The Witches scared me when I was younger but the Gene Wilder version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was even worse. Especially the tunnel bit.....

 http://www.keenaschips.co.uk/index.php?page=articles/misc_rainbow  <- That's disturbing for a whole different reason, LMAO!

Also I found that Treasure Island, some cartoon that was on, bloody 'ell, it'd be 1993 was a disturbing show but great. Also Dream Stone was disturbing (another early 90s cartoon on CITV)

Rainbow is disturbing...

I had never seen Rainbow on tv until recently. I don't really remember a whole lot of weird shows. I guess I can say that my little sister was really scared of NIMH.

Rainbow was great, I still can remember Zippy's voice in my head. I can do a passable impression too by only opening up a quarter of my mouth.

When I was a kid I use to love this cartoon called Telebugs. Everyday after school I run home and put on the TV waiting for them to come on.



I almost won myself the real Samantha robot of my own but unfortunately after jumping around with excitement and waving my wining ticket around. My dad ripped the ticket and I didnít get the robot.

Telebugs... name doesn't ring a bell, but the picture sure as hell does.
That's a program that really did scare me... I always associated it with death... but it was so long ago I can't even remember why.  confused It introduced me to the full spectrum of human emotions... laughter... sorrow... fear...  cry

You and me both! Problem is though is that that is all its doing, ringing a bell.
I can remember the robots, especially the screens on their fronts but everything else is just to vague.

Does anyone remember Rude Dog and the Dweebs? It was one of my favourite shows for a long time, it became a regular Saturday morning thing.   big grin



Frank Welker does some of the voices! It isn't disturbing as such, it was quality in fact, this just seemed like the right place for it.

Anyone remember You Can't Do That On Television? It was a Canadian children's sketch comedy show that aired in the late 80's on Nickeloden, Nick got all their slime antics from that show.

there was some sort of wizard of oz cartoon i remember watching. it was very scary.. mainly because dorothy didn't seem to be making any progress. i don't know if i missed the final episode, but to me, dorothy will be lost wandering in oz forever

a couple of shows i loved, which weren't scary at all were the smoggies and samurai pizza cats. just had to bring them up cos none of my friends remember them, but i'm sure i didn't dream all those episodes

The New (for the time) Adventures of Johnney Quest, was strange. A teenage girl got mummified alive in a episode based in South America!

He got stuck as a cat. FOREVER.  evil laugh That was the ending. What shocks me, is that it was one of the few kids shows around that actually HAVE an ending. The only other one I can think of is The Trapdoor.


I remember that Oz cartoon! You're right. At first it followed the story, then it went nuts, and it never seemed to end. I think at one point evil gnomes were trying to blow up the emerald city...   confused

Does anyone remember Dungeons And Dragons the gameshow?

Some Kid would wear a helmet, which effectively blinded him, whilst their mates told them where to go. Crappy 3-D effects all round!

Has anyone seen that disturbing program on now? Something called the "hoobs"? It's these aliens who try and find out about "tiddly-peeps" by walking round and taking orders from a mad alien professor. It's still on today... I think, at about 6am. I'm sure the purple one is gay though....

Hooble-dooble-doo?

That programme is quite a strange one, I never saw how it could be entertaining to little children at all.

The Hoobs...



I remember Knightmare! And there was this other show called Incredible Games as well, and the final game would be having to get letters out of the alphabet soup and spell a word (the contestants were "shrunk down" and had to get in the soup...)  big grin

"Oh, the second one wants custard, too."
Remember 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' or something to that extent? That was a really freaky show for kids to watch, I remember watching it when I was younger and being scared shitless when there was a living skeleton in the basement jumping out at the boy. Creepy.   frown

So you were scared by the Goosebumps Television show? They didn't follow the plots of the books very well, if I remember correctly.

No body bad-mouths the moomins!  mad

Anyhoo, Impy: that picture is creepy.

M0le: I remember "are you afraid of the dark", I think. Did it involve kids sitting round a campfire telling "spooky" stories?

The goosebump books always ended up the same way: the boy got back to his own universe, or woke up from his dream and realised that he was inside out, or that he really did have that mysterious cut on his face..... Even so, some of them really scared me  frown
