Nickelodeon and Mental Illness with Sarah and Alex Franklin

POSTED ON August 11 2017

This one goes out to the 90’s babies! And also to anyone who’s ever wondered if there’s a little more to their cartoons than meets the eye. Also people who love sad shit. This week we talk to the hilarious Franklin sisters, hosts of the podcast Trust The (Bachelor) Process and stellar comedians and writers. Sarah and Alex have a little theory about some of your Nickelodeon shows, and baby, it ain’t pretty. They believe that Doug, Rugrats, Spongebob Squarepants and Hey Arnold are actually about the ravages of loss and mental illness. Yes, your favorite cartoon kiddos are actual irradiated, depressed, schizophrenic, racist, and just downright old-fashioned grief phantoms. Fun!
