The 15 Most Bizarre TV Conspiracy Theories Ever

15. House is a Grown Up Doogie Howser 

We start our list with a popular fan theory that started to gain a lot of momentum at the height of House’s fame and success. When Dr Gregory House burst onto our TV screens back in 2004, the grumpy, antisocial, sociopathic, drug dependent genius that is Dr House was greatly compared to the child genius Doogie Howser.

14. Jessica Fletcher is a Killer

For those unfamiliar with Murder, She Wrote, this show centres on a sweet middle aged woman who writes crime novels and also solves murders in her spare time. Think Beatrix Potter mixed with Sherlock Holmes.

13. The Flintstones and The Jetsons Share a Post-Apocalyptic World

An interesting theory here that involves the grandaddy of the domestic cartoon series. Before there was South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons there were The Flintstones and then later The Jetsons.

12. Saved By The Bell is All in Zack’s Mind

This theory has been around for almost as long as the internet itself has. Back in the early 1990s Saved by the Bell was a hugely popular show for both kids and teenagers. Centered around the lives of a typical high school, Saved by the Bell was what all of us wanted high school to be. Cool, funny and filled with attractive people. But that’s the point of this theory; was it all a fantasy?

11. The Count Feeds On the Children of Sesame Street

What could possibly be wrong or sinister about one of the most innocent shows on TV we hear you ask? After all, Sesame Street has been entertaining us all for generations with its counting and spelling. However, mixed in with all the puppets, muppets and colorful entertainment, no one has ever really questioned that a vampire lives in the middle of all this. Not just any vampire, but the Count himself.

10. Toby Flenderson is the Scranton Strangler

The US version of The Office is one of those rare sitcoms and TV shows that actually surpasses the original source. Although it’s true that the British Office won a ton of awards, fans and many may argue that it rewrote the sitcom. However, with more time the US Office got the chance to delve more into its characters and their backstories, which made it more entertaining and gave it more scope for storytelling. The most interesting character that made use of this is Toby Flenderson.

8. Winnie the Pooh and Friends Each Represent a Mental Health Disorder

We all grew up with these charming and wonderful stories by A.A Milne. Set in the Hundred Acre Wood, the books, and later TV shows and movies, focused on a young boy named Christopher Robin and the adventures he got into with his stuffed animal friends. What could be sweeter and more magical than that? Well, there are theories, and not just by fans but by medical associations no less, that seem to think that Christopher Robin was not well. In fact, the animals that he surrounded himself with are manifestations of his fractured mind and possible mental health disorders.

7. Gilligan’s Island is Hell

There have been a few conspiracy theories surrounding the popular Gilligan’s Island. One fan theory goes into the very nature of the show itself and how Mr. Howell ended up on a boat with a case full of cash. The answer of course is that it was all a drug running mission and that Howell had cash, and a load of clothes with him, so that he could get the drugs and then escape from the country if he needed to.

6. Doctor Claw is the Original Inspector Gadget

This popular children’s cartoon from the 1980s may have more depth to it than many would suspect. Inspector Gadget was a lovable, if not bumbling and incompetent detective, complete with bionic limbs and plenty of gadgets. (We all wanted a hat that could turn into a helicopter when we were kids.) The Inspector himself was a cross between Robocop, The Six Million Dollar Man and Inspector Clouseau and was aided by his niece Penny and her super intelligent dog Brain. The three of them would spend each week trying to stop the evil Doctor Claw, who we never see on screen.

5. The Fresh Prince is Dead

This is a conspiracy theory that has been around for years and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. We all remember the show that kick started Will Smith‘s career and turned him into a superstar; a poor street kid who is suddenly made to move and live with his rich relatives in posh Bel-Air. The show ran for years and is still popular and funny today.

4. Breaking Bad is the Prequel to Walking Dead

These two hugely popular shows may well be linked by more than just a voice over connection. They may well be prequels and sequels to each other and it all has to do with the blue crystal meth.

3. The Doctor is Not the Only Time Lord Out There

This theory delves into a multitude of characters, universes and franchises and may sound like a bit of a stretch, but we thought it was interesting enough to put on our list.

2.  Firefly Was Cancelled By the Government

1. The Simpsons

When a show has been on the air for as long as The Simpsons has, there is bound to be a multitude of stories and conspiracy theories that surround it. Out of the theories that have come up from The Simpsons it’s actually their supposed predictive powers that make the number one spot on our list.
