If you were born between 1985 and 1994, there's a 99% chance that you were a fan of Nickelodeon's Rugrats. For the uninitiated, here's the premise in a nutshell: Several irresponsible parents continually leave their mischievous and intelligent infants unsupervised; hijinks ensue. It's a cute show with colorful animation and some pretty lit one-liners, making it effortlessly popular with kids and kids at heart.
Except there's this theory going around that all the babies are dead and the show is actually some kind of post-traumatic fever dream of Angelica's.
Angelica, should you need reminding, is three and thus the oldest of the children (except, of course, Susie Carmichael). Some evil geniuses on CreepyPasta think that the adult characters in the show have bizarre personality quirks that can only be explained as follows:
Tommy, Angelica's cousin and precocious leader of the babies, was actually stillborn. His father Stu spends his time making toys in the basement for the son he was meant to have.
Chuckie, notorious 'fraidy cat and Tommy's best friend, died when his mother did, leaving his father Chaz a permanent nervous wreck.
Phil and Lil DeVille, the fraternal twins, were supposed to be one baby, but their parents terminated the pregnancy. Angelica never knew the sex of the baby, so she created one of each.
If that's not disturbing enough for you, the CreepyPasta article actually manages to extend this theory to the birth of Dil Pickles, Tommy's younger brother, all the way through the "All Growed Up" spin-off series. But for those of us who were raised on the original Nicktoon, this is plenty creepy.
