    In the New Adventures of Captain Planet, eco-villain Dr. Blight shot darts with mutagenic DNA at the Planeteers. Linka and Wheeler were hit, causing them to fall unconcious. When Wheeler wakes up, he realizes the dart caused him to shrink in size as he end up naked then dives for cover. From this, a brief cheek shot could be seen.

    The first time Donald Duck appeared naked in a cartoon was "On Ice" and he covered his nudity the first time on "Bellboy Donald".

    And he even does it today....[​IMG]

    Wow, old old thread raised from the dead...

    Anyway, anybody who's seen The Simpsons Movie will probably remember this scene:

    In a Matt Groening-related production, the gang from Futurama go the the Nude Beach Planetin Bender's Big Score. Cue jokes about Fry and painful agony with a particular part of his body.

    I recall an episode of Dexter's Lab where the ep starts with Deedee's morning as she wakes up singing , going about her morning routine, at one point she has gotten out of the shower, dried off and caught up in the middle of her song sings "I almost walked out naked"
    what was it called i cant find it

    I was just rewatching the first episode of Home Movies and baby Josie is naked. Paula is changing her diaper and she has her hand conveniently covering the bad part.
    Also, that Adam and Eve short in Animaniacs.

    The episode of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog featuring the Merhog had some sort of older mermaid character with absolutely gargantuan breasts that were covered by the smallest of sea shells.

    It wasn't really nudity, per se, but still, it left so little to the imagination that it may as well have been. I'm really really surprised they got away with it.

    When Ariel gets her human legs in The Little Mermaid, there's definitely some bare bum action going on for a few frames.

    Uh, not that I was specifically looking for it, of course... :shrug: ;)

    Ed edd n eddy had this a few times, in one of the episodes when a boomerang was in. At the very end of the episode you can see a bit of double d's butt. And in an episode of sam and max there is a part of a map that looks something that you wouldnt likely see in today's kids cartoon.

    Oh man....I remembered how shocked I was when I saw that. And speaking of a few frames, in who framed roger rabbit during Jessica's performance her reflection is naked. {Geez, the animators mustve been thinking dirty alot lol}

    Speaking of Ed, Edd n' Eddy, one of the funniest moments I recall was where Eddy and Rolf were competing for the 'Hairy Chest of Resiliance' Badge, and had to run through a bunch of thorn bushes in their birthday suits.
    "The prickly maiden of the bramble awaits!"


    Anywho, doesn't 'Yatterman' often get away with this? I've not seen a full episode of the show (sadly), but I'm pretty sure they have Doronjo's clothing disintegrated in every episode. I recall seeing a clip where her chest was completely exposed. Definately wasn't expecting that.

    Yeah, Yatterman did that joke a lot, in fact it was a running gag in the original show, happening nearly every episode. In the 2008 remake, however, the joke was toned down to remove the explicit nudity. In fact, in episode 1, there's an explosion and right as Doronjo's breasts are about to be exposed, one of her lackeys covers her up and says: "Sorry, we're not allowed to do that joke anymore."

    Sometimes when animal characters lose their fur, you can see that they've been wearing boxers underneath.

    There was also a TMS-produced anime called "Red Baron" in which a blonde-haired female baddie also gets her clothes torn off as a similar gag in one episode. The episode in question ran on US TV with the nudity intact on the Spanish station, Univision, back in the early 2000s.

    Even though the Spanish channels have slightly looser standards than the English ones, I was a bit surprised to see that on Saturday morning TV alongside a bunch of American cartoons they were also airing! :sweat:

    I usually refer to this as the kewpee doll-type nudity.

    Being reminded of the one Cow & Chicken episode "P.E." where Chicken, Flem and Earl transfer to a different school and get their clothes stolen while in the shower and are forced to find a place to hide while avoiding the other studios (including a few peaks at their kewpee-doll torsos).

    Better than to go through the usual taboo motions perhaps.

    Sometimes this sort of things shows up now and the. An early use of it was with some baby character in a Woody Woodpecker cartoon "Kiddy League" from 1959. More recently it's been done to death on Family Guy.

    In many anime programs, it can vary. Dragon Ball in it's heyday often showed Son Goku in the buff without concern since the character didn't know any better. Many more adult-oriented shows can often get away with far more, but often limit themselves in places such as drawing parts of the human anatomy black or invisible since it's all class if you don't draw the naughty thing happening. Then of course you get the hentai stuff that is anything goes in terms of creative output.

    Reminds me of one Aardman-produced short film "Adam", and the way the character simply had it there anyway and that was it, yet they released this on VHS back in the 90's and gave some parents a scare over here!

    This can end up getting into a touchy subject as well, and there's been many cartoons were your characters are often half-naked below the waist (Tale Spin brings this to mind).

    Those moments always seem unusual if you had to think too hard about it. I'm reminded of Norb and Dag in The Angry Beavers often wearing PJ's to bed and such. It could be a question over identifying certain situations with how we view it in reality if anything.

    You can't fault that. Especially with animals since it's a given they're born to the world as they are. It's more through how we anthropomorphize them when you begin to see the human nature come out such as in wearing clothes. Even in drawing animals normally in animation, such concerns over sexual characteristics are handled in rudimentary terms of stereotypes (males=broad-shouldered and stocky, female=sleek and slender), and less on anatomical definitions (since they aren't drawn at all).

    Again, it gets to a touch area here. I would say yes if you count moments where an animal's fur is pulled or shaved off leaving it's skin behind (often times this is accentuated with underwear like you wonder how that get under there in the first place).

    It was, a classic mainstay from the 1970's version. There's a few anime in the 70's and 80's that often gave you such unusual 'wardrobe malfunctioning' moments such as that, though for transformation scenes, nothing best "Cutie Honey".
