Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius nears its two-decade anniversary and still has fans gushing over the child prodigy and his madcap gang of little geniuses. What we look up to the characters for is their impressive knowledge about science and their courage to face the biggest predicament without blinking an eye. The rather inspiring show aimed at kids however has a sinister back story according to a Reddit user.
Reddit user OrganicKermistry shared a fascinating hypothesis about the Nickelodeon characters that will cause you to rethink your childhood. The theory states that Jimmy, Carl, Sheen, Cindy, and Libby are genetically engineered to harbor a certain superhuman ability and then placed in a fake family for further propagation. The people in the neighborhood are no one but actors hired by the government. This makes sense when not a single soul in that neighborhood is surprised to see a child flying a rocket to school.
The Reddit user further elaborates to clear any doubts around his claims. He calls the city a “testing ground” for government projects. We all witness Jimmy’s self-invented gadgets in one part of the film. Be it the self-folding pants or other gizmos that are insane and unrealistic to a whole new level. This is because the government is taking away all his inventions once they are ready for further research. “Retroville and all the children’s adventures are secretly staged development grounds for Jimmy’s inventions,” the Reddit user says.
In one part of the film, Jimmy and his friends make a trip to Europe and wake up as mummies. What actually triggers this incident in the first place? It’s the movie that was shown to them in the class by their teacher. We could think of it as a stimulus to study the response of these gifted kids and what they make of the knowledge imparted to them.
A notable highlight of the film is the military base, Area 86. It is the ultimate proof that Jimmy and his gang resides in testing ground. The entire film and even the TV show has the kids testing some of the other gadgets now and then. The government aims to obtain these powers for governing purposes. Their lives are fascinating but it’s all a big lie.
Jimmy and his pals end up in boisterous situations each day. But not a single person from the town questions their escapades. What do we make of this? It sounds like a huge antic they pulled off there.
The creator of the show, John Davis however has discredited these claims outright. When he was asked about his thoughts on this theory, this is what he had to say – “Thanks for sharing the truth… er, I mean the amusing fictitious ARTICLE!”. Jimmy and the gang genetically engineered? Interesting theory…. You DO know the company that made Jimmy is called DNA Productions, right ; )”?
We see what you did there John!
Anyway, we would love to hear your thoughts on this theory! Stay tuned to Spotflik for more such theories.
Rich Moore’s Wreck-it Ralph was a remarkable film build on the themes of friendship, love, and self-sacrifice. It was a clever film that revolved around Ralph who wants to give up on his life as the villain and assume the new life of a video game hero. When he accidentally aids in the escape of a deadly enemy he bets his life on protecting the arcade from reaching a disastrous end.
At its heart, the film is the heroic journey of Ralph on a quest to protect the people he cares about. But what most people fail to notice among all the commotion is a significantly dark twist at the end of the film.
The commanding officer of Hero’s duty voiced by Jane Lynch has a tragic story that many are not aware of. Seargent Tamora Jean Calhoun is said to have murdered her own husband at the altar according to a popular conspiracy theory. This puts an interesting canon on her character of a video game action hero character.
According to the theory, a giant Cy-bug enters the venue of Calhoun’s wedding. The Cy-bug goes on a killing rampage and in the process consumes her groom. She succeeds in killing the Cy-bug but her husband is already being indoctrinated.
She saw her husband being taken over in front of her very eyes and couldn’t help but turn into a cold merciless being. This tragedy makes her who she is as a person. In the film, however, this arc is played ostensibly for fun and laughs.
Although the story was not explicitly showcased to see how the events went down that day. The thing is Cy-Bugs tend to assume the shape of anything they consume.
This is evident from most Cy-bug encounters that go down in the film. When a Cy-bug eats a gun, it tends to gain the properties of the gun.
Similarly in one scene, when a Cy-bug eats a candy, it turns to candy.
The transformational abilities apply when Cy-bugs consume humans too. So naturally, after eating Ralph, the Cy-bug tends to gain his shape.
