Remember all those cartoons like Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory and Spongebob Squarepants that we adored throughout our childhood? Those fun-filled mid-afternoon TV sessions when we'd just got home from school? Of course you do - who doesn't?

But what we don't often remember are all of those jokes that, at the time, had us going "huh?" and "what does that mean?" while our parents scurried off into the kitchen to hide their laughter!

But now that we're older and with a significantly dirtier mind, we can catch all the jokes the writers managed to sneak past the censors. And let me tell you, there are hundreds of them - kids' shows are the ultimate champions of getting utter filth past the radar!

Here are 6 of the funniest hidden innuendos from popular kids' cartoons!

1. "It's known as a sextant..." from Ed, Ed, and Eddy

Just because, you know, the word "sextant" is really, really funny.

2. "Honey... I don't think that's gonna fit" from Dexter's Laboratory

Dexter’s parents seem to be having an awful amount of trouble fitting something into a tight space...

3. "I sat on a banana" from Jimmy Neutron

When this legendary cartoon about a child genius and his crazy family slipped in this sly "sitting on a banana" joke, parents across the country were laughing hysterically. No doubt a few of us joined without knowing why, too!

4. Did the Powerpuff Girls give the professor condoms?!

Be quick or you'll miss it, but I'm fairly sure Buttercup puts some condoms into the professor's top pocket! Watch when she says "and some of these"!

5. "Finger Prince!" from Animaniacs

This innuendo placed in Animaniacs is an oldie but a goodie.

The trio are deep into solving a crime when Yakko tells his sister, Dot, to dust for finger prints. But Dot mistakenly hears the word ‘Prince.’ You know what happens next...

6. "Don't drop the soap" from Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants: the undisputed kings of dropping in the funniest, wittiest and down-right weirdest sexual innuendos. I could have included a quite staggering array of them, but here's my favorite: the classic "don't drop the soap"!
