There has always been something in the pit of my stomach that tells me that there is some truth to the name “Krabby Patty”, and now this fan theory is explaining it all. What do we know about the most popular food item in Bikini Bottom? A Krabby Patty has always appeared innocent and known to be the burger that is all the rage to almost every fish in the sea. As the series went on, the Krusty Krab has always been packed and busy with hungry customers who are waiting to get a bite of the restaurant’s famous burger made by SpongeBob. A Krabby Patty is so good that it has been Plankton’s main goal to steal the secret recipe, but what is the secret recipe? What is a Krabby Patty made of exactly? Fans on Twitter have been speculating a dark theory for awhile, and it has recently resurfaced.

This theory states that Krabby Patties are actually made out of crab meat, and Mr. Krabs is behind it all. This Twitter user makes an excellent point of what I assume many of us have always wondered.

If Krabby Patties are made from beef like normal burgers, then how did the beef get to the bottom of the ocean? What human is dropping crates of beef in the ocean for a crab and his restaurant? Maybe because Krabby Patties are not made from beef. Maybe this is the exact reason why the secret formula is so protected after almost 20 years. What is Mr. Krabs hiding? This next Twitter user may just have it all figured out.

Mr. Krabs has been the only crab besides his mother shown in almost every episode of SpongeBob Squarepants. So does that mean Mr. Krabs is killing every other crab in Bikini Bottom, cooking them into burgers and selling them at his restaurant? This could be debunked due to the fact that there is one episode where Krabs attends a stingy convention full of other crabs. But if this theory is true, then you may never see those other crabs again.

Don’t be so quick to throw out this theory without seeing this scene from SpongeBob Squarepants, where Mr. Krabs LITERALLY admits that a Krabby Patty is made out of himself… A CRAB.

Also, the Krusty Krab is literally shaped like a crab trap and every food item offered in the series has been named after what they are made of. Kelp fries, kelp shakes, coral bits, etc. I guess we know the secret ingredient in a Krabby Patty after all.

Did Richie Rich Die and Become Casper the Friendly Ghost?

Are you ready to get spooked? You just might have to prepare yourself with this cartoon theory that has crossed many minds for years now. Before we dive into the dark theorizations, I must make an important disclaimer that this article will contain some talk about death and some stuff that may be too macabre for those sensitive to such topics. Also, keep in mind that a theory is a theory. Whether I believe it or not, I am not claiming that any of this has been confirmed by any official source. Please continue reading at you own risk and read my full site disclaimer here.

Also, I want start out by giving those of you out there who don’t know the Richie Rich or Casper the Friendly Ghost characters more information on who the heck we’re talking about here. It’s understandable if you’re younger and aren’t aware of those characters since they are from the old school cartooniverse. I’m talking way back to the 1940s & 50s. Richie Rich is a character from the Harvey Comics who made his first appearance back in 1953 in a comic book issue called Little Dot #1. He was known as “the poor little rich boy”, and became the most popular character of Harvey Comics for more than 30 years. For a kid who is worth over $24 billion in inheritance and could have anything he wanted, you would think Richie would be the most stuck-up kid alive. Well Richie is the total opposite and not turning his nose up at poor people, because while he is the richest kid in the world, he also may be the most charitable. Richie is known for not being afraid to get his hands dirty to help those in need. That is the supposed reason to why he is dubbed “the poor little rich boy”. But what if there is a darker reason among it all?

This is what leads us to Lisa Simpson’s theory. Yes, The Simpsons have been the center of a lot of conspiracies ever since it came out, but this one particular moment in the series just might make a whole lot of sense. In fact, this scene in The Simpsons is what actually started the theory that escalated into a number of other theories. In the scene, Lisa is reading a Richie Rich comic book, while Bart has a Casper the Friendly Ghost comic book. Bart states that he thinks Casper is the ghost of Richie Rich, while Lisa makes the fair point that the two characters do look alike. There is no doubt whatsoever that Richie and Casper have the same exact face.

Bart then says that he wonders how Richie Rich died, and then came the dark theory that Lisa came up with.

