Top 10 Innuendos in Kids’ Movies


What’s a children’s movie nowadays without a few jokes for the parents? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 innuendos in kids’ movies.

For this list, we’re looking at moments from movies generally seen as being made for children or being family-friendly that could raise a few eyebrows upon second inspection. We’re considering potentially inappropriate moments and comments of any nature, whether that’s sexually suggestive or about something else that kids wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) generally know about. We’re excluding films that seem to be equally targeted to both kids and adults alike, such as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

#10: Bo Peep & Woody’s Escapades
“Toy Story” (1995)


This Pixar classic reinforced what most kids might have already suspected: that our toys were alive. What we didn’t realize was what they were really trying to do with their free time. In “Toy Story,” Bo Peep and Woody, a porcelain figurine and a cowboy doll, are in a relationship. After Woody “saves” her flock of sheep from the pretend harms of Mr. Potato Head, Peep uses her cane to draw Woody close and whisper something in his ear. Who knows what goes down when two toys are un-chaperoned and unwatched, but the grown moviegoers have some idea and it’s not all kid’s stuff.

#9: Ladybug Come-on
“A Bug’s Life” (1998)

Who knew bugs were so sexually aggressive? Another Pixar gem, this computer animated film centers on an ant colony that is essentially bullied into providing food for grasshoppers every year. They recruit a team of “warrior” bugs to protect them after their latest food offering winds up destroyed, but these “warrior” bugs are actually a traveling circus act. This includes Francis, the gruff, but visually appealing male ladybug that everyone thinks is a female, and as such, is constantly being hit on, usually in some really crude ways. Most notable is this request to “pollinate,” which, ya know, is a wink and a nudge for something a little more adult.

#8: Oral Sex Insinuation
“The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

As far as children’s films go, this one was surprisingly dark at times. Especially considering the franchise is populated by household appliances and semi-orgasmic computers The story follows a group of appliances, led by a toaster, who head out into the world in search of their beloved owner. But before they leave, they trade some rather icy words with an air conditioning unit doing a Jack Nicholson impersonation. While the unit attempts to shame and humiliate the crew for its mission, it throws a particularly inappropriate barb at the vacuum. Because we all know what vacuums do really well.

#7: Genie and the Earthquake
“Aladdin and the King of Thieves” (1996)

When you’ve been cooped up in a bottle for a few thousand years, chances are your mind can get stuck on some dirty things. Unlike the first “Aladdin” sequel, this second follow up to the 1992 smash hit did feature the genius comedic stylings of Robin Williams, and it also gave us quite a few interesting lines. During one scene in particular, bandits show up at Jasmine and Aladdin’s wedding, and the vibrations from the rampaging elephants causes Genie to make a not-so-subtle reference to wedding-night consummation. Because what kid doesn’t know what goes down in the honeymoon suite?

#6: Anna and Foot Size
“Frozen” (2013)

The sisterly bond may have provided the happily-ever-after in this Disney hit, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t any man-related adventures along the way. Princess Elsa has magical ice powers and has unleashed an eternal winter on the kingdom of Arendelle. Her sister, Anna, sets out after her to help make things right, but not before making the acquaintance of a young gentleman. On their journey to locate Elsa, Anna informs Kristoff that their argument was prompted by her impromptu engagement to a man she’d met the same day. Kristoff chastises Anna, stating that she doesn’t know anything about him, including his shoe size. Which doesn’t matter…until it does.

#5: Cat and the Hoe
“The Cat in the Hat” (2003)

Mike Myers gives an almost unrecognizable performance as the famed Dr. Seuss character. In the fantasy comedy, he plays the feline with the red and white hat and a penchant for mischief who appears to show two little kids how to have a good time. Hijinks ensue, like Thing 1 and Thing 2, and a good chunk of the film is just family fun. But it wouldn’t be a children’s movie without a wink at the “adults”, and here, we’re treated to a moment between The Cat and a garden tool. One that is both tender and a little awkward.

#4: Mrs. Potato Head’s Mouth
“Toy Story 3” (2010)

Disney and Pixar writers are good at including a number of adult references so the bigger kids can relate. Some are innocent, and others…well, they’re a little tongue-in-cheek, so to speak. This third installment in the “Toy Story” trilogy follows Woody and his toy friends after they end up at a daycare center. The leader of the center’s toys, Lotso, has proven himself to be on the evil side and is about to imprison the new toys when Mrs. Potato Head starts giving him an earful. He responds by yanking off her detachable lips, prompting her husband to declare ownership of her mouth. Which is always awesome.

#3: Snow White’s Body Count
“Shrek” (2001)

This DreamWorks hit, starring Mike Myers as the title character, tells the story of an ogre who saves a princess and then falls in love with her. That course of events actually ends up thwarting the plans of the diminutive Lord Farquaad, who has his own designs on the princess. In fact, he was actually looking for any princess really, since his plan involves utilizing her nobility to become a king. And prior to settling on Princess Fiona, he consulted the Magic Mirror about Snow White, with her living situation, and perhaps, sexual proclivities, coming curiously into question.

#2: Tirade of Euphemisms
“Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993)

In this family-friendly comedy, Robin Williams plays Daniel Hillard, an out-of-work voice actor who goes into full costume as a nanny to be closer to his kids. The movie is a vehicle for Williams’ comedic genius, with plenty of slapstick, but also tons of snappy dialogue that might’ve flown past the radar of younger viewers. In one particular scene, Daniel-slash-Mrs. Doubtfire confronts his wife’s new beau, Stu, and launches into spiel of sex synonyms. That, and the part about her autoerotic bedroom activities, are decidedly not G-rated.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Mulan in the Lake
“Mulan” (1998)
- The Uvula
“Monster House” (2006)
- Drugs in the ‘60s
“The Santa Clause” (1994)
- Lord Farquaad [or is it Lord F*ckwad?]
“Shrek” (2001)

#1: Spit or Swallow
“Ratatouille” (2007)

This rodent-based Pixar film tells the tale of a rat who loves cooking. He loves it so much that he teams up with a human and uses the bigger mammal’s body to create mind-blowing, one-of-a-kind recipes. The partnership works out so well that their food attracts the attention of a notorious food critic with exceedingly high standards. Anton Ego’s standards are so high, in fact, that he doesn’t even like to keep “the food” in his mouth if he’s not satisfied. All of this sounds innocent enough. Maybe. But we know what you’re thinking. And we know what the writers were thinking, too.
