10. Spongebob Squarepants is a tampon.
SpongeBob is one of the longest running cartoon and there are also lots of theories about it. Some alleged that the show represents the 7 deadly sins while some believes that it’s about nuclear testing and the cast are actually mutants. But recently, the fans of SpongeBob Squarepants suspect that he is actually a tampon.
If you will listen closely to the lyrics of the cartoon’s opening song, it’s says “Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants. Absorbent and yellow and porous is he! SpongeBob Squarepants. Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish. SpongeBob Squarepants.”
Does it make sense now? If not, then he lives in Bikini Bottom.
9. Phineas is dead.
Do you wonder why Phineas and Ferb are never caught?
It is alleged that Phineas is already dead in the story and Candace can’t accept the death of her brother. Candace has schizophrenia and hallucinates that Phineas is still alive and plays with them. Ferb also seems to display depression and hallucination as he pretends to play and invent machines with Phineas. Which is the reason why every time Candice tries to show their mom the machines that Phineas and Ferb build in their backyard, their mother can’t see it. The machines and Phineas don’t exist in the first place.
There are also rumors circulating that say the characters of Phineas and Ferb, as well as Candace existed in real life. Theories say the cartoons are about what Candice wrote in her diary before she committed suicide. It is said that it’s a story of a Russian girl with Schizophrenia, but it is not confirmed, of course.
8. Wall-E destroyed Earth.
The beloved robot Wall-E narrates the tragic story of earth, but is he really innocent or he could be the culprit?
In the start of the movie we see that Wall-E used some parts of the broken robots to fix his body. Cannibalism isn’t it? It is suspected that the earth recovering is going smooth until one Wall-E went wrong. This unit wasn’t good at doing its job and loves to keep objects as treasures. It began destroying all the other units through cannibalism until there were no longer enough robots left to do the job.
Cannibalism is what made the rogue Wall-E continue operating and existing beyond its original life span. That pretty much explains why it is the only unit left functioning, surviving after 700 years.
7. Winnie the Pooh is about mental disorders.
The Canadian Medical Association Journal explained the pathologies behind the classic and loved classic cartoon. It’s a story of a boy who meets a bear and other animals and they all go through adventures filled with life lessons. But it seems they are really not as happy as we’d think. Researchers said that the cast of Winnie the Pooh displayed different mental issues.
Pooh has (ADHD) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and (OCD) Obsessive Compulsive Disorder because he is too neurotic for honey and counts repetitively. They also said that Pooh needs intervention.
Piglet has (GAD) Generalized Anxiety Disorder, that is why he worries and fears even the smallest things. This can be because of traumatic experiences in the past.
Eeyore is diagnosed with depression. The experts said that combined antidepressant and individual therapy will greatly help.
Tigger has (ADHD) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and (OCD) Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He is gregarious and affectionate, but he has a recurrent pattern of risk-taking behavior.
On the other hand, some fans of the show also suspect that Christopher Robin might have Schizophrenia and he is imagining everything. Though the researchers of Canadian Medical Association said that he has not yet exhibited any diagnosable conditions.
6. Toy Story 3 is about the Holocaust.
Toy story is a heartfelt movie about a boy and its toys. But when Andy needed to go to the city for college he also needed to leave his toys behind.
Some fans suspect that Toy Story 3 is a holocaust allegory. When the toys are left behind, it is just like when the host nations left behind the Jews as the Third Reich conquered Europe. Woody the Cowboy holds a meeting to discuss the possible things that may happen to them. Some fans say that if you will change some few words in what he said, it is exactly what it means in the scene of the train station from Roman Polanski’s award winning Holocaust drama The Pianist. “No, we won’t be abandoned. Surely we can be useful to them somehow. Yes, we’ve lost friends, but surely that can’t happen to us.”
The scene where a car comes to the toys that dumped them to Sunnyside where they are put to work is the concentration camp. They also meet the toy version of the Sonderkommando, the toys that live in a comfortable life while letting other toys to be abused. The new toys are put in the “Caterpillar Room,” a room where they are abused and destroyed by toddlers until they resemble Muselmann and are thrown in the trash tube. Of course, at the end, the protagonists get saved at the end and find a habitable new homeland.
