What if none of the kids that were on The Rugrats ever existed? In theory, all the babies were imaginary and were made up by Angelica after being traumatized by multiple devastating events. It's said Tommy was a stillborn, which is why Stu is constantly in the basement making toys. Chuckie died at birth along with his mom, which explains why Chaz is always so nervous. The DeVilles had an abortion, which lead Angelica to create the twins (she didn't know the sex of the unborn child).
Then in All Grown Up, Angelica became addicted to drugs, which caused her to bring back her childhood creations.
2. 'The Flinstones' Live In The Post-Apocalyptic Future
Remember when The Flinstones and The Jetsons were all you wanted to see on Saturday morning? They were both about families, living in completely different times. Or not. What if both series took place in the future? The theory here is that The Flinstones are living in a world where technology once existed. However a nuclear explosion forced them to rebuild their life on Earth. Those rich enough (cue The Jetsons) left earth to life a high-tech life in space.
Sounds crazy, but it makes sense too!
3. The Count On 'Sesame Street' Actually Feeds On All The Children
Think about it; what is a vampire doing in the land of Muppets, birds and grouches? It might be because he feeds on the neighborhood kids and uses the adults as minions. This explains why we never see the same kids for very long.
A Reddit user came up with this crazy story: "Scooby was bred as a super-intelligent test subject for the Soviets' space program, but escaped to America with a defecting scientist when he was a puppy. He has a speech impediment because he's smart enough to learn English, but his mouth can't form words perfectly. And the titleScooby-Doo, Where Are You!is a reference to the CIA searching for him."
It makes sense. Why else would the government be messing with the gang's plans all the time? Was it to get Scooby back?
Fans have shared their thoughts and detailed explanations of why the characters of Springfield never age or change with time. Yes, we're aware that it is an animated show, and with that comes the ability to have non-aging characters. However, this fan theory makes a whole lot of sense.
The "Tesseract theory" explains how the characters are trapped in Springfield as it exists on a plane that is able to be in more than one place at once, grows and shrinks, and shifts throughout the world.
This proposition starts with the classic song we hear at the beginning of every show. During the intro, Will gets into it with "a couple of guys" who supposedly beat him up. The beat down lead to his death. When he takes a cab (that seemed "rare") the driver is really God, and instead of going to Bel-Air, the driver takes Will to heaven.
7. Ash Is Really In A Coma And Is Dreaming Everything
A highly detailed theory was shared on Wikipedia's dark fan theory site, Creepypasta. The story is that when Ash was hit by lightning in an early episode of Pokémon, he fell into a coma. Everything that goes on in the show is just him dreaming.
In 2005, a guy named Dave wrote a blog post explaining how the Care Bears are actually symbols of voodoo. He wrote that the name Care Bears sounds a lot like Carefours, the district of Port au Prince which is known for its voodoo practices. He also said the cloud city of Care-a-Lot could be the holy city of Lwa, which is "a divine reflection of Carefours." He also draws connections between the bears and different spirits and goddesses.
This theory proposes that Charlie is just imagining everything going on in his life. He does this while he's lying in a hospital bed dying of cancer. This could explain his "hairless, down-and-out state" of being.
10. The 'Winnie The Pooh' Characters Represent Forms Of Mental Illness
Each character in this beloved show has specific issues that they constantly need help solving. The Canadian Medical Association explains that Pooh has OCD, ADHD, and possibly an eating disorder. His friends also have their share of problems: Piglet suffers from anxiety, Eeyore battles depression, Owl is dyslexic, and Christopher Robin is thought to have schizophrenia.
A Redditor proposed this theory: "The people in Curious George have become aware that they are in a children's show/franchise OR that George has mysterious powers, and they are actively managing George to take advantage of the protective effect he creates/provides."
