    The French Tickler

    SpongeBob once had a character on the show named "The Tickler" who happened to be French. That seems innocent enough until you hit Google and realize a "French tickler" is, perhaps unsurprisingly, a sex term.

    A Totally Visible Fish Phallus

    This isn't even a subtle joke. In Season 2, episode 3, "Bubble Buddy," a fish's genitals appear to be on full display. Maybe the animators assumed nobody would be looking, but nothing gets past the internet. Some naysayers may claim it's just his belly button, but then why would it be so low?

    Squidward's Unsubtle Innuendo

    In Season 7, episode 18, "Krusty Dogs," Mr. Krabs decides to sell hot dogs at the Krusty Krab, to which Squidward says he hopes Mr. Krabs's "whole wiener thing” will “blow right up in his face." It doesn’t take a particularly dirty mind to interpret this inappropriately, just one that’s been exposed to the adult world.

    SpongeBob Misunderstands Being 'Assertive'

    In Season 1, episode 18, "Walking Small," SpongeBob is instructed to be "assertive," to which he responds by sticking his finger in and out of a pocket in a perfectly juvenile visual gag that only really registers for viewers over, say, 11 years old.
