    Brak Presents The Brak Show Starring Brak (one-off/special), or The Brak Show (which was longer-running)? 'cause the first one ruled. The other one, not so much.

    Zorak on the other one was just lame, like everything about that show. I could see how you would say he was creepy but I just thought he sucked. I don't remember how (or even if) he was on Presents.

    Actually, they all creeped me out. Brak and Zorak, Moltar, heck even TOM from Toonami were all kinda creepy for a while, but I still liked them. (I had a crush on TOM)
    I still watched Cartoon Planet and Toonami religiously, but at the same time, they really creeped me out. And for the record, the Toonami arc where TOM was trapped in hyperspace creeped the math out of me.
    EDIT: TOM's death in Countdown is officially the scariest Toonami moment IMO

    When I was growing up, i hated cockroaches. I remember one time i was playing piano and i saw something fall and it was a roach and it made that creepy jingling noise. Also, there was this one ad for multiple sclerosis where it showed a woman getting chained around her body.
    I remember at the end of every x-files episode, there was this logo with a film projector noise and you hear a child say, "I made this!"
    There was also this ad about smoking where it shows a woman smoking and she develops tar all over and she lets out a loud scream and I remember my sister describing how the tar was all over her face, lungs and all over her body. I would hate to see how someone would react if he/she saw her like that. I looked online and i learned that smoking is bad for your taste buds too. I am never going to smoke. Also seeing pictures of tornadoes scared me a lot because of the dark black clouds and sky covering the daylight

    That is one of my favorite logos of all time!

    For some bizarre reason I don't understand, I have to mute the TV/computer during Metal Sonic's death scene in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie. It has to do with the part where he says "There is only one Sonic", the way his voice sounds just creeps me out. I love Metal Sonic, but god that voice...
    EDIT: I now love that effing voice. It sounds like a retarded Texan lmao ("this Texan guy we hardly even know")

    I remember wanting to avoid watching some episodes of the show "Rugrats" when I was little. Some of that stuff was a little unsettling.

    And if anyone wanted to know why Trapped in Hyperspace creeped me out... of course it was the demonic deep-voiced computer virus, Swayzak. Even then I kinda had a crush on him.

    Moving back to Cartoon Planet for a moment, "[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlBCtwXQ2jk]Messages from Outer Space[/url]" freaked me out when I was 10. This was before I knew what Ultra Seven was. Note that I did not grow up in the '90s, this was 2013, when I watched the 2012 revival and was interested in the first incarnation.

    hexadecimal from reboot still scares me.

    Some of Bob's off-model facial expressions were pretty creepy.

    The Mohawk Productions logo, the horsefly close up from that episode of SpongeBob, and King Ramses from Courage the Cowardly Dog.
    Yeah, it's Yuuki. Got a problem with that?

    Also the episode of Hey Arnold where Arnold and Gerald were fighting and Arnold dreamt that he and Gerald were old men while Phil looked like a zombie. I never watched that episode again until the episode of SpongeBob where they sold chocolate to the zombie lady came out.
    The Snee-Oosh logo at the end of the show scared me too.

    Speaking of SpongeBob, I was always slightly creeped by the episode where Sandy threatened to pour spicy hot sauce on SpongeBob's tongue and we saw the drop of sauce's human face.

    And the episode of Rocko where Heffer goes to Hell when he chokes on his food. It was the part where the Devil starts spinning his head and shooting milk from his udders that put me in ready to freak mode. The episode it aired with, where Rocko got a promotion, went insane, and fired Filburt, kinda scared me too, thanks to Rocko's creepy eyes there.

    Finally, the hermit episode of Ren & Stimpy, the CatDog episode where they think the world's gonna end, and the episode of Angry Beavers where Norbert got possessed by the talking pond scum all freaked me out.

    And this is coming from someone who watched Toonami religiously as a six year old.

    Oh shit, I completely forgot about that. Thanks for the nightmares, boy. And I loved that SpongeBob episode. "What are they selling!?"

    The first time I encountered Giygas in EarthBound was a pretty terrifying moment. I remember asking my neighbor, "what is that spiral and why is it screaming?" But the fear went away as she began to describe Ness being eaten by it, which made me laugh somehow.

    Then, around the same time, Kellogg's began running commercials for Rice Krispies Treats where a boy or a girl craved the snacks, and to scare whoever was eating it into giving them one, morphed their face into a hideous claymation abomination and screamed "I want one!" Every time I knew that was going to happen, I covered myself with a blanket. What the hell is wrong with you, Kellogg's. Strangely, I have a recollection of the boy's monster face looking like that of Ickis' from Aaah Real Monsters!, which was one of my favorite shows during the time.

    PBS used to air a commercial during their children's block where they'd show a black screen while creepy giggling sounded; then a door would open and it'd zoom in REAL fast to show the mascots of the block (the PBS logo with arms and legs) yelling "SURPRISE!" and laughing insanely. There was even a shortened version which started with the zoom! This scared me so bad I threw a blanket over myself and plugged my ears after the local funding ended. My neighbor had to write to my station demanding they stop showing it!

    Some of the close-ups on Ren & Stimpy were kinda freaky, as well as that episode of the Powerpuff Girls with the zombie magician.

    This is actually quite recent (2 years ago almost) but Episode 2 of Toonami's "Countdown" event has a scene where Future Sara tells the present Sara about what happened that caused everything to be like this. The part that scared/scares me is when lightning from the mysterious nebula TOM and Sara are in strikes the ship and STRIKES TOM, AND THEY ACTUALLY SHOW HIM WRITHING IN PAIN, DYING. He's engulfed in electricity, and the part I don't like the most is when he crosses his arms up to his chest, like he can't stand the pain he's in anymore. Bonus points for having Sara and Clyde cower in fear and not helping, and NO DIALOGUE besides sound effects and music. TOM's screaming would have made it even worse, IMHO. Also, in Episode 4, the aftermath of TOM's death - "There is no TOM. Only Vindication." (Even though "Only Vindication." is way too much of a funny line!) But even that can't compare to the death scene in Episode 2. I promised to never watch the TIE again because of how much the TIE sucked, and because that scene was soul-scarring. I don't even wanna watch "The Forge" (the upcoming TIE set for release this year) because I don't trust the Toonami staff anymore after this...

    Funny thing is I'm going through the same phase now with Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law... it unsettles me kinda yet I just can't look away... of course we all know why I like this show... (hint: in his pants)

    I think it's just that shows I haven't seen before kinda give me the creeps. That's all.
