Children's cartoons are made by artists, and as we all know, artists are giant perverts. That's not a generalized statement based solely on our extensive hentai collection; we've got the evidence to prove it. Here are seven filthy cartoons made by the people who are practically raising our children for us.

(PSA: Unless your job is "masturbate to cartoons all day," you should probably assume all of the links in this article will get you fired if you click on them.)

The Creator Of Powerpuff Girls Slipped Pornography Into His Early Cartoons

If you grew up in the '90s, you've seen Craig McCracken's work. He was an art director on Dexter's Laboratory and 2 Stupid Dogs, and he created The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends.

All this despite being as flummoxed by hands as Rob Liefeld is by feet.

But before all that, McCracken was a mere poor CalArts student dicking around in his dorm.

Literally.

What you're looking at is a scene from No Neck Joe, a series of shorts McCracken made, presumably with his ear to the door in case his roommate walked in. Most of the episodes are one-note. No Neck Joe tries to do something with his neck, but can't because he doesn't have a neck. He's No Neck Joe. We can go slower if you want.

The jokes just fly by at breakneck speed.

And then, at the very end of the last cartoon, McCracken included three seconds of little Joe about to stick his littler Joe in three naked girls. But why? Was he checking to see if his classmates were still paying attention? If so, we guarantee that none of those students realized they were being trolled by the guy behind their future daughters' backpacks.

"Wanna see where all that neck fat went, ladies?"

No Neck Joe was picked up by Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation, which funded McCracken's next project, a superhero parody called The Whoopass Girls. That short is what got him his own Cartoon Network show, presumably after signing a clause specifying that he wouldn't try to sneak any tiny mutant orgies into it.

A Pixar Artist Animated A Short About Taking A Child To A Strip Club

Artist Teddy Newton has worked on everything from The Iron Giant to The Incredibles, but you know him best for the Oscar-nominated Day And Night -- that cool 3D/2D short that played before Toy Story 3 in theaters.

"What happens in Vegas stays in me."

But in 2004, Newton decided that he was tired of all this "critical acclaim" bullshit and released a short about a little kid whose stepfather drags him to a strip club.

Hopefully, Dad didn't blow all his money in the champagne room, because therapy ain't cheap.

Boys Night Out plays pretty much how you'd expect. Little Lindberg is left with his stepfather while his mother goes to Bible study. The stepdad then dresses him as a homeless man with lupus so they can go get boners together.

That hat being his father's rancid stretched-out sock is somehow the least disturbing part of this story.

From there we're treated to some very non-Disney images, while Lindberg looks equally confused and horrified:

"Wait, they get paid when they get a spanking? You and mom have been ripping me off!"

At one point, the stepdad orders "Honolulu Hardons" for him and the kid, which are thankfully just alcoholic beverages. We never thought we'd be thankful for "just" drunken babies. Lindberg then runs into his priest, who has some very specific fetishes.

He could live to be 100 and not utter enough Hail Mary's to make up for "humped a sexy crucifix."

Right when things couldn't get any worse for the kid, there's a plot twist: One of the dancers is Lindberg's own mother, a revelation that utterly breaks his poor psyche.

Looking at her child the same way she looks at a guy with a thousand bucks and an empty lap didn't help, either.

To be fair, Pixar can't say they didn't know what they were getting into when they hired this guy, since he first got their attention by drawing pun-errific Toy Story Rule 34:

A close second to Lord Of The Flies in the "babies trying to kill each other" department.

So he wasn't exactly working on A-list material. Maybe that's because he was also the writer, director, producer, and probably the caterer for the animated film Once Upon A Girl, which was about ... well, this shot sums it up neatly:

Or rather, these many, many, super-sticky shots.

It's the classic fairy tale you all know and love: Mother Goose gets put on trial for obscenity charges after telling the "true" (read: horny) versions of her fairy tales. The twist was that this was actually released in theaters and not gas station bargain bins, because Watergate had just happened and America needed healing, dammit.

According to the official DVD description, the various segments answer age-old questions like "Where did Jack really stick his magic beanstalk?" and "Who truly tried to eat Little Red Riding Hood?" A better one would be, "The fuck is wrong with you people?"

Also, is that a see-through dress, or is Joel Schumacher her stylist?

Most of the voices were done by cartoon veteran Frank Welker, which is insane, but also fortunate if you ever wanted to know what Megatron and Freddy from Scooby Doo sound like having sex. If poorly-drawn animated porn isn't your thing, Once Upon A Girl also has live-action segments starring Hal Smith from The Andy Griffith Show in a dress. And of course, the film ends with a full-on orgy erupting in the courtroom, as Smith sits there wondering what the fuck happened to his career.

The "Tootsie Roll Pop" Guys Made Duck Porn

Fred Wolf Films made a lot of things, but for our purposes, all you need to know is that they produced the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon from the '80s, and that Fred Wolf himself made the famous "How Many Licks" ad that will never stop airing.

"Tell me, you little shit! It's been 50 years!"

