Mind-Blowing Fan Theories About The 90s Cartoons That’ll Ruin Your Childhood

Every one would agree that childhood was the best part of life. Back at that time we were all really young and naive, no stress, no work, no pressure. You just had to eat, sleep, watch television and play, and just repeat the same everyday. Cartoons played an important role while growing up because cartoons made us believe in things we would never really understand. While watching cartoons we are just in another world which is far more adventurous than ours and I always wanted to live that. Fan theories are ridiculous most of the time but at time you really consider it for once and end up believing it.

These fan theories about the 90s cartoons might as well ruin your childhood favourites and I’m sure you will never look at these shows the same way you did before.

Courage- the cowardly dog had been one of my favourite. The show started off in 1999 on Cartoon Network, the concept was pretty simple- Courage a normal dog lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere with his owners Muriel and Eustace and every episode a creepy scary creature would visit their home to scare them off and eventually Courage would confront his fears and save the family anyhow. One bizarre fan theory stated that the dog Courage suffered from agoraphobia since his owners were too old to take him out. Hence, all those creepy monsters were actually normal people, but from the dog’s perspective, they all are pretty scary. So, basically the show is about an overactive imagination of a dog and how it perceives the world around it.

2. Pokemon

Have you ever wondered why Ash Ketchum is stuck at the age even after all those wars and fights and even after so many episodes for all those years? Even after completing years of competing leagues, Pokemon trainer Ash Ketchum never was seen from the age past 10. The explanation is that in one of the episode of Pokemon anime, Ash meets Ho-oh, a Pokemon whose Pokedex entry states it can grant eternal happiness to whomever sees it. Since Ash’s eternal happiness is to stay young forever and capture Pokemon, he doesn’t age at all.

3. Aladdin and the Magic Lamp

Surely, this was the best magical fantasy anybody would dream of. Before Doremon, Aladdin and his Genie were the world for all the kids. But a fan seemingly noticed a alarming similarities from the frame narrative at the beginning of Aladdin. Viewers on Reddit noticed that the salesman trying to pawn off the Genie lamp, and the Genie himself are actually the same. Hard to believe, right? Wait let me give you an explanation: Firstly, they’re both voiced by Robin Williams. Secondly, they both wear blue with a red sash at the waist. They almost have same facial hair- bushy thick eyebrows and a beard that ends in a little curl. But the mind-blowing fact is that: they’re the ONLY characters in the film that have only four fingers. But as one Reddit user says, ” Go deeper, the Genie is the merchant, trying to sell himself.” Amazeballs, right?

Another theory: the Genie says he’s been locked in the lamp for 10,000 years, right? He also tells Aladdin his clothes are “so third century”. Which many smart viewers pointed out stating that the whole thing is actually taking place in the future around 10,300 A.D.

4. Phineas and Ferb

One crazy fan theory states that Candace, the genius duo’s sister, was actually mentally unstable, and imagined the whole thing up. The theory states that, Phineas was actually a ‘nerd’ who got picked on and bullied in school that one day he got punched so hard that it actually killed him. Candace couldn’t deal with his death and built an imaginary world where in her brother and she would go on adventures alongside mute brother, Ferb. This theory also explains that her mother can’t see the things that Phineas and Ferb build because they simply aren’t there. Quite bizarre!

5. Shinchan

Shinchan- the best cartoon series of all time, which some of us still watch now and enjoy and laugh out ass out. According to a theory, Shinchan was inspired by the life of a child called Shinnosukke Nohara, who was trying to save his sister from a speeding car on the road, lost his life. Sadly, his sister did not survive either. Their mother, Masae, went through depression and started sketching her deceased children. The last episode of the series was never actually aired because it was too traumatic and showed the kids die in an accident. Thus, the entire show was an attempt of a mother to keep her deceased children’s memory alive.