“Perhaps he realized how hollow the pursuit of money is, and took his own life.” – Lisa Simpson

I don’t know about you, but I just got the major chills.

casper-and-richie-rich-the-simpsons_o_4449865

Perhaps this could’ve been the case indeed, because many people out there are in fact convinced that Casper is Richie Rich’s ghost and I know I am. At this point I am not asking whether Richie Rich died or not, I’m asking how.

Lisa Simpson’s suicide theory may be a little too macabre to think about, but there are fans out there that have came up with some other dark theories to exactly how Richie Rich died. But first let’s explore Harvey Comics’ supposed explanation to why Casper is a ghost from this archived Wikipedia article:

Given that Casper is depicted as a ghostly, portly little boy, there is a controversy among fans and critics of the series as to whether or not he is a dead child. Early Casper cartoons seemed to suggest this, as they portrayed him residing beside a gravestone. Specifically, the short “There’s Good Boos To-Night” featured Ferdie, a fox befriended by Casper, coming back from the dead as a ghost. Casper’s death (as well as the reason why he became friendly) have been disputed since that time. This somewhat macabre premise was later abandoned in favor of the idea that ghosts were merely a type of supernatural being, similar to ghouls, goblins, etc. He was thereafter portrayed with feet and shown to have ghostly parents and became slightly slimmer. In the 1960s and 1970s, the stock answer provided by Harvey Comics in response to those wondering how Casper died was that he was a ghost simply because his parents were already ghosts when they were married.

Casper even has a last name that is “McFadden” according to the 1995 film. Speaking of that film, it is revealed that Casper is the ghost of a 12-year-old boy who died of pneumonia. Harvey Comics’ less morbid answer to why Casper is a ghost was simply because his parents were ghosts just doesn’t add up. The film’s explanation and the fact that there’s a character called Ferdie the fox who rose from the dead, proves that death does happen in the Harvey Comics universe and the excuse that Casper was just born a ghost is a little off. Of course as a kid I would’ve fell for this, but in my adult form I just cannot accept the excuse that ghosts can produce children like humans can, even in a fictional universe of cartoon characters. I strongly think that Harvey Comics provided this explanation so that kids wouldn’t be creeped out, because I know if I was a kid and found out that Casper is dead, it would freak me out a bit.

This explanation, along with the fact that Richie Rich and Casper have appeared in 45 issues together in a 1974 comic book series, could easily debunk the whole theory. But that doesn’t stop some fans from dancing around the apparent truth and coming up with some theories of their own.


Richie Rich and Casper (1974 series) 12

One Reddit commenter gave their own little take on how they think Richie passed away from his curiosity of being a normal boy and became Casper.

Then you have the most known theory that Richie Rich was murdered by his own parents for the insurance money, which is something that I just don’t consider a reliable theory. Friendly reminder that Richie is known as the richest kid in the world, so you know his parents were rolling in dough as well. Why would they murder their own child for wealth that they already had?

Out of all of the cartoon theories I’ve read, this one is both the most believed and the most believable. Richie Rich and Casper the Friendly Ghost are two characters from the same comic book universe who look strikingly similar. Casper just may be the ghost of Richie Rich, and the fact that Casper was dubbed “the Friendly Ghost” just fuels the theory even more. Like stated above, Richie Rich was known for being humble and friendly despite being super rich. I find it extremely hard to believe that anything about this theory is too far-fetched. What do you think?

Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Post Apocalypse Theory

A little disclaimer: a theory is a theory, defined as an idea that is suggested or presented as possibly true but that is not known or proven to be true. Nothing is being confirmed and should be interpreted as a confirmation. This is just my summary of the fan theory I discovered along with my thoughts on it. (Here’s the source of this theory)

avatarsource: Nickelodeon

We all know Avatar: The Last Airbender for being more than just a Nicktoon. It was one of the greatest and most powerful cartoons on television, let alone Nickelodeon. The idea of a world divided into four nations of “benders” who can control the natural elements – fire, earth, water and air, is just plain awesome. Watching Avatar was an experience, from the episode plots to the characters. Everything was just so well put together and I always told myself if I ever met the creators or writers of this series I would brag on their show till I’m blue in the face. I mean, you rarely (I said rarely that means it’s not impossible) find cartoons with such a creative background nowadays. Sometimes I wonder when we will see another cartoon that is as breathtaking as Avatar. Or even IF we will ever see another, but I like to have hope for the future of animated television.

