Hello, hello Generation Z and Generation Y! Yes, I include everyone, me. Because whether you’re 18 or 35 today, there are movies and cartoons that we’ve all seen (some even dozens of times). Small cinematic creations that graced our mornings before school or Sunday evenings if that was the only TV channel you were allowed. In any case, when we remember these movies, we get a small smile of nostalgia on our faces. After reading this top, it won’t happen again. Instead of a light smile, you will have big bloody tears. Prepare to be turned upside down.
1. Teletubbies are cannibals, their vacuum cleaner knocks them out of order
Attention, not recommended for persons under 18 years of age. Besides the fact that they are most likely drugged, there are a ton of other creepy theories about these little critters. Or… Monsters? Are stuffed animals alive? What is it exactly? Among the rumors floated: The Teletubbies will have sex with their vacuum cleaner (which reminds us of the loan of this week’s champion). I’ll let you judge for yourself, but this passage is still… Intriguing? “Noo-noo washes Po”, yes, yes… “Laundry”, yes.
Some take the vice even further, judging that they are actually cannibals. For these people (as here), the idea is defended by two elements: what they eat for breakfast is mysterious and may simply be cooked up from other Teletubbies. Moreover, detractors claim that if only 4 Teletubbies appear on the screen, it is because they simply tripped and ate other residents. eerie.
2. Mr. Krabs would also be a cannibal (SpongeBob SquarePants)
Just as the Teletubbies can eat their friends for breakfast, some claim that the magic ingredient that ensures the success of the pies sold at Mr. Krabs’ restaurant may just be crabmeat. In any case, that’s the theory being put forward by many Reddit users! In their opinion, this greedy character, the only crab in town, could very well kill all his friends to serve them in his establishment. Some even go so far as to think that Mrs. Krabs would have gone to the frying pan as well. Literally.
3. …and Bikini Bottom was created as a result of nuclear testing
For those who didn’t have a childhood or grew up in a cave: Bikini Bottom is nothing more than the town where episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants take place. For some cartoon enthusiasts, Bikini Bottom is actually under Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Namely: the site where the US government conducted 23 nuclear tests during the Cold War. If we follow this idea, Bob and his friends would be nothing more than aquatic mutants whose bodies and minds have been deformed by nuclear waste. It explains a lot… For example: why the characters dress like a 50s dad, why they still send letters, why it’s okay for a boy to live in a pineapple, for a sponge to be best friends with a starfish in swimming shorts, or a squirrel in an astronaut suit under the ocean .
4. Peppa Pig takes place in a world where all people are long dead
These ugly pigs (it must be said that they are) would evolve in a post-apocalyptic world in which the human race would be destroyed. After this event, mammals would have reached the top of the food chain, adapted and developed ever stronger intelligence. “Lower” animals such as fish or reptiles would then become their pets. Some take this theory further, claiming that the disappearance of people is related to a nuclear disaster. The possible waste and radiation left behind by derelict power plants explains, among other things, why all the animals in the cartoon have grass faces or why elephants and pigs are the same size. Otherwise, it’s just a guy a little drunk drew, and that’s it.
5. The world of “Shrek” was devastated by nuclear war
In the family of post-nuclear drama cartoons, I’d like Shrek right now. There is a theory that the actions of all four films take place in the rather distant future, after a great nuclear holocaust. Then the radiation could be the source of some magic (cc talking gingerbread, cats in boots, not-so-cute fairies and singing donkeys). Fortunately, despite the disappearance of a significant number of people, the All Star song has stood the test of time and is still heard thousands of years later. Phew. Come on, we’ll give it a listen.
6. Harry Potter and Hermione Granger are siblings
There are thousands of theories about this saga, but this is one of the most popular! According to her, Hermione will be Harry’s older sister. When we know that she was born on September 19, 1979 and Harry was born on July 31, 1980, it’s not impossible. Parents, of course, did not sit idle, but it happens. At birth, the girl would be hidden and entrusted to the Grangers to protect her from the forces of evil, but her biological parents would be Lily and James Potter. Some go so far as to believe that if Harry doesn’t know anything about the story, Hermione does. This could explain why she knows Harry’s life so well, to the point of being in charge of him during the saga, as if she knew him better than anyone, or why she spent her time protecting him. Remember how Harry blurted out about her, “She’s like a sister to me” in Hallows? (Yeah, no. This story doesn’t stand up to criticism. It’s just two best friends who love each other like two brothers and sisters, okay.)