What we witness on Calhoun’s face is not the expression of grief or sadness. It is the uncontrollable urge to cause the destruction of evil. In this case, she badly wants to destroy the monster who has taken the form of the most important person in her life. The Cy-bug gave Ralph a painful death and what Calhoun’s looking for is only revenge.
It’s not long before the Cy-bug transformation occurs. So when Calhoun shoots the Cy-bug it has already turned into her husband. It is her husband’s face she sees as she puts a bullet in him.
And that’s how the theory of her as a killer of her husband came into being.
Do you think this holds up as enough evidence for Calhoun’s “chip on the shoulder” nature? Do let us know in the comments. And stay tuned to Spotflik for more such amazing theories.
‘He who must not be named’ in J.K. Rowling’s fantasy world comes as a mirror image of a man in the real-world who killed thousands of people while he reigned over Germany. J.K. Rowling herself admitted that her supervillain from the Harry Potter Series has numerous parallels with Hitler, the king of Nazis.
The first clue being, both of them had a difficult childhood owing to people’s inability to comprehend their views. Adolf Hitler had a difficult time fostering familial bonds. Similarly, Tom Riddle shared minimal connection with his parents on an emotional level. This is the reason he ends up in an orphanage.
Their educational experience is however poles apart but ends up in them becoming more inclined towards the evil in the world.
Hitler failed twice during his mandatory education and missed a chance to be admitted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. We wonder how different the history of the world would turn out had he made it to the institute. It is however quite surprising to have someone of Hitler’s stature to have such a poor academic record.
Voldemort however was the exact opposite and aced his magical tests to become a part of elite wizard clubs and his abilities only grew stronger with time. It is tragic for someone like him to have ended up becoming the bad guy who only brings the wizarding world so much pain and suffering.
Furthermore, both men became powerful by walking the path of betrayal. Hitler came to power staging the Reichstag fire and Voldemort by seizing control of the ministry of magic.
Both men exploited the fears of minorities and pit them against a major section of the population. Hitler convinced the Aryan race that they are threatened by the Jews. While Voldemort tricked Pure Bloods in the wizarding world to believe that muggle-borns were the enemies and needed to be eliminated. Both men gained immense power by creating a divide among the people. They weaponized the fear and anxiety of the minorities and used it to create chaos.
They both selectively chose one community to represent the enemy. Voldemort called them “Muggles’ while Hitler chose “Jews”. They then used the differences to spread the far infection and complete destruction to propagate the idea that only one race is superior thus causing the deaths of thousands of people.
Racism is quite evident in both their strategies. The ulterior motive also remained the same. Both men had a spite against impure races when in fact both of them belonged to the same race they spread hatred against.
Hitler wanted to create a world with only Aryans who were tall, blonde, and had blue eyes. When according to some studies it was found that he had Jewish lineage. He himself was nothing like an Aryan. He was short and had brown eyes.
Voldemort made it his ultimate aim to eliminate any person with muggle connections. A muggle-born wizard, or a muggle friend or any person who had any kind of muggle origin was tagged unfit according to his rules. He considered muggles as an impurity in the Wizarding world and wanted to cleanse it off the impurities. It’s like he had some serious personality disorder.
Both Hitler and Voldemort had an inner circle of trusted allies. For Hitler, it was the Schutzstaffel(SS) And Voldemort had the Death Eaters at his disposal.
The identification procedures followed by these groups of people are rather similar- A mark on the skin. The marks used were both symbols of peace and positivity. Hitler used Swastika as his symbol which represents peace in Sanskrit. Voldemort’s Death Hallow is considered a symbol of good omen in the magic world.
Both men shared an obsession with priced antiques. While Voldemort chased Horcruxes all his life, Hitler had a huge collection of precious pieces.
Voldemort’s biggest desire was to claim the Elder Wand which was considered the most powerful wand in the magic world. Also known as the Wand of Destiny, it is something Voldemort badly wanted.
