23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
Marvin Finklehimer is the red guy that won the academy award in the Family Guy cutaway when Peter admits to stuffing the ballot box.The reason he's so old in The Amazing World of gumball could either be because the Family Guy episode happened much earlier (As well as the fact that the cutaway is supposed to be a flashback) or really good makeup artists. Compare Mr. Finklehimer with the creature in the bottom left corner: ◊
William communicates through telepathy......and Gumball and Darwin are simply too stupid to hear him.
Gumball is from the world of There she is!!.Nicole and Richard just happen to be pro-Interspecies Romance
Darwin isn't a pet and really is Gumball and Anais' brother.The family had him registered as a house pet to hide the fact that Nicole had an affair with a goldfish.
Masami is secretly a lesbian.Am I the only one who thinks that all of Masami's rainbow connections have a...you know...deeper meaning? The way she was treating lady Gumball in "The Dress" was a little suggestive, especially the "I could fly you over" part. She's supposed to think she's better than everyone, so why is she worshipping this pretty new girl? And in "The Pressure", she might have been talking up boyfriends so much and trying to seem better than everyone so that she could hide her sexuality
Elmore is not just a city.It's a planet. FUCKING ELMORE STREAM. If it's supposed to be their universe's parody of YouTube, wouldn't that be the same for the entire planet? Only, they say Elmore is a city. This can only mean that Elmore is really a city-sized planet.
Gumball's Mom is apparently a very young mother who's in her 20'sSo it all started when Gumball's Mom became pregnant by some guy during the age when she was in High School (possibly younger), she gave birth to Gumball. However, the guy didn't seem to last long with Gumball's mom, so he left her all alone to take care of her son. After she finished High School, she managed to get a job at the Rainbow Factory, which is a pretty good job to support the both of them. Later in life, Gumball's Mom met and married Gumball's Dad. Gumball's Dad and Gumball's little step-sister joined the family. Together, they currently live in a nice family home (along with Darwin). The Evidence:
Everyone lives in The Land of Ooo.Why the hell not?
The Amazing World of Gumball's universe takes place after Chowder.
Alternately, everyone lives on Living IslandPufnstuf's just developed it a bit since the '70's.
Mr. Small is a refugee from The Problem Solverz.
Carrie is a relative of High-Five Ghost.
The Robinsons are Gorgs
The Amazing World of Gumball takes place several years after There she is!!
Tina and her father were once models.That is, they started out as models of dinosaurs, on display in Elmore's museum. Just like everything else in Elmore, the dinosaur models came to life and became sentient, and were cast out of society after the resulting rampage.
The writers of The Amazing World of Gumball are Yaoi Fans.Seriously, the amounts of Ho Yay between Gumball and Darwin that the show got away with is so astonishing that someone or some people have to be this.
Banana Joe is related to the smart banana who befriended IM WeaselApparently, the banana who befriended IM Weasel in "My Friend The Smart Banana" had a wife and kids. One of the kids grew up to be the mother or father of Banana Joe so that means.....Banana Joe's grandfather was a good friend of IM Weasel.
Gumball only has a name that's weird because his dad named himRichard seems to frequently fantasize about food-people, so naming his kid after a kind of candy is pretty much what you would expect.
Bobert is being used for scientific research.A group of scientists created him to report on the behaviors on his classmates, the scientists want to know how an incredibly diverse group of children are able to co-exist peacefully. This also explains why Bobert has an Erase Memory button, when he is done with his reporting on Elmore Junior High, the scientists will erase his memory and start the expriment all over again and place him in another school to continue the research.
Gumball's mother (Nicole) is a workaholic.We find this out in that episode "The Painting" she's probably got so used to providing for her children, adoptive son and good for nothing husband so much it felt normal to her, and when she had to all of the sudden stop her routine because of Principal Brown's recommendation it caused significant damage to her psyche and decided to go back to 7a.m-9a.m to 5p.m-7p.m lifestyle for her best.
This show was recycled from its possible predessor "Chowder".Chowder was pretty good when it first started but as the series got older it really didn't get all that stronger. It started to become very far-fetched and unrealistic to the point of which it became tasteless. That explains why the series ended so early, it was in the not bad but then again not very good category, that's why they didn't just all of a sudden end it like a lot of failed cartoon series. So they ended it very subtly with a movie, it was at least good enough for that. Then very soon after the series cancellation here comes Gumball with his cute little fangs. Even though this show is similar to "Chowder" it is a whole lot more realistic, come on now answer my question. Even if the creators of "Chowder didn't create "The Amazing World of Gumball" it is still recycled from the new classic we all know and love "Chowder". They couldn't just throw away Chowder completely.
Contradicting the The Amazing World of Gumball's universe takes place after Chowder theory this show takes place after Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
Alternatively: Foster's preceeds Chowder, which preceeds GumballWe already know the theory about how Chowder preceeds Gumball, so I'll skip that. Imaginary friends formed their own society hundreds of years after Foster's. After hundreds more years, Chowder happened. In another part of the world, there's a land called Ooo. And, to add to the theory, 200 years before Foster's there was a young sailor named Flapjack.
Later in the series Gumball's and Penny's relationship will be put to a serious test.Some really attractive boy or girl comes along and one of them will have to choose. Just like in some show when there are two really good friends who's friendship is eventually put to the test, it could happen to these two. Penny is Gumball's only real friend anyway. I said Penny because Darwin is his adoptive brother, even though he is a super good companion.
