Are these words acceptable?

      I have been watching cute tv shows like Adventure Time and I love it. I get that cartoons like that have references or hidden jokes that only adults get. It's not the hidden funny that gets me it's some of the words. Growing up there is always certain words deemed unacceptable. I was taught to say bottom not butt, mad not pissed or pretty not sexy. These shows seem to use them though, just a thought because I know kids as young as 3 are seeing these shows.

Those aren't really "kid" shows. I would think more tween/teen.

Butt I don't care about, pissed I would not want to see in a kids show (but looking back at movies from our youth, it is pretty eh), and sexy I don't think is an acceptable way for children to learn to refer to people.

Cartoon network isn't exactly wholesome programming. Try something like Disney jr if that's concerning to you.

I would be very surprised to hear "pissed" in a kid's show. "sexy" is eh, as long as it wasn't being used in a vulgar way. "butt" I don't see any issue with at all.
