Sex on Planet X

I can't explain it, but I'm on a real Bullwinkle kick. Maybe it's nostalgia. Maybe I finally understand it. I don't know. The fact is, I just can't get enough.

While watching an episode the other day I started looking in the backgrounds because... because, well I don't know. Anyhoo, I happened to notice a book with an interesting title on a bookshelf in one scene.

Now bear in mind, this is 1959 and a children's program. This little hidden gag wouldn't be out of place on the Simpsons or the Family Guy, but it defintiely wasn't the norm in '59.

See for yourself.

I'm so glad you posted this! I saw this episode like 7 years ago and I've been telling people about it and wondering if I've been seeing things since then.

Thank you!!!

I was watching Bullwinkle on my computer and paused it to get the phone and boom! What do I see? Sex on planet X. Very subversive

I saw it in the early 90's. Thought I was seeing things as well. Have not run into anyone else who has witnessed it until now. Thanks for the confirmation.

I saw this like 15 years ago or so, when i was like in a band, and i was amazed it was there, and then i wrote a song called Sex on Planet "X". lol

Not sure if i still have a copy of the lyrics anywhere? :S

I wasn't sure if it was real, but now seeing the photo from the show, it's just how i remember.
