With all of Elmo's love performed greatly and formerly b y Kevin Clash, who explains in Being Elmo documentary, many people find him scary. Is there supposed to be dark cruel intentions for Elmo? Maybe "Satanic"? Or is Anti-Elmo Humor just gone wild? EDIT: Elmo does remind me of the Pillsbury Doughboy, another "tickler", and that Doughboy scared the crap out of me with his giggle when I was little, so I guess I can see where they are coming from? But Elmo as a killer? Really?
