    When I was younger I was always creeped out by the Xiaolin Showdown theme song especially at the end when they would scream, but as of today it is something that I don't know why was I really scared of it in the first place.

    Not that I remember...but the intro theme of every Dexter's Lab episode sounded slow and ominous

    Mr yuk isn't a cartoon but the commercial scared me. When I would hear it I would hide behind the couch.

    I remember seeing that on an old tape my neighbor had of Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato) recorded off WPIX 11 in 1982. I loved the synthesizers in it! However, my neighbor told me she was frightened by it when she was five. It'd mostly come on during Speed Racer, same goes for the Jewish Chauquata Society PSA with the angry cartoon guy. She always hoped Racer X would run over the scary stuff with his car. But she liked getting the Mr. Yuk stickers and putting them on dangerous household objects. I remember when they did that in our school, I was thinking "I saw that on TV!" even though the PSA hadn't been on actual TV since 1986 (and HOW! It's from 1971! The Moog synthesizer is outdated! And ladies and gentlemen, that's why I LOVE Moog synthesizer stuff from 1971. I.E. the old PBS logo, Kraftwerk, Switched-On Bach...)

    Also; even though I loved the show, the beginning of the intro to Scooby-Doo with the flock of bats flying toward you scared the living crap out of me when I was 4 and first started watching Scooby on Cartoon Network. I eventually got used to it.

    Scary CARTOON themes? None. But the intros to the New Twilight Zone (1985-1987) and Tales From The Darkside...yeah.

    lol same here that and the Pinball Number Count on Sesame Street when the ball goes through the haunted house and the scary ghosts and then OH SHIT A BAT WITH POWER TRIP EYES!! Anyway yeah the Scooby-Doo intro still catches me off guard if I'm not ready for it unless I think "Hey, Batman's here!" (Batman and Robin did guest appearances on Scooby-Doo)
