Top 10 WTF Moments from Nickelodeon Animated Shows

Hopefully, you know the ones (ANY Nickelodeon cartoon is allowed here, but preferably the good ones first)

The Top Ten

1 Puffy Fluffy's true form in Spongebob Squarepants

I think a bigger what moment is SpongeBob not caring that Puffy Fluffy is trying to eat Gary right in front of him and instead yelling at Gary to put Fluffy down. - egnomac

Angry Video Game Nerd: "AND this thing, which I can't describe; I just CAN'T." - xandermartin98

I was just like what?!? when I saw that monstrosity! 😲😨 - PatrickStar3

2 Ren's "THESE HANDS" monologue from the "Stimpy's Fan Club" episode of Ren & Stimpy

I hate Ren & Stimpy... - IceBearRules


(crawls up onto Stimpy's bed and stares at him creepily while demented lullaby music plays in the background)

(camera cuts to an INCREDIBLY horrifying close-up shot of Ren's literal ear canal so that viewers can have themselves an ever-so-beautifully revolting view of his severely damaged brain and his rather awkwardly-shaped eye-sockets)
"How easily I could end the farce...with THESE hands...THESE...DIRTY(! )...HANDS! AND WITH THESE HANDS, I HOLD THE FATE OF MILLIONS..."
(briefly but VERY unsettlingly turns into Andross' giant-head-with-hands form from Star Fox 64)
"They think he's a god...(eyes glaze over and become eerily bloodshot as he systematically scans up and down Stimpy's unconscious body like only the most professionally certified of serial killers)...BUT HE'S AS MORTAL AS WE...I KNOW!
(suddenly begins acting out the motion of strangling ...more - xandermartin98

3 Organ-harvesting sequence from the "Dark Harvest" episode of Invader Zim

Even if the show DID admittedly try WAY too hard to be edgy, this is one moment where it actually succeeded in my opinion (seriously, HIDE YOUR KIDS for this scene if you haven't already) - xandermartin98

I will never know how this episode got past the censors it literally feels like watching a horror movie play out. - egnomac

4 Sheen getting his own show in Jimmy Neutron

I hate Planet Sheen. - KalloFox34

Yay, an entire show about the guy whose funniest line in the original series was most likely as follows, and I quote:

5 "Ren's Brain" episode from Ren & Stimpy

Basically, Stimpy is getting tired of Ren being so ridiculously grumpy all the time (you know, just like in Stimpy's Invention, which this episode is a downright AWFUL rehash of), so he straight-up LOBOTOMIZES him and then proceeds to spend presumably the next several hours frolicking in the local fauna with his former best friend's literally brainless corpse (whom he even goes as far as to substitute a flipping old-fashioned mid-20th-century circle-dial TELEPHONE as the brain OF)...

and then, once Ren's now-sentient-and-anthropomorphized brain finally arrives back home from work and sees his own undead body and Stimpy playing with each other, he engages in so ridiculously intense of a tentacle slap-fight with Stimpy that it literally blows the entire audience's minds (and in turn, the entire world itself) into smithereens from how absolutely terrible and nonsensical the episode is - xandermartin98

6 Spongebob's literal brain replica of his own house, complete with its very own sentient brain replica of Gary, in Spongebob Squarepants

"Don't ask. PLEASE." - Burgerpants, 2015 - xandermartin98

7 Rocko X Beverly Bighead ship-teasing episode (Leap Frogs) from Rocko's Modern Life

Believe it or not, BlargSnarf actually made a porn comic based off of this, and it is just absolutely, positively...hold on, wait a second, I'm not exactly feeling so good at the moment...BLEEEUAAAGH - xandermartin98

8 Tapeworm episode from Mr. Meaty

Since Mr. Meaty is not animated, I don;t think this counts. - KalloFox34

I wasn't actually that scared by this, personally, but it WOULD make a great setup for a Courage TCD episode - xandermartin98

9 Stimpy mouth-vore scene from the "Boy Who Cried Rat" episode of Ren & Stimpy

Easily THE most blatantly fetishistic scene I've EVER borne witness to in pretty much ANY technically non-adult cartoon (and believe me, I've seen a TONGUE) - xandermartin98

10 Rocko being voyeuristically filmed naked by Heffer and Filburt in the "Camera Shy" episode of Rocko's Modern Life

Worse yet is Heffer's facial expression when he addresses Rocko's nakedness

(seriously, it has to be seen to be believed)
EVEN worse yet is the fact that the recording itself also goes viral the next day - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 The Pool Monster in the episode The Tale of the Dead Man's Float of Are You Afraid of the Dark?

That show is not animated. - KalloFox34

12 Rocko playing with his appendix in Rocko's Modern Life
13 Lynn Sr. and Rita Loud Go Skinny Dipping in the Hotel Pool in the Loud House Episode "Suite and Sour"
14 Luna being revealed to like girls in The Loud House

This item is homophobic. - KalloFox34

They already had a gay couple. Why did they need another one?

Kids don’t need to be seeing that.

They don't need to see that it's okay to be gay/bi? Whatever you say, pal. - KalloFox34

15 I'm Not Tommy/I'm Not Stu Dream Sequence in Rugrats
16 Mr. Krabs trying to Drive Plankton to Suicide in SpongeBob SquarePants
17 Patrick tears his skin off (Sand Castles in the Sand) in SpongeBob SquarePants
18 A bull lifting weights gets his arms torn off with blood (No Pain, No Gain) in Rocko's Modern Life
