I'm going to do my stuff.

Santa: What are you going to do?

Oogie: I'm going to do the best I can...


 Frollo: D...

Quasimodo: Damnation.

Frollo: E...

Quasimodo: Eternal Damnation.

    • Frollo wanting to commit genocide to an entire race of people...burning down ALL of Paris just so he can find that girl he's obsessively lusting after/wants to kill...remind me why this movie was rated G again?
    • Also Esmeralda's ENTIRE dance in the movie, watch this starting around 2:13 the entire dance is
      • This exchange witnessing it...

 Frollo: Look at that disgusting display!

Pheobus: Yes, sir!

    • And at the end of the film, it's actually implied that all but one of Esmeralda's dresses were destroyed by Frollo so she can be executed properly, with the only outfit Esme still has left being a white dress.
      • It's actually a shift or underdress. That's right, she's being executed in what basically amounts to her underwear. (Historically accurate, but still...)
  • They even did it in cartoons. For example, The Brave Engineer, in which Casey Jones passes through a station at such a high speed that his train rips the dress off a waiting lady, leaving her standing in plain sight in underwear and stockings.
  • Kingdom Hearts has Roxas and Namine, who are special nobodies formed as a combination of Sora and Kairi, caused by the bizarre effects of Sora stabbing himself to liberate Kairi's heart. This gives vaguely parent/child overtones to the relationship between the nobodies and their others. Then there's Xion. Basically, there's a whole bunch of implications of potential Parental Incest, Screw Yourself, and in the eyes of some fans Brother-Sister Incest.
    • In another KH game, another profanity slip happened (which is not uncommon for a Square-Enix game but very much uncommon for a Disney game). In Chain of Memories, late into the game, one of the Organization XIII members, upon sending Riku to face Sora, says that the fight between the two friends will be "One hell of a show". It's interesting to note that this is the first and so far only time that any kind of profanity has made it into any of the KH games.
      • And Chain of Memories was rated E. Granted, at least three Disney Animated Canon films managed to get away with it, though the former two used "hell" in a different context that allows it's use in G-rated movies, and the last one was a Freeze-Frame Bonus.
  • Though she didn't in the KH games, one of Disney's most legendary villains, Maleficent, used a line of profanity in Sleeping Beauty. Before turning into a dragon, after flinging herself to cut off the Prince as he tries to escape her wrath, she shouts to him, "Now shall you deal with me, O prince, and all the powers of HELL!!!!" The entire sequence not only set a precedence to how Disney animated films and shows were unafraid to push the envelope a bit, but was also the first time such a word was used in any Disney animation.
  • Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers managed to get a skimpy red dress with high slits on the sides worn by Gadget past the radar. Twice.
    • The same episode which introduces the famous red dress ("Double 'O Chipmunk") features Dale in nothing but his fur and a bowtie, just like a Chippendale dancer.
    • Watch "Le Purrfect Crime", and then try to explain to your kids where the name Maltese de Sade comes from.
  • Treasure Planet gives us Captain Amelia telling Silver that "You can keep that kind of flim-flammery for your spaceport floozies, Silver."

 Amelia: Actually, Doctor, your astronomical advice was most helpful.

Doppler: Well, u-uh, thank you. Thank you very much. Well, I have a lot of help to offer, anatomically--amanamonically--as...astronomically! *Face Palm*


 Mother Gothel: Rapunzel knows best;

Rapunzel's so mature now.

Such a clever grown-up miss.

Rapunzel knows best.

Fine, if you're so sure now,

Go ahead and give him this, huh?

Rapunzel: How did you--

Mother Gothel: This is why he's here,

Don't let him deceive you!

Give it to him, watch, you'll see!

Trust me, my dear,

That's how fast he'll leave you!

I won't say I told you so-

No, Rapunzel knows best!

So if he's such a dreamboat,

Go and put him to the test!

If he's lying, don't come crying!