Hitler had a Lance of Destiny in his priced collection of objects. Also known as the Holy Lance, this was the Lance used to pierce Jesus Christ to the cross. The one who possessed the Lance was believed to be blessed with its esoteric powers and gained the ability to win most battles in life.
The evidence is overwhelming and we can’t help but feel thankful that both these characters did not exist in the same world at the same time. Imagine Voldemort having his hand on an atomic bomb and Hitler possessing the power of magic. What chaos would the world witness then?
This could probably be the craziest theory you have ever heard of. It claims that Jack from Titanic is sent back in time by John Connor to protect his life.
It is being hypothesized that John Connor sends a soldier to the year 1991 to save his younger version. Terminator films treat the timeline as the only one in existence. Any changes in the timeline cause major changes in the future. It was thus important that John Connor protected himself and his mother so they could form the resistance.
This makes Titanic the first film of the Terminator franchise.
According to the theory, John Connor belongs to Rose’s bloodline. Rose was originally meant to die in Titanic. Arnold was not the only soldier who was sent back in time. Along with him, a second resistance soldier was dispatched to save Rose. Now Rose was not in any danger of being attacked by a Terminator. However, her fate was to drown in the film.
Here’s the evidence:
As another theory suggests that Jack was actually a time traveler, has a lot to do with this hypothesis as well. When Jack was sent into the past in 1912, he somehow ended up traveling slowly through the time and then abruptly ended up in 1912. This explains his haircut which was clearly from the 90s. Young John Connor had a similar hairdo. Furthermore, he smokes cigars that were a product first invented in the 1940s. How did he manage to get his hands on those? Also in one of his conversations with Rose, he mentions a roller coaster in Santa Monica pier. Surprisingly, the roller coaster was not built until 4 years after the Titanic disaster. The same goes for his claims about ice fishing in Lake Wissota. The Lake was created 5 years after Titanic sank. That means he experienced all these events close to 1912 and then rapidly ended up in the year where he was supposed to save Rose.
In the end, however, he could not stay with her. As part of the plan, he sinks in the water and removes himself from that time period as he did not belong there. This draws a direct parallel to Arnold’s self-termination at the end of Terminator 2.
Terminator 2 released in 1991 and Titanic released in 1997. The film was made on such a grand scale and yet left these loopholes for the audience to ponder over. The above analysis only suggests that these were deliberate cues that James Cameron sprinkled all over the film.
Do you think these are just coincidences? But we can’t help but feel excited about Titanic and Terminator being the beads on the same string.
The Burton theory is a popular belief amongst fans that all of Tim Burton’s moves are connected. It still holds a lot of unrevealed secrets that can help us connect the dots.
According to the theory, all of Tim Burton’s films including Frankenweenie, Vincent, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas and, Corpse Bride are connected.
Tim Burton’s film “Vincent” is the first one on the list.
Until he turned into a maniac, Vincent Malloy was a simple boy. His attempts in transforming his dog Abercrom bie into a Zombie led the dog to be given away.
And the man who adopts Abercrom bie is Victor and renames the dog Sparky.
Vincent’s wife Sally
Sally is not real. But Vincent claims to have murdered her by burying her alive. And later he tries to resurrect her by rebuilding her. Sally now resides in Halloween town after her death.
Post the occurrences of Frankweenie, Sparky is dead. He is buried in the pet cemetery and eventually becomes a spirit of Halloween Town. This is how he is adopted by Jack Skellington who renames him “Zero”.
This explains the glow on Zero’s nose in the afterlife.
And easter egg can be noted when Zero’s gravestone is visible while victor is making a visit to Sparky’s grave.
This points to an obvious fact that Abercrombie, Sparky, and Zero are the same. They also bear a similar facial structure.
Edgar E’ Gore
Edgar is Victor’s lab partner. A failed lab experiment kills Edgar and he goes on to meet Dr. Frankelstein in the afterlife. The doctor makes the boy his own assistant and they both then create a Reindeer.
Were-rat and Wolfman
This character’s death is attributed to Sparky’s electrical shock. Once e he dies, he becomes a part of Halloween town later to be known as Wolfman.
