Added DiffLines:

** The kid is probably still in there and wants gravel for... Some reason.

Added DiffLines:

** As noted in the Fridge page, it could also be directed at Roy, who would make the hug more scarier than it's meant to be.


** If you don't buy into the media theory, then you can easily interpret the story as being that everything is the imagination of Red Guy. He doesn't want to admit he's grown up and wants to mentally stay a child because becoming an adult means becoming what he sees as a boring, passionless person like all the other Red Guys he knows in the real world and you see near the end. Every episode's musical lesson is about some fear adults have: losing your creativity and becoming boring, realization of how much time in your life has passed and is now gone, the problems with finding love and how it's not as simple as you thought as a child, the internet and technology in general is changing and you're starting to feel left behind, that you need to be much more careful about what you eat now, and that your dreams may be lost. Remember that in the end Roy never actually stops him from pulling the plug, or really stops him from doing anything. You could even interpret it as him motioning towards the plug, telling Red Guy that he needs to let his childhood go.

The reason there's 3 new people at the end means someone else in the world wants to stay in their childhood and it's their turn to go through all of this.

** 19 June 1955 (the date so commonly referenced throughout the series) as well as 19 June 2016, when DHMIS 6 was released, were both Father's Day. The character who seems to control the whole show was Roy, who is ''Yellow Guy's father, as well as being a DirtyOldMan and generally creepy. Since June 20th is no longer Father's Day, the show is free from Roy's corrupting influence.

* Just what does the title mean? And who’s saying it? Yellow Guy? Sure, he and the others do spend some time being scared, but none of them ever refuse hugs (or are offered any), and in fact would probably welcome one precisely due to being scared. Also, why, if one is scared, would they ‘’not’’ want to be comforted in some way?

** During the series, the three puppets meet teachers that appear to be friendly and helpful, but are actually evil and, sometimes, violent. The title could be interpreted as the Puppets refusing to be "hugged" (taught) by the teachers, as they ''know'' how messed up it will turn.