Mother Knows Best!

    • Also, some promotional artwork actually showed Rapunzel Going Commando (there isn't a white dress underneath her pink one).
  • Anyone else notice Duchess saying " Turn me on " in The Aristocats during "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat"?
  • Beauty and the Beast: Remember Maurice fiddling with Cogsworth's... pendulum? (And Cogsworth's reaction to such prodding?)
    • Gaston mentioning that every last inch of him is covered in hair accompanied by a wink to the camera.
    • The feather duster/maid is picked up, held upside down, and has her feathers ripped out during the end fight scene. As an adult, you realize that the feathers are her skirt... Also, the shrieks she makes as she's being yanked at and how she's rescued by her very angry boyfriend.
    • Gaston's attempt to propose to Belle. Good lord, especially the end, when he's menacingly advancing towards her, pushing furniture out of the way, and leaning in to force a kiss.
    • "You can ask any Tom, Dick, or Stanley/ And they'd tell you whose team they'd prefer to be on!"
    • "How can you read this? There aren't any pictures!" Gaston complains of Belle's book, holding it sideways as he flips through it. The director's commentary implies he's trying to find the centerfold...
    • That scene in Beauty and the Beast where Lumiere is chasing a maid/feather duster around behind the curtains: "Oh no!" "Oh yes!" Especially when we saw the maid again after the spell was broken.
      • "But I've been burned by you before!" In normal circumstances, a way of saying one is an unreliable partner. When a candelebra is holding a (wooden-handled) featherduster?
      • Any attempts to figure out what on Earth she could be talking about tend to tie the brain into knots.
      • If you're not sure what she could mean, consider that the most flammable part of her is her feathers -- that is, her skirt, and his hands and head are flame.
      • In the song Be Our Guest Lumiere also says he needs Far more than dusting.
      • The following 'exercise, a chance to use our skills' becomes a bit dubious with that interpretation.
      • My childhood!
  • Mulan has a few, though this troper feels that the greatest is the pseudonym Mulan adopts upon her entry into the army. "Ping" in itself isn't bad, and her full (fake) name is never said aloud in the movie, so it took a while for this troper and her friends to catch it. But try saying "Fa Ping" out loud a few times.

 "You can guess what we have missed the most since we went off to war..."

    • Oh come on! When she's in the lake and Mushu says "We're doomed! There's a couple of things I know they're bound to notice!" She grabs a lily pad and covers her breasts! If that isn't this trope...
    • Same scene when the guys join Mulan in the lake, when Ling is swimming past a lily pad covers... a certain MANLY area. Also when they're in the palace, his boob jiggles. Quite obviously, in fact.
    • During the song "Honor To Us All", Mulan is briefly seen wearing a white dress just right before two older women make her put on her iconic pink dress for her visit with the Matchmaker.
    • The basic premise is that a woman has entered an all-man's encampment. Watch that bath scene again. Go on. This troper will wait.
    • Also: "Your great-granddaughter had to be a CROSS DRESSER!!!"
    • "It's only concubines." "Ugly concubines."
      • Or this line from Mushu..."Because MISS MAN decided to take her drag show on the road!"
    • Shang and his taste in both girls and boys.
  • In Disney's The Cat from Outer Space (a film which features both Mash commanding officers, McLean Stevenson and Harry Morgan, BTW), the title character manages to contact the mothership. His human friend asks incredulously, "Is that another cat?" to which he responds, "Oh yeah--a real mother."
    • Because of the tone of his voice when he says that, this troper always took that to mean that the cat he had contacted was HIS mother. Then again, this troper was rather young at the time.
  • Looking back, the Disney Tarzan got away with some... interesting stuff when it came to Tarzan and Jane, for a movie that's supposed to mostly appeal to children -- such as a quick scene where Tarzan curiously tries to look up her skirt and presses his face against her chest to listen to her heartbeat. Considering how this was the first time he met a human woman during his adulthood and therefore being rather "innocent", and how the scene as a whole is actually very sweet and romantic, it's possibly one of the least crass examples on this page.
    • The kicker? The skirt scene was actually in the advertisements for the movie.
      • The way Jane said breathlessly "I was saved...I was saved by a wild man in loin cloth."

