The Rock bottom ep where spongebob cant catch a bus.
That episode would make me so uncomfortable and have a little anxiety because it was really hard having to watch spongebob suffer events out of his control. Not to mention the way the road was built made walking home an impossible thing, spongebob was literally trapped and alone. I especially hated the part where the bus would seem to avoid spongebob when he would try to wait for it. I was so grateful when that fish helped spongebob get home.

this horrifying character in ren and stimpy. just an old man who was always naked and popping up to be near ren and stimpy and try to touch them. he's literally just a molestor?? i was terrified of him. did john k get molested. why the fuck else would he add this in
yeah he groomed a 16 year old. he is a piece of shit. still it seems clear he was also abused as a kid, he is obsessed with his dad and writes a lot of angry abusive
father characters. not that that excuses it but it’s damn clear in the cartoon
I recommend the ren and stimpy documentary, if you haven't already watched it, which gives a good balance between acknowledging john k is a predator and appreciating the cartoon for the amazing, fucked up show it was. >>258971
it's really hard to pick the most disturbing ren and stimpy episode but this is a strong contender kek

Gave me nightmares still terrifies me
This is the only episode of goosebumps that genuinely freaks me out, we had something traumatic happen to one of our cats years before I thought the cat was going to come back to kill us >>258982
People always bring up this or King Ramses when they talk about Courage but personally these never bothered me much. The real disturbing episode was the one (I can't remember the name) where there was a man that was slowly becoming his house or something? The walls were turning into flesh and each room had the internal organs iirc. And the longer you stayed the floor would try to digest you. Apparently they wanted to use this concept in Monster House as well but it was deemed too graphic yet Courage did it years before on a cartoon channel for kids. Also the ep where his parents are sent to space but it's just more sad than scary. >>259050
Noseybonk looks like an SCP or some Candle cove shit, I can't believe he was real and shown to kids
File: 1669726690019.jpeg (92.62 KB, 1177x1849, Heffalumps.jpeg)
memory unlocked. i had this on vhs and the Heffalumps definitely gave me nightmares. i think it was how they went from happy cute looking elephants into these sinister chaotic creatures in an instance
for me the most disturbing episodes of courage are either freaky fred or the one with the cat-woman who is running away from her abusive
boyfriend?? like, holy shit, the second one especially i'm pretty shocked they got away with it. i remember her and courage run across some train tracks to an apartment and the cat embraces her bunny friend, who seems to be implied to be her girlfriend. such a fucked up episode with a somewhat happy ending, she does get away, but it was a horrifying glimpse at abusive
relationships in a kid's show.

This show. And no it's not because the characters are clowns, I don't have a fear of clowns. I think it's because the main girl is playing a five year old but is clearly much older. Also her little doll is creepy because it's alive but doesn't speak. Also each episode the main girl gets on the floor and moves her arms and legs like a clock, encouraging the viewer to do the same.
The plots of the episodes were weird. There was an episode where the little doll thing kept stealing the other girl's milk bottle and sucking it under the pillow. There was also an episode where the main girl PISSED HERSELF, it gave me such bad second-hand embarrassment I fucking hated it.

The tapeworm episode of Mr Meaty is pretty bad but every episode was uncomfortable in some way. My tinfoil is that the show is meant to be a deconstruction of kids shows that rely on gross out humor.
Oh my god I had completely forgotten how scary that ep was to me! I also really was freaked by the episode where Francine can’t control her anger and she keeps bottling it up and has a dream her head pops off kek I was an angry kid (frustrated with abusive
dad) before I went to therapy and had a really overactive imagination so I was worried it was gonna happen to me. >>259057
nonna the man becoming house episode was terrifying. Same with Freaky Fred of course, but to be fair as a child I was SUPER sensitive to anything scary bc I had horrible intrusive thoughts. An episode of Goosebumps once kept me from sleep for DAYS.

This might be a weird one but the Alaskan Bull Worm scene from Spongebob. The way Sandy talks when she realizes the worm is bigger than she thought always unsettled me, then the handpainted reveal of the creature with those dead, beady eyes and mangled teeth. I'm pretty sure it stemmed from falling asleep with this episode on the TV and having a nightmare, but in hindsight still fuck this thing.

I was barely 3 when my mom tried to have me watch A Goofy movie. Opening sequence of Max's nightmare made me scared and I cried. I was able to watch the movie when I was a little bit older but the nightmare part still makes me uneasy.
This fuckin film scared me so much as a child my school had a note that I was to be warned if they were going to play it. I had a teacher who ignored my fear who got very angry when my reaction to her turning on the film was to turn around, block my ears and say lalaallala. I was like 7 I'm not sure what her beef was. Proper wakeup crying nightmares I had whenever I saw even a snippet of this film.>>259350

This Canadian show Tipi Tales creeped me out. Most kids were scared by the puppets but what bothered me more was the quiet eerie vibe it had, plus it always aired at like 11 pm which added to that weird feeling.
Did anyone watch Grizzly Tales for Gruesome kids? It really didn't pull punches outside of literally showing explicit gore. The lessons however, quite good, was kind of nice for assholes to get what was coming to them instead of just Steven Universe-esque everyone can be forgiven.
Still unnerving though, even the opening was gross.>>259426

I remember this one episode of Fairly Odd Parents where Timmy resurrected his dead gerbil and the whole episode is about it trying to kill him as revenge for him not taking care of it properly. They gave it such a creepy design with it being half dead and its bones sticking out and stuff. At the end I think it forgives him for accidentally killing it, but the last shot shows the graveyard of all the other animals he had buried in the yard rising out the ground and focuses on a dead rabbit right in front the screen. It was such a jarring thing to see in something that played in the middle of the day like FOP, if I didn't see it then I would assume this was a fanmade creepypasta thing

It was only heavily promoted to children and not technically a children's show but a lot of Doctor Who freaked me the fuck out as a child. Especially the episode where they went to the mars base. For a while I was convinced the suicide scene at the end was only a deleted scene I had remembered from somewhere and was shocked when I watched it again as an adult and it was actually in the episode.

Reading this thread has me realizing I barely remember my childhood.
Anyways, not sure if this counts as it's not a TV show but I remembered how the Narnia movie(s) freaked me out as a kid. Some examples include
>The part where Mr Tumnus and those other beings are turned to stone
>The part where Mr Tumnus hypnotizes Lucy with his flute playing
>The part where Aslan gets sacrificed
There might have been more but I hardly remember
I was an adult by the time Grim Adventures came out and I can imagine it being quite disturbing for kids in some places, even though the theme is literally meant to be morbid. Such a great show though, probably the last cartoon network show I enjoyed (other than maybe Adventure Time).
Watching Ren & Stimpy as a kid definitely accounts for a lot of my fucked up taste in media now.

I had a few DVDs of Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics as a kid, but Bluebeard haunted me for years.
From what I remember, the story is that Josephine is a girl from a poor family who meets Bluebeard. He's a rich man, or maybe a prince, and she moves in with him. He allows her to go into any room in his huge mansion to look at all the cool shit he has. He mentions that she isn't allowed into one of the rooms but gives her the key anyway. Her curiosity gets the better of her and she enters anyway, to find that the room is full of the corpses of all of his previous wives displayed on the walls. The roses in the centre of the room turn to blood and start filling up the room. It was an absolutely terrifying episode that I watched often for reasons unknown to me. Morbid curiosity or something, I'm not sure. The theme tune to the series absolutely slaps though.
