What cartoon theme songs scared you when you were young?

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

      It didn't scare me, scare me ... but the opening to Count Duckula was creepy when I was little. I love that show!

          Are You Afraid of the Dark isn't a cartoon.

          There hasn't been a single cartoon theme song that scared me.

                ohhhh. i didn't see the cartoon part! i thought they just meant any theme song. Ok, well cartoon-wise, I think the themesong for Ahh! Real Monsters scared me a bit when i was around 4 or so.

                  Would you find the theme music to The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show to be scary? The horns and all...

                    I got spooked every time, Courage the Cowardly Dog Show, came on. Not anymore though, just when I was young.

                        Don't really think there were ever any cartoon themes. I agree with the Are You Afraid of the Dark though as well as Goosebumps.

                            Are You Afraid of the Dark scared me. So did Count Duckula when I was 4 Partly cuz of the theme song and partly cuz I wasn't allowed to watch it so I was afraid of getting caught.

                              "Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers"... anyone?... anyone? Well, maybe I wasn't scared, it was more of a "sick to my stomache" sort of feeling.

                                I loved the "Inspector Gadget" theme song! I thought it was almost as popular a theme song as Super Mario Bro.s was for Video Game songs.

                                  Reading Rainbow. There was just something creepy about live action people turing into these badly drawn animations of themselves.

                                        the closest thing I can come to to a cartoon ANYTHING that scared me when I was a kid was Howard the Duck. Animated, but not animated, close enough.