 Prof. Porter: Loin cloth? Good lord!

    • And of course following immediately after, Prof. Porter explains to Clayton that Jane is just probably taking after her mother because Jane's mother use to go and create wild and imaginative stories all the time, "All though she never dreamt up of anything about men in loin cloths *nervous chuckle*"
    • Go back and watch the "Strangers Like Me" sequence. Particularly the second verse:

 Every gesture, every move that she makes

Makes me feel like never before

Why do I have

This growing need to be beside her?

  • The Lion King II: After the Star-Crossed Lovers are reunited, Kovu eagerly suggests to Kiara, "Let's get out of here. We'll run away together! And start a pride all our own...", with a motion and a look on his face that suggests he's ready to get started right then and there.
  • In the The Great Mouse Detective, who could forget the anthropomorphic lady-mouse performing a Victorian Era strip show to the song "Let Me Be Good To You"?
    • And Dawson getting slipped a mickey.
    • The same lady told the gents to keep drinking their beer, while half the bar smoked. Hard to imagine that these were the least of the worries.
  • Search on YouTube for "Disney Movie Subliminal Messages". You'll either be shocked by what's put into the movies, or shocked by what people with nothing better to do find in the movies. You can give one of these people any frame from any movie and they'll find the word "sex" in it.
    • It almost did say "sex" in The Lion King. It was a hidden message from the special effects team. Which is why it actually says SFX in the cloud -- not too hard to understand why people confused the two.
    • Speaking of The Lion King although it was cut from the final version, after the song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" there was going to be a scene where Simba wakes up lying next to Nala. As he's about to leave, he encounters Timon, who congratulates him for loving and leaving. Don't believe me? Have a look for yourself .
  • Speaking of Ursula, her scenes in The Little Mermaid are much more adult than most children realize. The animators apparently spent a long time making sure that everything that should jiggle actually did.
    • Few people know this, but Ursula was modeled after Divine, a famous shit-eating drag queen.
      • Might also be unfortunate implications there.
    • Rewatching Poor Unfortunate Souls you might notice the very interesting way Ursula tells Ariel about the "importance of body language" in getting a man's love.
    • Ariel's early scenes on land take a whole new meaning when you consider that she's completely naked down there.
      • Heck, just look at the way she takes her breath of air for the first time. VH-1 I love the 80s segment appropriately referred to that something akin to "soft core porn"...there is no other way to LOOK at that pose!
  • In A Goofy Movie...right when Goofy and Max are sneaking into the Power Line concert, Max says, "Dad, maybe this isn't a good idea..." He trails off when noticing a group of the back up singers of Power line walk by, and the back up ladies I might add are wearing skin tight black tube tops, with a matching form fitting-black mini skirts, Max tilts his head just right-his eyes obviously looking down, a smile on his face appears, "Then again..."

 Max: *very annoyed & pissed* My life's a living h-


    • In An Extremely Goofy Movie there's a subtle one, during the scene where Max reveals that his dad's been fired a snickering Bobby says, "So did they show him his pink slip?"
  • Hercules: The scene with Nessus is practically MADE of implications that he wants sex. How this would work, I have no idea.
    • Feel compelled at this point to mention that Nessus was famous in Greek mythology for being killed by Hercules after he tried to rape Herc's third wife, Deianeira.
    • What about the garden scene? It starts with Hercules recapping the offscreen date, which ended with a performance of Oedipus Rex. "I thought I had problems!" After Meg mentions her weak ankles:

 Meg: So, do you have any problems with things like this? (kicks her ankle up by his face)

Hercules: (uncomfortably glances down her leg) Uh...

