There’s a Vine that has been going around recently that seems to be putting Hey Arnold! fans in quite the panic. The Vine in question was actually posted in 2013 according to MTV News, and it shows what appears to be a pretty lewd sex act in the background of a scene between Arnold and Helga. Childhood shattered, right?

Not so fast! The AV Club reached out to Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett and got a definitive answer on the entire situation:

“The scene is from ‘Arnold’s Thanksgiving,’” Barlett says, “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.”
