Animators and writers at Pixar have often cited that the movies they make are for adults, just as much as they are for kids. As such, a certain amount of adult humor slips into their projects that kids won't get.

Toy Story

  • One of Sid's toys, a fishing rod with Barbie legs, is a hooker.
  • While Andy starts looking around his room for Buzz, Mr. Potato Head quietly gets Woody's attention by having Etch draw a hangman noose. That means he's intending to hang Woody.
  • When Slinky stands up for Woody, Mr. Potato Head points to Slinky, removes his lips, and does the kiss-my-ass joke, which makes Mr. Spell laugh.
  • When Bo Peep says to Woody, "Whadda ya say I get someone else to watch the sheep tonight?", she might be referring to having sex.
  • After Buzz tells Woody that he can fly around the room with his eyes closed, Woody calls Buzz "Mr. Light-Beer."
  • When all the other toys marvel at Buzz, he says to Woody, "I think the word you're searching for is 'Space Ranger.'" Then, Woody wants to call Buzz a bad word, but instead, he says, "The word I'm searching for, I can't say because there are preschool toys present."
  • Woody says "I think you had enough tea for today" refering to the fact that he was drunk.
  • During the Mrs. Nesbit scene, Buzz is "drunk" on imaginary Darjeeling (alcoholic tea).
  • In one scene (before Woody calls them from Sid's house), Mr. Potato Head and Hamm are seen playing Strip BattleShip.

A Bug's Life

  • During the circus scene, one of the Fly Brothers says to Francis (thinking he's a girl), "Hey, cutie! Wanna pollinate with a real bug?". He may be talking about sex.
  • After the mosquito drinks his "Bloody Mary - O+", he gets drunk.
  • After finding out that the "warriors" are circus bugs, Flik organizes a "meeting" with them. When Princess Atta questions it, Flik states that it's "strictly BYOB". BYOB is a acronym for "Bring Your Own Booze," while "booze" is a slang term for alcoholic drinks.

Toy Story 2

  • When Buster runs into Andy's room he knocks down a log cabin playset. When he knocks it down, it's shown that Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are having their own "fun".
  • When the toys first encounter the Barbie toys in Al's Toy Barn, they gape at them as if attracted. Later, when meeting Tour Guide Barbie, Mr. Potato Head reminds himself repeatedly under his breath that he's a married spud.
  • When Al wakes up from the TV, he says, "No, officer, I swear...", like he was getting arrested for drunk driving.
  • When Woody tries to mimic his TV self by telling Bullseye to "run like the wind" and falling off with the saddle, Bullseye looks down and then walks away bashfully while covering his "privates".
  • When he sees the complex baggage conveyor belts at the airport, Mr. Potato Head drops a load out of his bottom. When someone is very surprised about something, they might jokingly say that they cr*pped their pants.
  • After Jessie springs into action to help Buster out of Andy's room in an emergency, Buzz's love-struck reaction causes his wings to go spring erect. This is suggestive of Buzz having been turned on by the new woman in his life.

Monsters, Inc.

  • During Mike and Celia's date, Mike accidently mentions Sulley as being the most beautiful monster in Monstropolis when he shows up against the window, confusing Celia. When Sulley explains to Mike about the situation he's in, they hide their faces behind the restaurant menu, much to Celia's anger. This may imply that Celia thinks Mike and Sulley are having a secret relationship.
  • When the Yeti offers Mike and Sulley some yellow snow cones, Mike looks at it funny. Yellow snow is typically known for having been urinated on. The Yeti recovers him from the awkward pause by saying that it's lemon.

Gurgle: Don't you people realize we are swimming in our own--
Peach: Shh! Here he comes!
  • When Marlin and Dory are in the East Australian Current, Dory can be heard talking in her sleep saying, "Yes, I'm a natural blue.", referring to when a woman says that they did not dye their hair blond.
  • When Darla enters P. Sherman's office, "The Murder" from Bernard Herrmann's score for Alfred Hitchock's 1960 film Psycho underscores her arrival. This is indicative of the terror that Darla brings to the story, echoing the harrowing events from the Hitchcock movie.
  • While not exactly humorous, it should be noted that the group that Bruce is running for other sharks operates in a very similar manner to Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization that tries to help alcoholics recover from their addiction to alcohol.
  • When Sheldon, Tad, Pearl, and Nemo are at the Drop Off, they refer the back of the boat the "butt".

The Incredibles

  • During the montage after Bob accepts the job and kissed Helen, they are seen sneaking past Violet to their bedroom. Then, both of them pinch each other's butts while passing through each other.


  • When everybody notices that Lightning was missing after Mack arrives in California, Mack asks "Did I forget to wipe my mud flaps?" which means he forgot to wipe his poop.
  • When Sally asks what Flo what she sells while in traffic court, she says, "I have gas." Ramone and Mater begin laughing. They're probably laughing about the gas that comes from farting.
  • When Minny and Van leave Radiator Springs, Lightning tells them that he is in "Hillbilly Hell".
  • Relating the story of Doc Hudson's past, Lightning states that he won three Piston Cups. Startled at what he misheard, Mater exclaims, "He did what in his cup?!". thinking that Lightning said he pissed in his cup. Pissed is another word for urinated.

  • Syndrome claims that the big "S" on his suit is for "Sitter" after Jack-Jack's babysitter, Kari asks him what it stands for. Syndrome continues saying that he was originally going to have initials for "Baby Sitter," but then he'd be going around wearing a big "B.S." on his suit (As in bulls**t).

  • When Mater ask Carmen for Mia, she says she doesn´t remember. Then Mater shows her a whitewall wheel pretending to convince her. Carmen says she may remember, till finally Mater shows her another three wheels, convincing Carmen. This is a clear example of bribery.