Meg: (nudges his face away with her foot) Weak ankles, I mean.

    • And later, when she's practically climbing on him trying to get him to give something away:

 Meg: No trick knee... ruptured disks?

Hercules: (gulps and slides the strap of her dress back onto her shoulder)

    • Phil's basically introduced with this trope. Herc surprises him while he's peeping through the bushes at some nymphs playing in a lake, and causes them to notice him. They all flee in embarrassment... and one of them disappears in a flash right in front of him, leaving him shocked on the ground with a ring of flowers around his neck.
    • The intro song The Gospel Truth sung by the Greek Chorus actually praises Alcohol on "Life was neat and smooth as sweet vermouth". Hercules really pushed the envelope here.
    • Being bigger on banter than the others, Hades and Megara's conversations are the most likely to be rife with innuendo:

 Meg: Looks like your game's over. Wonder Boy's hitting every curve you throw at him.

Hades: (stares at Meg, getting an idea) ...Oh, yeah. (chuckles suggestively) ...Wonder if maybe I haven't been throwing the right curves at him, (traces the outline of Meg's figure in smoke with his hands) Meg, my sweet?


Hades: I need someone who can... handle him as a man.

Meg: Hey, I've sworn off "man-handling".

  • One House of Mouse animated short was about Donald Duck operating a roller coaster called the "Rocket Ruckus", and throughout the whole short did he constantly try to prevent his nephews from riding said roller coaster. As a result, the nephews come up with various disguises as an attempt to go onto the roller coaster without their uncle finding out, but unfortunately, they fail every time. Later, Donald sees an extremely tall woman with a bad standing posture, and believes that she is actually his nephews in disguise. But when Donald tears off the woman's dress, he finds out that she is actually an extremely tall woman with a bad standing posture. And upon realizing her nakedness, she punches Donald in the face!
    • Another short from the same show showed Donald Duck being flung into a building naked at one point and immediately being thrown out, with the building's resident yelling out "Masher!"
    • (Donald sure gets a lot of these, doesn't he?) Yet another short has him babysitting a mischievous turtle in a department store. Several hijinks later end up with him being flung through the women's department and ending up wearing a dress. Daisy appears, and growls: "Hmph, so THIS is what you're doing with your spare time!," and storms off in a huff. Later in the same episode, Donald ends up in yet another dress. True to form, Daisy appears again and this time screams in despair; "OH, IT'S TRUE!!!" and then breaks down crying.
    • One of the episodes features an all-girls night at the House. The episode features Chip and Dale, as the "Chip 'N Dale Dancers". They even dress like the Chippendale Dancers.
  • Atlantis the Lost Empire featured a scene where Moliere can be seen whispering into a partially-naked woman's ear, and gets punched for his troubles.
    • Also, Helga's introductory scene at the very beginning of the film, complete with Sexophone and a skimpy black dress.
  • The fat lady from The Black Cauldron.
  • Two Words: Miss Bunny. There's a reason why the rabbit's name is Thumper.
  • Any generic Disney Princess clip-art showing the princesses twirling their gowns. They're actually flashing.
    • Esmeralda and Mulan were also seen in white dresses at one point in their films.
  • Darkwing Duck featured an episode in which Gosalyn joined a wizarding academy, discovered magic was actually hard, and sold her father's soul to Satan for magic powers. It aired once before Disney quickly pulled it from the reruns.
    • And in another episode, when an alien says that an alien princess and Launchpad are going to "oompah", Darkwing Duck quickly covers Gosalyn's ears.
    • In the episode "Inside Binkie's Brain", Binkie has become "The Canardian Guardian" and vowed to rid the city free of safety hazards. At one point, she straps a bunch of pillows to Darkwing and says, "An active lad like you needs extra protection."
    • In "Apes Of Wrath", Darkwing proclaims that "Night is [his] favourite time of day", complete with partial Aside Glance and eyebrow wiggling.
    • The episdoed "Water Way To Go" Gives us this moment...