7. Toy Story 3 mentions the Holocaust
This time, we owe this hypothesis to film critic Jordan Hoffman. This reveals several troubling elements. Let’s go back to the scenario: the toys are abandoned by Andy, as the Jews were abandoned by the peoples among whom they lived. Woody and his friends hide in the attic to avoid death, but are caught and sent to Sunnyside Kindergarten, a horrible place where games are abused. The parallel with the Jewish people is quite obvious here. In Pixar, evil toys prevent the characters from escaping. Because of this, Woody and the gang end up on a conveyor belt with a bunch of other damaged games on their way to the incinerator. The parallel is painful enough to write, but you certainly see the rapprochement with the police helping the Nazis fill the trains and the finality of the crematorium ovens. When the main characters are about to die, hand in hand, they are saved by little aliens. Then the film critic makes contact with the Allies, who liberated the camps in 1945. What do you think? Worrying, right?
8. Every Winnie the Pooh character represents a drug
Ahhh, here’s something funnier. According to this theory, Coco Lapin, who is always doing a thousand things in a second, drinks Coca-Cola. For Tiger, who jumps everywhere, this is ecstasy. Bourique, being on crack, is never motivated to do anything, and depresses H24. Piglet takes heroin or mushrooms. The result: he constantly trembles and freaks out about everything. Good old Vinny is finally a topic of discussion! Some people think he drinks weed because he’s always cold. Others attribute excessive honey consumption to LSD addiction. Anyway, enjoy life in the Forest of Blue Dreams (it’s normal that everyone lives in a forest with that name, seriously).
9. The Okhul children exist only in Angelica’s imagination
A somewhat creepy assumption. Those who grew up in the 90s couldn’t have missed this iconic cartoon, but they might have missed some details… For some fans, it’s crystal clear: Angelica, also known as “Blanket Fluffy”, would actually suffer from mental disorders and schizophrenia. They calculated that all the other children present on the screen would indeed have died immediately after their birth and would have continued to exist only in the imagination of the little girl. I let you watch this little video. Crip-crip-cry-e-e-e.
10. In Titanic, Jack would be a time traveler
According to some fans, the character portrayed by DiCaprio actually comes from… the future. Evidence? He talks about fishing in a lake in Minnesota that does not yet exist in 1912. He also talks about riding the Rose in Santa Monica when it was built just 5 years after the flood. Ouloulouou evidence. What do you mean it’s just small script errors??
11. The Smurfs are part of a cult
Why can you think so? Little people, all dressed the same, except for the guy we add the “Tall” part to, dancing around the campfire, holding hands, who never take off their white caps and the almost complete absence of female smurfs,… Yes, that starts a lot do.
12. In Grease, Sandy dies at the beginning of the movie.
If you translate “Summer Nights”, you can read “I saved her life, she almost drowned.” This song is actually about the meeting between Sandy and the character played by John Travolta. The theory is that the young woman probably really drowned, and the film is just a hallucination of her oxygen-deprived brain. For proponents of this idea, this explains why people start dancing or singing in the middle of a movie. They also interpret the final image, that of Sandy and Danny riding in a flying car, as a metaphor for the departure from Earth to heaven. Yes, it’s all made up.
13. Just like Carl, in Up
Some fans believe that Carl, such a lovable grandfather from Up, would actually die in his sleep at the beginning of the movie when he has to leave the house. Then the film will be a reflection of life after death. Russell has effectively become Carl’s guardian angel, allowing him to finally come to terms with the fact that he doesn’t have a child. The house would be a metaphor for Carl’s attachment to the physical world. Finally, Paradise Falls would be paradise.
14. The world of Monster & Co was destroyed by a plague
Some fans came to this conclusion, trying to understand why cartoon monsters are so afraid of physical contact with children. They think monsters tried to go through the portal to get to Earth back in the year 1300. Thus, they enter a world ravaged by the plague, but, not knowing about the epidemic, do not be careful and return it to Monstropolis. Thousands of them died. A traumatic episode is the basis of this phobia of physical contact.
