Some of the happiest experiences in our childhoods are connected to lovable cartoons, animated shows, and silly characters. And when it comes to Nickelodeon, it was certainly the best of the best.
However, aside from bringing a lot of joy to kids, these cartoons were also used to express some dark moments and messages from their creators which we never understood during childhood.
The Dark Side of Didi Pickles
The voice actor Melanie Chartoff wrote in her book "Slimed! An Oral Of Nickelodeon's Golden Age" that she saw indecent pictures of Didi all over the bathroom in the studio, made by the show's animators.
Bikini Bottom Is Not That Silly after All
What we never realized as kids is that Bikini Bottom is most likely an underwater nuclear testing site, which would explain all the bizarre mutations of its characters.
Most Expensive Pie in the World
"Double Dare" was a fun show, right? After getting a pie thrown in her face, a woman sued the show for no less than $25,000, claiming she was unable to have a relationship because of the embarrassment. She won!
Attack of the Green Slime
The green slime that was dumped on kids in "Double Dare" was called "GAK." Kids loved it, but later, it was discovered that the word was actually a slang term for narcotics.
