In “Things That Might Ruin Your Chidlhood” news, a Vine that has recently been making the rounds has given Hey Arnold! fans something to get squeamish about. The Vine was originally released in 2013, but kind of exploded in the past few days for some strange reason. Oh Internet, you never cease to amaze!
So the Vine in question seems to show a particularly raunchy sex act, go to your parents or Google for explanation, that’s not my job. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is in all it’s unglory:
That looks pretty bad. The AV Club investigated further however, and got a quote from Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett, who had this to say:
The scene is from ‘Arnold’s Thanksgiving and the kids are leaving Mr. Simmons’ apartment, where his family is arguing at the table. That’s Uncle Chuck eating a turkey with his hands. I assure you it was never intended to be what the guy tweeted it was.
Hey that particular act often starts as something that was never intended to be. Just saying!
I mean it does look pretty suspect and as we all know, lots of cartoons push the envelope when it comes to slipping in naughty things. Heh, heh. But sadly, even though I want to believe Uncle Chuck is eating something other than turkey, this isn’t an episode of Girls, and Joy will have to wait to experience that particular joy some other day.
Here two pics that prove it’s innocent:
What do you think? Do you want to believe?
