In the world there are many mysteries, and the cartoons that we all remember are not exempt from them. Surely, more than once you have had unknowns about any of them, such as what is there at ground level in The Jetsons? Or why does Garfield hate Mondays? Some of the most frequently asked questions have been answered by the creators of the series or by people who participated in its production, while others were left only in theories that have been half confirmed, but many of them still remain unsolved.
Bright Side shares this list of solved and unsolved cartoon mysteries that have spawned theories or rumors and turned into discussions, sometimes very serious, on the internet.
1. Why do the Flintstones celebrate Christmas?
The Flintstones is one of the cartoons that many generations have seen and that, curiously, does not seem to age. The history of the Flintstones family and the Marbles takes place in the Stone Age, which began approximately 2,800,000 years ago and lasted until about 3,000 BC. In the West, Christmas began to be celebrated only in the middle of the fourth century, and these festivals were held for the first time in Constantinople in 379. So, how or why did they celebrate Christmas in Piedradura?
2. Where do the clothes of the knights of the zodiac go when they put on armor?
In the transformations of The Knights of the Zodiac, before putting on the armor, they always wear normal clothes, but suddenly they appear in a stretchy suit. So where do their clothes go? Why do their casual clothes sometimes reappear when they take off their armor, but sometimes they don’t?
3. What is the secret recipe for Krabby Burgers?
At the Krabby Crustacean, the most popular restaurant in “Bikini Bottom”, the most famous dish of all is served: the Cangreburguer. However, the recipe is completely a mystery. In fact, Mr. Cangrejo, founder and owner of the Krabby Crustacean, jealously guards the secret, which, on repeated occasions, his staunch rival Plankton has tried to steal. However, some speculation has arisen among fans, such as that the secret ingredient is crab meat, which has scandalized many. But the creator of the series, Stephen Hillenburg, stated that there is absolutely no meat on the plate. So, although the mystery is not completely solved, at least we can rest assured that it is a meal in which there has been no suffering of marine life.
4. Why can Goofy talk and Pluto can’t?
One of the most asked questions about Mickey and his friends is the fact that Goofy wears clothes and can talk and Pluto cannot. Even at first it was believed that the reason was that Goofy was not really a dog, but a cow. The rumor spread so much on the internet that it reached the ears of Disney, who through the official Twitter account of the amusement park denied this theory, confirming that Goofy is also a dog. However, there has been no clear explanation for this unknown.
5. How is it possible to make a fire under the sea in SpongeBob SquarePants?
