Fan theories that perfectly explain your favorite shows and movies.

Most of us use TV shows and movies as a way to kick back and relax. Be it action sequences, horrifying ghosts or simple romantic flicks, we seldom pause to think if there’s something larger at work.

These fans, however, delved a little deeper and found perfectly logical stories behind what goes on the screen.  

So grab a can of soda and relax while we bring to you some of the most “Why-didn’t-I think-of-that” theories behind popular TV.

  1. Courage the Cowardly Dog

Courage the Cowardly Dog

Although it tried hard to be funny, but the truth is Courage the Cowardly Dog is more frightening than any horror movie today.

Remember how Courage was always freaking out seeing monsters while his owners Muriel and Eustace lounged casually? A popular theory suggests that Courage is a small dog that lives with an old couple and because of his minimum exposure and owners too old to take him out for a walk, Courage thinks everything out his house is “nowhere.” The monsters? Well, they’re just a little protective dog’s perception of outsiders.

  1. Batman


This hoarse-voiced superhero rules the hearts of millions. Here’s an interesting theory though: What if Bruce never got past his parents’ murder and his fall down the manor well? A fan created the theory that Batman and all his rivals are actually different faces of Bruce’s personality as he *wait for it* spends his time in a mental asylum.

Here’s the final kick: Harley Quinn and Joker are the doctors treating Bruce and hence he resists the hardest against them.

  1. Harry Potter

Stephen King tweeted: 

Harry Potter

Let’s see, to make a horcrux, she would have to kill seven important characters – and she did! Seems a little too farfetched? Let’s recall: Dumbledore, Snape, Fred, Lupin, Sirius, Hedwig and Dobby. Mind=Blown!

  1. Disney Universe

Disney Universe

At the beginning of Frozen, we see Elsa’s parents go to Rapunzel’s return celebration but unfortunately their ship sank. If you pay attention near the beginning of Frozen, you can see Rapunzel and Flynn at Elsa’s coronation to give their respect. A Tumblr post suggests that if The Little Mermaid is set between Arendelle (Frozen) and Corona(Tangled), could it be that the sunken ship Ariel explores is in fact the remains of the ship that drowned the king and queen of Arendelle?
