Ah, becoming an adult can be a blessing and a curse in many ways, but to re-watch some of our favourite childhood movies and realise that dayum, there's some dark, adult sh*t in them, can sometimes be a bit terrifying.
To be young and naive again, amiright?!
Here are some scenes in kids movies that have serious subliminal messages that you totally missed as a kid. Try and not feel violated...
1. TOY STORY 2: When Buzz gets 'excited' seeing Jessie be a ~boss b*tch~
2. ALADDIN AND THE KING OF THIEVES: This sex joke Genie threw in mid-earthquake
3. THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE: Kronk er 'pitches a tent' in his PANTS!
Morning glory, babes?
4. TOY STORY: Sid's toy Legs is actually a hooker...
You work that room, hun.
5. SHREK: Lord Farquaad's name totally sounds like 'fuckwad'
6. MADAGASCAR: Sugar Honey Iced Tea, a total acronym for shit
7. HERCULES: Mummy issues! #incest
Yah you heard right, after leaving a theatre, Hurcules states: "That Oedipus thing? Man, I thought I had problems!"
Oedipus was a mythical Greek king who according to legend, killed his own father and married his mother.
8. SHREK (again): Shrek makes a penis size joke about Lord FUCKWAD
Little man, little dick?
9. ALADDIN: Jafar making Jasmine a sex slave
Dirty, dirty man.
10: SPONGEBOB: Soap prison joke
Ok so this may not be a movie, but Spongebob was a massive part of all our childhoods...
"Don't drop'em" good old Spongebob tells Gary...classic claps all round
There was also this beauty...
We see what you did there...cheeky.
11. ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS: Ruthless genitalia chopping off joke
"Let me tell you about the time I used a sharpened clam shell to turn a T-Rex into a T-Rachel."
12. MRS. DOUBTFIRE: Here's a circumcision joke to make you cringe for days
Ok so, this is probably one of the most under-the-radar jokes in kids film HISTORY (and the grossest).
Basically, "gribenes" is a kosher dish of chicken or goose skin cracklings served with fried onions, and a "mohel" is a man who performs circumcisions. So, the translation of this line basically is, "I should never buy chicken skin from a guy who gives circumcisions. It's so chewy."
13. WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY: More penis jokes!
When Veruca Salt asked about snozzberries and Willy Wonka didn't really answer, so a 'snozzberry' is the glans of a penis, according to Roald Dahl's My Uncle Oswald. Cheeky bugger.
14. WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT: Sex toy product placement
Jessica tells her bunny lover, "I've loved you more than any woman's ever loved a rabbit." HMM...beastiality??
Anyway... we're gonna go take a cold shower to wash our childhood away...
