As children, watching Nicktoons was all about taking in the laughs and following our favorite characters. In many cases, plots went right over our heads and we missed numerous mistakes seen on-screen. Take a look back at shows like Rugrats, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Hey Arnold to see some of the crazy mistakes you probably missed!
On Rugrats, we all know Chucky’s mom passed away when he was a baby, but we didn’t get all the full details until the Mother’s Day episode. Obviously plans changed over the years, because there have been multiple mentions of a living mother early on! SpongeBob Squarepants is a unique character, but what exactly is his body made of?! Multiple episodes have showcased very different conclusions. Helga is obsessed with Arnold in Hey Arnold, but is she so in love that her body split in two?! A classic animation mistake would make you think so. Timmy Turner has very specific rules when it comes to having Fairy Godparents, but he breaks one in an effort to help his father in the past. In All Grown Up, Tommy Pickles ends up sleepwalking and stealing items, but the thing he blames it on is completely different than what the evidence presents itself as. How old is SpongeBob?! He acts 8 but takes driving lessons and lives on his own!? Different episodes showcase VERY different ages. Timmy Turner has some rough aspects of his life, but he does have his own private bathroom! How could he be so lucky?! The first episode of Doug showcases the character’s move to his town, but later on he has flashbacks about spending multiple summers there. Planet Sheen sent Sheen to outer space, but there’s no reason Jimmy Neutron and his pals wouldn’t go and rescue him right away. Watch to see all these mistakes and MANY more!
