List Rules Vote up the dirty jokes on Powerpuff Girls that went over your head as a child.

The Powerpuff Girls is a Cartoon Network favorite, one with plenty of innuendos and adult jokes. During their original run, there were jokes. Yes, the dirty jokes on The Powerpuff Girls are abundant, and while some were more subtle than others, the grown-up humor is undeniably present throughout the animated series.

Interestingly enough, the show's original development came in 1992 as a short titled "Whoopass Stew!" Obviously that concept wouldn't be geared towards children, but after a name change, the first Powerpuff Girls pilots were shown in 1995 and 1996. While the inappropriate jokes may have been watered down, the adult humor was still slyly present in almost every episode of Powerpuff Girls.

The Pencil Penis Representation

This isn’t particularly subtle, as Ms. Bellum helps the mayor “sharpen his pencil,” which initially snapped when he saw her cleavage. Not only do the pencil and fingers holding them resemble a penis and testicles, but because she’s holding his hand, it appears as if a sexual act is being performed. This is one of the more blatant visuals you’re going to see in a kid’s cartoon.

This exchange, in which Bubbles shares with another little girl that Professor Utonium made her and the girls by accident, gets a pretty surprising and dark response as she reveals that she was an unplanned pregnancy.

In “Stray Bullet,” the trio is trying to decide what to name their squirrel, leading Bubbles to proclaim that she knows the squirrel is a girl because “squirrels eat nuts.” This is a bit risqué, but it’s one of those reminders that this series was initially intended to be for adults before Cartoon Network toned it down.

69. Nice. Also “Yodel in the valley,” which, if you don’t know, is apparently a euphemism for cunnilingus.

Mojo is in the slammer, and his rather intimidating cellmate hovers over him as the narrator says, “Love is in the air, can’t ya just smell it?” Yikes.

On the Christmas special episode “Twas the Fight Before Christmas,” Santa threatens to put Princess Morbucks on the permanent naughty list. The list itself includes the name “Adolph Schickelgruber.” Adolf Hitler’s grandmother’s name was Schickelgruber. An impressive little allusion, especially for a show aimed at kids.

Buttercup Slips Condoms to Professor

In “Mommy Fearest,” the girls set Professor up on a date. They don’t just schedule the time, either: they put on his tie and gel his hair, supplying him with breath mints, cologne, cuff links, and flowers. However, in the process, Buttercup says not to forget, “some of these” as she slips something - almost certainly condoms - into Professor’s pocket.

What a Drag


What a Drag is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list Adult Jokes on The Powerpuff Girls That You Missed as a Kid

After being shown fake Powerpuff Girls who are clearly dudes in costumes of the girls, the narrator says “What a drag,” which is phenomenal pun work, and a solid joke that parents are more likely than kids to actually get. It's a winking reference that's still inoffensive enough to keep parents from worrying about their child watching the show.