One of the members in the help crew, even possibly the creator, has a freaky animal fetish.Why else would you give anthropomorphic animals attractive human futures. Think of any other show that had anthropomorphic animals - do they have attractive human features like that? The cute faces are alright, but everything down there is somewhat suspicious, don't you think?
Bobert is a sly parody of Robot Jones.He has two robot parents, he is studying the nature of organic... well, organisms, he is trying somewhat to fit in and not be a high tech bucket of bolts, and finally he has super strength. For those of you who watched Robot Jones or at least looked it up just now, does this sound any familiar to any of you.
Carrie is a Slave of the flesh.Despite the fact that she is a spirit she surprisingly enough harbors the three sins of flesh which are Envy, Gluttony definitely enough and Lust; here's how. Envy- Her desire for other people's things such as Gumball's body and little appreciation for what she has. Gluttony- Her immense consumption of food to the point of waste. Remember that Gluttony isn't limited to just food and it has do with keep wanting more of anything. Lust- Her desire to go on immoral eating binges. Let's not forget that Lust is doing anything immoral for the sake of physical pleasure not just immoral sexual acts.
Elmore is an alternate version of Springfield.This is very possible by how Gumball's family is like the Simpsons and how almost everyone else is like citizens of Springfield. Like: Gumball - Bart. Nicole - Marge. Richard - Homer. Darwin - Milhouse. Anais - Lisa or Maggie. (Most likely Lisa, because of the intelligence.) And more.
Carrie is Carrie White.Kind of a stupid guess but it could be. She probably has gone emo after what happened to the prom (just see how the movie ended if you're not in the know). However, she was already kinda emo from the start (or just plain shy but not to be labeled emo yet).
This show takes place in the '90s.Think about it: The designs of the settings and vehicles. The fact that they have a retro TV stand - with fuzzy-looking programs - rather than a flatscreen (in which you also see a VHS tape labelled "Wrestling" at the top). In "The Secret," there's a scene where Gumball tries to prank-call Darwin by using a telephone booth. A telephone booth— you don't see those around much, anymore; also, the design of their house phone doesn't really look as updated as they do today. In "The Genius," Gumball discovers the Internet for the first time while trying to learn how to use a computer. I don't think having a computer was very common back in those times. And everyone's clothing look quite plain, compared to what you see middle schoolers wearing today. And to top it all off, the title logo looks like it's from a pixel-made video game.
Anais' genius; she actually got it from her dadYou may think it's absurd but do you know why such a guess? Because in the episode, "The Laziest" Richard was able to change the channel with his mind (or "unique abilities") like someone with ESP (or telekinesis for a more familiar term). It maybe merely an Ass Pull but nobody can do that unless they're really smart (I got that from Matilda by the way). The only reason that he is dimwitted all the time because he's probably autistic but not the bad kind.
Everyone is on drugsYep even the kids. Elmore is supposed to be a town full of guys who sell shrooms, crack, LSD and many more.
Carrie's parents are witches/necromancersHow could Carrie be both a dead girl AND born a ghost? She was stillborn/miscarried, but her parents brought her spirit back.
Gumball will find himself, and get a sex change later in life.
The World of Gumball is the future of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, after a race war rose up between man and the toons for domination of Earth.The toons won.
Gumball an Penny will eventually become an Official Couple.
Nicole makes a career selling vomitMasami has been shown to be capable of vomiting rainbows. Misami's father owns the rainbow factory. Think about it.
Penny being curvier in later episodes is caused by puberty.She is at that age.
Larry keeps switching jobs because of Gumball and Darwin.They keep getting him in trouble so he gets fired and has to find a new job.
"The Authority" was supposed to air before "The Fridge."It would explain Nicole's behavior. In the past, she was overly protective of the kids, but after seeing Grandma Jojo's parenting turn them lazy and helpless, she overcompensated in the wrong direction and tried to make them more competitive.
The Wattersons were Killed Off for Real as a result of "The Finale"near the end of the episode an Angry Mob stormed the Wattersons home. They would so pissed at the stuff the family did over the series and the episode in question (Witch included two Kaijus let loose on Elmore and stuffing one of the characters in an envelope and folding it with the person inside and other horrible things in that episode alone.) By this point the citizens are convinced that the family as a whole has crossed the Moral Event Horizon and felt it necessary to kill them in cold vengeful blood (even the kids. but then again, they were responsible for most of the damage anyway). The episode ended short because it served as a Gory Description Shot.
Underneath her shell, Penny is a jackalope.A Jackalope is a critter from North American myth. Basically, a rabbit with deer-like antlers. In Penny's case, she has antlers and pawed hands and feet sticking out of holes in her shell. If she was a deer, she would have hooves instead of toes.
World of TAWOG is a horribly distorted realityIt would explain what happened to the world in The Job. Basically, the world where Gumball lives is very weird and cartoonish. Richard eversed [[spoiler: by having a job, raised the bar to uncontrollable levels and thus, unknowingly he distorted everything in his path, for example, turning his wife into a blobulous puddle. If he did succeed to give pizza whole and unharmed....
There will eventually be a Token Human character.
Nicole is a literal. SPAWN. OF SATAN.I mean come on! The evidence is SO obvious! She is shown to have souls in her eyes. Can burn plastic through mind control. And even suck out someones LIFE FORCE.
In "The Allergy", Gumball gets his amazing reaction skills from none other than....His mother....seems that Paintball War thing is starting to take affect on him.
Penny's family are really just [[spoiler: Shapeshifting aliens that have come to Elmore to "fit" in
