    This isn't even a subtle joke; it's just straight-up visual inappropriateness. In Season 2, episode 3, "Bubble Buddy," a fish's genitals are on full display. Maybe the animators assumed nobody would be looking, but nothing gets past the Internet. Some naysayer may claim it's just his belly button, but then why would it be so low?
