While there was a vast array of weird and wonderful characters and settings in '80s cartoons, the premises were so much simpler back then and therefore so much easier to enjoy (seriously, what the hell is actually going on in things like Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon?). Cartoons were also so much more innocent back then.

This article is going to take a look at just some of the theories of the fans who grew up watching the cartoons of the '80s and came to realise that perhaps things weren't quite what they seemed in their favourite shows.

On that note, here are ten fan theories that put interesting spins on your favourite '80s cartoons (apologies in advance if any of these end up ruining said cartoons for you).
