Has any body seen the Watership Down film? That really frightened me when I was younger and it still does! I think it was the graphic detail of the animations that does it! Eerie shadows, cuts on the rabbits and blood everywhere, its so horrific! If you haven't seen it I'd advise you not to watch it. I think I may have been traumatised for life!    frown

Goosebumps never really scared me, I found them quite enjoyable to read at a young age, but never scary.

"Are You Afraid of the Dark?" however, had some shit scary storylines (well they were to me when I was younger). All I can remember about it is children usually got trapped in a dark place, ran around for a good bit, then ran away from some evil guy. They usually got caught at the end though.

That's what I hated about it. They almost always got caught and it sort of left you hanging. Man I hated that show.

I have seen it, and I agree totally. That movie was really scary.

... Although it's not a children's movie persay, Who Framed Roger Rabbit used to scare me, and I have no idea why. It wasn't the villains that scared me... it was Roger.

One episode of My Parents Are Aliens was called "Beauty and the Breast" in which Brian, the father, decided to be more feminine by growing a pair of breasts. I thought this was wonderfully crude for a childrens programme.

Has anyone seen a show called "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids on CITV??? Its target audience is 7-10 years, but it scares the crap out of me and I'm 13!     frown

Edit: I hated the bit in Roger Rabbit when that guy was run over by a steam roller.

I remember being sick once when watching Watership Down, but I had just eaten a load of pickled onions! The film never scared me that much.

My Parents Are Aliens is now crap. It used to be good when it had the original actress playing the mum...and without the canned laughter...

Nah I dont think it was that. I remember Nightmare though- it used to really freak me out.

The Goosebumps book series never scared me when I was younger, with one exception: 'Welcome to Dead House', the very first book. Now that was scary as hell, expecially for kids.
Drunknmunky: I have seen 'Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids' before. It's a weird show but it's in no way scary. You can figure out what's going to happen in the end after about thirty seconds into the show. They're actually kind of funny.   smile

Are You Afraid of the Dark in its early form had decent stories some slightly scary (the clown one, maybe, or the monster in the basement?).  I watched X-Files as a young kid about the same time though and that filled in the scary far better  wink

Anyways this Se7en the Animated Series is just awful, anyone else comment?

I found the "Night of the Living Dummy" Goosebumps books quite scary. I hate dolls. If I find one of my sister's Barbie dolls in the house somewhere, I have to put it in a cupboard or in another room where I cant see it.

Yes it was. I knew some boys in 2nd grade who were dying to see that movie. It was a KID show on WB wasn't it?
Plus Drunkenmonkey, I agree. I've never liked dolls. They stare at you with their eyes and they are always watching you. And Barbie is just stupid.

What about Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?.. The boat song, and oopma loompa's freaked me out.. and Gene Wilder? I can laugh about it now..

It's probably been brought up, but oh well.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit was kinda disturbing too, as well as The Hobbit by Rankin Bass (when I was real little)..

.. I didn't ask you for a completely reasonable excuse, I asked you to get busy..

Here's some that I haven't forgotten, oh my no.....I still wake up at night......

Willo The Wisp (Kenneth Williams - what a star!)

Nutty Noah and Niggly Nellie (not sure if this was its name, they used to travel around in this weird spotty flying ship called the Skylark and Nellie used to knit a lot)

The Singing Ringing Tree - this was a multipart drama from East Germany, badly dubbed into English and played daily over the summer holidays. There were slightly too many episodes for the holiday, so we never saw the beginning or the end, and it never made a great deal of sense. Everybody I've ever met who saw it found it terrifying. Especially the dwarf.

The "Charley Says" ads

Any of the public information films eg, "Driver fatigue" and especially the escalator one. This featured a lovely dollie getting horribly mutilated after being dropped on an escalator. I think this was to show you what would happen if you messed around on escalators. Again, everybody I've ever met who saw it found it terrifying.

There was also a live action drama in the 70s, which had a title sequence that showed time sort of juddering to a halt, I can't remember much about it but it scared the shit out of me.

However, the first time I saw teletubbies and Pokemon, I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought they were piss takes. I loath Boohbahs, Tweenies, and Ballamory which truly is the Village of the damned! Have you seen "Tiny Planets" with Bing and Bong? Aw they are soooooo cute, until they accepted sponsorship.......

I never found it too disturbing, although while many children watch it, there are some bits which are quite adult.

A lot of adult stuff creeps into kids cartoons, I was sent a Rainbow flash thing the other day pouring with innuendo... filth I tells ya!!
Even in the movies, like Shrek, remeber that bit when Lord Farquat (sp?) was in bed drinking wine, looking at a picture of Princess Fiona?

Never much liked "Rosie and Jim" or "Tots TV", never was a big fan of spongey faces. "Brum" was something I didn't much like either, but I remember getting some fun from it. Me and a friend used to cover up the 'r' in his name when it came up in big letters on the screen. Well, we thought we were funny.

Urban Myth
Contrary to popular belief, the names of his crew were not particularly smutty. 'Master Bates', 'Seaman Staines' and 'Roger the Cabin Boy' (plus the later addition of 'Simon the Bar Steward') being the names often quoted as proving the programme's dodginess. The Guardian was not the only publication which had to make an apology after printing the story that the BBC had withdrawn the program after finding out the dodgy names. It is a shame, but unfortunately John Ryan did not choose these names. They would have made the program even better, though. 

The story may have come about from the name "Master Mate", which seems to have sometimes been slightly mispronounced.  In the episode Fair Exchange (BBC video, "Seafaring Tales" ), part of Pugwash's final line doesn't sound quite like it is supposed to.  Click on the link to hear the clip (25k) - his voice certainly could be misconstrued!

Tot's tv! Didn't they live in a big house and there was a little dog thing that peeped out from corners and stalked them or something? I think my mum bought me a toy of that when I was younger, that was quite disturbing.
