Sometimes, overthinking things can ruin a lot of life’s little pleasures. But it’s always tempting to pick at something and learn the truth, or what we think is the truth anyways. As a child, we didn’t question a lot of things we say in cartoons. We accepted that animals could talk, that people could have superpowers, and that there wasn’t any problem that couldn’t be wrapped up in 30 minutes. As adults, we have taken a closer look at some of our favorite childhood cartoons and noticed some rather unsettling things about them. If you’ve ever watched Disney’s Aladdin, you probably assumed that the movie takes place in the distant past. However, there are a lot of things that seem obvious in retrospect that imply the movie might actually take place in the future. Pokemon is one of the most successful franchises of all time, but some theories about how the Pokemon universe functions are quite alarming. We have a lot of questions about Spongebob, but we might be able to answer one of the most basic ones: how did sea creatures evolve a language, and start a fast food restaurant? You might have laughed about the oblivious nature of Dale Gribble on King of the Hill, whose son Joseph isn’t biologically his. But Dale might not be the only one in the neighborhood who is unwittingly raising someone else’s child.