 Darkwing: [...] A hero does the undoable, risks the unriskable, and thinks the unthinkable. *Looks into camera, and waggles eyebrows*

    • In "Beauty and the Beet", in between all the other plant- and gardening-related puns Darkwing and Bushroot throw at each other, they've hidden this little gem:

 Darkwing: Time to toss a little salad... *This line also comes less than a minute after Darkwing shaved off Bushroot's 'tail leaves' with a motorized grass trimmer.*

  • Tale Spin had a few: "Where's the hullabaloo? Oh! That Baloo!"
  • In one of the World War II Classic Disney Shorts, Der Fuhrer's Face, Goebbels, who acts in a rather camp fashion, gets poked in the posterior with a trombone. Also an exhausted Donald Duck says a "Heil" which sounds like "Hell".
    • That sounds like a Mondegreen...What about Donald's "innocent" remark about a concentration camp in "Timber"?
  • In the Goofy cartoon Teachers Are People, Goofy the teacher is watching a group of kids at recess. One kid calls his friends over and says "Hey, fellas. Ever hear the one about... (whisper whisper)". Goofy listens in, blushes bright red, and throws a lesson plan with pictures of birds and bees on it in the trash.
  • From the DuckTales episode "Robot Robbers":

 Babyface Beagle: We're number 1! We're number 1!

Burger Beagle: I was gettin' tired of bein' treated like number 2.

    • Not to mention "A Case of Mistaken Secret Identity" where Launchpad gets groupies and this exchange occurs:

 Launchpad: I'm gonna bare my soul!

Dewey: Jeepers, can you do that on television?

  • From Mulan: "Let's get down to business." On The Daily Show, Frank di Caro even referred to this Walking Shirtless Scene as Too Hung Lo.
  • The Soup caught this... interesting challenge from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse:
  • Believe it or not, SNOW WHITE got a lyric sung by Sneezy from "The Silly Song" cut out for being a little...unsanitary.

 The minute after I was born

I didn't have a nightee

So I tied my whiskers 'round my legs

And I used them for a di-a-dee (sneezes)


 Bashful: Do you have to wash where it doesn't show?

  • The Emperors New Groove has the scene where Kuzco and Pacha are both attempting to cross a Rope Bridge over a canyon. As the two are about to step onto the bridge, several wooden planks forming the bridge come apart and fall into the canyon below. The first four planks to fall off are actually shaped like the letters D, A, M, and N.
  • The Three Caballeros: Pretty much the entire movie plays on the idea that "love is a drug".
    • At another point in the movie, when Donald Duck is unable to blow himself back up to normal size (he uses his thumb instead of his index finger), Jose Carioca says to him, "Oh, my friend, you are using the wrong finger!" He puts the right finger in Donald's beak for him and then says, "Now, blow!" Donald inflates himself to his rightful size with this finger in his beak.
  • Cinderella has the scene where Jacques the mouse shoves beads up Gus-Gus' tail.
  • At the end of One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Pongo and Perdita return to their masters having rescued their own 15 puppies and 74 extra from Cruella De Vil. When their owners realize there are so many more puppies than before, this exchange occurs:

 Anita: But where did they all come from?

Roger: Pongo, you old rascal!

  • Lady and the Tramp has a sequence where stray mutt Tramp is leading pampered cocker spaniel Lady around, showing her his lifestyle. He sees a chicken farm and excitedly asks "You ever chased chickens before?", to which Lady, obviously offended, says "I most certainly hope not!" Now, this could just be because literal chicken-chasing is a "bad dog" behaviour she would not approve of, but there's also the old-fashioned use of "chasing chickens" to mean "chasing after women". Lady is, or course, female.
  1. referring to the temple in which Aladdin and Jasmine were getting married collapsing during the wedding.
