Ho Yay: Averted! The unnamed duck and alligator that Bill and Aldo are based on actually sleep in the same bed and go out on dinner dates in the book. But of course as this was a cartoon marketed to children, they had to tone the gay back quite a bit, to the point where there wasn't a trace of it in the series. As a result, Bill and Aldo are just two guys who have a very close, physical relationship. One that is scorned by many as being "wrong" or "unnatural". One where people are constantly trying to break them up and make them behave "normally". One where one group of people feels threatened by it and the other group feels disgusted by it. In fact, the pressure is so great that both of them even keep it a secret from their families and wear masks to better keep the charade and wait a minute.
