6 Disturbing Deaths And Suicide Messages In Kids' Toys And Shows

Childrens' television shows and toys are designed to be kid-friendly for obvious reasons, yet sometimes they contain really dark and twisted content.

Puss In Boots

Humpty Dumpty sacrifices himself so that Puss can save the Ugly Duckling.

SpongeBob SquarePants

There are several Squidward suicide innuendos in that it appeared he was going to commit suicide by sticking his head in the oven and hanging himself.

Tarzan

Clayton accidentally hangs himself. In the end, you can see the shadow of his body swaying from the vines when the lightning flashes.

Elmo

A little boy's Elmo toy started making death threats, including it saying "Kill James!" (the name of the little boy) after a battery change.

Princess Wand

The little girl peeled back the foil of a princess wand to reveal an actual picture of a girl slitting her wrists.

Cartoons

Countless cartoon characters over the years have been shown to commit suicide in various ways.

Being so young, most children don't notice these hidden meanings and messages. Nonetheless, it begs the question: Why include such horrid images and references? To mature kids? To glorify violence? To get kids used to the real world? To manipulate children? To encourage children to kill themselves when they're depressed? There is no straight answer to any of these questions, only conspiracy theories. And, even then, it doesn't change how alarming and spine-chilling this discovery is.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
