How on Earth did Animaniacs stay on the air so long without offending parents everywhere? The Animaniacs has adult jokes in just about every single episode. From an ink blot test where Yakko only sees girls to Dot singing a version of the song "Making Whoopie," there's a lot that would go over a kid's head. Well, many fans who watched the show as children are adults now and, oh man, did they miss a lot.
There may be many more adult jokes on kids cartoons, but with how often Animaniacs had subtle grown-up humor, it basically cornered the market at the time. Kids might have caught on to the occasional toilet humor and burp gags, but allusions to Freud and Oedipus? Even if kids didn't get it, the characters themselves were quick to acknowledge what they were doing, poking fun at the audience, censors, and family values as a whole.Which dirty Animaniacs jokes were simply the raunchiest? The cleverest? You can look through this list of the ultimate adult jokes on Animaniacs and help decide which ones really pushed the limits of Animaniacs innuendo And if they're to much for you, well, then, goodnight, everybody!
This is possibly the most well-known dirty joke from the show. The Warners are investigating a crime, looking for clues, which is a pretty innocent start, right? Yakko instructs Dot to look for prints and she comes back to him with...well, Prince. When Yakko tries to clarify, he only makes things worse. You've got to hand it to Dot, though, her response to his suggestion is pretty priceless and thoroughly grown-up.