A cartoon like Avatar just has to come with interesting fan theories, and this fan theory may be the most fascinating one yet. I’m talking staying up until 3 am and analyzing it over and over fascinating. That’s what I realized when I stumbled across this mind blowing article, that I might just have to side with. You can always count on me to analyze the most compelling fan theories out there. It’s pretty much a requirement from me at this point. Well, the theory is that the Avatar series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Now before you shut your laptop or throw your phone across the room, this might not be entirely far-fetched. This theory may sound unbelievable and even debatable, because even myself can’t help but feel like this series takes place thousands or even millions of years ago. But let’s look more into it:

This theory states that somewhere between Avatar Wan and Aang, there was an apocalyptic event that unfortunately led to mankind starting over. For that reason, Avatar must take place in the future. This person provides their evidence by mainly pointing out a “major problem” in the timeline on the show.

 “In the episode Beginnings, Part 1 and Part 2, it shows the time of the character Avatar Wan and how he became the first Avatar, when Korra lost her memory. One of the scenes shown was a Chinese palace of the Chou estate, where Wan stole food from the Chou brothers. …there is a major problem here. If you think about the development time it took between A:TLA and TLOK, it only takes 70 years to build Republic City, which is supposed to resemble an advanced city, from the plans and cars in it, as well as compared to the rest of the world…But when they show Avatar Wan’s time, it is remarkably similar to Avatar Aang’s time.”

The theory also adds how animals in the show like Sky Bisons and Chimeras may be supposedly altered due to radioactivity, how characters like Combustion Man and Guru Pathik may exist due to “special intervention” or mutation, and more. All of the information is pretty mind blowing and the author of the theory explains it very well in my opinion, but what really has me going is the Benders explanation.

Avatar-the-last-airbender-hogwarts-770x395

This supposed evidence of why benders have their powers could be easily disregarded, but not so fast. This person makes a rather good point when questioning the show’s excuses to how the humans developed their bending powers. In The Legend of Korra, it was revealed that the lion turtles gave powers to Avatar Wan and his kind during his time. Keep in mind, bending is not a power that can be passed down through teaching. As the lion turtles stopped giving powers away, the bending died down. So the apocalyptic event could have mutated the humans, giving them bending powers as time went on. Also the side-abilities performed, such as Metalbending, were not the works of the lion turtles, meaning only one thing. Mutated powers caused by radiation, which was caused by the apocalypse my friend.

This theory was a lot to take in and I hope I summarized it well for those of you Avatar TLAB fans out there. I really recommend you read the original article linked above in the disclaimer though. It may have you on a warpath, questioning everything you’ve ever known about the series. Or you may just find it as another interesting and enjoyable fan theory. It really depends on what level of fan you are. Once again, no one is confirming this theory to be true so no need to get frustrated or bothered by it.

This Rick and Morty Fan Theory Just Might Be on to Something

rick and mortysource: Adult Swim

Rick and Morty is the sci-fi cartoon that has taken the world by storm. It’s become the most-watched series in the history of Adult Swim and has led to a total pop culture domination. It’s memorable episodes has inspired many fan-crazed memes, outcries, and most of all theories. The are an amazing amount of theories about Rick and Morty out there, and some of them are not totally far-fetched. I mean, anything could be possible with a show surrounds the unordinary life of 14-year-old Morty Smith who goes on extreme adventures to other dimensions with his alcoholic, mad scientist grandfather Rick Sanchez, who has proved himself to be pretty much the smartest man alive. But what if Morty is just as smart as Rick or has the potential to be? That is just what this fan theory states:

Crazy it may sound to some, it’s really not when you add up all of the evidence that we already have. Morty just might not be the awkward, shaky-voiced, character that many know him to be. Rick sees something in Morty and maybe we haven’t been really paying close attention to it. Notice how Rick is always discouraging Morty from going to school, stating how it’s “not a place for smart people”. That quote may sound absurd to most, but think of it as a sign. Rick possibly sees something in Morty that he considers is way beyond an average high school education. When Morty wants to do normal teenage things like asking his crush out or when the subject is on procreation and romance, here comes grandpa Rick, insisting that Morty “break the cycle and focus on science.” Why would Rick be pushing Morty this hard and taking him on his insane adventures if he didn’t think his grandson has the potential to become as genius as he is one day? Not to mention, these adventures are often life-threatening. I don’t think Rick would bother taking Morty along if he thought he couldn’t handle it. If you aren’t convinced by now, what if I said there’s also evidence that ties in with Evil Morty?

