Children’s movies are, well, made for kids but Pixar has set itself apart from other kid’s entertainment by making films that viewers of all ages will enjoy, including parents. In fact, after rewatching Finding Nemo or The Incredibles for the fiftieth time, some adults may have noticed that some jokes seem to be written exclusively for them. That’s because nearly all your favorite Pixar movies, from Toy Story to Inside Out, probably have at least one joke that’s a bit too complex (and dirty) to be understood by kids but is guaranteed to make any adult laugh. We combed through every Pixar animated film and found a wealth of subtle and blatantly obvious dirty jokes buried in the squeaky clean worlds. Here are 10 of the best.
10. Cars: Flashing Lights
After a big win, hot-shot Lightning McQueen meets a couple of female fans, who show their adoration by “flashing” him. Get it?
9. Finding Nemo: Tanks But No Tanks
When the Tank Gang decides to jam the filter in an attempt to escape, their living environment quickly becomes disgusting. Gurgle, the group’s germaphobe, is exasperated by the new conditions and yells “Don’t you people realize we are swimming in our own sh-”
Before he can finish the thought, Peach, the starfish, says, “Shhh! Here he comes!” It’s a clever misdirect that gets dangerously close to earning the film a PG-13 Rating.
8. Toy Story 2: Buzz’s Wings Spring
At the end of Toy Story 2, the gang is finally reunited, with a couple new additions. When Jessie, a member of Woody’s round-up gang, shows off some of her skateboarding moves and the wings of Buzz’s space suit suddenly spring into action. You get the idea…
7. A Bug’s Life: Drink Up
When Flick enters the big city to find a hero to protect his ant colony from Hopper and his evil gang of grasshopers, he first encounters a mosquito looking to take the edge off with a delicious bloody mary. In the bug world, a bloody mary is literally the blood of someone named Mary but based on the mosquito’s behavior, it’s still potent enough to get you slizzard.
6. Inside Out: Bearly a Joke
Leave it to the brilliant minds at Pixar to work in a subtle, lighthearted joke about one of the popular gay subcultures when referencing San Francisco.
5. Ratatouille: Veggin’ Out
What exactly is Skinner referring to when he warns Alfredo about getting “too familiar” with vegetables? Is he taking a page out of Otter’s book? Yeah, he is. He’s talking about fucking vegetables.
4. The Incredibles: “And Got Busaaaay”
Syndrome’s mind is blown when he realizes Mr. Incredible ended up marrying Elastigirl and starting a family. Of course, he has his own unique and douchey way of putting that into words.
3. Cars: For a Good Time
Cars isn’t the most popular Pixar film but it might secretly be the dirtiest. In the film, Lightning McQueen is driving when he passes a sign for a “Top Down” Truckstop. This quick site gag makes it clear that in the Cars universe, truck stops are strip clubs. Not convinced? It’s nearly impossible to see but just below it reads, “All Convertible Waitresses.”
2. A Bug’s Life: Pollination Nation
A couple of drunken flies try to see some entertainment at P.T. Flea’s Circus and one of them ends up hitting on Francis the ladybug with the most disturbing pickup line of all time.
1. Toy Story 3: Don’t Take My Wife, Please
When an irritated Lotso plucks the lips off of his wife, Mr. Potato head responds with “Hey, no one takes my wife’s mouth but me.” It’s both touching and super creepy.
