    I remember not wanting to drink water from a glass for the longest time. An episode of Captain Planet was to blame when they were shrunk by that lady and added to Kwame's water canteen with some parasites freak me out at the age of six.

    I remember that episode.

    Oh Danny... you did NOT know what was coming for you.
    Yeah, it's Yuuki. Got a problem with that?

    The scene in Justice League: Doom where Cyborg uses his X-ray vision to display a VERY unnerving image of a skeletal Wonder Woman with her brain exposed and her eyeballs staring straight at you, so we can further see that she was drugged by Cheetah. This is because I have endosomatophilia, and anything even RELATED to the inside of the body turns me on, and I wanted it to be Cyborg the X-ray was of. The fact he's narrating over this picture makes it even WORSE. This scene scared me and pissed me off so much, I wrote a script for a NEW version of the movie (actually going to be an episode in a Justice League series I'm making and pitching to DC) along with a friend of mine, and in it Cyborg is drugged by Cheetah instead and Supergirl uses her X-ray vision to display a similar image, but of Cyborg.

    Yeah. Whoever wrote that image in is a Nightmare Fetishist.

    The commercial for Yoshi's Island, in which a guy in an Italian restaurant ate so much, he exploded. I remember it used to mess up my viewings of Cartoon Network cartoons and was at its worst during Space Ghost Coast to Coast, which came on late at night, so I'd have to spend more than half of the show thinking about the horrible image of the entrails spewing over the restaurant and spelling "PLAY IT LOUD." What the FUCK, Nintendo?!

    Speaking of Space Ghost, the episode "Curses," where Space Ghost was put under a curse to eat people. Nowadays, it's hilarious, but back then, seeing my favorite superhero with red eyes and IIRC sharp teeth scared the fuck out of me.
    Also, there was one episode that ended with the usual Cartoon Network logo, except the happy, surf-rock soundtrack had been replaced by a series of eerie beeping noises. I couldn't watch that episode to the end subsequent times, and if it entered my mind while I was trying to sleep, I would be supremely freaked out.

    Also, the Nickelodeon bumper with the teeth and glasses spazzing out and singing the Nick jingle. I dreaded a show ending because of that shit.

    I already mentioned the Sesame Street website bumper in a different thread.

    The Turner logo at the end of 2 Stupid Dogs kinda creeped me out, with its grey background and imposing golden letters. Even looking at it now gives me the creeps.

    When I was little, I saw some sci-fi cartoon. All I could remember is that it took place at night and I was very scared. After it popped up in my mind when I was 15, and years of searching, I deduced that what I saw was the Superman TAS episode "New Kids In Town," which is very weird because I grew to love that episode around age 6 or 7 (I had a crush on Brainiac.) My memory must have warped it over the years, because I remember what I saw looked very different. Apparently, my preschool teacher must have put it on not knowing what it was (she was a real nerd... she used the "S for Superman" sketch from Sesame Street to educate us about the letter S...) and lemme tell you, it was not a good decision. Funny thing is, all the videos of that episode on YouTube are COPPA'd, due to the Legion of Super Heroes' bright colors. I guess it's a new generation.

    The Magnetic Video logo at the beginning scared me to death with cheesy elevator music and that phantom voiceover saying "By special arrangement with Viacom International" and the words "Magnetic Video Corporation" repeated over and over and over again as it scrolls. Those are my painful memories watching logos on TV.


    Here it is

    DUH! Viacom International also owns Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures.

    Yep. There was one with a little girl who is with her mom while going shopping which she says to Yoshi (real life dinosaur) that he's cute. But as soon as her mom unlocks the car, Yoshi then throws an egg straight towards the vehicle.

    View the commercial here.

    The scary Disney owned Flashbang bumper logos frightened me each time I watch a movie on VHS (Pretty Woman 10th Anniversary Edition, James and the Giant Peach, Armageddon (1998), etc). I ran out of my bedroom and cried to my mom. 100% scarier than the THX logo shown on one of my Disney movies on VHS (The Princess Diaries, to be exact).

    Call it Cliché or a bit of an awkward choice, but "I'm Not Stu" really got me.

    I love the Sonic parody of that. "I'M NOT SONIC! I'M MY ORIGINAL CHARACTER, BLONIC!!!"

    The first scary movie I saw as a kid was Carrie the part that gave me bad nightmare was the eyes of the statue of Jesus on the cross glowing. I had nightmares after that. Also although it was not when I was a child The Dawn is your enemy scared me a few times.


    Mr. Bogedy never scared me as a kid but one thing always scared me Scary Stories, and More scary stories to tell in the dark it was mostly the pictures that scared me I read it when everyone was asleep i did not go to sleep easily I was afraid the woman will come looking for her coins.

    hexadecimal from reboot still scares me.

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

    Actually I loved hexadecimal character so much i used the name as my name in games a lot.
