'Animaniacs' once slipped an absolutely filthy Prince joke into an episode
Kids' cartoons often smuggle innuendo-laden jokes into their scripts that are aimed purely at the adult audience that might be watching too.
Such is the case with this Prince gag in a 1993 episode of the classic TV series Animaniacs, which has resurfaced in the wake of the singer's death this week.
In the episode entitled 'Hercule Yakko', a parody of Agatha Christie's Poirot, the character Yakko instructs Dot to dust a crime scene for prints...

It plays out as follows:
Yakko: Number one sister, dust for prints...
Dot: I found Prince! [she's shown carrying Prince)
Yakko: No no no, fingerprints.
[Dot looks at Prince, who smiles suggestively)
Dot: I don't think so!
