One interesting thing about being a parent is getting to watch kid’s television and children’s movies again as an adult. There are so many details that make no sense – and so many more that you finally realize are definitely not included for the kids in the audience.

To that end, these 14 pieces of information probably didn’t mean anything to you as a child….but you might find them interesting now.

14. Barney doesn’t exist.

I mean, obviously – but if you’ll notice, this “imaginary friend” only appears when there are no adults in the room.

13. Some Proud Family characters are named after Southern California streets.

La Cienega and Sunset Boulevards, to be exact.

12. This puberty joke on Victorious.

It’s actually pretty well-timed and funny.

11. This “balloon” looks a lot like a condom.

But I guess they’d find a lot of those in the ocean these days.

10. Miss Yvonne’s mind had no place in a children’s show.

I mean, neither did Pee Wee Herman’s, it turned out. So.

9. Helga’s mom on Hey, Arnold! had a drinking problem.

There’s definitely more than fruit in those “smoothies.”

8. Spongebob is about to get even weirder…

Because crabby patties are made from crabs, so Mr. Crabs…yeah.

7. Patrick lives under a rock for a reason.

Because he’s that dumb and clueless that, yes, he has literally been living under a rock.

6. The Crusty Crab is shaped like a lobster trap.

I wonder what exactly they’re trying to say here?

5. I guess there’s no point in lying to kids about Hollywood at any age.

They should know what they’re getting into, right?

4. The Victorious homage episode to The Breakfast Club made a few alterations.

I don’t think Bender said “vegan.”

3. There was a character named Faymen Phorchin on Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.

Fame and fortune. Now that’s the kind of boyfriend I want.

2. Also on Victorious, Tori’s mom seems to be having an affair?

I mean, I don’t know what else they would be implying.

1. That time Patrick thought Spongebob was saying “penis.”

One more reason to just lol at this show.
