    Another thing that used to scare me was when they would show clips of "That Old Black Magic". I was really little and I didn't know the words and seeing Kermit wearing that black wig really creeped me out, though I was never scared of "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face".

    Oooh! I remember that. They played the song "If" by Bread while that was going on. That song still gives me the willies. That was really creepy and even though I was only about five when I saw that it really stayed with me. So did Alpha Centauri by Crystal Gayle with the spirits floating around behind her.

    There were quite a few Muppets that scared me when I was a kid.

    There was the Beautiful Day Monster who always did scary negative things sometimes.

    There was one where a girl was twiddling a stick around a wooden fence. But it turned out to be a huge grass monster with teeth. But the girl managed to scare it away by growling.

    And there was this Muppet News flash skit where furniture was turning into monsters where this guy was watching the news and his sofa, drawer, and lamp turn into monsters and chase him out of his house. When the guy finally escaped and got back in, his TV turned into a scary toothy monster and ate him. And it ended with the Newsman's desk eating him. That totally freaked me out!

    Okay, don't know what they're called but I always called them the Yip Yip's. They're these alien dudes, and one was red and one was blue and they would go "Yip Yip, Yip Yip uhhhhhhhhuuuuuu uhhhhhhhuuhhhhhhh." Scared the bejezzers outta me. For some reason I think I remember that creppy Alphabet Guy. And the weird monster Rock/flower guy. Strange, seeing as I wasn't alive in the 8o's until the end. :confused: :confused:

    OK, does anyone out there remember a scary blue monster, with eyelids that retracted and made his eyes bigger and scarier. I think his name was Fred and he had a mouth that turned down at the edges. He spoke with a very deep, rumbly voice. He always scared me. I remember there was one skit where he was talking to Ernie (I think) and he let out this terrible roar. The screen went from color to a blinding white and the skit ended. Geez, I just gave myself goosebumps!

    Animal and the Jabberwock from the Brooke Shields episode of TMS, and I am still afraid of the latter.

    I think the one that scared me the most was the "Trudge Trudge" monster, not so much for its appearance as for the rage with which it lashed out at the "Streaka Streaka" monster.

    Two muppets:

    The original Sammy the Snake---the green and purple striped one who sang about the letter S on Sesame Street. There was something so evil looking about him, with his tongue hanging out and those half-lidded eyes. It freaked me out watching him hiss and see a stream of "S's" floating out of his mouth. Eeeegh.....

    Beautiful Day Monster. Darn. He was front and center in all my nightmares.

    Both those Muppets made me eventually run out of the room with my hands over my ears each time they came on the television.

    Scary Sesame Street Muppets

    As a kid I had nightmares of that green muppet who wore a trench coat and black hat and tried to sell Ernie letters on the Street. His name I think was Lefty, and he had an aspirated voice. He'd say, "psst Ernie, would you like to buy an 'O'.

    Probably not as scary as some of the early day monsters. However, I remember to this day as a five year old having many nightmares that the guy was hidiing under my bed and was going to bite my face off with his pointed green head and sneeky manner.

    What was that weird face that was made up of mainly white/coloured lines? I dunno if it was on Sesame Street, or what, but that thing always used to give me the shivers and shakes.

    Only monster/puppet things on TV that actually ever made me try to hide from them, though, were the various Dr. Who creatures...

    As a child, the Muppet that scared me most was Sweetums. HBO used to show 'The Frog Prince' special a lot and I used to get so scared when he started to try and club Robin and Kermit to death... -shiver-
