Since the darkest days of the internet when people used to communicate via text-only applications, fans have been throwing theories around about the very nature of that which we all hold dear: Saturday morning cartoon shows and animated movies. Just as it was in the past, the cartoons of today have been picked apart and theorized about by fans who concluded not everything was as it appeared onscreen. The majority of fan theories can be pushed aside, but every once in a while, an argument hits the internet that makes you think, "Could this be right?"

More often than not, those theories posit the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Humanity has wiped itself out and left it to the characters of Pokemon, The Flintstones, SpongeBob SquarePants, or Aladdin. Whatever you believe about these amazing animated series and films, the theories about them existing in a post-apocalyptic Earth are compelling.
