These Cartoon Conspiracy Theories Will Ruin Your Childhood

Helga is the star of Hey Arnold, not Arnold.

This makes complete sense. A Thought Catalog writer asserts that we know more about Helga — her sucky parents, showboating sister, etc. — than Arnold. Helga is also the only character who delivers long monologues, and her obsession with Arnold is one of the show’s focal points. Plus, the show’s title only exists because Helga yells it out loud.

Each SpongeBob SquarePants character represents one of the seven deadly sins.

Another hypothesis that totally works once you think about it. A ThoughtCatalog writer asserted that Patrick is sloth; Squidward is wrath; Mr. Krabs is greed; Plankton is envy (he’s green, too!); Gary is gluttony; Sandy is pride (TEXAS); and SpongeBob is lust.

Aladdin is set in the future.

Despite what you may have thought growing up, claims Aladdin is set far into a post-apocalyptic future. And there are hints sprinkled in the movie that support this, if you look closely. First, the genie says he was locked in his lamp for 10,000 years. Plus, the genie tells Aladdin his clothes are “so third century,” which would have to set the film in 10,300 at least.

The Magic School Bus kids grew up to become the characters on Captain Planet.

They do look oddly similar, after all.
