It's always such an unexpected treat when you grow up and watch your favorite kids movies again, only to find dirty jokes in cartoons that you totally missed when you were younger. A lot of great animated movies will slip in some adult humor in order to please the parents who were dragged by their screaming kids into theaters. The Incredibles stands as one of Pixar's finest achievements because of its ability to appeal to both children and adults. And it's definitely true that some jokes in The Incredibles lean more toward the adult side than most people realize. Check out the list below for the best The Incredibles jokes you didn't catch the first time you watched the movie.

The Peeping Tom
The world of The Incredibles is filled with super-powered people saving the day on a regular basis, but apparently some use their abilities for more perverted purposes.

As Bob is metaphorically regaining his manhood after fighting the first android, his home life drastically improves. Whether he's spending time with his kids, getting back into shape, or buying a new car, it's clear he's a reinvigorated man. That's even more clear during a montage where Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl reignite some long-lost passion and can't keep their hands off each other.