There's one production that looks slightly out of place in their official filmography, though. In the 1970s, people were trying to cash in on the "adult cartoon" fad started by Ralph Bakshi's Fritz The Cat. Charles Swenson was one of those people. Together with his friends at Fred Wolf Films (and with funding from B-movie madman Roger Corman), Swenson made a shameless Fritz ripoff which can only be described as Howard The Duck meets Yellow Submarine meets a zoophile's wet dream.

Cracked articles featuring duck tits count: three

Down And Dirty Duck (NSFW) is about an office worker who has frequent and terrifying sexual daydreams. Then he meets a talking duck, and the two have various adventures until he realizes the duck is female and (naturally) they fuck. That's the whole movie.

It seems they got real ducks to draw the movie, too.

The movie flopped, but shockingly, it did not get Swenson banned from the industry forever. He went on to write An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, became the creative director of Rugrats, and created Cartoon Network's Mike, Lu & Ogg. The lesson here, if you're paying attention, is that duck erotica pays off in the long run. So stick with your dream!

The Guy Behind The Bazooka Joe Comics Also Made Tijuana Bibles

BAZLOOKA JOE and his GANG HOW WOULD YOU LIKE To OH, 1b OKAY, TELL YOUR HAVE A STEAK DINNER LOVE To! MOTHER ILL BE WITH ME To NIGHT? RIGHT OVER  !

The wacky adventures of Bazooka Joe and his cohorts had all the humor of a Popsicle stick, but without the lasting taste of a delicious treat. Here's an example:

BAZOOKA JOE and his GANG H-b WUHAT IS THAT YOU'RE BUT A FRANKFURTER PAINTING, PESTY ITS A IS RED NOT YELLOW! FRANKFURTER! 3 MINIATURE 1 KNow! BUut 415

The only time a comic strip was so bad that it immediately cut to a commercial.

Bazooka Joe comics have been translated into multiple languages, and some even go for big money in auction houses. This makes it even more hilarious that their creator, Wesley Morse, also drew some rather explicit old-timey cartoon porn.

Your grandpa jerked off to this.

Tijuana Bibles were pornographic comic strips that first gained traction in the 1920s -- a difficult time when smutty material, much like paying jobs and food, wasn't exactly easy to find. Enter artists like Morse, armed with only pens and bad taste, to provide a service audiences clamored for. These comics were just as unfunny as his Bazooka Joe work, but with serious bonus racism!

The only reason she didn't bang a gong after every orgasm is that Morse ran out of drawing space.

Morse drew over 60 smut strips, according to his official site. And the fact that he was the only Tijuana Bible artist who didn't bother hiding his identity put him on the map. That's how he scored his lifetime Bazooka Joe gig. Once again, we learn that shame simply doesn't pay.

Colleen Coover wrote for Adventure Time and Pet Avengers (exactly what it sounds like), and has drawn tons of all-ages Marvel comics starring Spider-Man, the X-Men, and more. You'll recognize her art style by how impossibly cute it is.

She watches the Adam West Batman and gets sad that it never learned to lighten up and have fun.

In Coover's own words, "Funny, romantic, and very definitely erotic, Small Favors tells the story of Annie and her sprite-like girlfriend Nibbil filling their happy days with happy sex." And that's it. No cosmic threats or gritty angst -- nothing but fucking.

The First Animated Porn Ever Was Made By A Who's Who Of Classic Animators

If making movies during the Silent Era was difficult, then making a cartoon must have been close to magic. If it wasn't for a few dedicated geniuses, we wouldn't be sitting in our underwear watching muscular men scream at each other for 30 minutes.

Thanks?

One of those granddaddies of moving pictures was Winsor McCay, creator of Gertie The Dinosaur (1914), one of the first and most influential animations ever made. As the story goes, McCay was having a birthday party and his contemporaries decided to get him a gift befitting of his stature: crudely-drawn pornography.

Meet the real Steamboat Willie.

Eveready Harton In Buried Treasure, created circa 1928, is considered to be the world's first cartoon porn, and it was apparently made as a gag for one of the great innovators of animation. Disney animator Ward Kimball lists only some of the collaborators: Max Fleischer, creator of Betty Boop and the Popeye cartoons, Paul Terry, head of Terry Toons and Mighty Mouse, Walter Lantz, creator of Woody Woodpecker (appropriately), and Mutt And Jeff Studio, creators of ... Mutt And Jeff. Ask your grandparents.

And then show them ten seconds of this and ask them, "Why?"

The story follows the titular Eveready Harton, a mustachioed gentleman whose hard-on is ever-ready. (Oh hey, we just got that!) He tries to fuck everything in his path, from a young lady to an old man to some farm animals. At one point, he gets into a duel with a farmer over the privilege to have sex with a seductive donkey. Guess what their weapons of choice are.

Human cockfighting rings aren't at all what we thought they were.

After all his efforts to get laid are foiled, the short ends with a disheartened Eveready sticking his penis in a hole in a fence ... at which point a friendly cow sucks him off.
