10 Cartoon Fan Theories That Will Ruin Your Childhood

Scooby Doo Economic Depression

This fan theory attempts to provide an explanation for why there appears to be so many abandoned buildings and facilities in the world of Scooby Doo. It also attempts to explain just why people who should be affluent and wealthy, such as doctors, lawyers and businessmen, are interested in the wacky schemes. This is all because the world is in a giant economic depression with companies going out of business and successful individuals have lost their jobs.

Inspector Gadget Is Dr. Claw

Everyone knows that inspector Gadget is a good guy who makes use of a variety of technological devices and equipment to battle his enemies. His arch-nemesis is Dr. Claw, though some believe that he is actually the real Inspector Gadget, the man who the robotic hero was copied from. Proponents argue that it makes sense as the face of Dr. Claw is never shown and he seems to have suffered from a terrible accident, something that Inspector Gadget will have had to in order to end up as a robotic duplicate.