The Seamonkey kid dies and resides in Christmas Town and is later being pursued by the Jack’o lanter-in-a-Box.
This is when Sparky is dead for the second and last time.
Victor’s parents get him a new dog to help him forget about Sparky. The new dog is called Scraps. But eventually, Scraps too is dead. The death of his second dog pushes victor over the edge and he runs away. This is how he ends up with the Van Dorts.
After the adoption, the family forces Victor to get married to Victoria Everglot. This alliance is a part of Victoria’s parents’ plan to escape poverty.
Now if we look closely, Victor from Frankweenie and Victor from Corpse Bride bears an uncanny resemblance to one another.
While some people think it is just how Tim Burton likes his figures. But the theory suggests they are the same person.
Elsa Van Helsing
Victor’s neighbor and his childhood crush goes in depression after she loses him. It’s as though she becomes dead inside. Not knowing how to handle the situation, her parents decide to put her into a foster home. In an attempt to begin a new life, Elsa changes her name to Lydia. Her new parents Delia and Charles Deetz, find a new home in Barbara and Adam Maitland’s old abode. This is how Beetlejuice begins.
Burgemeister has another brother who is neglected by the parents. Burgemeister ends up inheriting all his parent’s fortune while his brother Finis is left to deal with poverty.
This is what leads us to the happenings of Corpse Bride when Scraps makes a comeback.
Weird girl tries hard to convince her parents about their cat’s death. She fails repeatedly and her parents put her up for adoption. Jim and Peg eventually take her in.
The girl Kim in Edward Scissorhands is the same Weird girl. She is not scared of Edward since she is just as weird herself. She has no pictures of her young self whatsoever proving she is the same as Weird girl.
Marvel has a reputation for laying the groundwork for major plot reveals well ahead in time. We witnessed the weird alien race called Skrulls in Captain Marvel. And the Marvel fans can’t help but wonder if they have seen these creatures apart from this film.
The shape-shifting creatures may have sparked a theory that questions the truth about a significant Marvel hero. Thor may not be who you think is after all. This has been an exciting reveal yet has some fans worried over the claims.
Marvel has used this strategy of dropping hints in many movies. Be it showing Wakanda on Nick Fury’s map in Iron Man 2 or the name-checking of Steven Strange in Winter Soldier. This creates a whole new kind of excitement amongst fans and Marvel is all game for it.
The theory suspects that the Skrulls have some odd connection with the characters we already know. Secret Invasion Storyline is a very important narrative in the MCU. In this story, the homeland of Skrulls is sabotaged by Galactus, and the survivors find their way onto the Earth and infiltrate the superhero community. They do this as a part of their scheme to eliminate the heroes permanently. This culminates in an epic battle where all superheroes have intruders among them. In the end, Norman Osborn is known to have saved the planet.
The Secret Invasion Storyline was rather intriguing in a notable way. That was until the Skrull infiltrators were activated by their masters, they thought of themselves as true Avengers. Meanwhile, the real heroes are kept in a temporary cessation of vital body functions to keep them dormant. They do not possess any memory of their kidnapping whatsoever.
So it is highly likely, the original lord of thunder was abducted and replaced by a Skrull.
According to Reddit user J-Patrick, Thor Ragnarok gives some kind of hint that the Odinson has been abducted by the Skrulls and replaced with one of their own. There are multiple instances in the film when Thor seems to have drifted away from his reality with some vague memories.
The theory suggests that he was taken captive before one of these incidents. After several months of his powers and memories being transferred into the body of a Skrull, he was frozen and the imposter Thor assumed his place.
Since Skrulls are natural shapeshifters they can also replicate a memory or a superpower just as easily. So it becomes almost impossible to tell them from the real superheroes. Thor lacks his Mjolnir in Ragnarok and Infinity War. Besides he starts exhibiting some new powers in addition. This seems suspiciously Skrull like. So is this nerve-wracking theory really true? Only time will tell.