evil morty

Evil Morty. He’s a fan favorite that has been the center of many fan theories, and now this one. Friendly reminder that Evil Morty challenged the Council of Ricks and won in a campaign. This could be a hint that a Morty is more capable than you think, including our Morty. Meanwhile in the same episode, Rick states how “a cocky Morty can be a real bad thing for everyone.” When Morty asks “How is that?”, Rick replies with “Uh, I’ll explain when you’re older.” and then just like that. The episode cuts to the scene where Evil Morty is revealed as the mastermind behind the episode’s plot. I don’t think a coincidence is logical at this point. Rick is aware of Morty’s dangerous intelligence, and Evil Morty just might be a symbol of this. It’s only a matter of time before it’s revealed.

A huge thanks to Alex Ducey for this fascinating theory. You can find his original fan theory herehttps://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/6wc4yn/rick_and_morty_morty_is_as_smart_as_rick/ I highly suggest you read his full theory. It highlights so much that you probably haven’t thought about before.

‘The Loud House’ Mystery: Why Does Lincoln Really Have White Hair?

the-loud-house-lincolnNickelodeon

It all started with an adoption theory, that was later debunked, but we are yet to solve the ultimate mystery of The Loud House. In the episode “Not a Loud”, Lincoln came across his baby book but soon discovers that his birth story page was blank. He goes to his parents and they both give him obviously false stories. Lincoln and Clyde decide to take matters into their own hands. After some investigation, Lincoln found another family with white hair and similar features as him, and he comes to the conclusion that his parents switched babies with them because they wanted a boy. Lincoln confronts his folks yet again and they find the claims humorous. What’s really quite funny is that they decided to tell Lincoln his “real” birth story after he went through all of the trouble.

So apparently, when Rita’s water broke and her and Lynn Sr. were on their way to the hospital, their van broke down but… brace yourselves. They just happened to be on the same road as the president and the first lady, and get this! They decided to give Rita and Lynn Sr. a lift, but unable to make it to the hospital before Rita gave birth, the first lady delivered Lincoln herself. What a believable story, and it’s even more interesting to know that Rita told Lincoln that he cannot tell anyone due to a “confidential agreement”. Oh come on, if the first lady of the United States actually delivered a baby, I’m sure the White House would want a story like that to be public for good publicity.

lincoln-loud

So Lincoln’s birth story sounded like total… don’t even make me say it. It just sounded unlikely alright, but I guess the Lincoln adoption theory was debunked so whatever. Wait, but where was the explanation for Lincoln’s white hair? Hmm… now we’re getting somewhere.

Now in the concluding scene of the episode “Not a Loud”, Lincoln and Clyde notice that the character “Ron the Radioactive Boy” has white hair, so they assume Lincoln’s white hair comes from radioactivity. It’s kind of stretch if you ask me, but I like to encourage thinking outside of the box. The official explanation to why Lincoln’s hair is white that the show’s team seems to be trying to settle with is that he got it from his maternal grandfather or “Pop-pop” Albert. In the episode “Cover Girls”, while Lincoln talks to his grandfather Albert through a video chat, Albert calls Lincoln his “lookalike” and states that Lincoln has “still got snow on the roof”, directly referring to his hair. This is extremely bizarre, on account of Pop-pop being an elderly man who is expected to have white hair as he ages. Why would Lincoln, who is 11-years-old, have white hair?

It’s also worth mentioning that Lincoln’s sisters all have mixed hair colors of blonde and brunette, with the exception of Lucy, who’s natural hair was proven to be black in the episode “Spell It Out”. I’m sorry, WHAT? This mystery just gets deeper and deeper. I would love to try and figure out a possible reason to why Lucy’s hair color is different from her sisters as well, but that’s another post for another time.
